Sometimes the days just go by too quickly. Here in Punta Mita right now we’ve got a really cool group of friends that we’re not eager to leave behind. Ouest has made friends with a couple of college age girls that she calls her “grande girlfriends” while she scans the beach for them. “Mama, where is my grande girlfriend?”
There are also lots of kids under ten running around with parents born in the same decade as us. So it isn’t even the fact that there are kids for Ouest and Lowe to play with as it is that there are actual cruisers in our age bracket around for us to hang out with. This is pretty rare for us to come across in our cruising life, and really seems to be specific to Mexican cruising.
Anyway, the days just come and go before we know it here—tomorrow we move on.
This morning we met a Bum friend for breakfast on the beach. The kids were amazing—playing, eating, and generally just enjoying themselves. Then some other friends showed up to paddle out and try and catch a couple small waves. That was it, both Ouest and Lowe were going in. Ouest’s little surfer dude, Teddy, helped her climb up on the board and I pushed them into a couple of waves. Pretty awesome seeing all these little kids (there was another one-year-old too) out there loving the water this much. Just another one of those “this is what it’s all about” moments.
