Happy New Year & 15 days to Zihua

Didn’t get my sunset picture as we stopped at an odd little tavern near Pac Beach called the Aloha.  As it turned out 4 of the 8 couples that were in there live within 4 miles of our house and the owner of the bar is a friend of one of our friends.  Small world! I’m going to try for the picture tonight.

The party was good as usual, sat with the saame people we did last year.  Band was good, but I miss spending New Years with good friends.

Walked the beach again this morning it was cold, but not frozen sand like yesterday when I couldn’t dig out a sand dollar.  It was the only whole one I found and I couldn’t pry it loose.  Had breakfast at the Seagate,well more like brunch place was very busy.  Tested out the sling box today and it worked.  Doyle should be very happy in Zihuatanejo with American TV. 15 days to go, but who is counting.

It is the very last day of 2010, and 16 days to Zihuatanejo

It has been a good year, my knee problem is so much better that I can really look forward to 2011.

It’s early morning here at Pacific Beach, not light enough to go out for my walk on the beach and it is very cold here.  Sun is expected for the whole weekendand of course freezing tempatures.  The book I’m reading ( Nobody dies in Mexico) isn’t too great, I can’t get very interested in the characters. But since I’m halfway through with it I think I will continue with it. 

 The sunset last night was fantastic, I got a picture of it but the foreground isn’t too good so I’m going to try to get a better shot tonight and then I will post it.

  Plans for today?  Very basic, walk on the beach, poke around in the one interesting shop in town, try to keep warm, take a nap, read my kindle book, and get ready for the party tonight. Also dream of the warm beach in Zihuatanejo, begining the count down. Signing off KO

Less than 1 month

This is my very first post.  Just kind of trying it out, because in less than one month I will be in Zihuatanejo Mexico.  I’ve downloaded 4 books to my Kindle, trying to hold off reading them until we go. I’m still looking for a couple of more titles to download. I’m starting to make lists of what we need to bring.  I all ready have a small storage box of items that we set aside from last years trip. Our sling box is up and running properly so my husband can keep up with his news shows and won”t have to watch the smurfs speaking spanish. Our preflight reservations at the airport hotel have been made.In short it shouldn’t take much for us to pack our suitcases and go.  One problem remains is trying to  find a new substitute for my delivery route. If I get desparate I can fall back on the old substitute, but I don’t want to.  He knows the route backwards and forwards, but there are allways issues and he won’t check in on a daily basis. Still a lot of home things to take care of, and we also have our annual New Years weekend  trip to Pacific Beach to pack and get readyfor.  More about pac Beach later
