The resort we were staying at in early February has beautifully maintained grounds, full of many different types of flowers and palm trees. Here are some of the flowers and trees that were on the pathways to the pools or beach. I'm not sure if these are natural to the environment.
These salmon flowers were all over the place. They grew on spikes about 12-24 inches high, and looked like they spread pretty easily in the flower beds.
Do you see the large pods hanging from the right side of this palm tree?
Okay, I usually hate, hate, hate photos of me, but here's a photo of FHFB (always handsome) on our last day at one of the private pools with hammocks and all kinds of creature comforts (I'm the one on the right). We were ready to catch the transport to the airport. Two of our beautiful friends were on either side of us but I don't have their permission to put them in my blog so I cropped them out.
(Hmmmm, afterthought, did I crop them out because they are so gorgeous??)
To tell you the truth, I'm usually pretty ready to go home by this point, and that's after most every vacation. We love getting away and visiting different countries - but the place we love best is our home. That may sound a little corny, but I can't imagine what it's like not to have a place to come home to.
It's always a great feeling walking into our house after a long flight.
