Day 2, Starting to settle in

As we are going to be here 6 weeks this year we are taking it slow and easy which is great.  We have no need to rush around.  We did our big grocery shopping yesterday morning, we are forever amazed at how you get almost everything here, frequently the same brands.  We brought a few things with us, mostly the sugar-free products I use.  The one thing we didn’t bring with us and should have as we knew from before it cannot be found here is dill pickle relish.  That’s what we like in our tuna fish.

The morning shopping trip absolutely exhausted us so lunch and a brief siesta and we headed out to a near equivalent of a US $ store to pick up some house hold items for our apartment to make life more comfortable. thing like it only comes with 1 waste basket. On our way to the dollar store ran in into a couple we met last year and stopped and had a drink with them at the “Flophouse Bar” in their new location.  My first strawberry collada, I just may become a frufru drink aficionado. As we headed out to dinner we ran into our downstairs neighbors whom we had visited with both here and at their time share at Pacifica in Ixtapa last year.  It’s really comfortable not only to know our way around town, but to actually know people here, American, Canadian and Mexican. Dined at La Hija del Capitan, not my favorite, but Doyle likes it.  The only fish on their menu is shrimp, it’s ok but not great.  but it was a great day if not our most exciting.  The big plan for today is  head to the Mercado to get our fruits and veggies, something we do every couple of days, there I visit my cheese man and my egg man also.  Signing off KO

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like , but I plan on doing more. After working full time at Mount Rainier National Park during the summer of 22 I have decided to retire completely and forever. Prior to that I was semi retired as a Wedding Officiant I officiated at about 20 weddings a season, and with my small delivery service I handled the distribution of a local high-quality Home and Garden magazine . Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency. I now plan to travel to new places and exciting places, getting ready to do that as a solo as the Senior is no longer with me, his choice, and I am OK with that. For hobbies I'm a reader and love my kindle. And I enjoy writing.
