Hola a Todos!!
Greetings from Puerto Rico. Yes, I am writing this from a faraway island (not really that far). Lynn and I are staying the Wyndham which is connected to one of the Margaritaville resorts. As in all the Jimmy resorts, the grounds are beautiful, the drinks are plentiful and lots of pools and gorgeous beach. The weather has been stupendous and we’ve been doing a lot.
Our first full day here we decided to take a little ride up into the rain forest after breakfast just to do some sightseeing. Then your Captain came up with the great idea to walk down to the falls in the park that EVERYBODY said you needed to see. It was easy walking down to the falls, which were beautiful, but not thinking ahead (and yes, as we were told by several hikers, flip flops are inappropriate footwear for hiking), we had to hike up what we just hiked down, UGH! Lynn referred it to the ‘death march’, but we made it! Two days later we did it right and did it by four wheelers.
We also snorkeled the reefs off Culebra Island, just east of Puerto Rico. Unfortunately, not the best snorkeling we’ve see, but still lots of fish and coral. We did get an added surprise when we were heading back to Puerto Rico. We saw a humpback whale breach the water, which was the highlight of the day. It was unexpected, so we could not get a picture, but I don’t think it would have done it justice. To see something that massive come up out of the water like that is breathtaking.
Looking forward to a great
20th Anniversary year for PHIAP. Our first event is going to be a
Corn Hole Tournament at Range End Golf Course in Dillsburg. This just happens to coincide with Dennis playing that evening. Coincidence... I think not.Look for more information shortly.
We also have several other event plans in the works including the
3rd Annual Jakie Invitational at Rich Valley Golf Course on August 20th.
Any ideas that you have to celebrate our anniversary, please let me know. As always, with any events, WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! This is a good way to get involved in the club by being on a committee for one of these events, or just volunteering at the event. It doesn’t take a whole lot of time and I would love to see some new faces out this year. The only way to improve the club is to help the club.
Last, but not least,
One Particular Plocking is coming in May. The past two years we have had a great representation there and with
Tropical Soul and
Girlz Rule back on the list, it we be great if we could have even more of our PHIAP Phlock there this year. And yes, we will try to put together the Bob Weiner Hotel Room Buffet again! Details are in this edition of the Tequila Times.
Well, back to the sun, beach and ocean!
