My hubby and I recently had (yet another) fun afternoon together adventuring around our current town of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, Nayarit. The Reds were at school and the parents went out to play!
With the recent change in temperature and lowering of the heat and humidity index, adventuring outside around noon was far more feasible and enjoyable than it had been in the previous very hot summer months.
Toes in the sand and eyes on the horizon, we were greeted by this view, steps away from our front door:
Heading north along the beach towards town, there are no shortage of eye-candy accommodations to contemplate the day away at:
Making our way up to the marina, we passed by an area where the local fishermen hang and work their nets in between the trunks of the palm trees, under the shade, hoping for a breeze. Apparently, they were on break when we passed by.
At the end of the jetty we spotted the empty stalls and overhead tarps that host the high season’s Sunday farmer’s market—a must see if you are in the area between the months of November and April.
Venturing past the docks, we continued on north towards La Manzanilla beach. I am so happy to see La Cruz taking proactive action towards environmental consciousness and look forward to more and more individuals and towns joining in this global call to care for this one planet that we all share.
Venturing past La Manzanilla Beach we off-roaded onto the tidepools rocks, my big strong fireman assisting me along the way. Such a gentleman he is.
Apparently fresh oysters were in high demand as we saw some real-time harvesting around the point!
Soon it would be time to pick our Reds up from school so we began our return home but not without stopping first into a couple of the beachside restaurants to peruse their menus for future outings.
Thirst was upon us so we stopped to get a delicious, cold coco!
The walk home through town was fun, stopping to take pictures of various parts and enjoying getting to know our new digs on foot.
Cutting back down to the beach to arrive back home, we again saw the Pacific Blue backdropped up against this gorgeous and vibrant bougainvillea bush which are plentiful around the jungle here:
I love outings like these, where you just set out and see where the adventure takes you.
Here’s to many, many more….
Hope you have enjoyed a little peek into “a typical day” in the lives of Los O’Gradys in Mexico.
