Zihuatanejo continues to enjoy perfect weather. Something we appreciate and that perhaps is helping to keep us healthy.

The three people who have been in quarantine since last week or so continue to show no signs of contagion. No other new developments in Zihuatanejo to report, but a number of foreigners appear to be showing signs of psychosis. Calm down and relax, people.

No shortage of toilet paper or anything at stores where Mexicans shop. The story posted by a reader earlier that appeared in El Sol de Acapulco does not reflect local reality, and appears to be simply more "yellow journalism". To be expected.

This photo was taken about an hour ago. Not telling you where because too many of you nice folks appear to be in panic-buying mode.

A lovely view of sunrise from the pier that we've missed while the pier has been under construction.

The casita is almost done.

Can we walk on the new pier yet, or do we have to have "connections?"

It's not open to the public yet, but a known crazy old gringo was there yesterday sitting there morning being his crazy self and nobody bothered him and apparently he stayed out of the way of the workers. These photos are from between shifts before 8 in the morning. Maybe you can take a tour then but ask permission first.

Keep the pictures coming. Reminds us what we have to look forward in Jan 2021 and get our minds off the insanity that's happening around us. Some of the stores (Kroger and similar) have changed from 24 hours to shorter hours. Because of the hoarding, when Kroger opens at 6 am, the first hour is for seniors only so they feel safer and hoping there are more stock on the shelves for them.

I like it! A sun lamp, another bag of sand, and a mask. No friends allowed on your beach.

Not that you don't like any body- just stay 6 ft away while you are laying in the sand. A friend's wife is a nurse and he said she is driving him nuts and is thinking about doing a short time rental till this passes.
