Cee’s Which Way Challenge, Mar 10, 2017

Do you see the hundreds of starlings lined up on the wires trying to figure out which way to go?

Along the Road


This is the road that leads from the main highway into the little beach town where I spend time each year.  I’m presently here for three months.  And this is one of the first things I see along the way:

It’s the “Jesus, Mary and Joseph” Authentic Mexican Kitchen Restaurant.  Heavenly food, I’m sure.

The way to go may not be perfectly clear, but the way not to go should be!



Narrow Illusion


In the wide prairies of South Dakota, the only narrow to be found is the narrowing of the road in the distance.  It is a bit like perpetually driving into an invisible tunnel.

No Free Ride in Mexico: Cuota Road to the Beach

The “Freeways” of Mexico are anything but free.  Yes, there are free roads, but they are generally twisty, two-lane and frequently not too safe.  In Mexico, what we think of as freeways are actually toll (or cuota – pronounced “quota”) roads.  They are not cheap, but they are multi-laned, divided, well-maintained and generally safe, although this trip presented one unique potential danger not often found in the U.S. unless you happen to live in the northwest.
