A Day in La Barra de Potosi

Our vacation wouldn't be complete without
a trip to Barra la Potosi!

We took the bus from downtown Zihuatanejo to Los Ochotes

Passing by the market places selling oranges-

Selling chickens for tonights dinner....

and I think this is where masa is sold?
Or maybe cheese?

After getting to Los Ochotes we took a bumpy ride
in the back of a pickup to la Barra.....lots of families were
already here enjoying the water...

Judy and Russell are on their shell phones....

La Senora was very busy today cooking ....

Prep area in the immaculate kitchen

After lunch some of us went swimming....

Others enjoyed the hammocks...

At the end of the day we enjoyed
the beautiful sunset back in Zihuatanejo....

And the release of the baby turtles
which I always find so amazing.
Today we fly home-back to reality
and the beginning of winter weather...


  1. At least you had a brief stop in paradise.

  2. The trouble with vacations is they get to being over at some point, although i'm glad you had a great time.

    Shell phones! Cute!

  3. Shell phones! Sunshine! Release of baby turtles! Heaven on Earth!

    Don't lose your vacation the minute you get home. Hold onto it.
