Our Moving to Mexico Anniversary

Eight years ago today my husband and I crossed the border into Mexico with our two kids in our Toyota 4 Runner. We didn’t even know all the beautiful Mexican adventure that awaited us.
(This was then picture taken in Guanajuato. Mexico)
We left Canada on August 28, 2001. After a wonderful, leisurely trip along the Oregon coast, and an exploration of Hollywood and Disneyland and Universal Studios and Arizona and its wonderful desert museum we would cross the border into Mexico at Nogales on September 10, 2001.
We spent our first night in Hermosillo, in the Northwest of Mexico, in the state of Sonora. It was a place where no one seemed to speak English. First oh no what have we done moment? No way. We knew what we wanted.

The next day we traveled 2 1/2 hours to a little coastal town called San Carlos. In San Carlos we got our first taste of the warm, Mexican ocean. We drove the truck out on the sand of a huge beach and immediately went out to play in the turquoise blue water!

The rest – as they say - is history!
We love you Mexico!

Enjoy the Adventure! Suzanne
