A blur of activity and very little blogging done

LA MANZANILLA, Jalisco, Mexico - The last week or so was a blur of activity and while plenty of photos were shot, not much was done in the way of blogging.

I did post a couple of things to From Where I Sit and to the Class of '66.

One major development was the construction of the road on our beach lot, though because it is Semana Santa (Easter Week), the next step of putting in a septic system and water will be delayed. Still, being able to drive out onto the lot - and not have to deal with sand spurs sticking in my socks - is great.

But the days have not been all roadwork and driveways and property.

We spent several nice days at the beach (and around Melaque and Barra de Navidad) with Pat & Sanders Lamont, who left earlier this week to go back to their mountain retreat in California, where they report the snow is melting.

And now that we have spent more time out on Admiralty Beach, we are beginning to see more possibilities for a beach residence - even if it only the Grey Goose Express with a palapa.

Wave on!
