Somewhere In Mexico

Somewhere in Mexico, a man pulls up to a beach in a camper, dog by his side. He unpacks supplies as the sun rises to warm his back. Rod and tackle in hand, a man sets out to befriend a stranger who will become the captain of the boat he takes out into the sea.

Somewhere in Mexico fish are caught and conversation drifts with the waves. Thick salt air cracks a man’s lips as he enjoys long deep contented breaths. A small boat bobs above the Pacific. The sun crests the sky, westward bound.

Somewhere in Mexico, a man is satisfied with his catch. The captain pilots him back to land to befriend fellow campers and swap tall tales over beers. There is talk of diving the cliffs of Acapulco.

Somewhere in Mexico a dog barks and the waves crash upon the shore and the sun slips back behind the horizon as a day’s efforts turn into dinner and a man is happy to have found paradise.

      Hi Matt,

      I wish I were in Mexico right now. No, I lost my father-in-law yesterday after a long illness and I just wanted to write a tribute to him that spoke to his adventurous spirit.

      I really enjoyed your blog! Right now I’m going through Europe, but it’s cool to read about someone who’s off on a different adventure. Travel on!
