It ain't easy being a working stiff in Zihuatanejo, but it sure beats being a working stiff in any city. Especially when my daily "transit" to work, like many of my friends and neighbors here in el Centro, is simply downstairs to my office. Yeah, man! This is the life!

Fresh locally grown coffee. Fresh locally grown fruit. Fresh locally grown spouse! Oh, wait... ;-)

The tourist season seems quite slow. Certainly not many affluent tourists, though they are hitting the market early to get their daily foodstuffs for the beach. The folks who are here certainly aren't having to wait in any lines. Even the daily flow of passengers to La Isla and Las Gatas seems subdued. We've got a little more than 2 weeks left to supposedly make enough sales to last us until the next tourist season in November. Hah! There's a reason we call it "Septihambre".

A bright golden sunrise greeted us as we arrived a little later than usual to the pier this morning.

Our friend Margarita and her family are some of the hardest working people we know, Setting up their wares every morning and putting them all away again every evening. They have an amazing little shop right in front of the offices of the Sector Naval Militar by the pier. Great hats!

This lady sells delicious aguas frescas at the mercado de los pescadores in the mornings. Looks like she's got some agua de jamaica today. My favorite!
