Images: A Beach Walk in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico

Though I tend to be better at unplugging and stepping away from technology than other people, even I need to take a vacation sometimes. This past December, my husband and I took a short four-day trip down to Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico, where we checked into a Dreams resort and spent our mornings sleeping in and our days relaxing by the pool, sipping fruity drinks. Phones and laptops were not invited.

Every morning after breakfast, we took a long walk on the beach. For a couple hours, we’d wade along the edge of the water, dragging our toes through the sand and watching the runners pass us by. We stopped to watch birds and surfers, and we chatted about everything from the books we were reading and what to eat for dinner to plans for Christmas morning. Occasionally I stopped to snap a picture, but mainly I just enjoyed being in the moment.

Here are a few of the photos I captured on our leisurely strolls down the beach (and one from our balcony in the evening).

    sounds like a wonderful way to unplug for a few days…I think we’d all be a little sharper if we did this more from time to time

      I definitely agree. I think we’d all be a lot happier.
