Happy Birthday Matthew
16 January 2011 | La Cruz - Banderas Bay
Matt turned 20 yesterday --- he is officially no longer a teenager !
We returned from Punta De Mita yesterday afternoon and took a slip in the La Cruz Marina . Last night we along with the Gang from Perfect Wave headed into town to a restaurant that had been recommended to Matt by some cruisers we met whilst at Punta De Mita.
It was a good recommendation , the owner was very pleased to have us and he and his staff made a big effort to ensure we enjoyed ourselves. The food was very very good as were the Margaritas. Matthews were made special for him , just the way he likes them - lots of Tequila ! Matt also sampled some pretty hot guacamole - the photo gallery show his face after the fact.
A birthday cake complete with "Happy Birthday Matteo" written on top was dessert and Happy Birthday in both Spanish and English was sung by the owner as he played the guitar.
The Perfect Wave guys gave Matt 3 very special authentic Cuban Cigars one of which we shared whilst the Mexican Coffees were being made. Kahlua , Tequila & coffee were expertly blended and set alight as it was poured into sugar rimmed glasses and then topped off with ice cream-they were good !
Then along with the bill ($250 for 7 of us ) some peppermints in novelty Viagra packaging complete with slogan - see photo gallery.
As we were leaving Matthew and Tommy from Perfect Wave got into a silly string war and covered each other in pink spray - again see photo gallery.
We then headed off to Philo`s bar for some fun which consisted of a few games of pool , lots of dancing and even more Margaritas .
Leanne & Matt joined the band for a few numbers , Leanne on the spoons and Matt on the Bongo drums it was a lot of fun . Come to think of it I recall Leanne booking herself a gig with the band playing the spoons at Punta De Mita for Monday night ! We all staggered back to the boat at about midnight.
Thats the way Matt celebrated turning 20 here in Mexico. I hope that it is a memory that he will have forever I know it will be for us.
