Puerto Escondido (day 3)

Mary took Ruth into town today to do some shopping. Ruth wanted a new swimsuit and we are both better off if I don’t have to be there for clothes shopping!

Puerto Escondido (day 2)

This morning, our friend Mary and her daughter Nataly and her niece Danna came with us and we took the collectivo into town and did a grocery shop at the relatively new Bodega Aurrera store in Puerto Escondido. It’s not a very big store, and I don’t think it was well planned.

Return to Puerto Escondido

We pulled out of our spot at Playa Zipolite at 7:15am. We wanted to make it throught the tight streets of Mazunte before there was any traffic, and we did okay. Still, the first 8 kms (5 miles) or so was pretty slow going.

Playa Zipolite (day 7)

Well I guess it was a 24 hour stomach bug! I woke up this morning surprised that I had slept so well through the night, and proceeded to feel better throughout the day. Now, I feel just about fine, I think!

Playa Zipolite (day 6)

One thing I forgot to tell you about regarding the downside to RV’ing in Mexico. Every time that we have been here, we have picked up some kind of stomach bug at some point during our stay. Usually related to eating out…

Playa Zipolite (day 5)

We each went for our walks on the beach this morning. We pretty much have to go separately now because Whiskey doesn’t seem to enjoy it. It’s about a 2 km (1.6 mile) walk. Although she was a little more chipper today…I think she just wasn’t feeling well for a couple of days.

Playa Zipolite (day 4)

We don’t talk much about the downsides to RV’ing in Mexico because we feel the benefits far outweigh the drawbacks. But there are some minor issues that you have to deal with if you want to RV inexpensively in Mexico.

Playa Zipolite (day 3)

At around 9:00am, we started walking towards the village of Zipolite. From there, we needed to take a collectivo taxi to the next village of Mazunte so that we could visit the sea turtle sanctuary.

Playa Zipolite (day 2)

Didn’t do much today. Went for a walk down to the other end of the beach and then through part of the town and back to here.

Playa Zipolite

We stopped and got some groceries, and then some propane. We try and refill our propane tank when it gets down to about ¼ full. It’s a large tank and from full to ¼ full seems to last us about a month. That’s pretty good with the fridge running constantly on propane, and all the cooking we do.

Playa Chahue (Huatulco, day 19)

Had a good sleep parked up on the dead end street. We were parked just far enough off the road that nobody could see us down there, and as far as we know, nobody did.

Playa Bocana (Huatulco, day 18)

We were up well before 7:00am, but it was still almost 7:45am before we actually hopped on the bikes and went for a ride. Not sure why it takes us so long to get going sometimes!

Playa Tangolunda (Huatulco, day 17)

When Ruth took Whiskey out this morning, she came back with my other sandal! It had a few tooth marks in it, so it was obviously a dog or two who had walked away with them during the night before. But I’m glad to have them back.

Yearly full time living expenses

Readers Rob and Sherrie from Alberta asked about our yearly expenses while living fulltime in Sherman. We've kept track of pretty much every dime that we've spent, so I can kind of give you a breakdown.

Playa Tangolunda (Huatulco, day 16)

Ruth took Whiskey for a walk this morning as I was watching the stock market. It is sure an interesting time for gold, and there is a lot of money to be made with the junior gold stocks. It will be interesting to see how the whole U.S. monetary policy situation ends over the next few years.
