"M" is for "Me", "Mariachi Band" "Mexico" "Margaritaville" and "Melanie"

Bonjour from Campagne Maison

Melanie, Jacque, and J. Karen and a Mexican Mariachi Band

Three of my sisters, Jenny, Melanie, and J. Karen, and I went on a cruise to Mexico where we were serenated by a Mariachi Band at the port in Couzemel. We had to leave Jenny aboard the ship to see the doctor, due to a bad case of seasickness, so she is not in the above picture. She was a sport about the whole thing and did get better the next day.

One of the places we visited en route was Key West, FL where we enjoyed a break at Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville.

I wanted a picture to include the signage, so I had to climb up into the window to have it taken. I like to say that I was "high" but not on the Margaritas!

I am linking up with Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday. Please grab her button on my sidebar and go over to read about all the other "M"s in class today.

Happy "M" day, Ms. Matlock!

Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit. We love having company!

Au revoir,

Well, it looks like a good time was had by all. I know climbing in the window was not the most daring thing you did. Tropical places are nice.

What a fun trip that must have been. We went on a cruise to Mexico and spent the entire cruise running away from a hurricane. We never made it to Mexico. We learned that we don't get sea sick when most people do!

Hi Jacque,

M stands for "me-way behind".
What a fun post. It looks like you had so much fun. I love mariachi bands- they just make me want to dance.

big hugs.
