Zocalo Festival and a Couple of Dining Options in Zihuatanejo

February 13, 2019 Every Sunday night in Zihuatanejo at La Cancha (the basketball court) ensues the Zocalo Festival and hundreds of adultos and niños come out as familias to enjoy entertainment, street food, socializing and to give one another support and encouragement. Truly a feast – for the senses!! Before the main event happens, the…

Sunday Switcheroo

February 10, 2019 We arose ahead of our sun and relished the coolness of predawn and the gradual transition out of twilight as we trekked up La Ropa Road to meet our Canadian friends, Marge and Ted. They arrived yesterday afternoon and we decided to spend a little time with them in a morning walk…

Of Pangas and Sailing Ships

February 9, 2019 Friday we took a little panga over to Playa Las Gatas – a field trip we take at least a couple of times while we are in Zihuatanejo.  Some folks get to LasGatas by climbing over the rocks that separate it from Playa la Ropa, yet most people just pay 40 pesos…

Book Report Break

February 8, 2019 Today I share with you a book report!!  Knowing my love of walking, this most enjoyable read was shared with me by a dear friend and I was able to check the publication out from my local library.  I love to read as much as I thrill to walk – instilled in…

Holy Pasole!

February 7, 2019 Man – it just keeps snowing back home (not the usual winter weather in Seattle environs) and each day here in our Mexican February home-away-from-home continues to dawn with the promise of golden sunshine, blue skies and almost sizzling temperatures in the high 80’s. And we like getting our walk on before…

Does “Walking With Purpose” Equate To Meaning?

February 6, 2016 It could have been middle of the night for all the blackness our overhead sky held this morning when Hubby arose to go fishing at 6:00 a.m. (or what we like to call, “0 dark-thirty”). If I don’t join him, I walk with him to the dock and eventually, when snack supplies…

Zihuatanejo Sailfest

February 5, 2019 “Vacation” manifests for me in many ways. I know some of you are probably thinking, “yeah, like you’re always on it!” Okay, that’s fair! What can I say – it’s a priority!! For the most part I like to stay physically and culturally active and a primary goal is to discover and…

How Does It Feel?!

February 4, 2019 Today is a National holiday In Mexico – Constitution Day. The 1917 Constitution was drafted in Santiago de Queretaro during the Mexican Revolution, approved by the Constitutional Congress on February 5, 1917, with Venustiano Carranza serving as the first president. We love our cozy, charming casa with character!! What a stupendous home…

Super Bowl Sunday Fiesta!

February 3, 2019 Today we bid a lingering adios to The Inn at Manzanillo Bay, our amigos and to Tranquilo Troncones. It’s on to Zihuanteno – what we have always considered a “sleepy little fishing village” yet in comparison – a happening place! In fact, we had to make a “reservation” to watch the Super…

Put Your Hands In The Air Like You Just Don’t Care!

February 2, 2019 Our mornings unfold slowly around here. There are always a couple of surfers that either come from our bungalows or have permission to access the wave action through our premises. By the time the cloak of darkness lifts and skies leave behind their twilight shades, said surfers have completed their morning runs…
