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 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
