It's Feline Friday October 31, 2014
Tienda dogs in Puerto Vallarta
I have yet to see one cat since we arrived
in Mexico. I think it's these ferocious
guard dogs that keep them out of sight!
Have a great weekend and tell Steve
thanks for Feline Friday!

Yesterday the Botanical Garden and Today's Bus Ride to Where.....?
Lots to see and do....
First we went to a Botanical Garden..
Botanical Gardens near Tuito
Lily Pads and Blossoms
That's a Philodendron!?
Yep- they grow 'em big in the tropics!
Los Horcones River
Close up- but not sure what plant this is....
Melon loving birds....
Hummingbird staking out his territory..
Now we are on the bus-
headed towards another adventure...
Fields of Agave for tequila...
After a calm bus ride we have a
matador for taxi driver!
Check out the poised thumb for horn honking!
Actually he was a good driver.
Russell with paper mache
Day of the Dead Catrina...
Yes- we are in Guadalajara...
intense city of .
At least that is what the taxi guy said...
And with gorgeous historical buildings...
That's it for now!

What little town did we go to?
Yesterday we took an hour long bus ride
to a little town we once stayed in for two weeks.
It appeared to us that time had been kind
to this still peaceful place.
The bus driver texted almost the whole way...
Yep- even on the curvy two lane road.....
Having a fabulous lunch with a view....
Surfing is very popular here.....
Some vendors have umbrellas
to keep the sun off of them.....
Here's a place for sale-
beach front and ready to fix up.
It used to be called Papa's Palapas....
Let the fiestas begin!
A very happy dog!
Last time we were here
( about 14 years ago)
there were lots of homeless and hungry dogs.
Did not see one- obviously the "Spay and neuter"
program that had just been started has helped.
Back at our "base camp".
This is a view from the roof top pool ...

Six Words with Sunday Shadows October 25-26, 2014
Mt Shasta October 24, 2014
Torrential rain ...wind gusts 85 mph!!
I would say that winter is just around the corner.
Mt Shasta is finally getting snow and
may it snow til next May! That might alleviate
the drought conditions we have endured
past three years!
Point your umbrella
for 6 Words
and throw a snowball
for Shadow Shots!
And for heavens sake go find your snow shovel!
