Yet Another Installment

I know all three of you have been anxiously awaiting another installment of the Spring Break (did you forget to do the Whoooo! with the rock hand?) 2008 Mexico trip. So, here 'tis....







This was on the front of the Hard Rock Acapulco. It was a waterfall. There was water trickling down over the words. How can one go wrong with a quote from The Beatles?







I love a good sick-sense of humor. Since it's impossible to see it in this picture, the license plate on the car reads "God is my co-pilot."






A stunning view of Acapulco Bay.



This is the beach we layed on/swam in every day. This is a view from the cliffs in Acapulco. The evil air-traffic controllers make sure that every plane that leaves Acapulco airport flies directly over this beach when departing the city. We watched the planes go over each day knowing full well when our day came to leave we'd get one last view of the beach.







"Every beach has its dog." Jimmy, if you like these lyrics, call us. There will be a small copyright fee. This is Aqui....(come here in Spanish, though I probably have it spelled wrong.) He was a perfect gentleman. He just wanted to be petted. I just wanted to take him home.




This is Aqui's girlfriend, Alli (a distorted "there" in Spanish.) I really don't know if she was Aqui's girlfriend, but at least that's the story I conjured up in my mind. She was adorable and chased the birds away when we asked and again, just wanted to be petted. And again, I wanted to just take her home.



All together now....Ahhhhh!

Great photos! I would love to be on a beach somewhere - anywhere! - rather than at home, painting, again. I swear my house is growing trim to be painted.

Aww, Aqui is such a cute doggie! Gorgeous beach pics, too.

I gotta get away!

How gorgeous and those doggies... I'm a sucker for a beach dog.

We're headed to ACA next week.

It looks like you had a good time. =) Is there anything you would recommend we absolutely do or don't do?

We're home from ACA and I have to tell you that I thought of this blog every single day we were down there.

We met the beach dogs on our first day.

I made a collection of photos of them on my Flickr, which can be found on my blog.

There are now FOUR of them and they are a tight pack.

When we left I wanted to take each of them home w/us.

Did you know there are virtually NO laws protecting animals in Mexico??? I hadn't a clue...

I just wanted to let you know they are still there, working the tourists and living the beach dog life...
