I wonder where we'll end up tonight?

Sure enough, we decided to stay put, relax, and just enjoy the view from where we are parked. We're in no rush to get anywhere, so when we have a nice beautiful spot like this we might as well enjoy it. But, we are heading out this morning...don't want to overstay our welcome.

We did go for a walk for an hour yesterday though. Beautiful area.

Here are some pics from our walk...

The little church in front of where we are parked. You can see Sherman on the left side way at the back.

Too bad it was locked up. We would have liked to see the inside.

Out for a morning walk.

Don't forget to enter our latest giveaway if you haven't already...

Some nice view of the lake.

Our neighbors! Donkeys sure are cute.

Sherman, overlooking Lake Villa Victoria.

For dinner, we roasted a portion of that filet mignon tenderloin that we had bought the other day. It was delicious!

Ready for the oven.

Dinner is served!

It gets cold at night way up here at 2,600 meters (8,500 ft)! It was only 7C (45F) inside the motorhome when we woke up this morning. 

Usually the sun warms things up fairly quickly, but it's foggy as can be out there this morning. We'll have to wait until that burns off some before we head out.

Again, no idea where we're going to end up overnight. 

Today only...a variety of magazine subscriptions are available for only $5...

And in Canada, a great deal on a top quality portable air compressor!


  1. Looks peaceful. Just the same, I can hear the roosters crowing.

  2. Looking forward to your next stop.

    1. It has another nice view but is not as private.

  3. You have a beautiful camping spot. Mexico has some very pretty scenery.

    1. It was a lovely spot and oh so quiet. Mexico is full of beautiful scenery.

  4. Donkeys are very cute - we had one when I was a kid.

    1. We love the burros but I am a real sucker for them. I wish I had one as a kid! :-)

  5. Apologies if you have addressed this before (new to the blog): how do you find places like this and the others?

    1. In Mexico we use the Churches "Mexico Camping" book but places like this aren't listed in it. We will also talk to other Mexicans to see if they know of any spots we might be able to camp at but mostly Kevin uses Google maps and street view. For instance with this one we knew that this lake was there before we left and knew that lakes can be good places to stay. He would then use google maps and street view to see if he could find a suitable place, once he has done that he checks the roads in on google street view as well to make sure they are suitable for our RV. It all takes a bit of time. Ones like where we are now, we just go by the seat of our pants. We had one place in mind but found out that to sleep over night there you had to have permission for the municipality which was in the next town beforehand and we didn't want to backtrack so we just went on to the town and while walking around the town we look for a suitable spot and then ask permission to stay.

    2. Fantastic. Love your spirit. 35' towing a TOAD limits that a bit but we're adventurous too. I've memorized the Church book and was reading it last night, yet again. Sort of updating it with posts like yours and the Facebook group that you started. Thanks. Hope we cross paths in Feb/Mar.

    3. Yes, having a bigger vehicle plus the toad will limit you to some places. The Churches book is good even though it is getting older but it is a nice guide to have, although some people look at it as the bible for travelling in Mexico. There are so many places that you can stay just by looking for them and asking. Hotel parking lots, restaurant parking lots and balnearios are just a few, people need to think outside the box sometimes. We are hoping that the fb forum will help to add more of these types of places as well as the normal campgrounds.

      Would love to met up with you. Keep us posted if you are near us at point. :-)
