Playa Ventura (day 2)

A lot of Mexicans are on holiday now, so Playa Ventura is a little busier than when we were here in February 2009. There is another family tent camping at our spot, so we are sharing the private swimming pool.

We set up our table and chairs in the shade of a palapa overlooking the beach, and then took Whiskey for a walk. It was a pretty lazy day consisting of book reading, card playing, and backgammon. Ruth and I did walk into town (about 1km, .6 mile) and pick up a few grocery items while Alex stayed behind with Whiskey.

And then around sunset we walked along the beach in the other direction.

Still no cellular signal here, so tomorrow on the way to Puerto Escondido we’ll try and get our internet account refilled. It may have to wait until we’re actually in Puerto Escondido and that’s about 280 kms (174 miles) and a six hour drive tomorrow.

Alex arrived in Mexico with a bit of a cold, which hasn’t gotten any better yet. Now it seems I’m feeling a little scratchy in the throat area. I haven’t had a cold in a long time, so hopefully I can fight this one off.
