#39 "Back to Boquita Beach", watercolor, 22" x 15"
On this snowy, cold day in March (yet) I desire to return to Mexico. Boquita Beach is the beach very near our casa where we walk and sit and nap and swim and order goodies from the palapa beach bars. You can rent an umbrella with table and chairs for 60 pesos (around $4.00 these days....or a little less) and spend the day surrounded by Mexican families. Many bring coolers full of food and drink, and maybe a boom box playing the ever present musica of Mexico. Many aunts and uncles and grandmas and kids and grandkids gather around to laugh and talk and play the day away. Lots of talking and laughing. Do we do that with our families? The Ray for the Day is "Back to Boquita Beach."
