Beached!  More Adventures and Misadventures of a Reforming Compulsive Blogger.

Busy day.  A few fish, a few fisherman and a few pelicans returned to a beach that has been empty of all of them for the past few days.  New neighbors moved in upstairs–Pat and Nancy, reformed English teachers from Michigan.  A bit of beach combing, then talked to Angie, local beach jewelry vendor, who is going to macrame some sample bracelet cords for me to see if they’d work better than the wire and wax-linen wrapped button bracelets I’ve been making.  Once Angie left, Candace came with sewing machine to make some cloth prototypes for bracelets.  We tinkered all afternoon and think we’ve come up with a design.  I’ll sew on buttons tonight to see how they work but for now I’m going for a beach dinner up the beach and then to either a storytelling or salsa dancing…Undecided at this point.  All those buttons so neatly sorted on the table above were mixed up in three big bins when I started out to sort them last night.  Finally finished at 4:30 in the morning.  It is called obsessive compulsive!

      By time dinner was over I was too tired for reading or dancing so came home. We had a lovely talk with the chef, though…a woman named Veronica who has recently opened the Bamboo Sunset on the cliffs over the beach and ocean. Beautiful view. Wonderful food. But, I only had 4 hours sleep last night so I ran out of steam.

      I am on the coast (obviously) above Manzanillo–about 1/2 hour north of Melaque and Barra de Navidad and a couple of hours below Puerto Vallarta. The name of the village is La Manzanilla. The closest airport is Manzanillo but many also fly into Puerto Vallarta. It is more laid back and smaller than Manzanillo or Puerto Vallarta, but has a number of Canadians and some U.S. citizens who spend the winter months here. It is really too hot to stay here in the summer as most places have no air conditioning so many places shut down in the summer. Lovely weather so far this year.

    Blistering bunions! I would love to be in the button bin by the balmy beach, breaking bread and making beguiling bracelets – beautiful!
    Where did all those buzzing b’s come from, I wonder?
