New Year – New Opportunities!

Hey there all!  Happy New Year!

Here comes 2016 ready or not.  There are so many very interesting things happening that I’ve barely had time to catch my breath.

First and very fun — we are now legal residents, and then the job I mentioned has become a reality.  I’ll be working at El Claro 1 1/2 days a week doing my Ayuvedic massage. (See it at  But I already have another invitation to work at a Country Club Spa.

We are learning Spanish.  We’re having so much fun and some things are beginning to actually make sense.  Catalina, our teacher, makes it fun.  Kris and I had a couple hours of lessons at her house on Thursday morning,(New Year’s Eve), and she called the guy who is the Spa Director for the Club where she lives.  He wants me to email him with my information.  We’ll see.  I don’t want to get too involved in too many things because I haven’t done any massage for 3 months.  I’ve got to work into it!

I also have applied to teach English conversation to English Second Language people in Brazil — they’re learning English — I’m learning Spanish — believe me I know how they feel! ha ha

Kris and I went to the beach and had a great time.  It’s about 15 miles from the house, but it’s a straight shot right down the highway.

The day before it had rained 3 1/2 inches in 24 hours so the beach was mostly “dark sand”, but it sure didn’t seem to hinder people from spending the day there.  Afterward we went to a little cafe and had a great meal.  Sometimes these little places fool you because it may look like they don’t have much to offer because they are so small.  This one makes all their own bread for their sandwiches and we just happened to order one that came on fresh warm bread.  Wow!  We will definitely eat there again.

We plan to have many more trips like this as the summer goes along.  How fun to be where we are doing what we love!  We’re excited to live this new year — one day at a time remember!

I guarantee you this is the biggest personal watercraft I’ve ever seen.  It is a Yamaha and three people were riding on it AND they pulled up one of the kids behind on skiis.  Wow!  The flew around the bay with no problem, shooting water into the air.  It was fun to watch.  Actually there were two or three others out there.  Just as we were leaving, people were about to launch their catamarans and take off.  Such a neat place. Not crowded in the morning at all.  We only stayed from about 9 a.m. till 11 a.m. and then went to the cafe.

Yep that’s me — trying to keep from getting sunburned and loving it!  So beautiful here.
