We've done this drive several times before, and we knew that it takes about six hours in the motorhome.
One of the towns along the way. Fortunately, it was a Sunday morning and traffic was fairly light.
Twisty windy two lane roads.
Scenery along the way.
Stopped only twice, once to feed Cameron, and once to feed ourselves some lunch. Arrived at Playa Zicatela, the famous surfing beach just south of Puerto Escondido at about 2:30pm.
In February of 2009, we made a wrong turn and ended up meeting a wonderful Mexican family. Eight days later we were the witnesses for the bride at their wedding! Since then, we are treated like family. Uncle Eugenio owns a small hotel and restaurant right on the beach at Playa Zicatela and he allows us to park Sherman there. Our friend Alfredo works for his uncle, and when we pulled in yesterday, Alfredo was there to greet us. He called his wife Mary and she and daughter Nataly came over to say hello as well. And, Mary is pregnant again and due in May!
We sat around and chatted for most of the evening.
Nataly has grown a lot in the past year! She is now 3 1/2.
Today, Mary is going to come into town with us and go to the bank and do some shopping. Alfredo is going to take a couple of days off work this week so that we can spend some time together.
