Escape to Warmer Climes

by Maggie Sefton



I've escaped the Cold!  Yay!  I'm here in a really, really, really warm and sunny place in southwest Mexico for a while, writing away and enjoying the temperate weather.  Ajijic, Mexico is a lovely little village on the banks of the largest lake in Mexico, Lake Chapala.  (That is NOT a photo of Lakes Chapala.  I haven't had time to take a photo yet but will post one next time.  The photo above was taken on my cruise into the Eastern Carribbean in January 2013).

Ajijic is filled with ex-Patriots, mostly Americans, Brits, and Canadians.  There's also a lively artist colony here, I'm told.   Deb Baker and I are staying in a very pretty 2-story house owned by the American landlady next door.  Patios are everywhere and two rooftop terraces with sunny and shady spots.    We both plan to write, write, write while here, enjoying the milder weather and escaping from this ghastly U.S. winter.

We've only explored a little in the two days we've been here.  But we'll be visiting the lake tomorrow.  Will post photos here and on Facebook.

ATTENTION:  Deb Baker's newest Beekeeping Mystery---BEEWITCHED---comes out today, Tuesday, February 4th.  Look for it!!
