Monday started with an awesome breakfast cooked by our travel mate Seņor Jeff. We sat up in the open dining area overlooking the bay thinking how much we enjoy being here in Zihua and not home in the wet, windy and cold on Vancouver Island.
Headed off to the bank as my start up cash was gone. Took a taxi over to La Ropa and parked ourselves at La Perla. Our first timers were impressed as we were on walking out onto the white sands of La Ropa.
Not many tourists here, the beach and bay very quiet today, feeling like we are kings once again with the place to ourselves but worried for the locals who must be struggling with the lack of tourism.
We got some chairs and umbrella etc 50 pesos per set and began another hard day at the beach. Went for the normal walk up and down the beach, I love the feeling of the soft sand as you walk followed by the washing over of the water from the ocean.
We played some dice, drank some cervezas, chatted, swam and relaxed all the while being de-stressed from our daily routines back home by the constant and steady crashing of the waves on the beach.
Headed down to Rossy's for lunch as we were only using La Perla for base camp. Great food and service at Rossy's, portions very large great value as well.
Walked backed to La Perla and reset for the afternoon, Juan the waiter was extremely polite and provided great service as well.
We ended the day at La Perla with some Grande Miami Vice and toasted to another successful adventure.
On the way back we stopped at Brisas del Mar to see the sunset on the patio bar and have Happy Hour with our favourite bartender Federico. We ended up staying for 2 hours - oops and had a great walk back to the Casa - except our stomachs were so sore from all the laughing we have been doing.
Stopped at the Tienda and picked up some more eggs for breakfast tomorrow. Quick shower and a cocktail and off to Casa Vieja for dinner.
The meal was excellent as always and J.R. was an excellent host and teacher of spanish, we may actually learn some this time. You have to have the ribs at Casa Vieja - simply the best.
They were also very quiet, only 1 other table but food service was spot on.
Walked back to the Casa and had an early night.
This vacationing is hard work ;)
