Return from Pabooba


We're back!

We spent the last 5 days here in Pabooba. I am badly sunburned but am closely approaching the itchy-peeling phase. Poor George is practically vibrating with anticipation because he's a peeling-lover. He's like a "Night of the Living Dead" cannibal that I have to fend off with a garden tool.

I wish this photo could do this place justice. Opulent is a word that comes to mind. Everything about this vacation was perfect, except that there were a few too many work colleagues hanging around, and I've had better food in my life.

But having no responsibility other than to sit in a pool or on the beach and be served cocktails?

I don't think life gets any better. I'm glad we went despite my sour grapes.

Possibly more photos to follow.

Wow, what a beautiful place. I have a new go-to image when I need to drift off to some tropical fantasy now.

Great. Yeah, whatever.

I'm still mad at you.

Take me with you next time! I'm sun starved and freezing to death up here in Minnesota.

Sounds like a grand time, except for the peeling and George hovering over you waiting like that.

It's a shame to go to a fancy place like that and the food be not so good. But I'm glad you and George had a great time.

Who doesn't love peeling somebody else's burn? Sounds like absolute heaven.

It's better if you can peel sheets off at the time. I hate it when it just flakes all the time like huge dandruff.

I'm jealous.

I've been using SPF 55 all week, so no peeling for me. No tan actually, which sucks, but I'll probably be happy about the lack of skin cancer later.

I'm glad you got over your snit and went. Who needs food when you have cocktails?

Looks beautiful. I'm very jealous!

Thats it, I'm starting a Vacation fund!

Does that make Poor Geo a peeler?

i am so glad you guys went despite you not wanting to go initially. It looks like a great place. I have been wanting a beach vacation - where all i have to do is lay in the sun and vedge for ever. Our vacations seem to be always somewhere were we have to meet people or do stuff half the time we don't even get to sleep in

Hah, what GT said...but ewww gross peeling skin is gruesome and revolting.

But glad you had a great time.

Now that is the funniest thing I've read this week.

I am so glad you went, everyone needs a vacation. Do you know that I haven't had one in over 10 years?! The shame. I really need one. How long had it been since you vacationed?
