T.S. Aletta Misses Zih

The past couple of days were full of warnings from the Servicio Meteorológico Nacional (SMN) and all levels of government about the torrential rains that were coming to our region. I have't seen any reports of torrential rains anywhere in Guerrero, but we sure didn't get any locally that I'm aware of. However, we did get a good strong breeze that kept the fishermen in port, and the first Tropical Storm of the season, Aletta, formed up right in front of our coast and is heading away to the west-northwest, but as far as I know we only had some scattered sprinkles in the area, one that caused a tragic accident on the big curve heading from El Mirador to El Posquelite in Ixtapa from excessive speeds on wet pavement.

The breeze fortunately brought our temperatures down making for great sleeping weather with the windows open listening to the sounds of the light surf in the bay. One of our favorite sounds! Ahhhh, this is the life!

A recent colorful sunrise.

Last night from the pier we watched a fire burn up a palapa roof in El Almacén. Nobody else at the pier seemed to even notice it. Except maybe this Macaco.

We were treated to a lovely rainbow this morning in Zihuatanejo Bay.
