The Happy Van to La Manzanilla

Beach time followed by drinks and then a great dinner; that's the recipe for another spectacular day in La Manzanilla.

Kids in the Happy Van!
We loaded into the Happy Van and Barry drove us up over the hill to the beachside town where we spent the afternoon and evening. Of course, we played dice, cribbage and watched the beach walkers. It was another laid back day.

When evening came we walked down and had drinks at Magnolias. On the way, we ran into our friends from Coeur d'Alene who had just arrived in La Manzanilla. Steve and Dana Wetzel own a beachside casa and they were stopping over before they went to the Yucatan for a week or so. We hope to be able to get together while they are in the area.

Burros can be a bit stubborn.
After drinks, we walked to Martin's where we met Larry and Maggie and ate dinner while watching the sun set. The sky was blood red as the sun sank into the clouds out on the horizon. I wish I had taken my camera up to dinner with us.

After dinner, Barry drove us back, in the dark, and we called it a night. Don't know if we can take too many of these adventures. Just kidding!
Yes, that's my happy face!
