Los Barriles is such a great place to expand our group of friends; we are always meeting nice people. On this trip, we have met Greg and Dari McKim, over at Vista del Mar, about 0.7 mile down the beach to the south from Mar y Sol, where we live now. We met them when we were exploring Vista del Mar as an option for a larger place. Greg and Dari have both been so gracious to show us around Vista del Mar and answer our (well, mostly Mary’s) endless questions.
Stefi has been particularly happy to know them because of their beautiful, youthful, exuberant dog, Mocha. Mocha loves the water and has enjoyed playing with Stefi. Stefi also wanted me to tell you that Mocha likes to chase butterflies and shadows.
Mary and I took a walk down the beach to Vista del Mar this morning, and the surf was crashing about as big as we have ever seen it at Los Barriles. It was nearly calm here, but there must have been big wind elsewhere to push up those breakers. Mocha came out to play on the beach, and I just had to get a shot of her with the crashing waves in the background. Here it is.
