The season is shaping up to be a busy one

TENACATITA, Jalisco, Mexico - The days are ticking off quickly before Adm. Fox and I return to Costa Alegre in December where there has been plenty of news this summer, even though some of it has been below the radar.

The water shortage - maybe even a real drought - has been chatted about to some degree (and reported in the Guadalajara Reporter by local writer and bon vivant Jane Gorby.) It looks like La Manzanilla residents are in for a long, very dry, winter. Two years ago the water started getting a little salty towards the end of our stay, blamed by officials on salt water intrusion into one of the main La Manz well.s

At the same time, the village always seems to find ways around its problems, salty or not.
