Another Lazy Day

My morning walk took me in a different direction this morning as I had no scraps for my chickens.  I headed away from the bay about 4-5 blocks and came across this park dedicated to heroes with this fantastic mural and then on another street they were continuing the over the sidewalk coverings.  these covered sidewalks are really appreciated in the heat of the day and I’m sure they are equally great in the rainy season.  But it fascinates me how the tiles are just set there with only gravity holding them in place.  A little later in the day, when we went to find a shoe shop to add holes to the Senor’s belt the work men were placing the tiles.  No roof top delivery here, every thing is manual.  My next site was one so common and daily here in Zihuatanejo done so religiously is the daily washing and sweeping of the store front.  Every shop keeper takes a small bowl of water and splashes it around the sidewalk tiles to keep the dust down while sweeping every thing clean.  Every day every shop!

It was laundry day and new to our apartment building this year is roof top

Mexican manual clothes dryer

laundry area.  Of course the machine is all in Spanish but it wasn’t too difficult to figure it out and of course the mexican dryer was a cinch…all manusl.  Well my pictures came out larger than planned, but it is easier to leave them than try to correct.  Plan of the day is snorkeling at Ixtapa Island, 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
