Met some new friends on the beach today- the candy wheelbarrow man, the pie lady and this funny black dog with good manners who sat down at the edge of our chairs and waited patiently while Dan fed him one chip at a time!Read more "New Friends"
We dove at Los Arcos today and I didn’t even drown. Visibility was low, but about 60 feet down our guide Jadi showed us rays, pufferfish, zebra eels and a tiny seahorse! As soon as I saw that horrible fluorescent banana rental wetsuit, I knew it would be all mine! So, everyone else is looking […]Read more "Scuba"
I don’t know exactly what’s happening here, but just watching it made me want to throw up.Read more "Mexican Maypole"
Nearly pros at taking the bus now… Ok we barely managed to make it back until a local took pity on us and stepped in to help.

Surf crashing hard and a tricky undertow, floating and ducking. Salt in my eyes and sand in my hair and laughing through it anyway. Skewers of grilled shrimp and fish, fresh slices of jicama cucumber and melon with salt and chile. Crowds of vendors. Too many to mention. Except the pastry man- strawberry filled with […]Read more "The Beach"
