Puerto Music Fest at the Split Coconut on the beach – three bands playing Led Zepellin and Rolling Stones to Rockabilly. It was very interesting (and amusing!) to hear American songs sung by Mexicans…. 🙂

We were enjoying breakfast this morning when a 4.8 earthquake hit – centered about 30 miles away. It was very short, but most of the people in the restaurant were half way out of the building in the first 5 seconds. I am so glad we weren’t in our hotel – our room is directly under the swimming pool!
This has been a week of lazy days enjoying the beach, napping and eating at the numerous restaurants on the beach….
Sitting at our table, different people came by selling their wares…. hard way to make a living!
There are just two or three English channels on tv…. watching Aljazeera News from London is interesting, especially when Jared is the newscaster – ha ha!

Running on this beach every morning has been so good…. as I ran this morning, I noticed all the footprints of other people walking and running along the beach. Everyone seems to walk in the same pathway, churning up the sand – but then the waves come and the footprints disappear, leaving a perfect beautiful sandy beach. Isn’t that just like what Jesus does with our sin? Our lives get all churned up with sin and when we turn to Him, He washes it all away…. completely!
Today, we went back to Dr. Jesus to get our crowns – he did a great job, all for about 1/4 the cost in the U.S.
Then back to the mercado today…..
We found El Pollo Loco! Two very motivated women, Sherry and Maria, spent time in the US – working and saving their money – and returned to Mexico to buy this property, build this building and open their own restaurant in one section, renting out the other spaces. Their restaurant has been open only two months. The food was delicious and their kitchen was so neat and clean. We enjoyed eating in their restaurant two different times. Such precious ladies! 🙂
