Romance y TentaZIHón Tropical

:sunbehindraincloud: We finally got a nice little rain early this Sunday evening. Just what we needed. The plants were looking thirsty and the dust was kicking up. Brought the temps down nicely and sent the few folks out on the beach scurrying for shelter. Onda tropical #25 is passing by and rains are expected this Sunday evening as well as Monday morning. A good reason to play Jimmy Buffett music and dance around like a Florida beach bum.

:heartonfire: Not a day goes by that I don't give thanks to be where I am with whom I'm with and doing what I do. I was still knee-high to a gator when I realized I wasn't cut out for "the American dream" and what passes for culture up there. And while I had romantic inclinations fairly young, I had my doubts about "love at first sight" being anything more than hormones and pheromones until it happened to me. And not once, but twice, with the same person who has been my wife for almost 33 years. And that's why I dare refer to myself as the luckiest Gringo in Mexico. It's a lifestyle that's not for everyone, but it was sure meant for me.

[image]Speaking of romance, a local boutique hotel that certainly is romantic is Tentaciones Hotel & Restaurante. An inviting place that will leave you wanting more of what they have to offer: a luxury bed and breakfast boutique hotel in a private villa overlooking La Ropa Beach with only 4 suites, a restaurant and a unique pool bar lounge offering a panoramic view of Zihuatanejo Bay and its beaches. They also have a gourmet open-air restaurant that will transport you to a magical place full of temptations.

A pesar del descuido y abuso por parte del gobierno municipal, sigue este majestuoso árbol amate dando protección, frescura y sombra frente a la bahía de Zihuatanejo.

Thanks again for your continued remberance of Jimmy Buffett. I have been a parrothead forever and I really appreciate you respecting him Thanks again.

Please keep Jimmy tributes coming for at least a week, very hard to take this one. May those in the afterlife be dancing and singing to live music while those that remain have recordings and tributes by live musicians. It should all be good.

As it seemed that he was the patriarch of a very large family, maybe an altar during Día de Muertos will help.

I read( re-read) your second paragraph - and I can say now after living/operating a business out there for 5 years - I aspire to have what you have in terms of a early decision you made not to chase the "American Dream".

Academically I get it - but, can't seem to extract myself from the chase... I can honestly say that I wish I could make a Zihu lifestyle work/fit for my life... Can't bring myself to calm down toward the chase but, as mentioned, I WISH, I'd have what you have Rob. A peace about the chase and your decision.

Even living and working out in Zihu - It was HIGH performance for my business and its output - wrong area to employee "my aspirations"...

Long live Zihu and its community... :smilingfacewithsunglasses:
