Upgrading my iphone is on my list of things to do this year, but this old iphone 4 took some not so bad pics while tagging along with me in Mexico. Here are a few of my favorite:

Pelican beggars

The pelicans on this beach have found easy street! They're obviously regulars as the cook would toss them a scrap of fish every so often.

Oh my gosh, those cheeks!

We had to pass by this colorful graveyard to get to one of the beaches.

I don't know about where you live, but ol'man winter just won't let go where I hang my hat. We virtually never have snow in March and it's practically at the half way point and it's still coming down!

I woefully remember this idyllic sound.

Anyhoo, I've been promised that spring will arrive eventually.

I suppose a collection of Mexico pictures wouldn't be complete without at least one “beach babe” shot, right?

My lovely daughter and me enjoying a yummy red drink delivered to us right on the beach.

As you can tell, I loved it there and I'm already planning to go back next year.

And now for the bookmark giveaway

I picked these gorgeous hand-painted bookmarks up (bought from a beach vendor) and will giveaway one to 3 special winners. Open internationally, and I'll write a personal note on the back.

  1. You and your daughter look like your enjoying your vacation. Those cheeks are adorable. The bookmarks are gorgeous. Would love the chance to win one.

  2. Seems like Mexico is as good as I thought. Perhaps I too will visit in near future. And yeah, you need to upgrade your iPhone. I mean, iPhone 4 is quite old… Get an iPhone 7. And Thanks for offering the bookmarks. That too, with a personal note! Now I am getting exited…

  3. One jealous, frozen Canadian here, lol! Lovely pics! I’m glad you had a great time! So thoughtful of you to pick up some goodies for your fans as well! ❤️

  4. Fab pictures love the cute kid with those big round cheeks. Super cute. And why can’t our graveyards be that colourful? Amazing! Gorgeous bookmarks, I’d soooooo love to win one. How’s Gingers Golds adventures coming along? Can’t wait to read it.xx

  5. I admit, I am a little jealous, too! We just had snow yesterday and getting more on Tuesday. What a lovely trip you had!

  6. I love your Clockwise and Perception series! Just re-read the whole Clockwise series (all six books!) this past week! As Ms. Birdlady, you know I love birds! ❤ Thanks for offering such a great prize! 🙂

  7. Loved the pictures, especially the pelicans! They remind me of Daytona Beach where I grew up & we always had a couple hanging around looking for a hand out when fishing at the beach.

  8. Lovely and now I wanna go! Or maybe live there permanently out of the reach of snow and ice! Thank you for sharing!
