We arrive at the Posada (http://www.raqueros.com/accommodations/location-and-grounds/) at 15:00, just in time for beer and a swim.
The little pieces of land between the road and the see, are blooming and beautiful.
We are outside of the tourist season, but the weather is nice and the sea is good. I guess the season -Nov to Febr.- is for northerlings that are fleeing the cold from winter:)
Opposite the road the development is not going so fast (read: got stuck) and forrest is taking back land that it lost to new owners.
We see some smoke in the distance from fires: farmers clearing bush to plant crops (I will not make a western hemispheric political statement here. These farmers need this land to survive. So just as I am not killing bugs here, or whatever animals, to not break the equalibrium of nature, I think this is something that Mexico may take care of, all in good time)
The sea is wild on this side.
When I am sitting on a chair on the beach, I see this crazy bugs moving, no they are shells, no they are hermit crabs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermit_crab), hundreds of them!
The forrest may be tamed, but the shore really isn't. Iguana's live in the garden, gecko's live in the house, hummingbirds are in the trees, turtoises lay their eggs in the sand of the beach and bats are flying around after sunset.
This is nature still in this part not so long ago culturised.
We are in Troncones for a family gathering (of the American relatives from my wife's side), people almost unknown to me (us!).
We have to get acuainted with all the new names and faces (all lovely people, not because they are family) and to the way things go in this beautiful country.
In the evening (it is custumary that) we sit at the beach to watch the sunset. There is almost no wind, and though the sky is beautiful, the clouds prevent us from seing the sun set. Soon it is dark (with us it is still light untill 22:30 end of June) and we go to bed early.
Both of us recall the trip so far. No trip has gone as smooth as this one.
