2/11/09: Day 2 Mamita’s and Bad Boys

Wake up early to the sounds of construction (you’re not in Playa if there isn’t construction) and one of the workers singing Santa Clause is Coming to Town. Tell me that isn’t a bit odd when you wake up in Mexico……..with a hang over! I think it’s time to go to the beach..

Here are some pics of the walk to Mamita’s

5th Avenue around 30 Calle....so nice


My future home when I hit it big




And two of my future condos...amazing what has been going up on the street to Mamita's..not sure if it's good or bad



And finally arrive at Mamita's.




Nina relaxing


Random beach pics



First pic is Nina and Gina in the water. Second pic is Ty and Penny in the water.






Bad Boys next!!!!!

2/12/09: Day 2 Part 2 Bad Boys.

After a long day at the beach we all join in the Thursday night ritual of going to Bad Boys for some great music and people on the beach. We decide it's a good idea to go there first and then eat....

And so it begins...


Rumor has it that none of the waiters have ever spilled.


Nina and her new Mexican boyfriend...I think that is one of the waiters.


The whole group. Nina, Ty, me Penny and Gina. Poor Ty, 11 years old and had to deal with all these girls...yick! He is such a good kid.


This action will come back to haunt me in the morning


Dancing and sassing.


Thanks in advance Susie QRoo for the following pics They feature Penny, me, Susie QRoo and Rob (robmackay)




I love this...even when they plaster it right on the dispenser I still forget!


So...after many margarita's, cervesas, dancing and socializing we finally decide that we are starving! So we head over to Carboncito's.



Everyone takes the pic of the jellyfish lamp store....and so did I


Then in my Margarita enduced state-of-mind I think it would be really, really fun to hire a Mariachi Band...have another Steph. Susie will never forgive me for this.


Oh..and did I mention that I paid 50 Pesos for one song


Fun night...I honestly can't tell you where or what we did after this so hopefully when Penny returns from her second trip to Playa this year She can help fill in the blanks!

Tomorrow...MY BIRTHDAY!
On deck: Dog wash day and Akumal.

Until tomorrow....

2/13/09: My Birthday!

We wake up and head over to La Cueva Del Chango for some much needed breakfast. What a cool place! It's set back in a lush jungle environment and has great food.







We then head over to Bad Boys..scene of the crime from last night..to spend the day at the beach.






Another great day at the beach...now off to celebrate!
First stop is PG's Sandbox for "Mezcalina and Silvergirl's First (and hopefully) Annual Stick Peep Meet" and the best shrimp tacos I have ever had.



My very own personalized name tag for the Birthday girl



Nina with the band at PG's, Crazy Train. These guys were awesome. Great assortment of 80's music.



My very first shot of La Pinta....that one was in honor of Silvergirl (Kim). She was one of the hosts but ended up not being able to make it



This next series of photos is with Lenny the dog. This dog gets more action than well...you know what I'm saying. He even got his own nametag He sure is cute




And Lenny with his owner Babaloo (Rick).



We leave the Peep Meet early....we have some dancing to do!
Wander down Fifth Avenue and pass a night club that we had received a flyer for informing us that it's ladies night!....Penny walks up the the reception desk and informs them we are her for the party..."OK" and we proceed upstairs. Wow, look at all the beautiful people....did I mention the flyer we got was for Thursday? Ya, we just crashed some model party Oh well, let's stay for one and move on. I managed to grab a few shots from the roof top of 5th Avenue.





Next stop Tequila Barrel!





So this photo needs a little explanation. This is the owner or manager of the bar. I was so amazed at what a big deal they were making of my b-day..how nice...they took pictures of us, he put on this stupid get up...we had shots. Now if I would have been thinking, I would have remembered that they take your picture and 10 minutes later bring out a Corona bottle with your picture on it and ask for 150 Pesos! NO THANK YOU! Well I still got the picture and for free!



Last stop Coco Maya for dancing. This is where the evening ended.



What a great way to spend a Birthday...I had all my favorite Chica's with me and I'm in Playa

Tomorrow dog wash day at the Peanut Pet Shelter.
On deck Akumal for some snorkeling.

2/14/09: Dog Wash Day at Peanut Pet Shelter! Valentine's Day.

So now we've had a few days of self-indulgence, beach and partying and I think it's time to switch gears and give some love to some very deserving puppies and dogs. I'm sure most of you are aware of The Peanut Pet Shelter and what a wonderful organization this is. It amazes me the volume of donations and volunteer support this place gets. I went last year for the first time to experience it for myself. I have to say the emotional impact for me was bittersweet… you see some dogs that have suffered injuries from I don’t want to know what, skin conditions but of course there are very healthy dogs and pups too. It took everything I had not to cry when I first walked in this year… but then I reminded myself that they are now safe and in good hands and hopefully will have a permanent home someday.

Piles of puppies taking an afternoon nap





This little girl can't be in the sun due to a skin condition. I think someone may have mentioned that it's been cleared up? I hope so.



Jan at the wash tub.



"I'll take you home little guy."



"And you too."





Meeting and greating. I think that is Maureen on the left.



Beautiful full breed Weimaraner



Gina on rinse duty. That is Eric in the background (bluespicker and Jan's hubby). Eric was on nail clipping duty and did a great job! They seem to be huge supporters of The Pet Shelter and always bring meds, leashes and other supplys that the shelter needs. Kudos to Jan and Eric





Look at the love....



Great day at the Peanut Pet Shelter!

Tomorrow Akumal
On Deck El Paraiso Beach
