LAST DAYS IN MISMALOYA

In these pictures we are capturing some of our last days in Mismaloya. We had a great month there with lots of sun, pool and beach time, great home cooked meals (our suite had a good kitchen), and lots of new friends. 

But first and foremost Mismaloya was about riding horses. Horses horses horses! Lili rode almost every day, and by the end of the month she was galloping at good speed coming home from the rides.  She never gets tired of riding.

This is Jehu with Lili after one of the rides. This horse is Chilindrina - and she is also pregnant. Other horses that Lili rode were Galleta, and Lucero. Chava normally rode Mariposa and Jehu rode Cuervo or sometimes Scorpion. There was also Coqueta (that had the colt) and Susana (John from Texas rode Susana).

Lili on Galleta.  Galleta was excused from riding duty about a week before we left because her baby was due soon. We have asked Jehu to email us a picture of the foal when it comes.

Lili on a ride with the lovely Waterman family from California. From the front: Cuervo's back - Jehu took the picture. Then Cosette on Chilindrina, Lili on Galleta, Amy on Susanna and Jeff on Scorpion!   And yes. We have carried those cowboy boots all around the world, through all the countries we have visited so that Lili could use them when she rides in Mexico.
