Winter in Michigan is very long so we like to get away to a warm place for awhile. Last week we spent in Playa del Carmen in Mexico. Our hotel was the Riu Playacar and it was excellent. The sea was so beautiful; food was delicious; such a lovely escape from the snow and ice at home. We spent our days relaxing, enjoying the sea, eating too much, taking long walks, and reading. Now we return to real life!
