Christmas Dinner

WHERE ARE WE? La Penita, Mexico

Merry Christmas to all our Family and Friends.  

Christmas is about being together with good people, and we saw evidence of this as we walked Archie this morning.  There were many Mexican people on the beach and the kids were all having a ball.  How awesome is it to see some kids all holding hands while they wait for the waves to sweep them off their feet.  

here it comes


hang on

We were invited by Steve and Julie to partake in the Christmas dinner in the big RV park on the hill.  Sometimes they don't take people from outside the park but this year we made the cut and so we headed up there about 4:30.  It was nice that Steve and Julie didn't have to run the bar for this occasion, so we got to visit with them and Don and Josie.   Steve and Julie run the Corner Bar in the Park as volunteers and normally they are busy behind the bar so we can't visit very well.  Tonight they hired a helper so they could have Christmas supper in peace.  Thanks for inviting us.

Lots of people there.  Not sure how many but well over 100 I would say.  The RV park is right full this year.

Josie made a lovely little shell Christmas ornament for us.  It is a palm tree with a Mexican flag on the beach.  It is all made from little fragments of glass she finds on the beach.  

We had turkey and all the trimmings, a meal fit for a king!! A little visiting and some dancing and home we went soon after La Penita midnight!! (9 pm).   We love watching the leaf cutter ants when we walk at night.  This colony must be huge because there was quite a line of them hauling leaves.  We didn't investigate because the line went into the graveyard right beside us.

So it is with a full heart and stomach that we say Good Nite.  I have to show you the pretty flowers outside our back window.


  1. Merry Christmas. I really enjoy your blog. I'm glad you and the wife are adaptable to Mexican timing. I couldn't deal with it but then I don't live in Mexico so it's all good. So many lost loved this year. I'm very sorry for your loss. God bless....

  2. We were sooo happy to have you join us to share Christmas dinner with us! Christmas is about family, and you certainly are. Chosen family. Xoxo

  3. It is always wonderful to share anything with family and friends. It looks like your circle just got a lot bigger.
