Mas calor. More heat.
I use the heat to solder in the jewels. The plotting, planning brain dies in the heat. My feeling self does not. I hold the precious bits of the year and set them now, deep, inside me.
My departure date is set now, too, though more tropical storms may change that. In a blink of an eye (several weeks), I will walk into an old home of mine, one far different from the adobe house where I've been living.
I have always felt it ...
... the fine salt spray that is a constant on these shores? the almost invisible clouds of dust that stream everywhere and get ground into places you would not dream? the melting force of Baja summer sun? -- is destroying the UV coating on my prescription glasses. I look a bit like I have relaxed so much that I cannot even be bothered to wipe them clean anymore.
There are many things that we need less, or do not need at all here. No socks. No sweaters. No rain ...

There was ...
... and tuna steak combo and Patti had spaghetti with jumbo shrimp, olives, fresh tomatoes and basil. Dessert was blueberry cheesecake. We each enjoyed a glass of very good wine. We paid more for this dinner than we have paid anywhere else in Mexico but it was still less than what we would have paid for the same meal in Seattle or Napa. We left stuffed to the gills and with no complaints!
Monday saw us leaving Puerto Escondido with the bow pointed south towards La Paz.
