León — Day 4

Well, today was my last full day visiting my sister in León, Guanajuato Mexico.

I have had a wonderful time visiting her and doing so many things together.

Here is what we did today:

Went walking at the Parque Metropolitano de León (my first time going a 7K walk)

Lunch at a food vendor along the road — Green Place

Driving and walked around León — and saw León’s version of Love Locks Bridge

Dinner at Panteón Taurino — which cost us $660 pesos ($33.00)

They stopped at a gelato place for a light dessert.

Again, it was a little cloudy and rained. But it was another good day.

Side note: Gacebook says it’s National Selfie Day… I included mine at the end.

Thanks for going on this journey with me.


León — Day 3

What another fabulous day in León and Guanajuato with Cynthia. Today was our roadtrip day and here is where we went.

Breakfast — Cafe Zitto

Then to “Cristo Rey del Cubilete” and then lunch at one of the food booth on the way down th ed mountain.

Next stop was San Miguel de Allende to fot some shopping.

Dinner was at Trazo 1810 for Mediterranean food.

It was a long day, but very much worthwhile.

Side pictures: Daily selfie and a picture of a bottle of Delaware Punch. I was just talking to Cynthia how I wanted to get some and before we left San Miguel, I saw a bottle of it at the store.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.

León — Day 2

Had another great day in León, Guanajuato Mexico visiting my sister, Cynthia. It’s the rainy season in León and it was raining off and on, but still a fun day.

Here is what we did:

  • Shopping at the outlets (Got my Mexico Fifa jersey)
  • Lunch at one of the top Italian restaurants in León – Frascati
  • Went to Acuario del Bajío
  • Shopping at Wal-Mart
  • Driving around León

Looking forward to what tomorrow brings.

León — Day 1

Well, I had a great first day touring León, Guanajuato.

Best part was spending time with my sister, Cynthia.

Here are some of the pictures I took.

Vacation to Leòn, Mexico

Alright. Alright, Alright…

I am heading to Leòn, Mexico for a week long vacation to visit with my sister, Cynthia.

This is the farthest I’ve been in Mexico. I am looking forward to seeing what Leòn has to offer.

And I’m looking forward to spending time with my sister.

I’m going to take a lot of pictures, so be prepared to visit Leòn with me!

Walking Music

I’ve been walking lately and I have a special playlist of music I listen to.

Here is one that is on that playlist. If gives me a little pep in my step when it comes on.

Late in the Evening” is a song by American singer-songwriter Paul Simon. It was the lead single from his fifth studio album, One-Trick Pony (1980),

Port Aransas… Just What I Needed

Last night I decided I was going to take a day trip to one of my favorite places, Port Aransas on the Gulf of Mexico.

It’s about a 1.5 hour drive from where I live and it’s a nice drive to get there.

I got there around 2:00, in time for lunch at The Beach Lodge and had a Shrimp Basket. It was really tasty.

Then I found a place to park so I could do my 3-mile walk.

I started at the pier and then went walking on the beach. It was just right out, 86 degrees, sunny and blue skies.

Then I parked my car down the beach to eat my dinner. I wanted to stay until sunset, so I took another mile walk on the beach. Here are the sunset pictures I took.

It was so perfect. Walking on the beach, wind in my hair and watching the beach best.

While I was walking on the beach, I saw this that someone wrote in the sand.

I love you Mom. What a perfect way to end my day on the beach.

I will be heading back here soon. I’m not going to wait for the right time, because there is never a right time to do anything. You just have to do it!
