Home to Real November

 Oh, Mexico!  I loved looking at the ocean.  I think every room in the resort had this gorgeous view.
Here we have James and Grampy getting ready for some breakfast.
 James tried everything, but I think he missed his daily pickle.  His daddy has become an expert pickle maker and when they were eating their dinner at home last night James squawked for pickles!
 Wow, right?

 The pool was warm! (James only shivered a little)

 What a place!  I loved the scenes around us.  Puerto Vallarta is welcoming and warm.
 Most of the leaves fell off the trees while we were gone.

I read a moving novel while we were away.  Have you read Island of the World by Michael D. O'Brien?  My friend Leslie recommended it (she gave it 5 stars on Goodreads and she doesn't give 5 stars often).  I am so grateful.  I read the electronic edition but I shall buy the real book.  It's that good.  
I'm very happy to be home sweet home.

Wow what a pretty place to visit! I love the pictures. Your leaves all fell in a week?
I am glad you are home and you had a nice time. What is that book about?

Your vacation with family sounds so nice. What a difference in the weather we're having. It's been raining and windy and not the sun is out but cooler. I'm so glad you're back home safely.
Take care and thanks for sharing your nice vacation pictures.
