Back once again, after an absence!

March Break brought not only a needed rest and much relaxation, but a longer break from blogging. I did not really appreciate how tired I have been and how much I needed to just take each day at a much slower pace, with few commitments.
But after a couple of weeks away, i am ready and eager to get back to creating again and blogging. I have missed both.
We had a wonderful week away in Neuvo Vallarta. We rested by the pools, read, drank margaritas and swam a bit. A lovely way to rest and restore.
I had such fun snapping shots of the animals, birds and flowers, not to mention the water! Here are my favourite shots:
Shadow Shot Sunday
I am returning to this fun photo challenge after a few weeks. I took lots of photos in Mexico - and of course many were of shadows! With the bright sun and the green foliage, shadows were abundant.

Your iguana photo reminds me of my very first visit to Mexico, to Puerto Vallarta, where the beasts basked in the trees! Lovely shot!

You found some lovely shadows indeed. As well as beautiful flowers and animals. Plus you got a little rest and relaxation, which we all need from time to time.
Happy Sunday and thanks for sharing your photos!!
