Based in Loreto, Baja California Sur, MEXICO. I am fascinated with explorations of culinary delights; beautiful scenery, authentic interactions with genuine people.
Every week there is an new adventure or experience to create a sweet memory. Life is Good!

Where In The World Is Nellie??
Nellie was last seen working at the office on Dais de Trabajo, Mexican Labor Day Holiday ... and then she's gone.... MIA
Here's a hint... she is 4400 miles away from Loreto.
Where has the past 10 years gone??? I was looking back at my
blog which originally started July 1st, 2006, when I packed up my bags and
started my journey towards a new life in Loreto.Looking back I have to ask myself "What Was I Thinking??!!"Truly a leap of faith into the unknown
abyss of desert in a foreign land.Those 3 years from July 2006 to June 2009,
were indeed my Mid Life Crisis.
experienced more highs by meeting and partying with the most interesting people
who became lifelong friends.I started 5
businesses which included a Sushi Bar, B&B Hotel, Fishing Charters, Real
Estate and Professional Services.By the
end of 2007, all the businesses were in the black and I had 14 employees.By the end of 2008 (after the global crash),
I had zero businesses and no employees.It was a wild ride and the Highs out numbered the Lows.
July 1, 2009, I started my Property Management
business. I was lucky to have Veronica
Salgado as my right hand person; Taco as the maintenance man,…
Hello ... I'm still here in Loreto! It has been over 6 years since I blogged about my adventures
in Loreto.When people ask why I stopped
writing, I simply said that I was too busy living ... or more accurately trying
to dig myself and Loreto out from under the collapse and ruin that the
"Perfect Storm" of global recession left us.I never considered returning to Canada or
the USA for stable and secure employment.It was never an option to leave so many broken dreams and hopelessness
behind when I was such an integral part of creating the virtual community that
become my home.So with amazing support
of my Mexican and Loreto Bay friends, we rolled up our sleeves and went to work
on the road to recovery.It has been
another amazing journey that provided me with more life lessons that one person
should ever have to learn.Everyday
there were experiences where I would have to improve my skills of patience,
empathy, compassion, negotiation, compromise, and most importantly
Happy Easter from Loreto, Mexico
This week is Semana Santa or Holy Week; which is traditionally the most travelled weekend of the year in Mexico. Families pack up their coolers, tents, food & drinks, as well as grandparents, cousins, teenagers and babies all head to the beach to spend a wonderful 3 or 4 days enjoying the surf, sand and sun.
I also took time off and there is no greater beauty of Loreto than from the water. I wanted to share the following photos with you of the Islands of Loreto and how far our developments have come in just a few short years.
Have a great week and we look forward to seeing you soon! "Cherish your human connections - your relationships with friends and family"Barbara Bush
