We're home for now....

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!

 
We arrived home Friday evening, catching the 5:45 Duke Point Ferry from Tsawwassen. What really worked out great is that we were able to watch most of the opening ceremonies for the 2010 Winter Olympics on the ferry with all the other passengers. I think it was much more fun watching it that way than at home.

We stayed at the Belmar in Mazatlan in Old Town... the no hassle zone.

After leaving Ajijic on February  6th, we drove to Mazatlan, arriving in lots of time to go for a swim (very nice!), then on to Guaymas (back to the same hotel) and the third and forth nights on the road we spent with 
Ken and Verna in their 5th wheel at Lost Dutchman State Park in Apache Junction AZ. Tuesday we took a drive through Tonto National Park, beautiful scenery on a twisty dirt road, ending up at Tonto National Monument, home to the Salado People from over 700 years ago. A trip well worth the effort! Wednesday night, Bakersfield CA, Thursday night, Roseburg OR and then Friday night our own bed! Fast traveling, but we just decided we wanted to get home. The trip home from Ajijic took us 6 days, almost 5000 km and about $162 US for gas.

These are the very pleasant and marvelous destinations with all the fresh air and tranquil and serene environment which makes a difference in a hustle and bustle urban living in one hand and a soothing, peaceful and unruffled life style on the other hand as well.
