Up at 8 and out of the house by 9! We 7 of us (Andrés, his sister, parents, cousin, Pedro, and I) piled in the car and headed on a 3-1/2 hour drive to Ixtapa. Andrés & his family have a time-share/vacation property there. I slept for a lot of the ride, which was mostly highway driving. We arrived around 1, to a city which was sunny and 33 degrees!

Arrived at their house, and there were two housekeepers inside preparing food for us. We had some sort of fish tacos, and then relaxed for a bit.

This is outside the house. I believe that we share the yard and pool with a few other houses or so.


Went on their family boat after I had a brief rest. Rode for about 20 or 30 minutes to a beach, and dropped our anchor. Swam in the warm water for about a half hour, and then I slept on the front of the boat in the sun on our way back. Went out for dinner in the evening, and had a calm night.

    Haha Donna…I was picturing a rather cramped car too. Couldn’t play the first video. It said something about aborting, but the second one portrays the beauty well, in a glimpse. Nice day.

    Car was packed, stacked, and all that! They have a case on the roof to store the bags and such. But with that full, I had two tennis rackets up against my left leg. Not a lot of room to move, but was comfortable.

    Hahaha. A “brief rest” & a nap on the boat after you slept all the way there!! It certainly is gorgeous & you are certainly living the life of Riley.
