Family Vacation

Monday, 6 September 2010

We're together in paradise. Today we took a side trip to Mismaloya and checked out where The Night of the Iguana was filmed in 1964 starring Richard Burton, Ava Gardner and Deborah Kerr. We actually sat in the restaurant on the site where part of the movie was shot. Here's the trailer:



Kingsley and I are very happy to see each other and have been celebrating our reunion. He hasn't seen mom, dad and Dannen since the wedding and we are all having a lovely time together.


The villa my mother rented for all of us is right on the Pacific Ocean and we have a view of Los Arcos, two large boulders in the sea which long ago broke from the main land. We look out over the landmark from our infinity pool which is constructed to appear to simply be melting into the sea. Here's a picture of Dannen enjoying the "amenities."


The boys are planning to play golf tomorrow and I'd like to read more of my book, Scribbling the Cat: Travels  with an African Soldier by Alexandra Fuller.
