Sunshine in Beautiful San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico!

We arrived in beautiful San Carlos, Mexico yesterday in time to see the sun dipping behind the Tetakawi Mountain.  The clear blue sky and temperature in the mid-70's was a welcome contrast from the dreary gray skies and pouring rain that we had left behind in southern Arizona that morning.  I felt my mood improving immediately with the change in weather.  Healthy living and traveling in Mexico begins with a good dose of sunshine!

We have been looking forward to a Sunday afternoon at the Soggy Peso Bar, sitting on the beach with our feet in the warm sand, watching the kite-boarders surfing in the bay.  It was as good as we remembered it! We shared a lunch of crab and avocado salad with tortilla chips and a shrimp quesadilla.  Such delicious, fresh food for a very fair price!  Another step in our quest for healthy living.

At the table next to us, a Mexican family of five was having lunch.  The baby showed us how to finish the afternoon off right, with a siesta. This is nap time, Mexican style.  We can learn a lot from the Mexicans about healthy living.
