_9 December ‘09 Day 2 and some of us are already involved with the events of the “social calendar”. First thing this morning found Sol bouncing around in the pool playing water volleyball…I wish I would have had my camera with me. Louise and I took a long walk down the beach. The sand is so soft that each time you put your foot down it sinks to just below your ankles and with the steep slope down to the surf, it makes for some good exercise. We also have some friends that have shown up here. Keith and Louise are a couple from England that have taken a year off, purchased a motor home, and traveled around the US and Mexico. They will be in Mexico for another 5 months. At the campground last night, we enjoyed a margarita/taco night.
_Free margaritas and 5 wonderful tacos for 40 pesos ($3.00). With the dinner and drinks, and the incredible view from the palapa, we have decided we’ll be staying. One of the campers here is a member of a bluegrass musical group that is playing twice a week at one of the local bars, so Sol, Carol, Keith, Louise, Lou, and I descended upon them for our “desert”. Well a couple of us had a really good time last night but all was well this morning as they made it to the highly competitive volleyball match and didn’t show any signs of a ... This afternoon the 6 of us joined together in Sol’s truck and headed into Rincon de Guayabitos.
_Ricon is about 3 miles further up the beach and is the largest beach town in the area prior to Puerto Vallarta. Ricon is a destination beach town with lots of happenings. After driving around town for awhile we parked and hit the sand and a chance to find one of the “local watering establishments”. You can see, some of us had a good time.
_At one point I wasn’t sure whether Sol was awake or nodded off
_for a minute. Well he was just kidding, he’s awake…
