international travel


Special Delivery!
Today we traveled to Yelapa. It’s 45 minutes from Puerto Vallarta, on a water taxi from Los Muertos Pier in south Puerto Vallarta. Round-trip cost less than $25. We arrived at a nearly empty, pristine beach. The water was beautiful and cool. There was a restaurant or two nearby, where we had great lunches — if we wanted, they’d bring our drinks out to the chaises they provided for all-day use. It was fabulous.

A lady sells pie on the beach for 30 pesos. Agostina’s lovely and she makes good pie. We tried coconut, apple, chocolate, & pecan.
They bring you pie. On th beach. 30 pesos.

You can watch the taxis come in every hour or so. Everything is delivered by water taxi, even the beer. Then a guy wheelbarrows it up to his restaurant.

There are several beach dogs. I woke up from a nap to find this one had burrowed under my chaise, taking a break from the heat. He was a doll.

Someday, I will come back a spend a whole week here. It’s one of the most peaceful places I’ve ever visited.

Gone to Mexico, BRB

I meant to update all y’all before I left but here’s a brief note: I’ve been in Mexico all week with motomotoyama & the gang. It’s hot, sunny, and the tide from the Bay of Banderas rolls in about 50 yards from our hotel suite’s balcony. So that’s pretty sweet.

We’re perfecting our slacker ways, but if the mood strikes I’ll send some pictures thisaway.
