SATURDAY NIGHT STREET DANCE AND SUNDAY MORNING SIDEWALKS

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The young musicians were back last night in front of the art gallery, and the crowd began to form. Soon folks come forward one by one and to drop a tip in the kitty.  We have this wonderful birds eye view from our third floor balcony and as the crowd gets larger the band really draws the audience in by their talent,energy and large repertoire of great 60’s music, At first folks just sway to the beat of the music and it’s only the little kids who just can’t resist dancing.

But soon a few dancing couples get out there and then the entire street has erupted into dancing and singing to the music and begging for more each time the band said it was quitting time. A totally mixed crowd of tourist, snowbirds, and local mexican families.  What a wonderful impromptu street dance, a truly wonderful Zihuatanejo evening.

On a sunday morning sidewalk, things are quite different.

The only real activity is at the pier where the tourist fishing boats are embarking, on the beach the commercial fishing fleet is in and are busy selling their catch.

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
