Sad, But Putting On A Brave Face for Christmas

Zihuatanejo seems a little sad this year, with it’s beautiful waterfront all torn up, but is certainly trying to put on a brave face as Christmas approaches. The waterfront walkway that were always crowded with locals and tourists every evening are empty. Laughter, chatter and music is not heard coming from the waterfront restaurants as they are difficult to get to through the on going construction. I’m finding it a bit lonely as so many of my friends have decided to sit this one out and not many gathering places to meet new friends. I’m sure 2021 will have a whole different look to it.

The city’s decorations are starting to spring up here and there and lots of lights are being hung trying to give a Zihuatanejo a festive atmosphere.

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like , but I plan on doing more. After working full time at Mount Rainier National Park during the summer of 22 I have decided to retire completely and forever. Prior to that I was semi retired as a Wedding Officiant I officiated at about 20 weddings a season, and with my small delivery service I handled the distribution of a local high-quality Home and Garden magazine . Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency. I now plan to travel to new places and exciting places, getting ready to do that as a solo as the Senior is no longer with me, his choice, and I am OK with that. For hobbies I'm a reader and love my kindle. And I enjoy writing.

  1. Hello, I am currently in Zihuat and looking for a charity that is collecting toys for children in financially challenged families. We have donated before at Embarc but they do not have a program this year. I am only here a few more days. Thank you


    1. Elizabeth Brady would be the only person I could direct you to as she is heavily involved in helping those financially challenged. You should be able to contact her through face book. I don’t have an e mail address for her.
