First, we went for a walk before it got too hot. Lindsey stayed behind and had a nap while Ruth and I took Cameron in his stroller. Made it to a spot where there is a beautiful view...
Playa Zicatela looking towards the city of Puerto Escondido.
The Playa Zicatela area is growing with quite a few places under construction. It is odd to see very nice houses right next door to a family living in a cabana. It's not like where there are "nice" neighbourhoods versus "poor" neighbourhoods. Everybody just lives together.
The house is nice, but I could just as easily live in the cabana!
The roads in these neighbourhoods essentially look like this. But, you don't have to worry about people speeding because there are too many bumps. And, property taxes are only about $60 a year!
Then we went and relaxed on the beach for a few hours. The waves were pretty good today and there were a lot of surfers out. Playa Zicatela is a world renowned surfing beach with many international competitions held here. This is not really surfing season because the waves swell TWICE as big in the May through August period.
Some of these guys are really good!
Cameron got tired watching the surfers.
Later in the afternoon we went over to Alfredo's mother's place where Mary was making "Pollo a la Barbacoa" for everyone. It's more like a chicken stew than it is barbeque, so not sure where the name comes from!

The finished product...yummm!
Today we are moving Sherman over to la Barra. We've kind of changed our plans a bit. Originally we were going to take Sherman down to Huatulco about 2 hours south of here, and then back here where one of us would get Lindsey and Cameron back to Acapulco on a bus. But that would make a long travel day for them, so instead we will stay in this area for another week and then drive Sherman back to Acapulco. Not sure where we'll head from there, but maybe up to Mexico City.
