LTC and I celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary last week by going to the LeBlanc Resort in Cancun, Mexico. We had a fantastic time, even though hubby got pretty sick at the beginning of the week. (It also rained those two days too.)
To start off our fantastic experience, we were met at the airport by a chauffeur, who produced a Lily for me and offered us drinks for our drive to the resort. He pre-checked us in to our hotel during the drive and had a Strawberry Daiquiri waiting for me and a Coconut Milk (LeBlanc's speciality) for hubby when we arrived at the hotel.
After checking into our room and getting settled, we went down to the International Restaurant to eat lunch, since we hadn't had anything to eat since 4 a.m. The International Restaurant cooks up anything on the grill and offers a wide variety of food, from deli to fruit to buffet and dessert. (Oh, the desserts were to die for, folks!)
Here's the view looking straight out from our room. You can see the lower half of Cancun farther down the shoreline. Very picturesque! Out the window, to the left, is all ocean view.
And to the right, the Lagoon, where we saw an Alligator about 9 feet long! (I have pictures and will post them next week!)
LeBlanc is a fabulous resort for couples only, usually couples celebrating a wedding, anniversary, birthday or some such event. There were couples of all types there and I even got to chat with a really nice woman from Pennsylvania. (We discussed the resort and the man being rescued from a potentially dangerous undertow past the sand bar!)
Alligators? Undertow? Water rescue? Yes and more! At one time, we were in the elevator with the General Manager who offered to get us anything we needed. (We decided not to mention Montezuma. Pirate!)
Oh, and have I mentioned the cabana boys and the happy smiles as wonderful servers delivered your heart's desire... Ahem... Strawberry Daiquiris filled with rum, please. ;) (Got to shout out to my newest buds, Ana, Sara, and Laura. Also, our butler/concierge Alex and Luis. And I couldn't forget Alan "Alan Jackson". Yes, he did say it just like that too. And then there were Jesus and Jesus, Armando, Angil, and Jose, so gracious to fulfill our every need.)
Did I mention there were chocolate covered strawberries involved? And yes, the Happy 30th Anniversary sign is made of chocolate and tasted oh, so good!
I'll leave your mouth watering. (Pirate!)
More tales to come next week. Same time. Same blog.
Do you have any Anniversary or celebration memories to share?
