It has been a whirlwind past couple of months for us, wrapping up our twins’ 6th grade school year in San Miguel de Allende, packing up a house for our move back to the coast, a five-day trip to the States for my father’s celebration of life, and then back home to Mexico for an 11-hour car ride from Guanajuato to Nayarit with kids, dogs, tired parents and a boat full of our stuff hooked to the trailer behind our car.
We arrived to our little slice of paradise in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, exhausted but so happy to be back at the beach. We wasted no time at all getting our suits on and into the ocean right down in front of our new home! Standing on our beach in the state of Nayarit, we can look across the bay to Puerto Vallarta in the state of Jalisco! Talk about a view!
We began this grand Mexico adventure back in 2012 along this same coastline…coming back now in 2016 feels like reuniting with a long-lost dear friend. We will settle in and stay in this area, for now—Frank with his solar expeditions, our children with their paths, and me with my writing.
In the few weeks that we have been back to the coast, we have been spending our days unpacking all of the many bags, boxes and suitcases, taking care of dental/medical appointments and leaving time and space to just chill and take in the beauty all around us.
My recovery from spinal surgery continues to go incredibly well….how could it not with all of this as my private little physical therapy playground?
Central or Coastal Mexico?
Many have asked which we prefer—Central Mexico or Coastal Mexico, and honestly, we love them both–each in their own, special way! They both have their own unique attributes, beauty and characteristics. We are ocean people true and true and for as much as we love magical San Miguel de Allende and other parts of Central Mexico, being back on the coast is a decision we are happy about. Mexico, in all of her varied and dynamic beauty, is home to us.
From Firefighter and Teacher to Photovoltaic Designer and Writer, and now 12-year-old twins, we continue to embrace our re-invented, re-inspired lives in Mexico—grateful for this Mexican-American Dream that we gratefully and bravely are creating for our family.
