an artful voyage - our day in Mazatlan

Wednesday, October 14th
Went into Mazatlan with Lori, where we decided to allow ourselves to be talked into listening to a time share pitch.  Yes, the talk was ENDLESS, but in the end, we received free cab fare to and from the resort, several cocktails and lunch, and a few relaxing hours by their pool.

Lori and I on the balcony of one of the many apartments they failed to sell us.

The views weren't bad, though
Make sure you click on this next photo to enlarge it.  Don't you just love the sign on the shuttle?  What????

Some art on the dock
A bottle of wine and a fruit and cheese platter awaited me when I returned to my cabin.  Thanks, Scrapmap! In the background you can see the bottle of champagne I received from them earlier in the week.  What a great organization!

We saw this sunset every night at dinner:

From 9:30-10:30pm my group had a short class with Tim.

Tim is such a good teacher and so organized, we all were able to make these two wearable pieces in just one hour:

Tomorrow we will be in Puerto Vallerta.....

I, too, noticed the "free & compulsory" cab - cracked me up! Thank you for taking a photo of it - that's one I'd like to include in my journal.
I almost wish we were all going back to Mexico next year - your day at the beach looks great!

Hi Eileen, I've been enjoying your posts re the cruise. Now I don't wait for you to announce on ATT group - I just check the blog myself! Love the projects. I'm going to try the necklace you have on this post with the key/keyhole. I can see how you did it except for the last step. You put the chain through 2 jump rings. Looks like they are attached to a larger jump ring. How is that larger one attached to the back of the necklace? Thanks so much for posting your photos. Nice to live vicariously!
