Beach Days Are the Best

There is nothing like a day at the beach with good friends, sunshine, swimming and cool 26231495_1227564964047168_6684048461664235721_ndrinks just can’t be beat.  A table with a white table cloth was set up in the water for us to enjoy our drinks with our feet in the water. You actually do stay very cool even in the sunshine that way.

There is nothing quite as tasty as a beach margarita and with a banana boat in the background.

But to add to the excitement we had to take a ride on that banana boat.  Five of the six of us ladies decided we had never done this and the time was right.  So 10 folks got on the banana boat and the boat driver fastened the rope to his ankle and then swam out to the  boat that would be pulling the banana while towing 10 of us on the banana. Quite a strong swimmer.  He then climbed in the boat attached the tow from  banana to the tow boat  and we were on our way up and moving, well almost.  The tow rope broke reminding Vickie that this was her second water mishap as their water taxi died mid channel and had to transfer to another boat then and there.  But no problem the tow rope was retied and away we went. Got a fast, bumpy ride all around the bay and no one fell off. We were very proud that we all hung on.

I was very excited to try out my full face snorkel mask with my go pro attached only to discover the disc was full.  Oh well maybe Monday at Isla Ixtapa I can photograph the fish. Still it was a great day.  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 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
