Lazy day in Huatabampito

While we have pretty good unlimited Internet I thought I'd post a little video of why we won't be going back to Aticama unless or until the new toll road is open. This road just shakes the sh!t out of the Alfa 

So any way yesterday we had an absolutely do nothing day all day. I was up at 4:55 to stay. What is with that? Finally it got light enough to take these pictures of the full moon setting - behind the palm trees of course. 

 When it got a lot lighter I checked out the front window. There is the scout seagull waiting to hear the door open and Bill to come out. As soon as he sees Bill he takes to the air screeching. And in seconds the rest are here.
 As I said did nothing all day so nothing to write about really. At 9:00 a.m. I went back to bed and took a 2 1/2 hour nap. Late afternoon we did take a little (about 50 yard) walk on the beach. Picked up this guy. Reminds me of a bouquet of flowers. 
 There were a few clouds out so thought maybe we'd have one of Huatabampito's magnificent sunsets. 
Just the reflection in the Alfa's window. Always need to get one of these shots. 
 Getting a little bit nicer but still not up to par for here. The wind had really picked up by now too and it was getting cold out. Imagine that cold. 
About the best shot
 This morning I got up at 5 after 5 and decided to heck with that and went back to bed. Next time I'll stay up. Weird dreams and restless sleep. Got up more tired then when I went back to bed.
Opened the shades to this scene - They are all there this morning. Sitting and waiting. When they hear the door open some take to flight. When they see Bill step out they are all in the air heading towards him. "Here comes that crazy Gringo with the tortillas!"
Ran out of tortillas will have to make a grocery store run later. 


  1. OMG scary road!!! Doesn't look very good to drive on. Bill is a fantastic driver. Your sunset photos are awesome. Makes the drive seem worthwhile.

  2. Thank you for all the books - have hardly made a dent in them.

    1. You are very welcome. Such a small way to say thank you for allowing others to enjoy your travels. Hope to meet you sometime in the future.
