Flowers in Mexico

I know this grows in Texas... but do I know the name of it?? No... These beautiful flowers were on the patio where we ate our lunch today in Mexico.

I wish so much I could tell you  what the name of this flower is. I just love it. So different. When I was living here I had a pot of these on my patio.

Lunch at Boca de Pascuales, Mexico

Lunch at Las Hamacas in Boca de Pascuales

    My husband and I enjoyed such a nice lunch at the beach yesterday. The beach is just barely a ten minute drive from town of Tecoman, Mexico. I love the baked fish, topped with sauteed almost fried garlic, rice and salad. There is potato salad also on the plate but it is not one of my favorites. The drink is agua de coco, coconut water. I love it! Very refreshing.
    The restaurant, Las Hamacas (which means "the hamocks") is a very large restaurant on the beach. All open-air, of course. We love going there and have been for nearly fifteen years. It is located on the second best surfing beach in Mexico. Surfers from all over the world come to surf there... and many of them come to be filmed. We love it when we can catch them surfing.
    More tomorrow!
