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. 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. 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.
On 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. My 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
One thought on “SUNSET AT THE CATALINA”
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.
