But I DID get really excited this afternoon when I booked Gearry's and my summer vacation flights and accommodations and wanted to share the awesome pictures of where we'll be staying, even if it means I'm not doing the lesson-planning/paper-writing/researching I should be doing right now. We're headed to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for 7 nights, 8 days in mid-to-late June, just to relax and have fun and celebrate our 2-year wedding anniversary (can you believe it?!). I can't wait! I have never before needed a vacation this badly!
We rented a one-bedroom condo -- we generally go the condo route when traveling, rather than a hotel, because we like having a kitchen and a little more space -- on Playas Gemelas (Twin Beaches), with a view of Los Arcos, one of Puerto Vallarta's well-known landmarks (a rock formation in the ocean that includes several small islands offering reefs, tunnels, caves, and arches and is known as a haven for a wide variety of sea life, from sharks and rays to octopus, sea turtles, and lots of fish). Gearry and I went snorkeling on our honeymoon in Key West and had a great time, so we're excited to take advantage of this awesome snorkeling opportunity.
