Dale, Michelle, Rumba the Dog and Super Bool

Dale and Michelle arrived Saturday afternoon to enjoy a week of fun in the sun. Yesterday, we were up early (yes, even Michelle) to go for a long walk on the beach. We went through the market in the town centre where Michelle bought some bling. Then back to the beach as far as the Decameron. On the way, we passed a woman walking her yellow lab. I fell in love with "Rumba" as she was so funny chasing and catching a coconut. At home, we see dogs carrying driftwood, here it's coconuts! Down by the Decameron, Dale, Gail and I sat on a beach towel while Michelle went into the ocean for a dip.

Back home for lunch, then around 5pm we headed into Puerto Vallarta for the evening. I parked just before the Malacon so we could walk the length of it all the way into the Southside. I think we tired these girls out with all the walking! We stopped at CyC's on the beach for a drink, which was great because it was 2 for 1 Happy Hour. Of course, I was driving so not so much Happy for me! Dale ordered a bucket of Corona's because, even though she normally doesn't drink beer, hey, it's Mexico!

On the way back to the Malecon from the Southside we passed the Burro Bar which had a sign outside advertising "5pm Super Bool". I thought we would pee ourselves laughing!

It was the best night to go into PV as we were there to enjoy "family night" on the Malecon. It's a Mexican tradition for entire families to go out on Sunday night to enjoy time together. We love seeing all these happy people holding hands and walking in entire groups from grandparents, parents, teenagers, kids and babies.

We had planned to go to Bubba Gump's for their famous shrimp but because it was Super Bowl Sunday, there were no tables available, so we went to the Cheeky Monkey instead. We shared a bunch of appetizers rather than dinner and it was just right.

We were home about 11pm and all were very tired, so it was straight to bed for all. A very successful first day in Paradise for the McManus'!
