I had become lazy about getting to the pool on a regular basis. So yesterday I bought my monthly pass and have resumed swimming. I swim 3 days a week and on the other two week days I have Spanish lessons. The swimming is going great, the Spanish not so great. It is a bit of a struggle for me and I know I should study more and practice more. I’m finding composing sentences difficult, my vocabulary is fair but conjugating the proper verb in the proper tense just takes a lot of thought. They say this is good for the older mind as it keeps it active. If frustrated is active I’m doing just fine.
My friend Vicky had her birthday party last week, really a great party, great band, even a pinata. She had the most
delicious layered cake as each layer was a different flavor. Unfortunately she had to she had to enjoy it on crutches as she is recover from an earlier fall getting on a motor scooter and broke her leg. No one can accuse us oldsters of not being active or having fun in Zihuatanejo.
My birthday is next week, there is a big fund raiser concert that same evening for the local Humane Society that does a wonderful job rescuing street dogs and spaying and neutering. Friends convinced me that it would be a great way to celebrate my birthday as not only is there a concert, but also food, wine and raffles . So I bought a ticket.
A few days ago went with a group to Ixtapa Island snorkeling. The snorkeling was the best I’ve seen in several trips there. The water was clear, not too heavy of wave action and the fish would literally swarm all around you. While doing a quick stop to check out the croc’s in their sanctuary I noticed a turtle swimming up on the back of a crocodile and literally taking a ride on his back. Who knew they were friends!
