A note now that I have a tiny bit of perspective...

I love San Felipe! I really do and I love it even more with almost no tourists. Did I just say that?

How selfish of me....the locals pray for tourists and there have been less every year.

I don't want to make this political. So I won't...hard for me not to though. I will just say I know so little of what is going on that I can't really have an opinion. I see a gradual disintegration of tourist facilities as people stay away and I have been including Mexico in my prayers...a lot of the fault lies here but a lot lies in my own home country and for that I share responsibility. If we aren't part of the solution, we are damn sure part of the problem.

I will say that as I walk around and talk to people and go to AA meetings and see the genuine love expressed here, I think with a little more room, (like a rented casita) I could live here for some is just what I imagine when I think of a perfect little Mexican town on a pretty bay with shrimp and fish aplenty and just enough norte americanos to keep me feeling at home....

Be well and do good,


  1. Makes me wonder how soon can I get there:).

  2. Sounds nice, perhaps someday.

  3. I'm soooooooooo happy you're happy in San Felipe! I'm looking forward to the day I can be a tourist in San Felipe!

  4. Hi Susan and Bob...I just moved to a smaller, quieter trailer park and am enjoying it too...not on the beach but less windy and very pretty. Nice folks here too.

    Then there are these damn "itchy feet" and the desire to see what's just over the next hill, so I may head south soon...
    Funny, life....
