Did you miss me????

Hello Gang!

Just got back from a bit of a road trip.

Went north and did a little dining , a little shopping and celebrated Shannon's birthday

The new cuota is now open between Morelia to Salamanca, getting rid of a major bottle neck on any trips north.

Mountain Light

Heading out of Saltillo in the early morning heading towards Monterey, I was struck by the incredible light and sky against the mountains.

We enjoyed our trip, but now it is nice to be home.

Diego, our kitty usually likes to sleep in the bed with us, but I guess while we were gone, he checked out some different places for his R&R.

He seems to like the marble sink in the master bathroom.
Also red like the living room!

No! you can shave later, I'm comfortable.

Needless to say if you have been watching the weight loss ticker, it took a bit of a beating when I weighed in yesterday, and I don't expect it to improve until I finish the girl guide cookies we picked up in Texas.
Hey, you have to support the girl guides, right!

Back from the Beach!

Just got back from the beach at Ixtapa/Zhiuhua

Spend some time on the beach, being a tourist.
Shrimp stuffed avocados and cold beer at Patys on La Ropa!
Watching the sunset with a glass of wine in Ixtapa!
Needless to say, I didnt lose any weight while I was there.

I don't think I could take the heat and humidity, or all the tourist if I lived here all year round.
But it's sure nice to visit!

From Patzcuaro it is only about 3 to 3.5 hours drive to the beach, depending on how you drive.
I understand, until just a few years ago, it was an 8 hour drive!
The new toll road is in great shape, the only bottleneck is HWY200 along the coast, that you take from the end of the toll to Ixtapa.
Total cost for the tolls: 205 pesos.

But please, if you are driving, fill you tank before you go.
The first time we went we were sweating the last few miles till the gas station!
