silent sunday: riviera maya, mexico

These images were taken at the Grand Velas Riviera Maya, an all-inclusive resort about 60 miles from Cancun and less than 5 miles from Playa del Carmen.

My wonderful husband, Sam, gets credit for taking about half of the photos you see above, including the one with his toes peeking up in the kayak. I’m trying to figure out how to get him to contribute regularly here on the blog. Wish me luck.

    What lovely photos! It looks as though you had a great trip. I myself am just itching to get back to NYC as I haven’t been since February of 2007! I definitely need to get back there and get tasting some great seafood and sipping on some lovely martinis!

    This looks like heaven. To me NYC is magical. I dream of a visit. It seems like the most wonderful place on earth.

    So happy for you that you had such a great time in NYC with hubby! Couple getaways are SO important & wow…NYC, I can only imagine!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Your photographs are beautiful…I feel like I’m there. Great to see springtime, since I live in South Florida. The camera for me would be a huge bummer….but good for you, trying to roll with it.

    Can’t wait to meet you at FBF Orlando in a few weeks. Yes…Twitter is “magic.”

    We’re all so lucky to have found each other through twitter. I know my life is my better for it.

    New York never looked so beautiful – I wish it were closer to San Francisco! What a wonderful opportunity for you and a well deserved vacation.

    I guess I need to give NYC another chance. I spent one day there with my daughter and sister a few years ago after a wonderful vacation in Boston. We were tired, it was hot and those two girls decided a trip on the subway to see the Statue of Liberty was on their ‘have to’ list. Next time I’ll follow the beat to my own drummer and check out the city and food places I would love to visit.

    Love the pictures…even if fewer than you would have liked!

    I’ve pored over these pictures and soaked them in. Living vicariously, you know. We should plan this again soon. When I can actually be there! xox
