Feb 28 – We got up early today, so we could walk into the Huatulco National Forest before the sun got too high in the sky. The official entrance to the park is miles away, where cruise ships stop to let people experience the beach. We are not near that entrance, nor do we want to get anywhere near the cruisers, so we will be satisfied with a morning walk.
This is the dry season, and the road was arid and dusty.
I’m sure this culvert will have water in it after the spring rains.
There sure are a lot of noisy birds here. We are not birders, so I can’t tell you the names of the birds we saw, but they are unlike any we’ve seen at home.
We’ve settled into a lazy pattern here: a Jim-cooked omelet and coffee for breakfast on the veranda, a morning walk, a Jim-cooked lunch in the shade, an afternoon swim, then supper down on the beach. Seafood prices here are very reasonable. Folks get a table, order food, take a dip in the water and let their children play, then get out to eat. The evening temperature is ideal, though if you are not alert, scavenger birds swoop right down and help themselves to your food!
A full moon, a warm breeze, native music and a margarita- what could be better?
