Our Last Week in Mexico


Sunrise from the campground, we took warning and it did rain later.


On weekends Mexican campers come in and camp near Claude and Erika from Switzerland.


We take a walk on the beach every morning past this little Mexican Craft stand and Peggy has never ventured near it to see what they may be selling



This winter whenever we got an East wind the sea grass piled up on the beach. The beach is normally nice white sand, but on some mornings we would find piles of weeds over 2' high. You had a hard time walking in the water around the piles. Depending on the exact wind direction these weeds would pile up in different places each day. One thing the weeds did do was to provide lots of work for the Mexican laborers. Sometimes they dug holes in the sand and buried the weeds. At other times they would carry it away in wheel barrows and dump them above the high water line.


The beach is nearly 1-1/2 miles long. So we would walk up to the North end and take a short rest. This is as far as you can go, It is the start of an old hurricane damaged resort, and their guards will stop you if you go beyond this point.


We then walk down to the South end where there are some old palapas from another abandoned resort. We made ourselves some benches from scrap wood and marked it off with rocks like it belonged to us.RockNames Mags & Peggy enjoying the bench.

Believe it or not but hardly anyone ever messed with our names the whole Winter. Once it destroyed by high waves and another time by some weekend campers.


This past Sunday we took a ride with Claude & Mags to visit Glen at his place in Tankah. It’s about 20 mi away. Glen is planning to drive his rig out of Mexico when Claude leaves. It was getting around dinner time when we left so we stopped at a nice upscale (for us) restaurant called Oscar & Lalo’s. The place has lots of ambience and the food was excellent.


  1. You are so tan!! Last day in Mexico! Drive safe and I love you both. The same thing happens daily in Punta Cana with the weeds on the beach

  2. What a nice view!
    Maxico is such a beautiful place. You can enjoy a lot of things during luxury mexico holidays. It's worthwhile.
