Abaco




We went from fall in Argentina to summer in Abaco. What a change! My luggage was much lighter on this flight. LOL! This was a vacation to relax. We went boating, fishing and snorkeling; laid on the beach, had dinner with friends, had lunch with friends :). I so love to eat! LOL!
It was nice having friends from home with us and making new friends. Even Pablo was there from Argentina! I love the whole 'lodge' setting. Everyone sitting around a great big table eating together and getting to know each other. After dinner we'd all move outside to either sit by the fire or fish from the dock. It was a great vacation. I came home tan, relaxed and renewed. Oh...now I want to learn to fly fish too! Add it to my list. LOL!

Argentina

My first visit to Argentina a few weeks ago was a dream come true! Who wouldn't fall in love with this country and these sweet people? We spent time in Buenos Aires and also just outside of Cordoba. In BA we did lots of site seeing, shopping (got some cute boots and a jacket :) and ate at some really good restaurants (I so miss Ramone-one of our waiters).
Cordoba was a lot more laid back. We stayed in a gorgeous lodge, went horse back riding and explored the grounds around the lodge. Senor Chevez, a butler at the lodge, was so very kind and patient with us. He even helped us learn a bit of Spanish.
We also got to go out in the field where the guys were dove hunting to have lunch. I got a private shotgun shooting lesson from our friend Pablo. I actually hit the target-once! LOL! I plan on practicing a whole lot more.
My favorite part, as usual, was visiting with the people there and getting to know them. I really can't wait to go back (soon!).

My Ballerinas 2010



I love that my girls love ballet! Another year of dance is finished. They're always so sad. This summer we have some special dance things planned. Just a little longer to wait...
