Something In Zih Air

Last Saturday was Día de San Juan, and since there are so many Juans and Juanas in Mexico this is a huge day, usually celebrated locally by going to the beach. When my wife and her sisters were children growing up in Zihuatanejo it often meant showing off a new bathing suit, one of the things that made their family somewhat unique since most folks then wore clothing in the water, being either too poor or prudish for bathing suits. When I met my future wife on the beach here in the early 70's she and her companion Carmelita Sotelo were the only local girls on La Ropa that day wearing actual bathing suits.

Besides the celebrations for Día de San Juan, we also had a tropical storm forming up off our coast, Dora, now a cat. 1 hurricane. It made for some ominous and dramatic skies that late afternoon when the winds picked up and the clouds rolled in. Fortunately the few intermittent rains have been light.

A partial rainbow formed outside the bay behind some of the clouds as the storm closed in.
