Hola everyone, hope your all having a great summer but from the looks and sounds of the storm tonight, you all might be getting a little wet. As I was skyping with my better half, I was able to hear and see the awesome lightening and thunderstorm. The dog was barking and the cats where meowing... LET US IN!
I also would like to thank those of you who have sent heartfelt emails this summer, asking to have the newsletter back to its weekly schedule. And so, as you wish. Doesn't seem as thought Jalisco and Riviera Nayarit are ever going to slow down. So here we go, get ready for what I'd like to say is going to be an “Olympic Season” for all of Mexico! Viva Mexico.
The two occupants of a taxi were rescued early Tuesday after a bridge in western Mexico collapsed, authorities said.
The accident cut off the only access route to the Pacific coast resort town of Puerto Vallarta, located in Jalisco state, from the neighboring state of Nayarit.
Several eyewitnesses to the collapse told authorities of the presence of the taxi on the bridge, emergency services personnel in Jalisco told Efe.
The structure partially collapsed about 3 a.m. due to the erosion of its support pillars by the rise of the rain-swollen Ameca River.
The eyewitnesses also reported the presence of another vehicle on the span at the moment of the collapse and authorities are currently trying to either find it or rule out its presence by combing the area with helicopters.

El choque de sistemas meteorológicos ocasionó mal tiempo el día de ayer en la región, con viento frío, lluvia, cielo nublado a medio nublado, una fuerte marejada y hasta la formación de una de las llamadas “culebras de agua” en la bahía de Banderas.
Desde temprana hora, el frío, la lluvia y la fuerte marejada llamaron la atención de turistas y habitantes locales en el malecón, quienes vieron con asombro cómo las olas se estrellaban en el muro de contención y en algunas partes el mar lo rebasaba para llegar a la calle.
El mayor espectáculo fue ver en aguas de la bahía de Banderas una de las llamadas “culebras de agua”, que presentan la forma de un tornado, pero que es agua del mar que se levanta por las condiciones meteorológicas que confluyen en ese momento.

The sea spray is still drying on my face as less than an hour ago, I stepped off the boat after one of the most incredible days of my entire life!
Yesterday, December 8, 2009 was the first official day of whale watching in the Banderas Bay. After several days of rain, it dawned a gloriously clear and sunny day. Keith picked me up and we were off by 7:45 am, as excited as two kids on Christmas morning!
Arriving at Los Peines pier, I realized it had been several years since I had been to that particular marina. What changes! Parking, a restaurant, benches - the works! I remember the days of it being a muddy and ugly place but no longer.
