We have had a great 2 months here in Rosarito Beach Mexico. It has been stunning to wake up each morning to the crashing waves just outside our bedroom. Even on gray days the beach is always stunning. I have made a lot of shell collage art that I have been giving away. We have been eating great Mexican seafood almost everyday. We could walk to 3 restaurants from our condo complex. Popotla fishing village was a wonderful source of big shells and fresh fish. We are sad to leave but now is the time to go home and prepare for the next part of our big adventure — the Europe senior gap year.
We went out to dinner this afternoon at one of our favorite seaside restaurants; Splash. We had steak for David and lobster for Linda Click the link below to see the video, it ends with David sitting at our table in an orange shirt.
Tomorrow up early to pack car , check out and sit in line to cross the border. Sunday is the worst day so we will be there a while.
Good bye Mexico…..packing at home…hello cruise….hello Rome…oh my!
As much fun as it has been to walk on the beach and take sunset and fish photos for two months, our time in Rosarito Beach is swiftly drawing to an end. It is very sad to leave our cute condo above the Pacific Ocean. We go home at the end of the week to prepare and pack for the European gap year trip.
David has been working hard at looking at apartments to rent in Italy the last two months, and now all of our reservations are lined up for the first 2 months of the trip. With the internet it is much simpler to plan and reserve places to stay in Europe. We found all three places on VRBO, HomeAway, or AirBnB.
The itinerary looks like this; April 8 fly to Fort Lauderdale and board the Celebrity Constellation and cross the Atlantic in 13 days with stops at Madeira, Gibraltar, and Alicante. On the 22nd, we land in Rome and spend 7 days there. Then on to Assisi for 3 days and then to Florence, my favorite city in Italy, for one month. Wow, it is really hard to believe that in a month we will be in Rome. I am so excited, and my camera is humming, ready to start to capture wonderful photos to share with you.
Here are a couple of photos of the sunset tonight in Mexico.
I was so excited that I did not even grab my camera to take a photo to share. Perhaps if I see them again I will be able to think and not just jump up and down and say; “David, come see!”
I am still having trouble learning photoshop elements but this is one of my efforts. I will be scrapbooking our trip with digital pages that can be saved and then printed out at home to make the book.
