Jan 5, 2014 - First Saturday of 2014

A day at the beach, then playoff football. What could be better? 23.5 pound watermelon for 20 pesos, ($1.82 Canadian). Did you see that comeback? I'm starting to believe in Luck!!! Sports name of the year, football division: Michigan State tight end Jake Butt.

Jan 2, 2014 - January 2

Woke up this morning and the sun was shining, not a cloud in the sky. Saw a mother whale and her baby less than half a mile off shore. First time we saw whales that close. Walking past a group of people. Heard one guy say to another, "In a place like this you see lots of Mexicans". The sign said tacos pastor. Asked the lady what 'pastor' means. She said, "pork". We've had them twice now and they're good. Looked up pastor in the translator. It means 'shepherd'. Pigs don't need shepherds, do they? I think pork is the only English word she knows.

Jan 1, 2014 - New Year's Day, 2014

Okay, it's been raining for the best part of five days now. It can quit any time. The crowds in town are just crazy. I think this is the busiest we've seen it since we started coming down here. Went out for New Year's Eve dinner with Robert and Bonnie. It was raining pretty hard so, instead of going down to see the fireworks, we came home and watched the ball drop while sipping a glass of wine. Hey, the sun's out. Happy New Year everybody.

Dec 29, 2013 - Last Sunday in 2013

Been raining for 2 days. Gonna' rain again today and for the next two days. If I was here on a 1 week vacation, I'd be unhappy. As it is, who cares? We have 3 more months. Might clear up for New Years eve. Forgot to mention. PV City Hall gave us an early Christmas present on the 23rd. Bus fares went from 6.5 pesos to 7.5 pesos. That's, like, 68 cents Canadian, outrageous. Robert and Bonnie got here on Friday. 2 for 1 ribs Monday.

Dec 27, 2013 - Dec 27

Yesterday was cool so we did a little bit of grocery shopping. Local market, then Walmart. Rained most of the day today but cleared up a bit for the "Southside Shuffle". Even with the rain, the malecon and beach were as crowded as we've seen them this year. If there are any spelling errors in the picture captions, it's not my fault, honest. I fixed them.

Dec 23, 2013 - Christmas Eve Eve

Weather got a bit cooler today. Fairly cloudy and breezy in the AM. Cleared up in the PM. Sad news today. Roy and Carol won't be coming down this year. Our Mexico experience won't be the same without them. Saw the Posada tonight. Would have liked to watch the kids break the piƱatas but didn't feel like waiting through a church service.

Dec 22, 2013 - Dec 22

Yesterday; 5:00 A.M. Woke up to what sounded like hail. Turned out to be very large raindrops. 10:000 A.M. The street is like a river. Some people are having a hard time crossing. 3:00 P.M. Sun shining. Temp = 30C, Humidity = 90+. Today; Cooler but still warm. Went for looooong walk.

Dec 19, 2013 - Another Thursday

I'm seriously considering writing a letter to the Mirror complaining about the restaurants across the street from the Malecon. It's bad enough that their front men, or shills, or whatever you call them give you their pitch when you pass the restaurant. Now they're coming onto the Malecon to accost people. They're getting almost as annoying as the time share salesmen used to be. Went to see A Chorus Line at the theatre down the street. The venue us a little small for that type of production,(the orchestra was a little loud), but thoroughly...

Dec 14, 2013 - In 10 days, it will be Christmas Eve

Farmers Market this AM. Got some strawberries and met a young fellow who is going to be working in a shop that is in the process of opening across the street from our apartment. Went to Walmart, then on to Pittillal, (a town on the east side of PV), looking for soccer balls. The girl in the Yoga Studio next door is collecting toys for kids with HIV. We found some balls in the Sorianna store next to Pittillal. She should be happy. All the time we were in Pittillal and the Sorianna store you could have counted the number of white people on...

Dec 13, 2013 - Southside Shuffle tonight

Another beach day. Temperature was a little cooler. Its been 90+ everyday since we got here. Today was probably only 80 to 85 with a breeze. First Southside Shuffle tonight. Great music, lots of good snacks and wine. First day of the Posadas but we didn't see any.

Dec 12, 2013 - Second Thursday

Yesterday we finally made it to the beach. Beautiful. I think I got a bit of sunburn on my shoulder. Oh well, I'll live. A friend said I'm so white all the beach vendors will flock to me. He didn't tell Nell she's white. Today is the last day of the processions so we walked down the Malecon and followed the procession route to the church again. The girl at the head of the procession is the Virgin of Guadalupe and the boy, (made up as a man),is supposed to be Juan Diego. Juan Diego saw a vision of the virgin on top of a hill outside Mexico...
