Based in Loreto, Baja California Sur, Mexico. I am fascinated with explorations of culinary delights; beautiful scenery, authentic and genuine interactions with interesting people. To Continue Learning and Listening is to be the BEST of yourself, and then ... just maybe a positive influence to others. Thank you to all those that have supported my journey to this destination. Tread Lightly, Life Fully, Be In the Moment .... The Joy Will Come!
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
Expansion of our Loreto Bay Homes Rental Program!The next few weeks will see hundreds of visitors descend upon our
tranquil seaside village. Families of
all ages are coming from across Canada with the popular nonstop WestJet
Airlines flight from Calgary, Alberta.Mexican families are coming by car or air with Aereo Calafia from Tijuana; or
flying to La Paz from all over Mexico and driving up to the beach communities
of Loreto.Semana Santa (Easter Holy
Week) is the largest travel vacation week of the year where families get
together to enjoy the sun, water and good food and fun.We have people coming from USA, Monterrey, Mexico
City and Cabo San Lucas to discover Loreto for the first time.It is all very exciting.
Loreto Bay Homes started our Rental Program in 2010, in an
effort to help owners recover some of their expenses.In those days it was difficult to rent a
home for $50 a night; or $500 a month.NOW we are renting our good 2 bedroom Chicas for $225 US a night; and
may not consider …
Good Morning from Loreto! Spring is in the air, and it is another beautiful day in
Loreto.I was out for an early morning
walk seeking writer's inspiration Wandering through the residential areas of Aqua Viva (AV) certainly gave
me an appreciation of how far we have come in only a few years since that fateful day of June 6, 2009.
It always seems slower to those that are living the progress
every day, and we tend to focus too much on the TO DO items left unfinished I was happy to take the time to stop and
soak in the beauty and relish in the accomplishments of the AV Owners and the
business people that helped them to obtain the dream and life in paradise.
While I was neck deep in our own issues in Founders
Neighborhood (FN), I would often have AV friends come asking my opinion on what
they should do, and if I thought it was worth the further investment.I always encouraged them to hang in there and
said that AV would one day be the premier place to live in Loreto Bay.My favorite quote…
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
