Rancho Primavera, El Tuito Mexico

Ranchoprimaverashs2015I just got back from a lovely trip to Mexico and already miss it terribly. What a way to wake up in the morning! Morning coffee in Paradise! I sipped away with the sound of birds singing, instead of someone starting up their motor car to go off to work. Birds…fresh air…windows open and best of all, in February, not a single coat in sight! Heaven… This was my morning view from the rocking chair with French Press Coffee in hand…that is until someone else wanted breakfast!

The Ranch Horses patiently waiting for their breakfast pulled me away from my breath-taking views.  Guilt from a baby horse always wins over a second cup of coffee. After they have had their fill, they  wandered off to explore the endless pastures and trails. Every corner you turn, there is something stunning to see.  Here’s a view that I fell in love with. I loved  how the cactus and the bougenvilla contrast with each other.

And then there are the birds. I am not a bird person per say. I know an Eagle from a Sparrow, but that’s about it.  Just sitting, drinking coffee  I saw well over 20 different types of birds in one coffee session. That’s just from the front porch. There are countless birds in the ponds, birds of prey, birds in the river…even birds eating peanuts! Meet Jasmine…a wild parrot, well not so wild…

Jasmine blends in perfectly to her surroundings. She demands breakfast every morning, preferably scrambled eggs, peanuts, and her mangoes cut up. She prefers it that way rather than taking her choice of mangoes from the mango grove. That too much work for a little bird! She’s not above stealing her meal either. One evening she flew into the house and stole the top layer from the lasagna we were waiting to devour!   Here she is ready for her close up…

There are well over 300 acres to explore. I didn’t get a change to do that lot. The countless endless views held me captive, like this one of the lake.

Rancho Primavera is a birder’s paradise, or for people like me…just peace and quiet in the company of dogs and horses.  If you want more information on this little slice of Paradise I’ve included the link below. I hope you get a chance to come Mexico Way and enjoy this little slice of heaven. It’s just waiting….

About susan sheldon

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

    Wow! What a beautiful place to recharge those batteries. Jasmine is a cheeky, but pretty, bird!

    • Yvonne, it was so relaxing! I had to be pulled from my chair. I felt like I had a glass of wine before I got up and sat in the rocking chair to sip coffee! I was not used to silence and fresh air and birds birds! I love Jasmine! Cheeky little thing!

    It looks so beautiful. Did you have any worries for your safety in Mexico? Just curious. I know the reported violence has hampered tourism there a bit, though I suspect it’s perfectly safe in the resorts.

  3. Carrie, if you are worried, I’d just stick to the tourist places like Puerto Vallarta which is stunning! In El Tuito was super safe! Very Old World Mexico. Loved it! I can’t wait to go back again. January is such a long way away! 🙂
