So last weekend we made a trip down to Mexico for a friends birthday. We stayed in a really great condo right on the beach that was located right in between Rosarito and Ensenada. The condo was amazing, this photo below is a shot of our living room area with a fantastic view of the ocean and a fire place .... and thank goodness for the fire place it was a bit chilly while we were down there.

All sorts of candy in wheelbarrows for sale everywhere!!
View into the harbor of Ensenada
Fresh fish tacos are a must while in Mexico
We stopped into a really awesome bar while in Ensenada and the boys who worked there told us about the Wine and Shells event that was going on right along the ocean on our way out of town and it just sounded to good to not stop by ... so we did. This is the path to heaven (above photo) ... and I say heaven simply because wine and seafood .... for amazing prices, what more could a girl ask for! Not to mention the great company of friends and the Hubby!!
Careful ... you may find this last picture a bit scarey ... and I am sorry if you do but this crab was just amazing!!
So our trip was a lot of fun. There has been so much bad press about Mexico not being safe and all sorts of kidnappings, and not that I don't believe it or anything but I did feel safe the whole time we were there. We went into Rosarito our first night in town and that was a little special ... I mean, when you go to a place called Papas and Beers what do you expect .... right?!?! We spent the next day in Ensenada and then the rest of our time in our next of the woods. The only thing we didn't get to was wine tasting in their wine country. You can check this lovely ladies blog out to see one of the reasons why we decided to give Mexico a go. She also has a great post about the wine country in Mexico. I am sure we will be making another trip in the near future!
