Seeing the fields of wildflowers near Valle de Juarez, Jalisco and also seeing Barb and Sal again

The beautiful town of Etzatlan, Jalisco and the rich agricultural land around it

Meeting up with Lee in Mazatlan, Sinaloa

And blog readers Contessa and Colin on Isla la Piedra, Sinaloa

Watching the Mexican families on the beach at Rincon de Guayabitos, Nayarit

Meeting up with blog readers, Brenda and Gerry on the beach in Sayulita, Nayarit

Visting Kevin's cousin and his wife, Darl and Cindy (sorry no picture of them), in Puerto Vallarta

ATVing in the mountains with Gary (owner of the Altrarose Rancho RV Park), near Valle de Banderas, Nayarit

All the wonderful Mexican food for the campers at our Christmas feast at Hacienda Contreras.

  8. I bet learning the tamal spread was fun! I've never got the hang of it. Gotta have just a bit of masa on the outside so when you recalentarlos, it is nice and crispy!
