I was in desparate need of a manicure and decided to get a pedicure as well. The Senor usually enjoys a pedacure here also. After trying several spots last year we discovered “Kushi”, hopefully I’m spelling it correctly. The ambiance is wonderful, you feel pampered upon entering, soft music, lovely decore, soft seats and china bowls to soak in. As we both dipped our feet in warm water we were offered coffee, tea or VINO. Just guess what, I had
The Senor of course opted for “te negro” black tea but I on the other hand enjoyed a wonderful glass of wine. So now our feet have been sanded, trimmed, massaged and in my case polished. the senor headed back to the apartment while I had my manicure. I then phoned him to meet me for lunch, as it was Thursday, it was Pazole day a lovely hominy, brothy soup with condiments for me and a nacatamale for the Senor.
Now we must pack for an over night at the Inn at Manzanillo Bay. A truly unique lovely establishment in Troncones. We will stay there on Friday night as my “Sharkfest swim” is Saturday morning.
This is my 3rd” Sharkfest swim”. It is a 1.1 mile open ocean water swim from Majahua to Hacienda Eden. As a daily mile swimmer the challenge is not the distance, but keeping orientated.This much different than swimming laps in a pool. There are no black lines on the bottom of the ocean and I continually seem to want to swim out to sea rather than follow the coastline. There is also the challenges of getting past the rolling surf and into the open waters and the continual wave patterns. At this time of year the surf is mostly calm at other times this is a prime surfing beach area. Of course the main challenge is not coming in last. As I am usually the oldest swimmer at 72 years, I want to finish strong, not in last place.
So wish me luck as I swim with the fishes on Saturday. Signing off KO
