Getting together with friends

Last week we were able to meet our friends Gary and Sandy from Victoria, B.C. down here in Manzanillo. They had a place they had rented with his sister and brother inlaw about 30 minutes south of here. It was a real treat to be able to catch up with people we had shared a very cold and wet experience with, and now be able to share the warmth of Mexico too. As a real treat we were able to stay on land at their home for a very enjoyable and non rocky night. Part of the night was spent at a neighbors house and drinking Margaritas and telling stories and philosophies . Ken and Carol and daughter were gracious hosts. Both homes were beach front homes with large open air living spaces. We also went to lunch on the beach in the nearby local town where I experienced the drink called Coco Loco. This is a fresh green coconut filled with rum, gin, vodka, and tequila. One was enough, but of course we followed it up with other delights.
Overall we had a great two days. It was nice to see how Mexican life onshore isn't a lot different than cruising.
Thanks Gary, Sandy, Larry, Lorraine, Ken, and Carol it was a great time
