On this blogger site one can click on all pictures except for the header two times each time making them larger which is a feature I like because it gives you the ability to really look very close at all kinds of things not readily seen.

Out And About

A few pictures of what goes on in my world these days. Find these flowers to be rather pretty.

My new casa. I live on the bottom which is a studio with the top being a two bedroom.

I buy fish here and several other places as well. There are quite a few around and bought fish much further into Vallarta this morning. Spent $19 including almost 5 for some reading glasses as don't have any spares left.

From the upstairs apartment. Mine is just as nice but much smaller. I'd really like to live up here but for one guy it's too much and too expensive.

All I can say here is that these are sooooo good and eat them with most meals. Costs a buck.

I walk with Andres and Maria who own the property. Gracious and hospitable always as everyone seems to be here and anywhere else. Pretty cool actually. I expect this new friendship to continue even after I leave. Maria is holding avocados in case you were wondering.

Color For A Friend

Click on these so they get BIG. Twice

My friend Linda from Delta who doesn't have her corn in yet (they do now - happy days)suggested I get out there and find some color as it's drab in Colorado and many other places as well and brighten things up a bit.

A bit of motivation doesn't hurt sometimes so out I went and produced several half decent pictures for a change and definitely not in order. It takes a loooong time to upload these. All were taken today 12/13.

This is on the other side of a small river where the school is located. Typical life. 

There is color many places.

Soon many of these will be in bloom.

A common flower and took pictures of the same in Costa Rica.

The next four pictures were taken in a neighbors garden. Everybody cooperated. The dragonfly didn't move the whole time I was there. Either he was on his way out/hungover or something of that nature. It sure wasn't from being cold.


Took one shot of this spider and got it. Very hard with my camera to get something like this in focus.


Went for a hike on a trail and cannot emphasize enough how intense it is and this picture does not do justice not even a little bit. It was fairly dark and need to leave earlier than what I did next time. It's a work out and wasn't quite prepared. The highlight was when I came to a very small area where the sun was getting through and I saw another one of these the first being in Costa Rica. I just figured I would never see another but I did today. It's happenings like this that makes things go round for this guy.

Very pretty-hard to capture and you will not just walk into this greenery. Not sure what kind of forest this really is and it very well may be called something other. Will find out.

The way it was driving out of Walsenburg 11/16 but since then the weather has been quite  mild.

Puerto Vallarta

Illustrative pictures in town or just Vallarta as it's known locally. One of the many stores on the south end where you can get pretty much whatever you want except for decent Italian salad dressing.

Some waves can be huge. The ocean is a bit over a half mile away from where I live.  

These flowers are common along the beach.

What a view these people must have from these building

Typical street scene in town looking towards the ocean which is actually a ba

Pretty impressive church design. 

Inside just as grand and this town and I'm sure the whole country is gearing up for Christmas.

Around The Neighborhood

Pictures in no particular order. Just glad I was able to upload them

This is the new place I'll be going to on the 19th. It may be real decent if the lady in charge produces some things it needs. Internet will be better as well I'm led to believe. In fact this is a bit unique inside. It's only a three minute walk from here.

 On a side road and if you don't look closely you would walk past as I did the first couple times. The forest is reclaiming this.

The local school here in Nagalito. 16 students and they are leadfing the pack in collection of plastic and aluminum hoping to win a good prize. Everyone loves the teacher.

This is an example of numerous stores on the south side of Puerto Vallarta. Inexpensive and fun to look around.

Saw a dead one in Costa Rica so it was a treat to get this picture of a beautiful reddish dragonfly. Butterfly's are plentiful but don't stop.
