Les and I have been talking it over, and don’t really feel certain that the Chapala area is where we want to first settle down. Neither of us was very impressed with it – though we did visit it at what might have been the worst time of the year, weatherwise, it was April and very dry, the rains hadn’t come yet to make it beautiful.

So we’re thinking we should make a run down the pacific coast, and see what that has to offer.  Mazatlan, The Riviera Nayarit. That area might be a little cheaper than the Chapala area, and both of us have always liked the ocean.

The guidebooks say that the pacific towns get ‘swealteringly hot and humid’ in the summer, but we’ll see what that’s like. Heck, I live in Texas. It may not get to 90 degrees and 90% humidity – but 105 and 70-80% might be even worse. Besides, I lived in Hawaii for two years, where it’s hot and humid in the summer, and on a desert island off the coast of Africa. It wasn’t humid – but it was HOT!

So I might take a run down the coast in August and see what it’s like at it’s hottest. Then we can make a decision between the two. We’re on a budget, so cost might make a difference.

We’re getting our marriage license tomorrow!!!

Pretty exciting, huh??? we’re going down to the Dallas Records Building, forking over our $71 (cash only please, no checks or money orders), showing proof that we’re over 18 (they could just look at us you know) and getting the papers to make it all legal.

Moving Forward

We haven’t posted in a while. This doesn’t mean we aren’t still working on the move to Mexico. We are. However life keeps moving forward at an amazing speed. We are continuing to read our books, visit all the wonderful and relevant websites regarding others who have moved or are planning to move to Mexico. One of the wonderful things about this whole experience is the realization we are not alone. Others have dreamed of it. Some have actually done it. How wonderfully encouraging and life sustaining to know the path we tread is filled with like souls making and planning to make the same journey! It will happen. Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told: “I am with you kid. Let’s go.” ~Maya Angelou
