Jesus and I are so fortunate to be able to live where we do. It isn't all rainbows and unicorns (i.e. no water from Capaz) but we still somehow manage ;-). We took a trip to Petatlan this week for a visit and took some time to explore some of the surrounding countryside. It isn't the beach, but it has its own charms. Below are some pictures of our sunsets and adventures.

We are still offering 20% off of rooms that are booked 60 days in advance if you type "paradise" into the coupon box at our B&B website. Winter is coming, book your getaway soon:thumb:

A couple of this past week's sunsets.

My predawn walk with the dogs was serene, if you look in the street you can see our dog Kayla patiently waiting for me to finish taking a picture so we can hurry up and get home and get fed :-)

This isn't a completely natural scene, but this coconut grove and cows were very pleasant to look at. An added bonus was that it felt at least 5 degrees cooler under these trees.

Thanks for posting your sightings. If only these healthy looking cows could remain healthy looking throughout the dry season/entire year.

The title of this post reminds me that Katherine Krantz, editor of the once popular Zihua magazine "Another Day In Paradise" is running for a congressional seat in Texas. I hope she does well. She is a hard worker, not only for herself, but whatever community she lives in.

I am a bit surprised by the lack of response or at least acknowledgement to this post. Does no one here remember Katherine of "Another Day In Paradise"? It was the original publication promoting the wonderful things about our beloved Zihua.

Out of curiousity, under which political banner is Ms. Krantz running? Ted Cruz's Texas or Beto O'Rourke's Texas? Might give us a hint where her head's at these days.

Yes, she is an ally of Beto's.

Red Texas. Too bad.

Deflection? I don't know what you're talking about. Oh, I see. You want to talk about Katherine Krantz though she has nothing to do with Humberto's photos. Have at it. Odd to see her in politics. Back when I was starting up my website twenty some odd years ago I took a photo and posted it on Ye Olde Message Board warning about a person who drugs their small child, a girl, and then goes around with a bogus excuse that he needs money to buy medicine for the little girl. I mentioned this to Katherine and Coconuts Joe the day I posted it, and both scolded me for it. At the time we were discussing collaborating, but at the mention of the post and their negative response to it I walked out. I gotta be me, ya know.

So now she cares about people. Good for her.

Oh, and the guy still goes around with a drugged little girl asking for money to buy her medicine, though I suspect the current little girl is the product of the sick man with his own little girl who is now grown and has mental illness. Eeewwww.

Small town life. There's nothing quite like it.

Is this the same woman who was the main organizer for Guitar Fest in the early days?

Yes, I think she did a lot of good work for the community despite Rob's negative view of her.

MY negative view? What's negative about it? I thought it was quite frank, honest and relevant. Of course the problem must be meeeee. :fiddle:

Let me know when we can get back to talking about Humberto's beautiful photos. ;-)

I figured you had a thorn in your craw about her for some reason. Sorry for hijacking the thread. It just reminded me at that moment of the magazine title. Guess I should have started a new thread. Sorry for the breach of board etiquette.

A thorn in my craw? I always thought we had a wonderful relationship. Must be the "Kavanaugh effect". :snicker:

Wonderful pictures as always. I've always loved cow pictures, particularly those from here. They show so much variety!

Please keep the pictures coming!
