The senor and I took one of our certificates we won at the Sailfest Auction to the Catalina Hotel, now called the Catalina Beach Resort. Our plan was

The Sunset Bar Terrace

the sunset.  We arrived to early, about 5:30 so we went to the bar for a drink before ordering dinner.  That was a mistake, don’t order your drinks until happy hour 2×1 starts as the drinks are the most expensive we have had in Mexico.  But that was the only mistake of the evening. The Catalina is beautiful, both the dinning terrace and the Sunset Bar terrace   For dinner we shared a huachinango, red snapper the Senor had a tomato Salad and I had my favorite soup, Cream of Avacado, which is served cold.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA We had a bottle of white wine and following dinner we headed down to the bar terrace to enjoy the sunset with the bottle of wine. There we ran into two groups of friends who were also enjoying the sunset. This is a great place to enjoy the sunset during happy hour 6-8.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOn my morning walk I was hoping to photograph the sun rise, but by the time I got to the beach it was too late, so I opted for some of the beautiful flowers and plants that you see everywhere. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMy little net book is giving me fits.  It is simply not co operating, I’m regularly getting messages about “not responding due to long running scripts” and google keeps saying “something’s not right here “Yea I know something isn’t right because I can’t  get google to respond. today it wouldn’t let me caption some od the pictures or place them where I wanted. It will need an overhaul when I get home.  But I must admit I’m beginning to think tablet.  Signing off KO

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like , but I plan on doing more. After working full time at Mount Rainier National Park during the summer of 22 I have decided to retire completely and forever. Prior to that I was semi retired as a Wedding Officiant I officiated at about 20 weddings a season, and with my small delivery service I handled the distribution of a local high-quality Home and Garden magazine . Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency. I now plan to travel to new places and exciting places, getting ready to do that as a solo as the Senior is no longer with me, his choice, and I am OK with that. For hobbies I'm a reader and love my kindle. And I enjoy writing.


  1. Kathleen,like I said to you earlier this evening in front of casa marina, I really enjoy your posts so much. I was at the Catalina as you know, and you took all the words I was thinking and created a great story. Keep writing,. Even my friend in Toronto loves your stories. Make sure you check Coconuts out for the cheap happy hour. We were in Memos tonight and didn’t think those cards were still over there with their menu, but maybe they were tucked in behind. Hopefully they still have that happy hour(s) as it’s a great place to people watch and write stories…….. not that you need to find any……….they just evolve out of nowhere and you create them. Nice seeing you and Doyle.
    Linda and Jim, Centro and Toronto
