our next stop was another bar a block or two away & the drinks were all paid for. :drool:

DSCN7225.JPG
some more of the local talent.

there were some traditions that had to be observed.

DSCN7303.JPG
i couldnt help but admire the cocos that surrounded me.

DSCN7334.JPG
after the dj quit because it was so late the real adventurous types ended up in the pool.
i didnt wanna get the camera wet. :rolleyes:

DSCN7340.JPG
the next day we were understandably late to get motivated,but eventually we decided
to go to the westins fancy-and/or-schmancy resto for dinner.
of course i had to explore the grounds to see what palms they were hiding.

Great thread Paul!

I like the "stair backstop" design for when you get going too fast down the stairs you have something to bump into instead of careening off the clif.

Paul,

Kind of strange to see the Agave's planted at the bar. Could be a little dangerous. I enjoyed the tour.
