Life in Loreto

While we wait out a little blow from the North, we made a trip up to Loreto. It was super easy to hitch-hike in to town, super beautiful to wander around the town, and super expensive to taxi back from town (turns out we’re not that great at hitch-hiking… I thought with my flower and Jon’s hat we’d be shoe-ins… but not so much). Anyways, a few photos from the last couple of days…

The town of Loreto

 

Jon finally got the hat that he's been coveting since we first arrived in Mexico. He's been calling me "little lady" ever since 🙂

(Not that life is ever without hiccups!)

Hiccup #1: We ran out of water. Couldn't figure out how we possibly drank/used 60 gallons of water in a little over 10 days... until we discovered a nice leak from one of our water tanks. Thank goodness this little hacienda / shack on the beach sold water, and was able to top up our "emergency liquids" so we could continue on happily!!!

 

Hiccup #2: The toilet broke. I have a pretty understanding boyfriend, but when I pulled out the bucket... let's just say he wasn't too excited 🙂 Toilet jobs fall in the Leah-category, so while we enjoyed the newly-found paradise all around us, we also rebuilt the head. Leaking pumps, backed up discharge hoses, non-functioning joker valves, these are all details you should be happy you don't have to know about!!! 🙂 And the toilet is functioning again!
