Melaque

Occasionally the towns we travel to provide me with a place to work. In Sayulita there was a cheap co-work office. In some campgrounds there is a “rec-room.” In some there is a café. But in most, there is nothing. Fortunately, I have my own office. I sneak out of … Read More

Beach Town Hopping

Moving from Puerto Vallarta to Melaque after a couple weeks hanging around our old stomping grounds. Lowe had to bust open his piggy bank. Ouest bought it for him last year for his birthday. It was like a trick piggy bank, with no plug on the bottom. Occasionally as travelers … Read More

Barefoot and Fancy-Free

I’ve been working on a couple projects lately, and have been slow to get through pics. I don’t have a lot to say about these few days. Just more of our laid-back life. The kids love it when I play this game. For $30 pesos you get three rocks. Hit … Read More

Semana Santa week

With the huge Semana Santa holiday on the way, the stores in town start filling their aisles floor-to-ceiling with cases of beer. To the point that it’s tough to get in the store to buy anything other than beer. In fact it’s tough to even get in the store as … Read More

Slow Roll in Sayulita

Life slows down a lot when we come to Sayulita. We have no pressing needs. There is no big box store to go buy stuff at. There is nowhere to drive off to. We go through the days with slow walks, playtime, food, surf, and sleep. That’s about it. If … Read More

Sayulita Daze

Today I was walking along the beach with the kids, headed for a surf/swim session, when it occurred to me once again what a great life this is. I said to them, “You guys, sometimes I feel so lucky for the life we live.” They asked why, and I told … Read More

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 … Read More

What A Life

Sometimes I go through our pictures from the past few days and all I can think is, “What a life.” I mean, it’s not like it was an epic week, or anything like that, but it was just filled with so many fun moments. Day trips with VW shows and … Read More

From Maz to Sayulita

One last trip up to the lighthouse, and then it was time to say adios to Mazatlan. There seem to be more cats each time we go. Always well fed and watered by the locals that walk/run the path each day. We always come prepared as well. There are always … Read More

Carnaval in Mazatlan

We love Carnaval in Mazatlan. This is our third time being here. We missed one year when Ali’s sister decided to marry in February, but I’m not still mad at her, or holding a grudge, or anything. Lowe got us ready for the big day at his Hair Shop. We … Read More

Mazatlan Energy

Ali and Ouest had to go to Minnesota for a couple of days. The night of their return it was up to us boys to get the house cleaned up. Lowe took his job very seriously, wiping down every surface in the Airstream, including the hermit crab’s house. I always … Read More

The Other Side of the Wall

We spent a night in Laredo at a lakeside state park, before waking early and hitting the border just a few miles down the road. Nada que declarar—but that didn’t matter, they wanted to see us anyway. Fortunately, our check didn’t look like this. We opened up one cabinet door, … Read More
