BEACH + BEER+ TEQUILA= TATTOO

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFriends invited the Senor and I to spend the day with them at Ixtapa Island today, so back to the beach we went. Charlie and Christine picked up the 4 of us and we drove to Playa Linda were we caught the water taxi to the island. We always go to Paraisio Esconido where we get great food and service from Juan and his lovely wife.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It was a beautiful day, a huge, beautiful yacht pulled in I swam out to it and if they OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAhad been friendly I was going to ask for a tour, but they weren’t friendly. What a disappointment!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALunch was excellent, the company was also. The Senor and I got matching tattoo’s in an attempt OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAto scandalize our children. They weren’t shocked, the replies I got were ” I hope it’s real” and “You are having too much fun”, haven’t heard from the rest yet.

One of the people we met there was from Lake Tahuya, WA. Small world, you have to be from our home area to have ever even heard of Lake Tahuya. But there on the beach of Island Ixtapa in Mexico is a beautiful 12th man flag. GO HAWKS!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As the afternoon moved on many more boats arrived and moored out, one looked like the little brother to the big yacht, OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAobviously the same manufacturer. It was such a relaxing afternoon, but Mexico seems to have that effect on the Senor and I. Here we don’t get that guilty feeling for just laying back and enjoying ourselves our friends and this beautiful country. 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

  1. another Zihua lover! we have spent a lot of time there; our friends have a beautiful place in Almacen, arriba Porto Mio; absolutely beautiful view. We haven’t been down in a couple years, so it’s fun to see a fellow Vallejoan has discovered a place we love. great people there, hope to be down there next winter

  2. Hi Kathleeen, it’s your new acquaintance Linda. Just wanted to say how much I enjoy reading your blog. I told you I have a friend in Toronto that (at my suggestion) now reads it everyday and when I tell her things about Zihuat, she says “oh yes, I recognize those names”, since I tell her I went to The Flophouse and you put in such better wording and it’s so enjoyable to read. My friend asked me if those tatoos were real. I knew that Doyle’s were, but wasn’t sure if yours was. Take care for now,
