Mexico – Good, Bad and Best

We were 49 days (7 weeks) in Mexico – 1 week short of our 2 month goal.   But, the #1 benefit of this lifestyle is you can pack up at anytime, particularly when there just doesn’t seem to be anything new to do.  One can only do so much relaxing…

Want to go the beach?
Nah…

Want to go for breakfast at Rosy’s?
NO – I’m tired of Mexican breakfasts…

Come on Gracie – let’s go for a walk
She wouldn’t even move from her spot on the floor. Even Gracie was ready to go!

We woke up on day 48 (Tuesday, April 5th) and said “it’s time…” And, we left the next morning!

The impetus for leaving Wednesday morning was really because of availability at an RV park at the Grand Canyon – which was next up on our destination list. We called to reserve and the only available days were Friday, Saturday and Sunday (April 8th, 9th and 10th). After that they were booked solid for a couple of weeks which was too late for us.

Some really big news…

Well, after 21 months, +23,000 miles in 3 countries, 4 provinces, 18 states – we’re done RV’ing.  We’ve seen enough.   Just one of the primary reasons for this entire adventure was to find the perfect place to retire and we did it!

With +350 days of sunshine, located on the crystal clear blue water, friendly people, cost of living to our advantage, close proximity to the USA and major cities and airports in Phoenix and Tucson, we’ve set our sights on a beautiful beach condo here in Rocky Point, Mexico.

‘Mean Machines’ in Mexico

There is no lack of ‘mean machines’ in this area. Whether they are in flight or ‘dustin’ through the desert it’s a cacophony of sound – usually loud, very loud and dusty, very dusty. And it was never more obvious than this past holiday long-weekend known as Semana Santa (Holy Week).

What? Taco in a Bag?

Except for us, the group has since departed. Some were here 3 days, others 1 week and the last couple of RV’s left after 10 days. It’s kinda lonely…

But the memories, especially the foodie memories are still with us. Eating is such a social memorable event. And, such was the case with this caravan. Not every meal was shared with the group but certainly a few unforgettable ones.

Mexico – The Reef RV Park

Located 20 minutes from all of the action in Puerto Peñasco is The Reef RV Park (SEE bottom left hand corner in red) which boasts the largest spaces in town.    After checking out the other two competitive RV parks, we agree. The picture below shows a cruise ship on the Sea of Cortez and, yes, while a dock and sea harbour are under construction it all started in 2008 and appears to be no where near completion.

Mexico – Just Another Border Crossing

By now, dear blog readers, you know what a phobia I have for border crossings. Be it Canada to USA – USA to Canada – in an airport – a car – and now a motorhome. I empty refrigerators and freezers, liquor cabinets and cupboards. I have all pet papers and passports in hand. I fret. I worry. I’m anxious. We’re going to Mexico?  Really??
