Independence Day Weekend with the Gang

We had a GREAT Fourth of July in Bogalusa, LA.

The town canceled their yearly parade, so some "rebel" friends decided to parade anyways.

We had a BLAST.

People beeping their horns, giving thumbs up, waving, etc.

We finished off with a couple of drinks at "The Breeze".

Hotel Riu Palace Costa Mujeres

Hi gang-

Longest and oldest childhood friend, Amy, and I took a wonderful vacation last month.

We visited the Hotel Riu Palace Costa Mujeres.

A BIG shout-out to my heroes, Richard and Wayne for carting us to our hotel and picking us up upon our return!

OMG!  What a blast!

I've been to several Barcello all-inclusive properties, but I'm now STRICTLY a RIU PALACE fan.

This place was THE ULTIMATE.  Gorgeous beach and pools.  Great food.  FUN bar, "The Square Garden".

The guys at this bar pampered us beyond words!

We had a lovely "Garden View Suite"

The property was extremely isolated.  About a 45 minute drive from the Cancun airport.  That was fine with us.  We had no reason to leave the property.

We got into quite a routine.  We'd start at the Square Garden and drink a few mimosas.

Then head out to our favorite pool or beach.

They kept the beer flowing for us!

After having enough sun and fun, we'd head back to our boys for margaritas!

I cannot recommend this property highly enough!  As soon as this "pandemic" is over, I'm heading back!

A SPECIAL THANK YOU to Darlene Wood at Liberty Travel!  She handled, insurance, private transfers.  Looking forward to booking with her again!
