Winter in Bucerias 2014/15

2015 was an incredible year. Unique in its uniqueness. With our two cats Marbles and Shasta in hand, we flew down to Mexico after Halloween. Hubby constructed a chicken wire fence around our casa to protect our cats the tiny little geckos from harm. Later, we welcomed the New Year at a poolside fiesta in Los Arroyos Verdes, a botanic garden compound east of Bucerias.

We met wonderful people in 2015; friends for life, I suspect.

We visited the historical and enchanting village of San Sebastian Oeste deep in the Sierra Madre Occidental in Jalisco. Their beautiful church is dedicated to the town’s patron, San Sebastian. It was built in the 1660 and renovated in 1868 after an earthquake.

Three of my amigas and I spent two days in Guadalajara.

Shopped ’til we dropped!

Bucerias, Nayarit, a small town north of Puerto Vallarta, is heaven on earth.

People say, “Must be nice,” then give me that look when I tell them we spend our winters in Mexico. I know how opulent it sounds to them, but honestly, it’s more economical than wintering in Canada. Especial for retirees.

That must make BC Hydro very sad.

The Mexican people are generous, kind, and welcoming. Nothing is more important than family.

Feel very blessed spending my winters in this beautiful country.

 … ended the first 6 months of 2015 by jumping the pond and visiting our youngest and his family in the UK. More on that later …

Feliz Navidad, mis amigos!
