pictures from a resort hotel – part two

Greetings!

A hearty welcome to new and recent blog subscribers.  There are categories and monthly archives on the blog site for calling up earlier essays (about 250 of these now).

Here we offer the remaining pictures from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Here are 2 views of some colorful plants.

Some activities for the guests.

 

beach party

 

There were at least a couple of swimming pools at this resort.  We include a few shots of these.

Another view of the same pool.  Note the shadows on the surface of the water.  When the surface is disturbed, the shadows will quiver and undulate creating an interesting visual effect.  When the sun is out, the same will happen to any reflected images on the water’s surface.

This next picture shows us 2 things.  The ocean is to the west.  When the west is to one’s right, one is looking south.  The sun’s position in the sky is very slightly north of this beach, but only at this time of year.  This location is 2 or 3 degrees south of the Tropic of Cancer.  (The sun’s position will be directly over this line on the summer solstice in a few days time.  Then the sun will slowly begin to retreat away from it.  Or, we ought really say that the earth will slowly begin to tilt back to the north.)

The second thing of note is we see a happy tourist enjoying her vacation with no thoughts of all the work back at the office.
