2 6 11 Superbowl Sunday in Zihua

Good food, good drinks best way to spend a day at the beach

The big screens are appearing everywhere were they weren’t before.  Small bars, large restaurants, everywhere.  The senor has scoped out his favorite bar where they will have the game on in english with full commercials.  Most of the bars have it in mexican with mexican commercials and the only english is when the ref turns his microphone on for the penalties.  I will avoid the noisy bars  as I’m not a football fan. My first choice was Casa Arcadia on the beach, I brought my kindle and ordered a drink and the next restaurant over turned up the volume on their big screen and blasted away my peace and quiet so I headed off to my favorite place, Agave, where I had vino blanco, cream of avocado soup, peace and quiet and a nice piano player in the background.  Went back to my apartment put a movie in and retired early.  Just a pleasant Sunday for me.  The senor partied quite late celebrating the Packers win as he one 1,000 pesos on the first quarter.

The view from the new Time sharre/club we visited

2 7 11 This morning we did what we refer to as our “timeshare whore’ routine.  They offer us gifts to come see their resort, they try  to sell you time share or this one refered to themselves as a club membership.  We go for the free food and gifts. Our Canadian friends, Dwight and Lynn thought it would be nice for us to do this so we could get an all day food and beverage and pool pass to Pacifica in Ixtapa with them.  It was a pretty soft sell, very little pressure, the facilities were gorgeous, but tacked high on a hill sort of above Las Gatas Beach.  I would feel stranded, really nowhere to walk to, steep hills and trails.  I just don’t do steep with my knees any more.  Nice buffet breakfast, and not an unpleasant way to spend a morning and now on Wednesday we will hob nob with all the people who are paying more money for their one week stay, that we are for a whole month. Money aside we really do like being in El Centro Zihuatanejo, it’s where the action is.  Yes on weekends it’s a little noisy at night, but not enough to disturb us, and we are still capable of doing a little disturbing of our own. We are eating in tonight, fish taco’s.  Signing off KO

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like as I'm semi retired. I prefer that phrase to working part time. I would travel to new places, my husband Doyle, not as adventurous as I is more comfortable with the tried and true. Thus we have fallen into a routine (not a rut) of going to Zihuatanejo for 3 months January and February, March. Pendleton Oregon for the Round Up. Plus numerous short trips. We are "RVers". For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and read my new kindle. I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 40 weddings a year, and also operate a small delivery service. Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency, In 2016 My husband began chemo for Chronic lymphoma Leukemia, while doing well this has changed some of our travel habits. Relaxing in Mexico suits him well, for that I am thankful. KO
