Today was a WONDERFUL day. I got to go to the spa. My friend Diane on Ceilydh is a travel writer and gets to do all kinds of cool things and then write about them. Lucky me, she decided to write about the spa at the Mariott in Puerto Vallarta and invited me to go.
We were able to have full use of the hot tubs, sauna, steam room, showers, etc. When it came time for our treatments, we both got a body scrub and a hot rock massage. Have you ever had one of those? I haven’t. I have to say, I loved it. I thought it was pretty strange when the lady put small hot rocks between my toes, wrapped them up and left them there…but when the massage was over and she started to take them out, I thought “Put back the rocks!! Put back the rocks!! Please don’t let this be over!” It was that good. I really hated to see the day end. Unfortunately, it ended with a bumpy bus ride back to La Cruz and totally negated any relaxation I had gained, but it was good all the same.
If someone were to ask me the one thing I miss more than anything (outside of family), I would say it’s my girl friends. They are few and far between out here. So a day with a friend, no kids, no husbands and it being all about us was absolutely great. Diane wrote a nice post on her blog about our day as it relates to women in cruising for anyone interested... Ceilydh Sets Sail: Cruiser Maintenance
