The Pool, The beach and Birthdays

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.

Best cake ever

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!  Signing off KO87106730_10221538254714196_5834019868189392896_n.jpg

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.

  1. I’m really enjoying your daily posts especially since I can’t be there with you. I think it’s a great idea and change for your Birthday to go to the Spas Benefit. Missing you and stay active ny dear.
    Talk soon xoxo
