When I first get up and head out to the balcony to listen and watch the day unfold here all I see is a few fishing boats coming in, but this AM the bay at the end of my street was ablaze with lights. A cruise ship had anchored in the bay. I thinks it’s the only one that comes while we are here, tourism is way down with all the negative publicity Mexico gets and the shopkeepers and restaurants here are having a very tough time.
At the Mercado yesterday my limited spanish was so rusty that most of my shopping was done by pointing and asking “como se dice” (how do you say). Next time I will do a shopping list on the computer have the computer translate it to Spanish and I’m sure I will do better. I always have trouble with the money, I either try to underpay or overpay. But the shop keepers always help me out and never get grouchy.
Roof dogs are quite common here, sometimes it’s scary to se a dog running on top of a roof with no railing, I’m always afraid they will fall. Some times they are just pets and it’s the only outdoor space for them, but quite frequently they are guard dogs. But I thought this little fellow was really cute, he would throw his head back and howl like a coyote.
We are off to Ixtapa Island today to snorkel and swim, one of the restauranteurs has invited the 3 couples here in the building to his restaurant, he will be taking us in his boat. Really makes one feel special. Should be a fun day! can’t quite get my pictures where I want them, will have to work on this. Signing off KO
