April Weekend Road Trip…

Cuz sometimes you just need to get outta town. You all know we like hanging with our kids in the Peg and checking out new places. We feel real fortunate that our kids actually like to hang with us. At least that’s what they say…😉 You can almost feel the excitement in their faces from…

The Trip Home

Wow, been home few days now and still trying to get the energy back. For our last night in Nica, our new found friends, old friends and us got together for supper at the Sea Salt restaurant at the resort.Much tom foolery, stories and laughs were shared around the table on another warm night. A…

The time is nigh…to go back home…

Our time here is coming to an end. As usual, it’s flown by. Not as many excursions, but some relaxing time by the pool and meeting new friends. Couple of trips to little markets and getting more of a taste of what it’s like to live here.If or should I say, when we return, we…

What day is it again?…I’m losing track of time here…

I know this is getting repetitive, but it bears repeating, we woke up to another beautiful day here in Gran Pacifica. Sunshine and warm breezes greet us every morning. Our 760 sq ft one bedroom condo is all the space we could possibly need on this trip with just the two of us.Kitchen, laundry, living…

Quick trip to Masa Chapa Friday Oct 14

So…yesterday, woke up early as per usual, made breakfast, coffee and was sitting down to go through the previous night’s thunderstorm pics….when….knock at the door. Kinda early but what the heck.Turns out Patrick’s son Spencer was taking our Canuck friends to Masa Chapa, a fishing village close to here, and someone had dropped out. Did…

Thanksgiving in Nicaragua – Day 5 Oct 13

There’s a stark difference between this trip so far and our previous ones. Mostly it’s because I haven’t scheduled a bunch of outings. So it’s more about staying around the resort and taking the odd outing when others are going. A little more relaxed with a sprinkling of spontaneity. It continues to be mostly sunny…

Thanksgiving in Nicaragua – Day 3

Good morning, yesterday was a bit of a reprieve in that the humidity hovered around 70% instead of 90% the day before. We’re being a little more careful about being inside during the heat of the day this time around. Or in the pool. Yesterday morning we ventured out on a short walk along the…

Thanksgiving in Nicaragua – Day 4

Day 4 and no ill effects yet, if you know what I mean. I’m starting to think staying out of the mid day heat and cooking in the condo is contributing so far….fingers crossed.Not saying anything wrong about the restaurant here. Far from it. They serve very good food. Friendly servers. All in all a…

Thanksgiving in Gran Pacifica Day 2

Today is a down day. Catching up, napping and getting the energy levels up. Had breakfast with Patrick and his son Spencer this morning. It was good to get caught up again. One of the reasons we came this time of year is because it’s rainy season. Now when I say rainy season, it rains…
