I Saved the Bay!

Wow, I'm fast. On my way to buy the aforementioned t-shirt I ran into a couple friends who told me the powers that be declared they no longer plan to put the pier in Zihuatanejo Bay.


Phew! Good thing I bought my shirt. I doubt they'll make any more after this.

Apparently they plan to put the pier on the other side of the bay at Playa Larga. It's closer to the airport and further from downtown so I'm not sure how that will affect the tourists the city hopes to bring in with this new structure. They'll have to build up that area to accommodate extra people, as well as set up some kind of shuttle and improve the roads.

I'm just happy the city listened to the people!

Side Note: That's my computer, etc, behind me if you've been at all curious what my workstation looks like.

Yay, congrats!!!

I also live in a tourist destination and I hate how they keeping trying to make it bigger. It's nice when things stay as they are.

Hey, does this mean no XXL shirts left for me! Darn

Melanie Avila said...

Nope, they didn't have very many left. Sorry.

Just because Dad can't get one, doesn't mean your Mom wouldn't like one!

Melanie Avila said...

Well why didn't you say anything? I'll go see if they have any more. Email me your size.

I love the conversation btw you, your Mom and Dad. I can really see you all talking... ;)

I do like your shelves set up. I'm trying to get Brad to put something like that together for us, but a free-standing shelf will have to do...for now.

Cheers!
