Tosia’s View: Balanced View of Jaltemba Bay

I collect rocks. Big ones, small ones, sparkly ones, bizarre looking ones. Shapes and colours catch my eye, then something in my head says “one more, there’s room for one more!” And they somehow find their way to my home. The gardens are bordered with them, the pool was built with many truck loads of them obtained from a local dry river bed, the fruit trees in our yard are ringed with them, and while our casa’s staircase doesn’t have a handrail, there are rocks lining the edge of each step.

Now, my latest rock phase has me taking some quiet time every couple of days and balancing one rock on another. Just for the fun of it, just to say, “I did that!” These four rocks live on my deck, and my deck overlooks Jaltemba Bay. Bliss.

      Hi, sorry about that... we drive south from Ontario Canada, so we cross the Border into Mexico via Laredo, Texas. We try to take the toll roads (cuota) as they are usually in very good repair, bypass towns and cities, we can drive fast on them, and the "Green Angels" who are Mexico's version of roadside assistance, are generally around for any problems. We find these roads safe and we can drive through Mexico in one day - about 15 hours. We travel with animals and we just like to get through it as quick as possible because of the stress of travelling on them. I hope this gives you some of the information you are looking for. Safe travels, Tosia Polomski-Archer
