A New Computer For Me, in Chacala

Bill and Mary arrived today for their third winter visit to Chacala. They were accompanied by their precious dog, Spike/Clavo. As a bi-lingual dog, he responds his name in both languages. They were also accompanied by my new computer. They picked it up in Olympia, and drove it down. Pretty good service. I am really happy.I am all hooked up and on-line from home. But tomorrow I am going to have to figure out how to have both my wonderful neighbor family's new computer plus my computer both hooked up to the internet. Using their Telmex phone line and one modem. And the computers are about 125 feet apart. I think I am going to end up interneting from their laundry palapa, at least for now. But we'll see.Anyway, I am too tired to write. So I am going to download photos from my camera, and go to bed. It's New Years Eve and I have a couple of appealing invitations, but I am tooooo tired. Long long day.My genius son managed to transfer everything from my self-destructed computer to this one, so I am really content and feeling good. Hope everyone else is too.

The photo below is what Chacala's beach (and probably every beach in Mexico) looks like during the week between Christmas and New Years. The two weeks around Palm and Easter Sundays, that is, Semana Santa.

Andee, Tus fotos son muy bonitas! Really, I so enjoy them and thank you for sharing them. I said it before and I'll say it again: you have a great eye. Happy 2008 to you! Coming to Chacala in 2007 was one of the highlights of our year and we're glad we met you. Keep up the great blog. Love, Karen

Andee --


I agree with Karen. These photographs are fantastic. Your eye for shape, texture, and color is a perfect artistic mix. What a joy it must be for you to have a computer back in your hands.

Yes, so nice to see your photos again It was nice to meet you, and greet your new computer too!

Also, that beach looks very familiar--that is J's floaty ring in the lower left hand side of the picture. The photo proves we were in the same place at the same time!

I'll post about Chacala soon.
