Finding Gratitude In Challenging Times: As I write this Blog, I realize how grateful I am to be living in El Pescadero, along the Pacific coast, 35 minutes north of Cabo San Lucas. Here I find myself surrounded by nature-amidst open spaces, hills and ocean.
In these times of social distancing, to be able to walk my dog on a secluded beach, tend my garden which has been neglected for some time now, spending sunny days with my wife talking and reading, are sublime and humbling. And the way our community looks after and cares for each other is very comforting as well.
We are blessed here in El Pescadero and Todos Santos with an abundance of local food sources- the local ranches with ample livestock, the ocean and all it offers, organic and commercial farms both big and small, not to mention the fruit trees and my own kitchen garden here at our home make me very happy to live where I do. And under the circumstances, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else in the world at the moment. We have all we need.
I chose to move and live here a couple decades ago when looking for something different from the hub bub of life in El Norte and I found it here in a small Mexican village and today it still provides a respite from the world. Over the years, many people have discovered this little pueblo and its charms, and at times I admit I have been concerned by how quickly this area has grown. But I don’t blame anyone for wanting to own a little piece of this paradise and, at the end of the day, there is still a lot of wide-open space. I’m guessing once this world health crisis passes-and it will -we are going to see a lot more interest in this area. Who wouldn’t want a little slice of heaven to retreat to when the world gets unpredictable?
