A Day in the Life...

A typical day starts with waking up to a beautiful sunrise over the Sea of Cortez. We can watch the sun coming up from the comfort of our bed as we leave the French doors to our bedroom open as well as the curtains on our patio doors fronting the condo.

On many days we have been fortunate enough to be entertained by a couple of whales spouting and breaching out in the bay. Other than whales, there's usually only a couple of small fishing boats, no big boats or cruise ships coming and going, just water as far as you can see with the sun's rays reflecting across. Yes, it's going to be another beautiful day.

After a leisurely cup of delicious Mexican coffee and cup of Red Rose tea on the deck and a light breakfast, we both do an exercise video to give us some stretching, cardio and toning exercises. I never thought Ian would do it with me I brought it from home. It's nice to have a partner, it's all I can do not to laugh as Ian's made up a few of his own special moves. A quick shower and it's time to head to the pool for a while.

After an hour or so at the pool we get dressed and head out somewhere for lunch, either by foot or by bus. Yesterday we found an amazing Sushi restaurant called Mi Sushi across from Walmart. The chef is Canadian. We used to live in the Vancouver area so we are no strangers to good sushi, but this was better than good, it was love on a plate, completely amazing. We couldn't believe we ate it all but it was so good we couldn't stop. Sushi in Mexico - never thought I'd do it, let alone find the best in my life.

After lunch, we head to a grocery store to pick up something for dinner and any other supplies we might need. It's a treat for us to shop day by day since at home we have to stock up on groceries during our weekly trip to town. Here we just buy whatever looks good or what we feel like eating that day other than back or potato chips since we are still on strike from those.

Then we head back to the condo, Ian carrying our supplies in his back pack. By time we make it back and up the steep hill to the complex we are sweating like pigs, so another quick swim is in order and visiting with any other complex tenants who happen to be around. Everyone is very friendly and almost all are from BC.

By then it's time for happy hour and cooking up some barbequed dinner of the day, then kick back and relax with some movies on Netflix. It's a tough life (sigh) but someone's got to do it!
