Bed rest and beach walk

Fortunately Tuesday was my physiotherapy day.  I feared the worst as Octavio checked me out. He found that the twisting motion caused by my massage lady had inflamed a cross ligament behind my right knee.  He immediately applied TENS and later did an ultrasound treatment.  His orders were to sit with my leg extended for two full days using ice only and to do no exercises.

Because the tide was low he did walk down to the beach with us to check it out and approved that I can walk on the hard packed sand.  A total of 15 minutes, so 7 minutes in one direction and back, twice per day.

I did not walk again until Wednesday morning.  You can’t imagine my joy at being able to get out on the sand, listen to the surf and see so many things.  Lots of hammocks here at Cordons.

Just waiting for the tourists to show up.  Directly above the red boogie board is the roof of our palapa and our yard.

I figured that I had mostly rested Monday, all day Tuesday and until sunset Wednesday.  We were off to Mazatlan as the sun set.  Taken from the launcha.

We were once again taking in music at La Bohemia Wednesday evening.  Low light and shaky photo.

While Colin paid the cover charge and sorted out our seats I walked four laps around the square in order to get my second 15 minute walk of the day in.

A very tiny and very young puppy.

I ordered the shrimp fettuccini for dinner and Colin ordered a veggie pizza with pineapple.  The waiter kept saying”no tiene”/”we don’t have it”.  Suddenly Colin pulled out a can of pineapple from our bag!  I can’t believe he did that but he did get pineapple on his pizza.  Talk about pre planning.

It was the final night that Mitch was playing there.  He had one more performance at Diego’s Beach House Friday and was having town today ( Saturday ).  We certainly enjoyed the performance.

    Enjoyed this post for many reasons. How do you get across the soft sand to do your beach walk? What joy you much have felt and you can walk without shoes?! Continue to do well and you will soon be walking where ever you wish. Good on Colin, made me laugh….

      Love being on the beach again even if it is only for a short period of time. I walk through the sand in sandals as the sand can be very hot and hang onto Colin’s arm. I am not strong enough yet to do it on my own.

    You live in such a pretty place during the winter … well and the summer 🙂 That puppy was so cute and smart move on Colin’s part!

      I really wanted to pick up that puppy but I knew it was not a good idea. Colin totally floored me. He obviously knew what he was going to order for dinner that night.

  3. Have you found a new massage therapist?
