Well hello again after the beach trip..the Internet was very slow so here I am going to try to fill you in on the trip which was relaxing and wonderful...
It was a good drive down here it took seven hours which included three stops for the dogs.....after getting past the big industrial city of Ceylia the views change to lovely mountains and great Lakes!!!
We found the Airbnb easily enough and our room is on the first floor with a small kitchen and it is very nice.
...a view to the back is pretty
And we are only a short one block walk away to the beach..which is where we headed for the dogs to get their first glimpse.....
We walked along this bay and to be by the ocean again was special for me!!
The village is very laid back with very few tourists and no traffic almost like going back thirty years in time....
All the restaurants are dog friendly and we went out for dinner which was just OK!!
Friday morning I had the dogs on the beach for their morning walk by 7.30am and already it was getting warm....
Gracie made a nice breakfast and around 11 am we drove down to a lovely beach where we stayed for a couple of hours, reading, swimming and walking the dogs!!!
Explored the village checking out different places and then at 5pm we went here..
To participate in the turtle release program..whilst waiting there was entertainment!!!
Gracie getting the babies ready..
And then the walk to the ocean..
Happy to report both of Gracie’s made it safely and swam away...
We then went to the number one rated restaurant in the village and had a really lovely inexpensive meal!!
Although it is hot the room is cooled by two big fans or the ocean breezes out on the patio!!
A lovely day!!
Saturday morning I was picked up at the hostel by the company where I had booked to go on a kayak trip to the local lagoon...
Great fun for me to be back in a kayak and some amazing birds!!!
Then it was time to meet a local legend, the iguana whisperer....we got off the kayaks and he took us up to his camp and got a big bucket of cut up papaya and started banging the bucket and calling out and soon enough they came ....
Never quite seen anything like this before and of course I just had to try...
The lagoon was very peaceful only another couple and the guide Omar was extremely knowledgeable..a good outing!!
Gracie had stayed behind and she took the dogs to the beach....
We relaxed in the afternoon and then I took the dogs on a long beach walk before we went out to dinner.....the restaurants are not busy and we dined right by the ocean a good cheap fish dinner!!
So now Sunday our last day...and a great one.
I asked Gracie if she wanted to see another little part of Mexico and we drove about thirty minutes to the big city of Zihuatanejo..we found the beach where I had stayed in Ramona many years ago called Playa de Ropa...we started to walk on the beach but we both realized it was not our scene..too many tourists and we were stopped saying no dogs allowed.......it was a pretty bay though.
We then went a little further south another twenty minutes to the little magical beach town of BARRA de Potosi!!!
We loved this place..the lagoon comes right down into the ocean and you can float from the lagoon into the ocean....wonderful.
The dogs both had there first swim...Einstein could not wait to get out!!!
We took a really long beach walk..this was the hottest day and the ocean was cool to the feel!!
Then had a snack at one of the ocean side restaurants before coming back home.
If was not enough Einstein and I did our long beach walk again in the afternoon before we relaxed and then back to the favourite restaurant we went to the other night and another perfect meal.
The only sad thing about the whole trip is that I lost so badly at cards yet again and now owe Gracie three dinners...law of averages say I should win once in a while but I guess Albert Einstein was indeed wrong!!
Monday and time to head home....all packed up and another good drive home just under seven hours....
Well it was a great time and the main reason was that Gracie could have her dogs at the beach and the place we stayed was so perfect for that....
Now back to our lives in beautiful SMA!!!!
