An art walk to benefit the turtles takes over the complex

NUEVO VALLARTA, Nayarit, Mexico - The music blaring out of the speakers was vintage Roy Orbison, the Beach Boys, Van Morrison and some melodious sprinklings of Madonna. Oh! And there was some Mexican tunes, too.

It was the annual art walk to benefit the turtle protection program here, held on the grounds of the Bahia del Sol condos where we are spending two weeks.

It was noisy, but fun.

There was even a French baker in residence, selling bread, croissants (of course), and assorted pastries so rich, you gain weight by simply looking at them for too long.

At the same time, out in Banderas Bay, a sailboat race was underway, reminding the Admiral and I that we needed to get back our training regimen.

This afternoon we expect to have Sasha Fox visiting and, if she wants, I will be taking her out to boogie board for the first time.

It is my first time of the season, so we'll see how it goes.

Bahia del Sol has a great sandy beach, but also a very nice (and warm) swimming pool.

If the waves are too intimidating for Senorita Fox to boogie board, we'll spend our time in the pool.

I tried it out yesterday and it's even warm enough for Admiral Fox to swim in.

Time to get back to training.
