Big Day Out


The past few days Lowe has been wiggling his first loose tooth around in his mouth. He’s been a little nervous about the whole thing, but excited at the same time. For the most part, he wouldn’t even show me the tooth, fearing that I’d reach in with my grubby … 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

Saying Goodbye

Brownie #2 got out of surgery and spent the next couple of days hanging out with us. She still had “the scent” on her, so our job became keeping the boys of the neighborhood off of her while she healed up. We spent a night with Xochitl, and her parents … Read More

The Rhythm of Sayulita

We got home from our little mountain road trip, and we were happy to once again be in the sun with bare feet. Whenever we’re away it is amazing just how much we all miss our own home, and our own beds. Or maybe it’s not so amazing at all. … Read More

Another Adventurous Year Ahead

Our time in Sayulita is slowly drawing to a close. New year, new places, new adventures to be had. But not right away. We’ve still got a few familiar old haunts to visit. We’re all starting to feel that pull though. Actually, Lowe has been asking for weeks, “When are … Read More

Surf and Mutts

The waves have been all over the place lately. Too big and sloppy one day, too small the next. We still manage to catch some on the big days, but it’s a ton more work for me pushing Ouest out through the constant rush of white water and the rips. … Read More

Christmas 2015

Ouest received an unexpected invitation the other day to play the Virgin Mary in some sort of production—an invitation she eagerly accepted, despite having no idea who the Virgin Mary is, or what the play might entail. Ali and I are always amazed at her moxy. Ali says when she … Read More
