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 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.
