Las Hadas, Manzanillo
Ahhhhh what a great place to be blogging from. The water is crystal clear in this beautiful spot, and I have not had one mosquito take its breakfast, lunch or dinner from me yet. While provisioning at the Comercial Mexicana, I even found an eggplant!!! ( A rare find ) Which quickly became Baba Ghanoush. I have to say, we have not gone hungry while in Mexico, but the produce section of the markets does leave me missing Whole Foods and my local Thursday Farmers market. We have it soooo good in the U.S. From what I hear the provisioning only gets worse as we head further south. That is hard for me to believe, since it is already slim pickens.....I can find romaine lettuce, tomatoes, limes, onion, garlic, spinach, zuchini, watermelon, papaya, mango, something like an orange/lemon, avacados, and peppers. Celantro is hit and miss. Good thing my Basil plant is still thriving!!!! So we are getting by, but man-o-man do I miss Jessica's Kale salad. What was a staple is now a non-entity in our life. Along with the beloved sweet pea sprouts. I know - looking at these pictures you must really feel sorry for us. The trade off is quality food folks - which I can give up for two years to experience this for sure. Photos include the BEAUTIFUL EGGPLANT ( never take these for granted people!) views from our boat, A few shots of Las Hadas, a sweet shot of Santosha from a palm filled walk way, Jack holding a dead crab, and lots of him playing with his Birthday present ( full dive gear) He is not certified yet, but we hope to do that in Ixtapa. The snoreling/diving is amazing here, AND.....no jelly fish in this anchorage!!! Every where we have been so far in Mexico has been plagued with these critters. We will stay here another day and then head to Ixtapa where we will spend Christmas. Alex and Blake will join us on the 20th, and we are all so excited for their arrival!
