We traveled by boat to the small remote village of Chimo. How remote is it? It has no cell service.
Heading out. My sister's roommate, Karen, from college has joined us.
The water is calm and the breeze is refreshing
A hour and a half later Chimo comes into view.
We are staying in the two cabanas on the hill just above the boat's bow
Some egrets looking for lunch
Mr Toad's wild ride
Looking back at the harbor
The cabanas were wonderful
Just enjoying paradise
This beautiful vine shaded the deck
A visit from a few of the locals.
The cabanas are surrounded by a mango orchard
and of course we played a lot of Qwirkle
My sister with her granddaughter
You can see the lights of Vallarta in the distance
Bonfire on the beach
That is a sea lion extending it's flippers to catch some heat from the sun
From our perch on the hill we had seen many Humpback whales.
When leaving Chimo we was lucky enough to have one come close to the boat.
The whales are protected, it is ok if they approach your boat, but you cannot drive your boat up to them
Weather report to all my family and friends. 75degrees and sunny and no rain forecast.
My sister, Victor, and myself went on a shopping trip to Guadalajara. My sister was looking for some home decor items. Especially glass hearts and faux flowers created from corn stocks.
First stop the bedding store
Close, but no sale
Nice pedestrian only shopping area
Love the street art in Mexico
Not glass heart in sight, only these white ones
None here either
The search continues
We found the mother load
I love it, but a little large for Serenity.
The hot shop is right next door.
Back home with her treasures.
She got hearts in spades, but no mock flowers.
Hearts of all sizes and color
My sister wanted the heart to decorate the tree.
My photos do not due them justice. They just sparkle in the sunlight
