Winding Down

Our time in Mexico is growing short. A few days ago Daren and Marcy hopped on a bus and headed north to PV, where they are today, and will fly out soon. I took a couple photos while they were here and so I posted them below. We had such a great time with them while they were here. It's always sad to see friends move on. They sent us a SPOT message when they got to PV. We looked at it in Google Earth and were amazed just how big PV has gotten. We probably won't be visiting there anytime soon.

On Tuesday we went to Barra and took a boat taxi over to the beach restaurant Mary's. Jill and Barry have a friend down named Jay and we wanted him to experience that bit of Mexico. The food at the restaurant is always good. I had some bean and cheese tacos and for 30 pesos they gave me six. I was stuffed!

 Sitting in the shade at our table you can truly get a picture of the haves and have-nots. Yachts and huge sailboats moored about the lagoon, as their inhabitants come and go. Next to us a few local children swim and play while street vendors cruise back and forth hoping to make a sale.  It looks to me like the have-nots are happier than the haves. We are so glad we can do this each year and hope to be able to continue for many more.

Shopping in Barra.
Every conversation at this time of year includes talk of flying out of Melaque. Linda has started not sleeping well as she plans what needs to be completed before we leave. Clothing needs washing, kitchen supplies need packing, our luggage is a puzzle and we need to figure out a configuration that allows us to fly home with everything we want to transport home.  I am ready to go. I have loved the stay but it is time for us to get back to Idaho.  I'll probably post again before we leave so until then, take care!
