Piedra de Tlacoyunque

We left our spot near "el Centro" in Zihuatanejo early yesterday, but pulled in to the huge Commercial Mexicana store to do a grocery shop. Deal of the day? An imported bottle of Scotch for 90 pesos ($6.93). I love Mexico.

We only drove about 100 kms to a protected turtle sanctuary beach that we had boondocked at twice before. The last time was only last February, so we didn't really bother taking any more pictures of Sherman parked up. You can see those pictures here...

But the last two times there hasn't been anybody around. This time, there were a lot of Mexican families fishing. Not sure why they weren't there before, but this time it was busy!

Lots of families fishing.

I saw this fishing boat coming along that looked like it was going to cross as soon as the sun hit the horizon.

And it did! What a cool photo...looks like the fishing boat is in a bubble!

We left early this morning, and have already driven 40 kms or so. Only another 90 kms to Acapulco Trailer Park where we will spend three days. Daughter Lindsey and grandson Cameron arrive tomorrow!


  1. That's one of those pictures that only presents itself once in a great while. Good shooting.I'm not a scotch drinker , but I'm sure the beer prices would keep me happy.Have fun with your Grandson. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

  2. This header pic is my favorite one so far. And those birds just happened to cooperate and stay there till the boat went by the sun. You guys are so lucky!! I bet you are really excited to see Lindsay and Cameron. Have fun!

  3. Yes it was definitely a cool picture.

  4. What a unique and lovely photo! We are enjoying your blog very much.

  5. I think it is time for you guys to consider publishing a book of Mexico photos!

  6. Love the photos but even more impressive to me is the price of scotch!

  7. Love the header pic today - simply gorgeous! Enjoy your daughter and grandbaby - have a great visit!

  8. What a great photo! You were just in the right place at the right time. Priceless!

  9. A stunning header photo! Perfect timing! I bet you're excited about catching up with Lindsey and Cameron!

  11. Wow, I would have been so proud to capture that moment ..

    That is truly one of the best photos we have ever seen !!

    Congrats ... Trent

  12. I also think you should publish a book of photos, or a calender, or screen saver disk, Amazing photos! Love reading your blog, thank you.

  13. That isn't a cool photo...that is an AMAZING photo! WOW!

  14. What an amazing header photo. I think you should submit it for publication or a photo contest or something! We've sure have been enjoying following along on your Mexican travels.

    Howdy R&K,
    I LIKED THE OTHER HEADER!! But this one is spooky; looks like the Flyin' Dutchman, the old 'ghost ship'!! Are all 15 year olds that pretty?? Ruth should have gotten her a job as an extra in the movie; just looking gorgeous!!!
    You can get more $10 parking places than anyone I know!!
    Ol' Toothy was probably Mama-gator!
    Good thing you didn't find a little one struggling to hatch; she may have taken offense!!
    $7 for how big a bottle of Scotch?

  16. You have captured a beautiful moment in time. This will be with you two forever.

    A ship in a bubble perhaps...


  17. That photo is worthy of being entered into a competition. It is wonderful. Once in a lifetime! Thanks,

    Mike and Dee

  18. Not only the fishing boat in the circle of the sun, but two pelicans looking on. Great shot.

  19. GREAT shots! Will be anxious to hear all about your stay in Acapulco
    and family visit!

  20. We are always marveling at the travel you are doing in a motorhome with some of the narrow and cobblestoned streets that we encountered in Mexico. We love your blog and look forward to reading about your next adventure.

  21. Who's in the Roadtrek parked in front in the photo? Not Doug and Kathy by chance?


We love hearing from you! Please take the time to leave a comment...
