Much needed break…

We are on a much needed hiatus. Our first get away from it all in over two years. They haven’t been the easiest two years and getting here proved difficult as well. Since getting here my husband has been ill. Which leaves you the reader with several questions, maybe.

As we all know the pandemic has not allowed anyone to travel. Plans were made, plans were canceled. This year we can travel. Months ago we arranged everything for a two month stay in Mazatlan. Those plans, dreams, saw us through one of the most difficult times in our lives. The death of our youngest son. Two days before our departure date to Mazatlan. Violence erupted, I am sure most of you heard about that. Our dreams shattered. But, we managed to change everything at the last minute. Flights, accommodation and all. It was a stressful few days but thanks to great friends who stepped up to help and modern technology we are now happily ensconced in Ixtapa.

My husband has been ill but thanks to modern medicine and good medical services in Mexico he is recovering from a severe sinus infection and possible pneumonia. We have been determined to remain optimistic and look on the bright side of every deterrent.

Our glass is more than half full, all the time. I won’t say full of what exactly, you can figure that out. We are on vacation.

Ergo, you won’t be hearing much from me for awhile. Cheers Susan

On hiatus

I prefer sandy beaches and sunshine to a snowy and cold Canadian winter. Ergo I am on hiatus in Mexico and away from blogging. Maybe by the time I return to my Canadian home it will be sunnier and warmer. Here’s hoping. In the meantime I am sharing some photos. Enjoy.


“Bird Island”

Bird Island. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Colors on box canvas. Inspired by the two Islands near Guayabitos Mexico and a demonstration by Mike Barr in PleinAir magazine I painted “Bird Island”. My version. I don’t recall what the two Islands actual names were but there were birds a plenty. Enjoy the feel of Pacific breezes and hear the waves roll onto the beach. This painting is for sale at Three Buoys Marina on Riverside Ave in Sicamous.
