Oregon really represented in Cancun this year!
Apparently, they had this sculpture installed just for us.
The restaurant was Harry's Prime Steak House and Raw Bar.
The conclusion of the meal is celebrated with a giant pile of cotton candy.
They also rescued my shoe which fell apart on the way to the ladies room. It was an amazing display of the service they provide. I was immediately and gracefully offered the arm of one of the servers standing nearby who escorted me to the restroom. On the way, he signaled two women attendants who joined me in the lounge area. One examined my ankle (which was fine) and the other raced off with my shoe. She returned in three minutes with this. It worked well enough to get us back to the resort after dinner.
Cancun is always a great time for catching up with the friends we don't get to see nearly enough. Luckily, Simone was able to escape for a quick weekend recently to visit me in Portland, and even better: we got to hang out a lot in Cancun this year. Unfortunately, (and fortunately too) I will be missing her on the trip next year as she now has a little bun in the oven. Cheers to the Wells Family!

For the first time EVER in Cancun, Greg and I enjoyed a date night...
Just the two of us!
We went to this crazy Thai restaurant that had private cabanas over the water.
This was our "table." We had to walk along the dock and climb a primitive-looking staircase over the water to get to our hut.
The food was good... but the date was terrific!
They restored the beaches in the last year. The difference is amazing. I have no idea how they did it... I'm just so happy they did. We even had some nice hot weather in which to appreciate it!
Such a great place for self-portraits!
My California peeps.

Pre-partying: Woot woot!
Super-duper fun to catch up with Mrs. Cainey on the trip. While Rachelle was able to swing by Portland on a recent trip to Oregon, it wasn't nearly a long enough visit to satisfy my needs!
I miss you Sweets!
There is nothing quite as lovely as a steak that is perfectly done.
Dessert for those that cannot decide:
"I'll take one of everything!"
See you next year Cancun!
