We took a day off!
After spending our Thanksgiving Day at a graduation, we took a day off Friday and went to Monterrico, a quiet little spot on the Pacific coast of Guatemala. (For those who didn't know, Guatemala actually has coast on both the Pacific and the Caribbean)

Main Street of Monterrico ends at the beach!

From our house, it is about 1 hour and 15 minutes to drive to the coast at San José, then almost another hour to drive along the coast to Monterrico.
My guess is that it was about 80 degrees there, in other words, pretty close to perfect!

Sandi & Maria head strait for the waves!

We explored around for awhile before we found a little place for lunch, then we walked the beach.

Almost had all the beaches to ourselves!

It was a wonderful day together just relaxing and doing pretty much nothing! The beaches were virtually deserted, it was almost like we had our own private beaches! Well, that's enough talk about that, now just enjoy a few pictures!

Several small beachfront hotels

Sandi wanted fresh fish for lunch, so that's what she got!

Maria had a blast in the waves!

Sun and surf

Volcanic sand beaches

Our beautiful Maria

Your day at the beach looks perfect :0) (Well, almost perfect... the fish looks a little too fresh for me!)

I'm glad you take some time to relax and recharge as a family.

God be with you,
