Almost too hot

Yesterday morning, Ruth and I went for a walk on the beach.

Our regular readers know that we aren't beach people. Especially when the temperature is 32C (90F). We much prefer to be in more moderate temperatures. Perfect for us is maybe 24C (75F) during the day, and 10C (50F) at night. It's one of the reasons that we spend a lot of time away from the coast at higher elevations while we are in Mexico.

And if we are going to be at the coast, we like scenery that is a little more diverse. At this location south of Acapulco, there isn't much to see. Walking on the beach is the same thing, mile after mile.

Looking south.

Looking north.

Even the birds all look the same.

At first, we thought these were little ones with their parents!
But they are an entirely different bird.

However we have a saying in Canada... plus 30 is better than minus 30!

And that is still true. We would rather be too hot than too cold!

After our walk, Ruth and I hopped in the collectivo to go back to the big Chedraui store. We had two birthdays in a row to celebrate! Yesterday was Martha's birthday and so we had to get another cake. We couldn't carry two the day before!

Plus, we figured we would make it worth our while. The 30% off booze sale was on its last day so we bought our full month's supply of wine while we were there. It made the 60 peso cost of the collectivo for the two of us more than worthwhile.

The afternoons are simply too hot to do anything but sit in the shade. It's quite pleasant in the shade, but you don't want to move because any movement causes you to sweat.

We will enjoy it more when we get down to Puerto Escondido and Huatulco. Yes, it will still be hot, but we like the scenery and coastline better down there.

At happy hour, we celebrated Martha's birthday...

Happy Birthday Martha!
Martha is older than me... but only by 4 days!

Today is another relax beach day. Maybe we will get in the water today.

And in Canada...


  1. I’m with you, but it’s never too late to change the itinerary to head back into the mts! He-he, jk, sort of...😉

    1. The only problem is that there isn't another route inland for us to take to get to our other destinations. Guess we will just have to "suffer" with this heat for a little longer, lol.
