Guatemala - Chap 1 - Antigua - June 2015

Another journey has begun 

Guatemala - Chapter 1, Antigua




A couple of months ago I was asked to house sit for a repeat client, as she was planning a trip to Guatemala and Panama.  Knowing Guatemala was on my 'bucket list', I responded "Hey, I want to go to Guatemala, how about I join you and find someone else to watch the house?"  Amanda (the homeowner) also knew of my bucket list and we agreed to meet and discuss my request.

Well, after some discussion, we decided that if I joined her, her plans would change.  Since she hadn't been to Nicaragua, we'd go there instead of Panama.  Details ironed out, another friend (Kathy) joining us, it was time to go.

Chapter 2 - Local Attractions

This assignment is drawing to a close.  It's been a good stay, and with time spent playing with the dogs, seeing local sites, and lounging by the pool, I want to say thanks to Jim and Cynthia.  

Enjoy the pix of some of the local attractions I visited in the 6 days.

CHAPTER 1 - WELCOME TO THE SWAMP


Once again, I’ve been blessed with a house and pet sitting assignment for a returning client/friend.  I sat Jim and Cynthia’s home and Bichons last year as I recuperated from hand and elbow surgery.  When they contacted me to sit again, it was an immediate ‘yes’ response.

Arriving the night before their departure, we renewed our friendship and reviewed what’s been going on in our lives, while Tuffy, Baby (the Bichons), and I got reacquainted.  

I spent the first day with the dogs and lounging around the pool.  Day two was an outing to the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.  Enjoy the swamp pix as you ‘Travel Thru My Eyes’.

House / Pet Sitting - St. Petersburg Florida, March 2015
( in retrospect )




I recently completed a routine house and pet sitting assignment for Amanda in St Petersburg, Florida. Her house is a typical, old style, Florida cinder block home.  It sits in a quiet community, with most homes having direct access to a channel (canal of some people call it) leading to Tampa Bay.  Boat docks outnumber pools, and backyard fishing is combined with cookouts.  Welcome, to coastal Florida life.
