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.

So, off we go to stay on schedule for Mazatlan. The roads have lots of holes in them, so I am busy looking right in front of me practically while I’m driving, and Owen is deciphering the signs, being a great navigator, and doing the math as I get use to Kilometers for miles and speed. There are a lot of trucks on the road. The big rigs really push me around as they wiz by. I like to drive. Owen and I make a good team.

So, I guess it’s about 6 hours of driving or so. We are on interstate 15…the new toll road.  Very funny! I can only imagine other roads at this point! And, I am soon to find out, as we turn off towards Las Glorias driving down past the farms and down to the beach. It was very slow going. But in divine order indeed!  On our route there were women out selling tomatoes. We stopped of course, and bought a big bag of them for 90 cents. They were Delicious!

When we got to Mr. Moro, there was only one other RV there! So, we parked close to the ocean in a prime spot! How lucky! We met the guy in the other RV, his name was Rod from Indiana.  He was on his own, and traveled on vacation to Mexico every year. We both ended up staying for two days. Owen went to chat with him, and found out he was a naturist! (likes to run around nude)Like us!

So, that was great! And there was nobody there except a few workers. We had dinner with Rod the both nights we were there. They served a pretty good dinner there too!Lots of fish (pescada) and shrimp (camerones).  Yummy!

We had a great night sleep that first night, and got up with intentions of washing Bertha. She needed it badly.

And so we did. Naked. It was great! Our first day of real sunshine. We both got a bit burned!…especially the back side ….owens was a tad worse I think! But it was great to have Bertha all clean!! And, then for a swim in the pool. AHHHH! How refreshing!

Another good nights sleep, and we were off on the journey the next morning.
