So, it’s been a while since I posted, but I really have an explanation for that! (Don’t I always?)
In this case, it’s because I don’t have access to my photos of church interiors. I store my photos on Picasa.com, but for whatever reason, I haven’t been able to access them for the past few days and I can’t even log into the site. Oh, well, what the hell, as one of my favorite writers, Joseph Heller, wrote in his fabulous novel “Catch-22.”
Let me tell you what IS going on in my life these days. I’M GOING TO THE BEACH!!!
Now you can probably tell from that last sentence that I’m pretty excited about it. You’d think that being on kind of a permanent vacation, as I am in retirement, I wouldn’t be that excited about taking another vacation. But, you know what, I still am!
Except, these days it’s not so much taking a vacation that excites me as going somewhere new. And, trust me, this place is totally new to me!
I’ve spent some time in Manzanillo and some time in Mazatlan and a very little time in La Manzanilla and Melaque and Barra de Navidad, but I’ve never spent any time in the area of Tecoman or Cuyutlan, Colima, Mexico. But I’m about to!
But in a couple of weeks, my friend Jojo and I are going to Cuyutlan for three nights/four days…..as the travel agents would put it.
A few days ago, a local fellow who runs a B&B in Ajijic, posted on one of our local webboards here around Lake Chapala that he had a house, right on the ocean, for rent in Cuyutlan, at a really good price. And since I still owed my friend Jonnie a birthday present, I decided to check it out. And this is what was offered:
You probably can’t see it, but way over to the right of the photo above is a gate that opens out directly onto the beach, which opens out directly onto the Pacific Ocean! How cool is that!!!
And there’s a “real” bedroom, too, aside from the foldout couch:
And I didn’t even have to “dibs” the bed; Jonnie just conceded it to me! (That’s how you can tell who your real friends are!! They just do things like that!)
Anyhow, Jojo and I are going over to the coast to enjoy this place and at a great price! The weather here at Lake Chapala is lovely this time of the year and the weather on the coast is gonna be hot, but we are both totally up for it!
Eat your hearts out!
If you are interested in renting this place for yourself, contact me for more information as to how to contact the owners! And, yes, I will definitely be writing about our stay there!
