Tuesday in Troncones and more.

I have  found THE swimming pool

Olympic size pool

,  Zihuatanejo’s Alberca Olimpia  an olympic size, comfortable water temperature, clean and it opens at 7:00AM.  It took me 20-25 minutes to walk there this morning.  Paid my 20 pesos, I was almost alone in the pool , just one other person.  Swam for 30 minutes and caught the first bus back to El Centro. Next on my agenda was the first Sailfest Volunteer meeting. We love Sailfest and since I’m going to be here for 3 months I figure I can spare a few days for the cause.  I signed up to sell T-shirts. This should be interesting,  me making change in foreign currency!   I signed up for 2 shifts, I’m sure I’ll do more unless I screw up and they throw me out.  The Senor is concerned I’ll over commit. It’s nice that he is concerned!!  Back to the casa to pack for another over night to The Inn at Manzanilo Bay in Troncones for a dinner concert featuring Kim Marcoux

songstress with Alan Alto  guitarist. Alan is from our neck of the woods and we are loyal fans. It was a wonderful dinner show, we had a great time. Swam in the pool there, had great meals and this time we stayed in one of 2 upstairs rooms.  This room was as lovely as any hotel room we have ever had.  Completely private, a large outdoor sitting area and a nice size bedroom with a lovely bath. And no iguana this time.  The Senor prefers this to the ambiance of a tropical thatched roof  bungalow. I just don’t get it. El Senor is no romatico.   I went for a walk on the beach the next morning and not only did I see the largest house I’ve ever scene just next door

Rock people

, but since Mexican kids don’t have snow they have to resort to making rock men and rock families.

A little further down I noticed bicycle tracks in the sand and right beside the bicycle tracks were this other set.  Looks like someone was out exercising their bird!  We traveled to and from Troncones on the bus.  It’s an easy trip but an adventure none the less. and far more economical than a cab and easy enough to do.  We now travel like the locals.

These tracks made me think someone was exercising their bird?

A trip to the Commercial, drinks at the Flophouse with Dwight and Lynn and we are ready to fix some dinner and call it a day. I’ve been in computer hell the last couple of days , with a big computer a net book a tablet and a phone and all I’ve been able to do is totally confuse me.  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 love to travel to new places, getting ready to do that as a solo traveler. For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and have joined a couple of hiking groups. I'm a reader and love my kindle. I still work some, I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 20 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. The Senior is no longer with me, his choice, and I am OK with that.

  1. The city pool looks very nice. Glad you found an alternative to swimming at Madera. I haven’t been to Zih in several years, but I found the water at Madera a little too smelly for comfort back then.


  2. ko,they are hermit crabs that leave the [tire tracks].the bird was most likely a night heron looking for a meal.no need to reply,but do like youre blog,bettet than a lot of the other bickering enjoy,ed


  3. Looks beautiful. We have been reading your blog and really enjoying it. Thank you. I posted on the first day of your blog and then thought maybe you would not know being that far back… I am new to this blogging. We will be there 2/7-2/14/15. Last year was my first time there with a girlfriend and this year my Senor (George) is coming and this will be his first time. Last year, we only spent one afternoon in Zihua and hope to spend more time this year. I will say hi if I see you. Again, thank you and we have enjoyed your pictures and comments. We live in Colorado and it has been rather snowy and cold here.
