Sayulita Visitor


Grammy came for a visit, and the kids were very excited to see her. And not only because she brought candy or rented a golf cart to pop around town. Grammy has been coming to Sayulita to visit us for years. We have our routines—places we always eat, beaches we always go to, and circuses we like to attend.

This year we’ve had to content ourselves with the campground cats, because there are virtually no stray dogs running around town. We like to believe that it’s because the work of the dog rescue here in town, and the work that they’ve been doing for years, is working.

I honestly would have had no idea that Easter was coming. I would have known Semana Santa was on the way—Mexico resort towns explode for Semana Santa—but the bunnies and chocolate I would have forgotten about.

Lowe’s gotten good enough that he not only steers, but handles the gas and brakes, too. He also knows how to get everywhere. He’s quite proud of himself.

This guy gives the kids skateboard lessons each evening.

This was the discovery that they could catch a wave together on the same boogie board.


Waiting on churros.

Punta Mita.

  1. You don’t know what you are missing ! You could be operating a punch press 10 hours a day 5 days a week. Being micro managed with 2 “supervisors” for each worker. Doesn’t that seem better than the tortured existence that you are forced to endure on the road ?
    “not jealous”

  2. OK, I know you don’t expound upon food too much, except to say that tacos are a favorite. I had to find out what “Gringas” are. They were listed on the outdoor sign of a burrito stand in one of byiur pictures. I work with a bunch of folks from Mexicali and they gave me the low down. Gringas are quesadillas with al pastor pork and pineapple slices. And the pork and pineapple are grilled on that vertical grill thingamabobber.

    Have you had these? I know you’re married to a gringa (like me), but the good version sounds tasty!

    1. Of course we’ve had gringas! I remember years ago thinking they were something special that the Mexicans whipped up for us gringos too afraid to eat their food. 🙂

      And yeah, if you don’t love a gringa, then you aren’t human.

  3. What an awesome life you have created for your family:). I wish we had thought outside the box when my children were young…. I hope I can do some amazing things when I have Grandchikdren, probably not as adventurous:) But I too am a beach person but mostly in Connecticut and Maine.

  4. Long time follower and first time commentor. My wife and I have followed you all since 2011 after I was given your book, Bumfuzzle. You have played a major role in inspiring our adventures. We are currently working and living in Finland, but are planning a full-time RV journey starting in August. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for the inspiration and keep the posts coming.

  5. $10!!!! inflation in Old Mexico..I hope that was for a case full!!! Grandma’s secret face is perfect!!

    1. You do know that the $ symbol is not solely owned by the United States, right? 🙂 That’s 10 pesos, about .50 cents US.

  6. I’ve always been impressed that your Mom visits you in the wonderful locations you frequent. I’ve talked about you and your family and the adventures with my parents and in-laws. They don’t seem as keen on visiting us outside the U.S. I guess they would have to if that’s where we were exploring, but I don’t think they’d be happy about it. Which is really sad. Has Grammy always been a willing explorer?

    1. She’s always been willing, but her travels only began when ours did. Good luck. Hopefully you can change their view.

  7. re secrets … I have a few choice words that are reserved for when i am working on my cars, my 5 yr old grandson calls them garage words and knows that they can only be used when working in the garage and things go wrong. Last weekend he told me all the other words he is not allowed to say, I guess my face looked like grammys… made my garage words look tame, hahaha kids these days.
