Back to reality...sadly

Well after nearly a month in paradise I guess it had to end. Just for now though as we have every intention to find a long term residence here upon retirement! The last week was great fun having our friends there with us but we missed Tommy when he left on Sunday. We finished our time though with some great diving and some great food. Our favorite island restaurant by far is Wild Mango's - which our cutie little island pooch is named after. We also tried some new things like a trip to the Palapa bar north of the bridge which was great and a cool local hangout called Waruguma which was a no frills atmosphere with some killer food including an enormous lobster burrito and ladies making Papusa's outside for $1.25 US each! Wish I'd taken pics of that but Waruguma is a place where we will return. We ended our week with some tropical stormy weather but that didn't dampen our spirits or our desire to stay. If it weren't for Tommy and the dogs and Hazel and how much we missed them we might never have come back! Back to reality now and a lost bag courtesy of Delta who seemingly doesn't care enough to really look for it. Hope to see it by week's end when my family arrives for a visit!

Lotsa hair... but one hour later...
