Spring has Sprung

I can hear some of you scoffing, but it does get cooler down here in the winter months and there are times when we actually do wear jeans and jackets. Of course, to be honest, we only do this in the evenings, and sometimes it is a 'fashion statement' rather than a real necessity. The Mexican nationals, however, really do wear much warmer clothing in January and February, sometimes going as far as leather jackets (with fleece collars), turtlenecks and knee high boots. I think the boots are a fashion statement as well.

However, even during the cooler evenings of the last few months, we have still gone to bed every night with the windows wide open and although I broke down and bought a pair of jeans, I still wore them with sandles. If that was winter in Mazatlan, bring it on!

Because we've had more rain than usual for this time of year it is still very green. However, in the past few weeks we've noticed a difference in town.

The flowers are back and they are lovely. Spring has finally arrived in Mazatlan.

There are blooms everywhere!

Spring has sprung in St. Thomas too.March break had awesome weather sunny days for the whole week.Kids were outside playing and adults were walking the streets.It's time at last to throw open the windows.
