A foggy day in San Francisco, CA

It's turning fall here and I am beginning to think about returning to Mexico for the winter. I have enjoyed San Francisco so much this summer I thought I would never want to leave. The very first cold day and I want to leave NOW (lol) In some ways it was a mixed summer. I missed my class reunion (60yrs!!) because of my health. Also I was not up to joining Veronica in Europe. I feel good now and had a nice visit in Bend Oregon with my brother and his wife Dana. So life is good. I see my life changing and I am slipping into old age without any regret or unhappiness. to be continued.....

Just another great day!

I am here in Sayulita Mexico. It's unusual for me to be here at this time of the year. Usually I think it is too hot but this year I have hung around and I have enjoyed the heat sticking to me along with my clothes. I am using the outdoor jacuzzi (sans heat) to cool off. The house here is situated and built to take advantage of the ocean breezes so pretty nice.  Drove down to Oaxaca
with my friend Veronica and spent about 3 weeks there. It was a very exciting adventure and drive. Oaxaca is a very large city, but with a very exciting history and population. Of all the cities I have been in Mexico I think I like Oaxaca the best. It seems many of the crafts of Mexico come from the Oaxaca and surrounding areas. The weather is also very pleasant. Lots of afternoon rains and overcast days taking the edge off the heat. It is not humid so it can be very comfortable and a nice refuge from Puerto Vallarta and Sayulita in the summer. I am here in Sayulita to get the house ready for the summer rains. I will be living in Puerto Vallarta again when I return from the US next season. I will leave for the US probably in a couple of weeks. I enjoy Sayulita but prefer to live in Puerto Vallarta. More variety of things to do and eat!! The weather is so great today. Wonderful breeze blowing through the house. Never the less I look forward to getting back to San Francisco.

A typical day in Puerto Vallarta

Got up late this beautiful bright sunny morning. I spent all night watching a netfilx series House of Cards on my iphone. Some of these series on Netflix are addicting and I watch an entire season in a night. I have been here in Mexico since November but have traveled to the USA a couple times. I am pretty much torn between San Francisco and Puerto Vallarta, fortunately I don't have to choose I can enjoy them both. Soon it will be Semana Santa here in Mexico and the streets will be filled with festivities celebrating the The Last Days of Christ. It starts the March 25, and goes through Easter Sunday. I confine myself to mainly here in old town. I've seen all the Virgin Marys I can stand for this lifetime. They will be parading them every night down in the main street. One good thing is there will be lots of good food being sold on the plaza. Living here in Puerto Vallarta has proved to be more fun than Sayulita. I need now to find a decent place to live. My little condo here isn't cutting it. I want to see the ocean when I open my eyes in the morning. I need to go to L.A. in a few days to see my grandson. I always enjoy L.A. Right now I guess I will take a walk down the beach and get a
yogurt. All is well :-))
