A Quick Update

In 2010, we moved back to the small town in Colorado that I never stopped missing while we lived in Mexico. Now I sometimes miss Mexico, but I wouldn't travel as freely as we did when we were there, camping out in remote areas and so forth.

Mexico today is in a period of change, and in many ways it is more dangerous now. That said, I have plenty of American friends who still live there very happily, just taking a few more precautions than they did in the past.

Just to say!


Visit Expedia…

Expedia is my favorite place to book airfare, and they handle hotels, car rentals, cruises, etc. I like the organization of the site for figuring out what flights I want. Click on the suitcase to take a look.

I was very pleased to win an award for this blog! Even better for you: click through for lists of all sorts of award-winning travel blogs.

July 13, 2008 – When we were in Sayulita recently, we stayed at Casa Carricitos overlooking the ocean… that link takes you to the page with rental information and pictures of the attractive interior of the house. We were so entranced with the out-of-doors that we never got around to taking pictures inside!

You can barely make out the house on the hillside, its flat roof showing. My sister-in-law Alexandra is enjoying the little-used beach just a short walk from the house.say-aonbeach

The 180-degree ocean view from the terrace was the focal point of our time there. Here, Alexandra is flanked by friends Leslie and Nancy.


Guess it’s pretty obvious that my husband Kelly and Alexandra are brother and sister!


Kelly kept his camera handy. Here, one of the countless land crabs is eating a flower. We loved the faces on the land crabs — you can see the two eyes — and since they would come into the house, we also appreciated that they tended to scurry away from us!sayulita-landcrabeatingflow

But his biggest coup in the nature photography vein was getting the second of these pictures, as the lizard only showed that colorful bit for a quick moment:



The sunset went on for hours:


Many thanks to the owners of Casa Carricitos, Adele and Michael, for the gift of our stay there… they are friends of Alexandra’s. We all had a wonderful, restorative time. And I didn’t think I needed a vacation!
