NEXT DESTINATION? Guadalajara MX.
The other day I told you that a little surprise was on the horizon for Monday. So now I have shown you all a little bit of what it is like to live in Mexico and experience the meaning of Manana. Although this is Mondays blog, today is actually Wednesday and you have all been very patient, with the exception of a few prods in the comment section, so here is the news.
For the last 3 months we have walked to town on the beach and admired all of the beach front properties. One of them had a little RV park with only room for smaller rigs. It is right by the beach and one day I thought, mmmm, I should go have a look so I did. I met the maintenance guy Sergio and asked him for some information about the park. He took me to meet Suzanne and Robert who are the owners. Yes they only can handle smaller motorhomes, EXCEPT for the one spot in the back which can take up to 40 feet and guess what!!! It became available that very morning! We arranged to have lunch with them and worked out a deal. The lady in the spot has bought a house and will be moving when her house is ready in a few weeks. We felt really good about this spot and the owners and Sergio. We think it will be a quiet little retreat for us. So today the few week wait is over and we moved here to Boutique RV Park and Suites right on the ocean!!!!
Here is a quick tour of the park. It is very small about 150 feet wide by 500 feet long. The yard has grass, the pool is beautiful and the ocean is right over there. Sue and I both enjoy being near the ocean.
Kenia came over and helped us with the move. She had her little niece for a while because they are staying just down the beach from us. There is even an old folks swing in the palapa. Kenia had to make sure it was safe for old papa Lorne!!
Robert and Suzanne invited us to a little Birthday party being held for Robert and their business partner Jaqueline. It was on the second floor of their luxury suites and everyone brought appy's. It was a great way to meet the other residents of the park. We watched the sunset from the deck which is something that we didn't get to see from the old park. There is a palapa by the beach and a great swimming pool on the grounds. The palapa is lit up every night.
We had an awesome time and are quite sure we have found a place we can enjoy for quite some time. We are glad we get to try it out for a month before having to make a decision about coming back next year, but right now we are convinced we will be here in the fall again.
So that there is your surprise. So for now life is good. Hope everything is good for you as well. Come see us in our new digs if you are walking the beach!!
