Sand Between My Toes

2017-08-18_06-42-01_454 (1)Two weeks ago we took off for Puerto Penasco Mexico. Selfish with the beach we travel just as school starts and before a major holiday it is a guarantee that we will encounter few other travelers.  2017-08-18_14-14-28_155We set up our RV by 11am and head to town to a favorite restaurant.  The tide is extremely high and we enjoy hours of great food and drink with an unmatched view.

Long walks on the beach with the tide out seem to be mandatory as we are drawn to explore tide pools and ever-changing sand.

The owner says 30 years and some of the items seem to have been here just that long.2017-08-20_10-01-42_466.jpegThe view from the 3rd story after climbing a rickety stair/ladder is spectacular.

Sometimes the shopping comes to you.

Don’t forget to stop and get a fresh coco…

It’s even an adventure at the grocery store with entirely different cuts of meat, giant watermelon, and the biggest bag of Cheetos ever.

Moments later we are back on the beach with our feet up, cool drink in hand watching the beach activities of the day.  The importance of doing nothing to refresh one’s soul. All  I need is this sand between my toes.
