I have been looking forward to getting to Zihuatenajo for a long time. We came here about 6 years ago for our friends’ wedding (hi Kaj and Karli!). I was pregnant and had just been through a miserable pregnancy-related discrimination issue at my work. It was great to get away, see old friends and realize that my soon-to-be-born baby was my new priority and not my stupid job. After that vacation, I went back and quit.
Bode loves hearing about being here in-utero. Stories like he’d almost been named Yoli after a local soft drink, an awesome pizza place here and the ocean water was the temperature of a bathtub. And, he’d already been surfing before he was even born!
So, after several wonderful days in La Saladita, we ventured on to Zihau. We were less than impressed with the camping options in town. Since we needed some internet time (and some sand removal,) I convinced Jason to stay at the hotel we had stayed at before. Of course, that was back when we had 2 incomes and didn’t live in a van. Luckily, it’s off-season here, and they had a 2 for 1 promotion. So we spent a fabulous few days in Zihau and as much as I’d love to tell you all the great touristy things we did, I can’t. We mostly stayed in our ‘luxurious’ hotel room and at their very nice pool. I say luxurious because it had air conditioning. And, it’s on the beach and with a kitchen… and INTERNET! Happy Mother’s Day to ME!
We lazed around our hotel room and caught up on a few things. It was really nice to be somewhere somewhat familiar for a while.
Bode finally got some goggles and can now swim half-way across the pool. He’s also quite good at the ole’ cannonball and he’s starting to dive.
We tried to go to the much-loved pizza place (where 6 of us ordered 8 pizzas last time) but it was closed. I’m still mourning.
But, I can’t sleep at night because there is INTERNET. Since no one Facebook’s in the middle of the night, I’m all caught up.
