Majahuitas Cove

A detail from a large painting of my memory of Majahuitas Cove, near Puerto Vallarta, where we'd enjoyed a day of snorkeling.

Tequila Factory

These photos were taken during Christmas week in Pto. Vallarta, on the adventure tour. Keith is coming out of a rappel down a waterfall in the photo to the left. Their tour truck stopped at a small tequila factory on its return to the Sapphire Princess. The owner made sure that they all enjoyed his tour, and took this photo of the delighted group. Though the grands had declined to buy adventure tees, they grinned as they wore their Tequila Factory tees.

Awesome Opportunity

Last evening's call from grandson, Wyn Delano, was electric. I heard the excitement in Wyn's 16 year old mellow voice as he told me that he'd just returned from UCLA. He was bursting with the news that he'd experienced the second and final evaluation of his vocal potential by Vladimir Chernov, who heads UCLA's Vocal Instruction department, and that Mr. Chernov had accepted him for instruction. What a heady moment for that high school junior! (Do look at Wyn's website listed in Links). As a good grandmother, I "googled" Mr. Chernov, and was duly impressed by this baritone's c.v. and his ongoing heavy performance schedule. What an awesome opportunity for wonderful Wyn. I'm dreaming of reserving 2 front row seats at Lincoln Ctr. for his debut.
