All Good Things Must Come To An End

Our time in Zihuatanejo is at an end.  We have packed up our apartment, all 5 storage boxes, contracted with our Mexican friend JC to haul them down stairs and put them in Javier’s storage loft. We cleaned out the cupboards and closets and delivered to our friend IMG_0222Tess, who lives here year round, a couple of boxes for her use and other odds and ends that she can find folks that could use them.   We enjoyed a last box of wine and some salmon tapas with her and had a nice visit.  I also looked at an apartment just down stairs from her, not for next year but possibly the future.

The suitcases are packed, we are ready to head for home.  Most of our goodbyes are said. I know we need to go, but I am sad. There is a part of me that just isn’t ready to go.  We have signed on for 4 months next year, we will arrive mid November and leave mid March so I do have that to look forward to. I have that to look forward to.

At home I have other things to look forward to. Tax preparation, finish filing all our medical claims that travel insurance won’t pay for until our home insurance pays first. And as I still am employed part time, my delivery route begins a couple of weeks after we get home .And we have problems with our rental house to deal with.  The upside is looking forward to seeing our cat which my oldest son has lovingly taken care of during our absence, watching our talented grandson play high school baseball, and seeing our other grandchildren, reuniting with good friends at home, and planting a garden that may produce if the Washington sun is willing. A few RV trips and what ever life throws at us.

I want to thank everyone who has made comments on the blog, and all the lovely people who have introduce themselves to me as blog readers.  This means a lot to me. I so love Mexico and my time here and want to share it all with everyone both in Mexico and those thinking of Mexico. And has given me the opportunity of meeting so many interesting people. Signing off until November 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 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

  1. Thank you for sharing your precious time in Mexico with me. I really enjoy your posts and it helps get me through a long winter in Wisconsin. We are here in Zihuatanejo until Sunday, and know the sadness of saying goodbye to this magical place that so many call a second home. We hope to spend time as you do here in a few years, once my husband retires. We try to check out living options each time we come, as we will be on a tight budget. (I wish I could pick your brain for advice) I am familiar with the place you stay at, but wondered if you would share the apt. area that you looked at near your friend? We are trying to gather as much info as we can, about future places, prices, etc…… Again thank you again for sharing your experience and love of Zihua and safe travels home!

  2. Always enjoy your blog. Thanks for sharing another year. Safe travels and look forward to reading of your adventures again next year.
