Sunday Football

Sundays are a day for the locals.  During the week the beach can be desolate at times, but sundays it is full.  Mexican families bring their umbrellas, chairs, coolers, food, friends and family - it is a day to relax and enjoy their beautiful surroundings.  It is a day to be spent with your family.  It is also a day you will see many games of pick up football on the beach.  Since the boys were young they have always enjoyed this activity when visiting this little town.  It is a time when it does not matter where you are from, how old you are or what language you speak.  The game of football is understood world wide at all ages.

That Season

adjusting to lazy mornings - being ok with that
letting go of self imposed demands
devouring a book in 2 days
face the day through the eyes of a child
endless bowls of fruit
summer is in full swing
happy summer solstice

Knitting With A View

The click of metal needles
Soft cotton yarn blue like the sea
Well on its way to be a sun dress for little Miss Ella
A view that leads to lost in thought
A moment to enjoy the surroundings
The bird on the shower
The palapa and the wonderful shade it provides
Tropical plants
Coconuts almost ready to be eaten
