Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala

It is not the destination where you end up but the mishaps and memories you create along the way.

Antigua, Guatemala was for 200 years Spain’s Middle American capital, leaving behind elegant pastel-colored mansions, lovely churches, and baroque civic buildings which date back to the 1500’s. 

Again, the tours to Antigua were too far away, too long and we were too tired!  So we simply walked ashore to the lovely port shopping area.  John sat in the cool shade while I walked around perusing the shops.  Since Guatemala is known for its coffee and colorful textile weavings, I picked up one of each and John needed a new belt and found a beautifully stitched design on one. That was the peaceful, unhurried beautiful day we had in Guatemala.

Can’t forget my tugboat!!
