Wednesday, February 25 / Puerto Vallarta

This is a post for our cruise in February, though it has taken me until May to post it. Thus, the incorrect date.
On Wednesday, we docked in Puerto Vallarta, a familiar city to us since we lived nearby for 5 years. However, the city has grown in the last 15 years. Just after docking, we took a shore excursion to an isolated bay south of Puerto Vallarta, that is accessible only by boat. SItuated at the base of a mountain and on the coastline, there is no road that reaches it. Along the way, we stopped and kayaked and snorkeled in a lagoon-like small bay. We also ate lunch on the catamaran.
After going ashore, we hiked up into the mountain a little to view a waterfall. Nice spot, though full of tourists like us. The whole trip lasted about 6 hours.

After returning to Puerto Vallarta, we went to a nearby mall to meet two of our best friends from Tepic, Flor and Pepe Zaragoza. We chatted for hours, catching up on 15 years of news. It was a heavenly blessing to be with them and, other than the fact that our children had all grown and we were all a little grayer and wiser, it seemed like no time at all since we had parted. That is how it is with close friends.
