A Kinder Gentler Zih

The old Zihuatanejo families never cease to impress me with their kindness and caring and their sense of kinship. Even most folks who aren't related by blood or marriage treat their peers with love, kindness, generosity and respect, and they go out of their way to be supportive as best they can. It's an inspiring characteristic, and it's something much of the rest of the world could certainly use a lot more of.

Not sure what's going on with the local water company, CAPAZ. The rivers are full, the aquifers are replenished, but everyone is still complaining about the lack of water service. Hmmm...

After several lovely days last week, the heat of La Canícula is back. It tried to rain last night, but the few drops we got only increased the humidity. It sure makes Pátzcuaro an attractive summer vacation getaway destination for locals to escape the sweltering heat. They had a granizada the other day that made it almost look like winter, and their daily temps always make us jealous.

Here's a photo of the Spotted Eagle Ray that my wife and a stranger rescued on Playa Lerdo de Tejada a couple of mornings ago, the first small beach from Playa Principal heading towards La Madera. They found it on the beach with a fishing hook in its lower wing and fishing line wrapped around a rock. They unhooked it but then then had to help it back into the water. Here's a shot of it right after they removed the hook but before helping back out to to the water.

Last evening at the pier families, friends and couples were enjoying the refreshing breeze and the lovely sights of Zihuatanejo Bay. It began to sprinkle while we were there but we didn't notice anyone complaining or leaving because of it. To the contrary, it made for an even more pleasant tropical twilight. This is part of what Zihuatanejo is all about!
