THE MANY SHADES OF ZIHUATANEJO

The Senior is TV addicted, and believes we shown own all the latest gadgets advertised.  Admittedly some are very functional but many are not.  He also like catalogs and when he saw the full face snorkel mask he thought I should have one.  Finally we saw a sale price for one so I bought it.  I’ve used it about 3 or 4

times with varying results.  The first time was probable the best, just a tiny trickle of water at the temple near the end of my swim. Now I have since discovered that I can mount my go pro camera directly on it for under water pictures and have done so the last two times I have used it, but I now have a leak. One big enough where you have to empty it out. Need to do more experimenting, but possibly the weight of the camera on the mask causes it.  I would really like to get some under water fish pictures.

 

Our tomatoes are flourishing, we have about 10,

we just hope they ripen before we have to return home. The attractive weed that we thought might be a coleus. Isn’t! It is still a mystery, it looks like it is a climber and now has developed spines on the stem.  If it behaves it can share our planter box, at least for now?  Any ideas what it might be?

Everything in Zihuatanejo seems so colorful.These Roseated Spoonbill birds are some of my favorites.  They can always be seen at the Refugio at Playa Linda, but I have seen them at the canal on the way to Playa Madera too. This beautiful, colorful candy cart can be founds rolling all over town. It’s as beautiful as a painting.

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
