Been a busy week beginning with the Spring Street Fair in Barra de Potosi, it is a fun and colorful annual event. It is full of local hand made items for sale, many made by
the village children. Lots of great homemade Mexican food and drink. This event helps to support their animal protective society which funds neutering of dogs and cats, help find homes for otherwise unwanted animals. I went with the plan of purchasing 4 kid designed and painted place mats and some flavored sea salts.
A couple of days later went back to Barra de Potosi to
kayak in the lagoon. Great place for kayaking, smooth water in the lagoon. We did a double, and it was fun. But I prefer a single, easier to paddle at your own rhythm.
I’ve been to Playa Linda many times, but just as a stopping of point to catch the water taxi to Ixtapa island. After visiting the crocodile sanctuary, our group settled in at a table at one of the many restaurants and watched the huge waves that day. No swimming for any of us. That evening I was on to a cocktail party for Sailfest volunteers at Punto Garrobo, a new upscale,
luxury establishment high on the hills overlooking a small inlet on the far side of the light house, sort of behind Playa Las Gatas. Lovely facilities, absolutely top notch, but not for me. Property is on a very steep hillside, lots of wide stairs but of course no railings. They “vanned” us down to the “Beach Club” which is exquisite, the road is very, very steep with a hairpin turn that takes two two three passes to complete the turn. It is walk-able for the young and healthy, but not so much for senior citizens and it is too steep for golf carts to pull.
The beach club infinity pool in-spite of it’s slightly irregular shape is long enough for lap swimming and is gorgeous as are the views. It was a very pleasant evening complete with a drinks and tapas.
My birthday last week was perfect. The concert was a fantastic, wonderful entertaining singer followed by a local mariachi band. Forgot to bring my phone so no pictures. Signing off KO
