Jenn and I met via the internet, using command-line email etc, before there was a web. I was in NZ, she in the US. I visited her in February – March 1994, staying in her dorm room for about 5 weeks. This pic is from a photo shoot we did then. #dejus365 #ThrowbackThursday

Cancun vacation, day 6

A sad day was upon us: time to go home.

After room service breakfast on the balcony (of which I didn’t take a photo, but it was much the same as on day 2), we checked out and caught a shuttle to the airport.

There we had Margaritaville for lunch (not super Mexican, but the best available option):

They had some interesting decorations:

After a stopover in Houston, where we were able to complete our Global Entry applications, we caught the connecting flight to Portland, which we had upgraded to first class:

Though I was stuck with a coach meal (oh the humanity!):

Sighting Portland:

Now we’re home.

It’s been a most enjoyable week, and we’ll certainly look forward to future trips to various places in Mexico.

Cancun vacation, day 5

Today was pretty much the opposite of yesterday: just lounging by a pool, instead of a long excursion.

We had a buffet breakfast, and I enjoyed the fresh-from-the-comb honey:

We then spent the day lounging by the pool, facing the beach:

An iguana visited us:

And a number of birds:

One of several cocktails:

A gazebo over the water:

Dinner at an open air restaurant:

We reluctantly head home tomorrow. It’s rare to not be ready to go home after several days away, but that’s how we feel now.
