Honeymoon - Mexico

So Dave planned the honeymoon all on his own and kept it a secret until after graduation. We went to a resort on the beach in Rosarito, Mexico, just south of Tijuana. It was quite the experience. We flew from Albuquerque to San Diego, where we rented a car and drove to Rosarito. If you have never experienced the driving in Mexico, I wouldn't recommend it. Shoot, I wouldn't recommend it even if you HAVE already experienced it. We almost got side swiped 3 times, the road signs are impossible to follow, and it's basically terrifying.

We have a time share with Worldmark by Wyndham that allots us 6000 points a year to use throughout North America or to exchange for anywhere in the world through RCI. Basically it's a really cool timeshare. So we used some of our points for this year for our honeymoon. We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo at a resort on the beach. Most of the time we were there it was overcast and a little chilly, so we spent half the day watching TV. It was so relaxing! After all the stress of planning a wedding and graduation, it was the perfect week. The one day that it was sunny, we went out and enjoyed the sun, maybe a little too much. We were both sunburned to the gills. I was still peeling a month later.

We did all sorts of fun things on the beach. Our first day we rode horses for $10 each for half an hour. The horses even galloped! We were well prepared with our shorts and flip flops. We both had scrapes on the insides of our legs and dave's flip flops fell out of the saddle where he had tucked them, and we had to go searching for one. But it was well worth it.

We would also look at the tide pools in the rocks every day, hoping for new creatures. We saw plenty of sea anenomes, and even a tennis shoe! No hermit crabs or starfish though. There was an abandoned, beached boat on the beach that was pretty interesting. Every time we passed it, one of us had to say, "Here I am!" and the other had to reply, "There you are!" Hillarious, right?

Here I am!

There you are!

We found a rock on the beach, and thought it was an excellent perch, so we decided to do the karate kid pose on it.

Ironically, I don't think either of us has seen that movie. That just tells how much it is engrained into our culture. "Ahhh, yes, young grasshopper. Wax on, Wax off."
