Beautiful Queretaro

While San Miguel de Allende is a beautiful colonial city, Queretaro is a very close second. It’s only an hour from SMA and has a beautiful colonial central area. Bill and I had to take the car in for service today and Queretaro has the closest dealership so while the car was being serviced we decided to stroll the downtown streets. It’s quite beautiful with parks, churches, restaurants and shops.

Monarch Sanctuary in Michoacán

We just got back from a wonderful trip to Morelia and the monarch sanctuary in Michoacán. We stayed one night in Morelia and it’s a beautiful vibrant city. Although there weren’t as many monarchs as last year, it was still a fantastic privilege to see one of the world’s natural wonders. All-in-all, it was a fantastic trip and here are a few of my favorite photos from our journey. Enjoy!

Tierra Blanco

Last week my friend, Randy, and I took a ride out to Tierra Blanco. It’s a small town about 1.5 hours from San Miguel de Allende. The town has a couple of churches and a jardin in the center. We had lunch at a small “cafe” which consisted of a woman cooking out on the sidewalk and a single table inside. We enjoyed some delicious gorditas. We got a little

Visiting Ensenada

Bill and I decided to get out of San Miguel for a few days so we caught and flight to Tijuana and then drove down to Ensenada. We stayed in a wonderful hotel called Punta Morro and saw most of the sights. Our favorite part of the trip was when we drove to La Bufadora (the blower). It’s a small town located all the way out on the southern point

Bernal Road Trip

I had to take the Harley in for a service so Bill (with Juliet) and I decided to add a road trip to Bernal. What a wonderful little town! Lots of shops and restaurants in the central part of the town and it was very easy to get to. You can definitely park you car and walk around the whole town. We had some great tacos for lunch and did

Butterfly Sanctuary in Michoacán

I had the privilege of visiting the butterfly sanctuary in Michoacán this past week. I went on a tour with my friend Kathy and her granddaughter Chloe. We stayed at the Agua Blanca Spa the first night and then drove to the sanctuary the next day. I have to say… the sanctuary was like nothing I’ve ever seen before. There were Monarch butterflies everywhere—in the sky, on the trees, on

I’ve Been Lazy

I’ve been a bit lazy lately and haven’t really gone out for more photos. Bill and I have been busy with moving and getting adjusted to life in Mexico. So I decided to go back through some of my photos and re-post some of  my favorite photos from over the years. I hope to get back out on the streets soon for more photos. Enjoy!

Atotonilco, Mexico

This morning Bill and I drove to the little town of Atotonilco. It’s located about 8 miles outside San Miguel and is the home to the Galeria Atotonilco and the Sanctuary de Atotonilco. We’re going back on Friday with some friends, but we wanted to make sure we could find the places we wanted to see. If you want to tour the Galeria, you must make an appointment, but the
