Leaving La Penita RV Park
It hardly seems like four months have come and gone. It seems only yesterday we were researching the possibility of taking our new RV to Mexico and through that research discovered an offer on a web-site run by Dorothy and Bill Bell. The offer was to lead a small caravan of travelers, (30 rigs total) to the La Penita RV Park, managed by Carole Thacker from British Columbia Canada. There were two caveats to the offer. First you were required to attend a presentation by Dorothy and Bill Bell about the trip and traveling in Mexico. The Second was that you were required to book in to the La Penita RV Park for one month.
I have written/blogged for four months now about our experiences here in the RV Park and the surrounding area and I know that many of you have shared in those experiences through our writings and pictures. What you have not been able to share in or experience are the life changing friendships that we have been privileged to make, or the endless beauty surrounding us on a daily basis. You also have not been able to hear the sounds of strange birds, or the sound of crashing waves as they come ashore, or sense the friendliness of the Mexican people and even more so the workers hired to tend to the Park. You also unfortunately were unable to taste the true Mexican dishes that we so often sampled while kicking off our shoes and digging our toes in the sand.
Kathleen and I are so grateful that we acted on Dorothy and Bills offer. We thank Carole Thacker, manager of La Penita RV Park for not only accepting us for the one month that we initially committed too, but also then allowing us to stay the season. This has been an amazing experience to have been part of what is probably the friendliest most active RV Park in all of Mexico.
No matter where we travel in Mexico or park our rig in the future we will fondly remember this winter of 2007/2008.
