Darren's Happy Place

We are now back from our 12 day trip to what my small circle of friends refer to as "Darren's happy place". From the start of this vacation I had intended on writing an epic trip report, but as I sat here this morning, watching the snow fall, I realized something.
Playa is something different and something the same the for all of us who continue to come back to this slice of paradise. We each come for our own reasons. Personally, I keep returning because Playa is a place I can let my hair down ( no laughing from those who have met me ), and truly be myself. I am happy here, I smile constantly, and I don't shy away from meeting new people. These things come easy in Playa for me, and each year I am able to take a little bit of that back to my "real" life in Canada which I think helps me grow as a father, a husband, and a friend.
So, while I could fill page after page with words and pictures of what we ate, who we met, what we saw, and where we went, I won't. Like I said, we each come here for our own reasons, and I'm sure that many of our experiences overlap, so you have seen the pictures from another angle and heard the stories from another perspective. If you have any specific questions, I will try to answer them, but other than that, I am content in saying that this trip delivered all that I needed it to, and we are already making plans to go back.
