Mar 13, 2011 - Tsunami, Colima, Volcano, (WOW)

Hi all. We are safe and sound. Turns out we were on Tsunami alert day before yesterday around 3.00pm. Nothing happened until about 4pm when a big swell came onto the beach at the Con ca De Mar beach bar. Some tables started to move and people were grabbing their drinks. All tables and food were pulled off the sand. The rest is about 8 feet above the beach, so pretty safe as they were just calling for a 6 foot swell. Melaque has tsunami alarm system and the water is monitored. Police were on the beach looking and keeping an eye on the...

The house is nice and I have a room on the ground floor with my own bathroom...

Feb 19, 2009 - To COLD to come home

Today we closed the LOOP and are back where we started in Mazatlan---it seems like the far NORTH, and is way cooler than we have been enjoying (it is only about 26 degrees)................oh heavens, how will we be able to stand Alberta. Anyway I will do a bit of back tracking, from the CAR INCIDENT. I read this article AFTER we had done the coastal highway---it says Mexico Hwy. 200 is a precipitously winding two lane road that passes through extremely mountainous terrain (here the mtns. reach all the way to the coast). In addition to the...
