OK - So I`m gone and here

Sorry not to have updated but you know how it goes

I left Seattle the 1st of April, three days to San Diego, stayed in SD for three days, crossed the border and made La Paz in three days. Was going to camp and see more of Baja but nobody else was on the beaches and I felt like I wanted people around for information and company.

Took the ferry (Baja Ferries) to Topolombabpo and had to overnight in Los Moches. A five hour drive from there to Mazatlan the next morning. Stayed in Mazatlan for a week and a half to check it out and recover from a sinus infection. One day south to Chamala staying over night and then one day south to Puerto Vallarta where I stayed for two days and visited with JR.

Mazatlan was busy, rather arid and no easy access to Spanish schools so I decided to head further south. Vallarta is prettier but also busy so I decided to head for Melaque, my old home town.

Been very happy here so far, found a Spanish tutor and kayaking is good. May head inland to the highlands at the end of June.

Have not seen rain since I left Seattle so must be due for a good one sometime soon.

Take care ya`ll
The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
