Playa La Ropa to Guitarfest

20160304_114456I was surprised when the Senor suggested going to La Ropa instead of our regular Friday at Playa Las Gatas then it dawned on me, no walking. We could catch a cab at the end of our street and it would take us directly to El Marlin. At Las Gatas we would need to walk a couple of blocks to the water taxi and then the length of the beach. He is really having a tough time getting around.

La Ropa was wonderful, the surf was low, the sun was high, we snacked on jicama, bobbed in the water.  I don’t care for the swimming at La Ropa, too many boats and skidoos

zipping round. It’s always fun to watch the Picante come in and see the folks flying on .the spinnaker. And nice to see the Senor out and enjoying himself.

Sand Artist

I enjoy getting out and around town, nice people to meet and  visit with and interesting things to see. Zocolo there is art in many forms, at the artist park there is always something of interest.

And if you choose to take a break a little charmer will sell you her wares, with mama always close in the background.

Last night was Guitarfest at the Casa de Cultura, a fancying sounding name for what at first glance looks like a large out door lot with some sail shaped coverings overhead. But it truly is a spectacular music venue.

Lipbone Redding

Of the 3 performers I watched Lipbone Redding was my favorite with a New Orleans vibe. I have a ticket again for Thursday night and I’m looking forward to it. My taste in music run more to the country/bluegrass than anything classical so I was fairly selective as to which nights I purchased tickets for but I will say there was something for everyone’s personal taste. A really great week-long event.

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 travel to new places, my husband Doyle, not as adventurous as I is more comfortable with the tried and true. Thus we have fallen into a routine (not a rut) of going to Zihuatanejo for 3 months January and February, March. Pendleton Oregon for the Round Up. Plus numerous short trips. We are "RVers". For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and read my new kindle. I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 40 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, In 2016 My husband began chemo for Chronic lymphoma Leukemia, while doing well this has changed some of our travel habits. Relaxing in Mexico suits him well, for that I am thankful. KO
