I’m Back, Well I Never Left, Just Busy

Dinner with Mike, John and Gloria at Casa Bahia

I’ve not posted in several weeks as I have been having too much fun keeping company with a charming gentleman from Canada.  He had to return to Canada for knee surgery yesterday.  Now I am back to having free time to explore Zihuatanejo on my own and sharing it with you.

I had a brief episode of extremely low blood pressure and found it necessary to go to the Clinica Maciel one afternoon.  I was impressed with the the doctors, and the level of care.  I would never hesitate to go there again if I felt the need for medical treatment.

Escollera, with it’s infinity swimming pool has become a favorite spot.  I also have spent

quite a bit of time at La Madera beach, easy walk to get to, no water taxi’s or buses to contend with.

Sailfest has come and gone again this year I worked the T-shirt sales desk and enjoyed an afternoon on the Catamaran Viva, a true luxury cat. With all the rest of the sailboats we sailed to Ixtapa but

anchored.  Last year only a couple of us swam to shore, this year half the boat opted to swim in rather than use the launch that Paradisio Escondido sent out to transport folks to shore.  All part of the adventure! Also had a lovely evening  doing the sunset cruise on the Picante with friends.

Almost every evening there is a place for dancing, most of it caters to the “grey panther” group that is in the majority here.  But to watch folks dance, it’s with the same energy they always had.  We did have the best music, and it is still alive and well  in Zihuatanejo.

A group of us started a book club,  it fizzled out but not before introducing me to a couple of excellent reads.  Cutting Stone and the Tattooist of Auschwitz.  I highly recommend both, not quick beach reads, but real meaty stories and the Tattooist is a true story of the will to survive.

Still fighting to find and move pictures to where I want them.  I don’t know why it is so difficult.  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 love to travel to new places, getting ready to do that as a solo traveler. For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and have joined a couple of hiking groups. I'm a reader and love my kindle. I still work some, I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 20 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. The Senior is no longer with me, his choice, and I am OK with that.
