We have really been enjoying taking things slowly. Sort of routine: Get up make some coffee and sit out on the patio. Sometime after 8:00, amble over to the Rancho to have breakfast. They always have fresh fruit, fresh squeezed orange juice, eggs to order, black beans and rice (the national food) and then something different each day like coffee cake, French toast, muffins, etc. It’s a nice place to chat with the other people that are here.
Then we take a walk down the beach. The sand is easy to walk on—very firm - somewhat like Daytona Beach but not as white. The water is easy to walk in — warm with no undertow. The bigger waves are quite a distance out from the very gently sloping (almost flat) beach. We can watch the surfers catch a wave and sit on top of the world (hear the Beach Boys or Venture playing in the background?).
Then we have to decide whether to sit in the shade of the trees near the water where there’s always a nice breeze or sit at the pool under an umbrella. We’ve been skipping lunch after that nice breakfast and eating
Where we have breakfast and meet with the other guests and the owners. The refrig has goodies and drinks in case we run out.
an early dinner -- we either fix for ourselves or drive into town to one of many local restaurants - nothing gourmet so far but good eating anyway. There are a huge number of restaurants within a 15 minute drive. It’s an interesting drive—narrow streets with lots of people walking or biking so we have to take it slowly - no sidewalks so everyone walks down the middle of the street (note singular - there is only one).
I was sitting under a tree on the beach reading a book while Jim was back at the Villa doing some work when I noticed things falling from the tree and hitting me. They didn’t seem to be falling around me—just hitting me. It didn’t hurt and I had to look several times up in the tree but I finally spotted a monkey. HA! The little rascal wanted his privacy I guess…
As you can see from the pixs, the sunsets are beautiful! We took some from our beach and some from a restaurant (we needed 4-wheel drive to get up the hill to the place). Nice sunset though the famous “green flash” failed to appear.
Tomorrow, we are
A nice spot to spend the day
off on an adventure with the other people here at the B&B. The owner has arranged for ATV’s and is guiding a tour - more later.
