Last night we had a rip roaring thunder an lightening storm.   Beautiful but only  lasted about an hour , but the lightening was spectacular and only a brief flicker of a power failure. This morning I woke to a  almost  daylight sky with a full moon shinning in thru our patio door,  and clear skies.  But what to my wondering eyes should appear over the bay but a whole string of lights  that had never been there before.  Thankfully my camera

has a good zoom, I can’t hold the  camera still enough to get a good picture on super zoom, but good enough to see that it was a large cruise ship.  I knew no cruise ships had scheduled stops in Zihuatanejo this year, so I suspect they were seeing safe harbor from the storm.  By one that afternoon they were gone.

Also yesterday a large yacht came into the bay.  I wonder now if they had warnings about the weather and decided to “slum it overnight” in our bay. Yachts like that aren’t the average visitor here.

I keep finding traces of Christmas here and there. No one is in a hurry to take down the decorations.  On my morning quest to get my newspaper I discovered this large cactus still decorated. But I didn’t find the paper. At 8:30 I was told come back at 1-00.  I went back  2:30 and I was told manana.  Now I have learned that manana does not necessarily mean tomorrow, it just simply means not today.

As I write this it is just a little after midnight I’m sitting on the balcony listening to music coming from about 3 different bars. The temperature is in the high 70’s right now and a little humid.  There is a possibility of more thunder storms tomorrow, should be interesting. The music so far it is pleasant as they are not real loud. One of them will play until 6 am, and sometimes. 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
