Goooooood morning Mexico!

It is a sunny day, and at this hour, quiet on the beach.


I have to make a correction to my last post. I said we had Cucaracha shots. They were actually B 52’s and they were Ian’s call. Since I can’t remember much about them, I will have to do them again the next time I am there.

We head off for breakfast at Bella Vista where the usual suspects make their appearance.

After breakfast I head off to the beach and Zung heads off to the office. Wouldn’t this be an awesome office view?


It looks like they are setting up for a small wedding.


The bride is pumped!


Or maybe she is just getting ready to rumbles, because a short time later I see this…


I am confused because I know there is only one wedding a day allowed (at each hotel – so theoretically there could be five weddings at the Iberostar complex). I see a wedding planner looking person and ask her when the wedding will be. It’s possible that it is a wedding between two women and they wanted to take pictures separately beforehand. This is not the case. The wedding planner looking lady says it is not a real wedding. It is some kind of photography competition.

I wonder who won?

All this wedding confusion has made me hungry, so we go to lunch. This is the view from outside La Brisa toward the pool.


I personally prefer the view towards the beach.

Zung celebrates a hard mornings work with a Victoria beer.


I ordered and then got some apps from the buffet.


Then I had a quesadilla.


Zung had shrimp fajitas.


We finished with some coconut ice cream.


So far, a day well spent.

    Hello,I am here right now- our third time, and having a great time as usual! Your friend Daniel made us some delicious drinks last night, I tried the cucumber mojito- it was good,but I still love the margaritas that he makes -the bestšŸ˜ƒ This is our 3 visit to the Grand, but have stayed at the Lindo many times when our kids were young…. We also love Secrets Maroma, did I see somewhere, maybe tripadvisor , that you will be going there? I will be curious to hear your comparison of the two…
    Also, used Tami for years,she is great!
    Thanks for the blog!

      My husband loves Daniel’s margaritas. I’ve never been to Secrets Maroma. We are going to spend a few days at the new Secrets Playa Mujueres with friends on our next trip. It was a decision based on spending time with this group of friends as opposed to wanting to try a different resort. I don’t really have a desire to stay at Secrets Maroma. I’m really completely content at the Grand. Enjoy the rest of your trip! Tell Daniel I’ll see him soon.

    Love your pictures! Especially, my favorite coconut ice cream;) Cheers to Zung for doing something productive while he was there (and I mean drinking the Victoria lol!)
