Tonala Tianguis in Guadalajara

Tonala Tianguis in Guadalajara

Remember how I said I love the Tonala Friday market?  Most Lake Chapalans balk at the idea of going to Tonala on the busiest day of the week…but we LOVE it! So, with our friend, Nicholle, from Alaska in tow…we first headed out and did a quick sweep of Tlaquepaque before taking her to the Tonala market!  The pigeons in Tlaquepaque were again out in full force… We found some grub to eat.  It was a rare treat to be served...

Colors of Ajijic Mexico

Colors of Ajijic Mexico

In early February we were blessed to have another friend visit from Alaska!  Another fellow business owner from Skagway joined us for about a week, and we enjoyed showing her the interior of Mexico for the first time (she’s only been to beach towns).  Nicholle is a beautiful blonde that enjoys traveling as much as we do! We watched some fishermen on Lake Chapala… Also a typical sight off the Ajijc...

Ethan was entertained for a loooong time watching a local...

My father-in-law’s sandals started falling apart at the beach, so we visited a shoe repair shop and had the thick rubber sole sewed right back onto the leather. The cost? Less than...

Enjoying Melaque Mexico

Enjoying Melaque Mexico

The next day, we enjoyed relaxing in Melaque, a quiet little beach town that deserves more tourism than it actually gets. I would take this place over Puerto Vallerta or Manzanillo any day! Our hotel was located right on the beach, and we managed to get a pretty good deal for a two bedroom place with a small living room and kitchen. They had a few different pools, but we stuck to the one that was more shallow, so the...

Barra de Navidad

Barra de Navidad

After swimming all day at arguably one of the best Western beaches in Mexico, we showered up and made a bee line into the neighboring town of Barra de Navidad. We grabbed some grub at a restaurant, and I tried out a portable high chair that I purchased on Etsy. It wraps around most chairs and creates a little cradle seat for them, so they can’t wiggle away while eating. Ethan never stays put in Mexican-style high chairs, so wrapping...
