So, we arrive in Lo De Marcos, and back into the RV park space just as the darkness comes upon us. WHEW! We made it!

I felt a very overwhelming sense of gratitude and also a feeling that we were in the right town. Even though we had so much stress that day, I knew in my heart and every cell in my being that this was a good place for us. It left me feeling quite elated!

We had a hot shower and a good nights sleep. The RV park, Cruz Maria was packed except for a couple of spaces. We woke to the sounds of dogs barking and folks talking over their coffee…way too noisy for our likings!! And, we could not see the ocean.

So, we got in the jeep and decided to scout out the area. Right next door to Cruz Maria is La Parota RV Park, which was completely empty! So, we went to the gate and spoke with Maria Gonzales, who happens to be the wife of Juan Gonzalaes. They are the park owners.

She does not speak English, but she was able to let us know Juan would be back that afternoon, and we could come in and park, and pay him later. All of that with our small amount of Spanish, and her small understanding of English. Muy bueno!

We get Bertha over to La Parota, and it is very nice indeed. It is the newest park here, which means everything is up to code :) . The bathrooms are beautiful, with lots of lovely hot water. They have a new washer and dryer, and plenty of space to hang the laundry to dry. We parked in the best spot, down in front with a lovely ocean view and close to the beach. When I mean close, I mean about 75 feet. :)

Juan Martinez Sr. came home in the afternoon. He is truly one of the most heart centered people that I have ever met! A very amazing man indeed. He told me that he as owned this property for 35 years, when there were no paved roads, and hardly anyone lived here.

Lo De Marcos is still very much a village, and has not been taken over with tourism ….yet. We really like it here.

We are approaching Easter weekend. They call it the Semana Santa, which is actually the week leading up to Easter. All of the beaches and places to stay will be packed with the mexican peoples. Then, its summer, which is the off season.

We have decided to stay here for a couple of months, so I will have much more for you on this lovely town, as we meet the locals and discover Lo De Marcos.

Travel days seem to have a bit more tension energy around them. There is a lot to pay attention to, and especially because the maps do not have all of the roads on them…and the GPS is basically useless to use when you get turned around, telling you to turn up one way roads etc.  And, so, we got turned around a couple of times, of course! The smaller towns are packed and very tight roads. Thank goodness that “I’m an excellent driver” !  (even though Owen had to look behind us on the right side when changing lanes!!)

We actually had to take the jeep off once to get out of the small streets!  I ended up talking to a young guy on a bicycle that ended up riding his bike in front of us to show us the way out! This is how nice everyone is! And, then he spoke to an older guy, and he gave us better directions, and faster and better route. He did not want anything from us…but I gave him a pepsi, which he very much liked, and Owen gave him 50 pesos, which I am sure he was happy about, being out of work. He said that work was hard to find right now.

Okay, so we got turned around again! This time, not so bad. The sun was beginning to set, and we needed to get to where we were going. No driving at night in Mexico. The roads have too many large potholes, and crazy drivers indeed! And, there are lots of horses, cows, and lord knows what else wandering around and into the street!

However, I have a lot of perseverance, and I hang onto the steering wheel and drive us right to Lo De Marcos, backing the RV into its spot just as it turns completely dark.

You do not want to drive at night.
