I have found THE swimming 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
, 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.
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
