Puerto Vallarta

On our way home, we had to fly from Puerto Vallarta so we spent a few days with Al and Cathy. Last time we were there we weren’t too impressed as it’s a big city and we prefer a smaller place. After this visit, we changed our minds as we enjoyed it a lot more this […]


Tomorrow we have to go home. (Sob!) We’ve had such a great time down here we don’t want to leave. 

It will be different next year when we come for six months. We’ll be residents, not tourists. The obvious thing to think is that we are having a good time now because we are on holiday, […]

Tito’s Bar

Tito’s bar is in the west end of town. We were invited out again by Bill and Connie. I’m beginning to like these people, they get us into all sort of fun places. We had been to Tito’s bar before but not in the evening. 

We arrived at about 2:30 in anticipation of the band starting […]


We went to a polo match yesterday. One more ‘L’ and it would have been a chicken match. Some new found friends, Bill and Connie, go there regularly and invited us along. 

We thought the match started at 2:30 so we got there about 3:00. The guy on the gate wouldn’t let us in as, […]

Bits and Bobs

Here are a few bits and bobs we picked up while here.

First of all, older folks down here sure know how to party. We went to the restaurant the other night and there was a band from the Yukon playing. They were about our age and were awesome. People were up dancing and having […]


Tianguis is the local market where Rosalie spends most of our money. It stretches several blocks along the main street between Melaque and Obregon. The stalls line the road and the whole thing is shaded by tarps stretched side to side. As it crosses several streets you have to watch for vehicles going by. Even the […]

Senior side of things.

This is one of the cover pages on my site. I’m sure a lot of people haven’t read it so here it is as a blog; besides which, I’m running out of things to blog about.

Like eating Chinese food in a Mexican restaurant

Most people think that once you reach retirement age, life […]

Feliz Ano

‘Feliz Ano’ is how the Mexicans great us and each other at New Years. We have been saying ‘Prospero Ano Nuevo’. Both work so we don’t feel too foolish. I knew Feliz Ano was correct when I heard the kids saying it.

Denny and Margo arrived from Canada two days ago so we reserved a […]

Christmas Eve

 As a follow up to the Christmas blog we had some interesting Christmas Eve and after experiences.

We went for a walk up town on Christmas Eve and it was unusually quiet. There was hardly anyone about and the roads were empty. We didn’t even see a tuc tuc or taxi. It was just like […]


For some reason, time seems to mean nothing while we are down here. I’m the type of person who has lived by the clock. Lately, though, I’ve stopped wearing a watch. It’s probably because the time is always readily available on my phone.

Although I have also noticed lately that when I get my phone out […]
