If you have been a reader of this blog for much time, you know that one of the many highlights of my life is leaving the mountains of Mexico each January and February for the coast of Mexico to enjoy
the warmth, the water and all the other good things that beach life provides, like good seafood. This year was no exception.
there with him.......He was ruler of the roost.
The sunsets were not spectacular as they were not over the water. But the softness of the sky was still a pleasure to see.
No, I did not go on the whale watching boat. Although friends did and saw about ten whales while they were out there. After they described how you had to get in the boat from the water, etc., I decided that with a cane, I probably should wait til another year.
To make up for not going on the whale watching trip though, a group of us went to the mangroves about an hour and a half north near San Blas. There we saw many, many crocodiles along with egrets, great blue herons, among others. My photos of the camouflaged crocs did not show well.
in the mangroves we stopped for lunch at a little place and had absolutely delicious food. We were
all amazed that in the middle of nowhere they could produce such great lunches.
We drove back to Guayabitos after that and unfortunately had to head home to SMA in a day or so
The bus ride home was 10 1/2 hours! Luckily there is a brand new toll road that totally bypasses
Guadalajara! Now I know I can drive to my usual beach spot and avoid going through a city of over
eight million people. It was the nicest, straightest toll road that I have seen in Mexico!
When we rolled into SMA on Thursday night, the temperature was forty degrees lower then where we had been at the beach. Wow! It was a shock to the system. Luckily, it has warmed up and in the daytime is getting up in the low 70's but still is about 33F at night.. Hopefully only about four more
weeks and we'll be in our Spring. Hopefully.
Otherwise, I'll have to get into the car and drive back to the beach.........ha. Any excuse works for me.
