On Saturday morning, we boarded the bus for Rancho La Puerta, Tecate, Mexico. The best description is that this is summer camp for adults. The food is both delicious and healthy, there are an amazing number of classes. I've taken tennis lessons, done circuit training, ride and glide (part-spinning and part gliding different body parts on plates that slide easily on carpet, yoga, hiking. This is ashtanga yoga week with a beautiful teacher from San Diego. I could go on and on. Roy has even done pilates!! People are from all over Canada and the U.S., most interesting and friendly. We're physically exhausted but are enjoying the activity tremendously. And the grounds are spectacular in a rustic, rugged way. This is not a fancy spa; it is for people interested in both physical activity and mind/body work. The ranch is nestled in the mountains and, if one chooses, there are some pretty serious mountain hikes. So far, we haven't made it up at 6:15 a.m. to get on board. I'm not sure we will. There is a garden hike that we will take where one hikes to the organic garden that they have here. Breakfast is served there and is supposed to be quite spectacular.
We're here until Saturday, then on to Los Angeles where we'll spend some time with friends, also see Laura and Jared who are planning to come for the weekend.
