Back in Zihuatanejo, this time to stay

I have been here almost three weeks. Fairly well organized after dragging 5 suitcases of all my worldly belongings here. I’ve been very busy culling things I am doubled up on, and those rarely to never used items. It’s not quite as easy to cull here as I have to haul them off to a donation location/person on foot vs loading the car and a quick drive to ST Vinnies but equally satisfying. I find the first week or two I’m here I nap a lot. I think it is the adjustment to the weather and time change. Or maybe just relief that I am finally settled in my “forever home”.

Oldest daughter April and I shopping in Sheridan Wyoming

Before coming to Zihuatanejo I was able to visit my daughter and grandchildren in Wyoming, my sister who is terminally ill in California and my friend in West Vancouver, who probably won’t be returning to Zihuatanejo again. Bittersweet visits, but good visits. I was able to spend lots of time with my sons before I leaving Port Orchard, WA behind after 42 years.

I really did enjoy my Summer working on Mount Rainier. I advise anyone who is a all interested in living and working in any National or State Park to go for it. While living and working in the park you have the opportunity explore all corners of the park, meet wonderful people from all over the world.

One of my street cats

Last year I fed 3 street cats on a daily basis, upon my return each one of them has paid me a visit, one with a kitten in tow. They all look healthy and have obviously found another place to dine, I don’t plan to resume feeding them as I’m really looking to find a cat of my own a strictly indoor cat.

Still wondering why the community pool is closed It’s not easy to swim laps in the ocean If anyone knows when it will reopen please let me know.

I’m so happy to be in Zihuatanejo in this lovely warm friendly place, I will miss waking up to my view of Mt Rainier every morning, I’m sure there will be times when I will miss my view of the lovely lake I lived on in Port Orchard. My view from my balcony is a fairly busy street, but it an interesting view non the less. I am just so happy to now call Zihuatanejo my home. I will continue to blog as the mood strikes me, no set schedule. Signing off KO

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. I look forward to reading about adapting to full time living there. I’ve followed your posts since the beginning.
    I retire in 3-1/2 years and am seriously considering moving full time. We’re just not sure yet about leaving everything behind.
    Do you regret not having done it sooner, or is the way to go your way?

  3. So glad to hear this! I enquired of a mutual friend, (you may be able to guess) and they (she) had no information. I thought I had heard about your Washington property. I did attempt an email, and it bounced. So glad to read this post, and that you are safely… Home!


  4. So happy to hear you’ve arrived and settled in Zihua! I was beginning to miss your postings! I enjoy reading your blog… with such compassionate & joyful observations of the people and places around you. My husband and I will be in Zihua soon, to escape our Manitoba winter and enjoy the beautiful people & places we love.


  5. I am glad you are back in your happy place. You are living my dream life. Enjoy yourself! I look forward to reading your blogs each year. It helps get me through the winter.


  6. I’m glad you’ve arrived and now you’re settled in your forever home. I enjoy reading your blog. I haven’t been to Zihua in 2 years. I enjoyed visiting there for 40 years.
