We are just back

from spending five

wonderful days

celebrating

a 25th anniversary

at Playa Viva.

 

A group of 14 friends

and family joined us

for the celebration.

Lazy days were filled

with morning yoga,

quiet conversation,

napping in hammocks,

sharing great meals,

riding the gentle surf

and being pampered

by the gracious team

that is Playa Viva.

 

Guests were invited

to participate in meal

preparation in the open

kitchen.

And to learn a few

of the secrets from

the irrepressible,

never at a loss for words,

activities organizer extraordinaire

and Master Mixologist

Don Johnny.

 

More than a few of his

trademark cocktails

were poured for our guests

over these five halcyon days.

Actually a lot more

than a few drinks.

Our very special friend and

professional photographer,

Tom Seawell with an

impromptu stylist assist from

his wife Laura created

these beautiful images

of a few of Johnny’s concoctions.

Cheers!
