Feb 5, 2014 - Puerto Vallarta

We arrived in Puerto Vallarta this morning around 9 A.M. The first thing we saw was stunning hotels right on the beach. I would not mind spending a week in one of them. :-) We were able to walk right off the ship today, the buses were waiting for us to load for our tour. Puerto Vallarta used to be a sleepy town until the filming of the movie “Night of the Iguana”. It has now transformed into an international resort town. Director John Huston chose the village as the location for his film "Night of the Iguana," starring Richard Burton....

Feb 5, 2014 - More from Lo de Marcos

Thought it was time to share some more photos with you all. Our weather has been more idyllic since the humidity has slowly diminished. Although our new weather station, (Mike’s birthday present) shows it’s raining, with a temperature at 29c, humidity of 67 RH and pressure at 29.9 inHg., forecast, ‘rain’. Then looking outside, clear blue sky with not a cloud in site, go figure. The birds coming through or staying in this area are spectacular, lots of brilliant red and yellow ones, lots of different humming birds and of course the huge...

Our neighbor took his computer to be fixed day before yesterday. Whoever he found to fix it must have done a good job. This morning, from the apartment next door, we heard: "Goddamn stupid comupter".Whack, Whack, Whack. "Stupid f...in' computer". Whack, Whack, Whack. etc, etc, etc, for about 5 minutes. (poor computer). Do you think he might have anger issues? We should have checked the trash can. Maybe we could have acquired a slightly bent computer.

Jan 30, 2014 - Only 1 day left in January

Went up to La Penita today to have lunch with Don and Phyllis. Had a very nice visit. Would have been perfect if the bus wasn't so damn cold on the way up. Going to Nacho Daddy's for dinner with our neighbor tonight. Just back from Nacho Daddy's. Good dinner and music by the Zippers. Life is good.

The rodeo is here next weekend. We sat in on a TV interview of a couple of cowboys at the Mall. It really would have been interesting if we understood what they were saying. Anyway, here's a picture of a cowgirl and a video of a cowboy twirling his lariat. http://youtu.be/q9Qd-kPYnd0 Rain has started again. It's really coming down. Supposed to rain the next two days.

Regulators have been at it again. Made Steve's Sports Bar remove their sidewalk tables and shut down the three shops across the street from our apartment. Then, yesterday, they came back and took the tape off the doors so I guess the stores can open again. I think it was all about licensing. Another great day at the beach on Thursday. Saw the whales again. Not quite as close as before but still not too far out. Saw Bob and Muriel this morning. They were having breakfast at the Sea Monkey. Stopped and had coffee with them. Then tonight went...

Jan 14, 2014 - Birds

Yesterday on our walk we saw a flock of 40 to 50 parakeets. I've never seen that many parakeets outside a pet shop in my life. Stopped in at Nacho Daddy's for happy hour and reserved our seats for the Super Bowl. Go Seattle!!!! We're 87 steps from Nacho Daddy's. A couple of nights ago our neighbor (Apt #1) took a cab home. Keep expecting to hear Roy calling from across the street when him and Carol are walking down to the vegetable market. They should have arrived Sunday. Just doesn't seem the same without them.

Rained Friday night. This has been a different season. Way too much rain. I don't know if I can stand it. Oh wait. The temperature in the rain is 27 deg C. I think, just maybe, I can suffer through it. Had dinner with Robert and Bonnie and Henry and Wendy last night. Henry and Wendy both look great. Henry is just as funny as ever. A very enjoyable evening. Just got back from Ley's Supermarket. Nothing like a long walk to wake you up in the morning.

Jan 8, 2014 - 8 January 2014, Lo de Marcos, Mexico

We have been in Lo de Marcos now for well over a month and it has been busy, getting ready for the holiday season, not to mention golf, crib tournaments and lots of Xmas parties and of course a visit from Liz’s brother Dave and wife Chrissie. . It was great having Dave and Chrissie with us for two weeks, they stayed in a very nice beach house in the RV park next door to ours. Unfortunately the weather was poor, lots of rain for about half their stay – but as they said “it’s warm rain”. Mike took advantage of Chrissie’s plumbing skills and...

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.
