Seafood at the Beach in Mexico

Our granddaughter is a big fan of "langostino"...
a creature (for lack of a better word) which is a cross between a lobster and a crawfish. This is heavily seasoned with sauteed garlic. She ate the whole thing!
Our grandson prefers fried fish.. if you can get him to sit still long enough to eat.
Our daughter-in-law had wonderful crabs smothered in a red, spicey sauce.
The rest of us had wonderful grilled shrimp and fish.

The waves on the ocean were amazing. Our granddaughter
snapped this picture! The water was beautiful green as it became this foamy, white mass.

It's Foodie Friday!!!

Quinceañera - Turning 15!


It's the celebration of a young girl turning fifteen.
We call her "niece" however she is actually our son's niece. It's just that we have known her for ten years. She is the namesake of our daughter-in-law, "Marcela".
Marcela when she was about 10 years old.

Tomorrow evening we will all go to Mass. Marcela will be "presented" at church by her parents. They will walk her down the aisle and probably be escorted by other relatives, including her older brother and sister. She will look beautiful and we will all be amazed at what a young lady she has become.
We have flown to Mexico to enjoy this special time for
Marcela. She is especially close to our granddaughter, Carmen who is seven years old.
There will be a wonderful party and dance after the Mass.
My camera will be clicking away so that I will have lots of
pictures to share with you very soon.
Chances are we will not get back to our hotel room until
around 2:00 a.m., but the party will still be going on!
Such a celebration!!
