We love the garden. Gary for looking at it through the windows of the house; me for wandering and marveling at all the plants and life in it. We have this large cactus that is a focal point of the side yeard. You can see it while sitting in the living room or on the patio. Yesterday I looked up and saw a lizard sunning on it. I got my camera and worked to get a picture. I discovered that there were at least three lizards wandering around on it. One was willing to be photographed; one ran each time; and one was so similar in coloring to the cactus that you couldn't see it well in the photos.
Another day, I looked up at the window behind the couch and saw a large, black thing. It looked almost like a bat from afar. Getting closer you could see that it was a huge moth resting out of the sun. It stayed there all afternoon and departed at dusk.
This is our 19th move. We think it might be our last before we go to a special center for care. Until then we intend to enjoy each moment!
Gary and Carol are now part of the San Juan Cosala community. On August 7th, 2012 they changed their life style quite dramatically. Rather than living in a secure, gated gringo community, they are living in the center of the upper village of San Juan Cosala. It had to be fate that put a taco stand right across the street! As the only full time expats in the neighborhood, it means learning more Spanish and enjoying a real community.
