We found a place to settle for a couple of months in the Lake Chapala area. Would you like to come on a photographic tour?
Our van, as seen from when you are climbing amongst the bushes (like Maret was) trying to get the early risen sun’s rays shining through the red leaves.
The Outside of our Hotel Suites. The ‘Tour’ begins through that open patio door on the right (#5), and we’ll work towards the left (#6). Everything is adjoined through a series of doors.
One entrance into our suite. It’s a patio but Mitchell sleeps here on the futon. Our dining table is here but we don’t have space to use it for eating our meals. We play games and store things on it. You know how it is….any flat surface is for storage.
From Mitch’s room you enter our ‘bedroom’ which also includes the Bar and Library!! We are thrilled to have a king-sized bed. Laars sleeps on a small couch pressed between the wall and bed.
Library (and closet for our clothes!) and the surfboards
Main bathroom, off our bedroom (the door is to the right of the Bar, beside the Library). There is another bathroom on the lower level (3 steps!!) between the kitchen and the children’s bedroom. No pics of the second bathroom, its too small for a photo….and full of drying bathing suits.
Down the few steps from our bedroom we find the tiny cave of a kitchen to the right…
and the Teen Girls Bedroom to the left, which also includes a dresser we use to extend the kitchen, along with a full-size fridge/freezer on the right.
Kids bedroom with beloved bunks and has a skylight.
The second entrance into our suite is another patio, but this one is used as a Living Room. Here the kids are busy watching the Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
Our outside kitchen…well, it isn’t ours, but we can use it if there isn’t a Mexican party going on (most weekends)
outside dining room
Panoramic view from our doorway. There’s a pool back there!
Kids on the soccer field with Emma.
So, that’s a tour of where we are settled for a while. Approximately 850 sq ft. It’s comfortable enough, and enables us to get out some of our belongings that we only see once in a while. Like the slow-cookers, our Blendtec, all our books (even school ones!!) and crafts.
