Hi Everyone,

Well as most of you know by now Lake Chapala – Ajijic Mexico has year around spring like weather. But, the weather is not boring for lack of seasons. We still have summer, winter and fall, but they’re just not as severe as most other places on the planet.

Our rainy season is just getting started here now. But, don’t disrepair if you get blue or sad in rainy overcast weather. There is some of that and that’s a blessing to those who don’t dislike this type of weather. I know people who actually prefer this type of weather.

Last December we had an unusually cold December for us at least,  and the stores did a good business selling small space heaters, but then all at once it was over. Everything returned to our usual mild weather with mostly sunny days.

Summer time is our rainy season, but it usually just rains at night and has cleared off shortly after sunrise. So, I tell people we get to get up to a “freshly washed morning”…  and the smell of blooming roses if you have them in your garden as I do. I enjoy my garden from my terrace where I sip my morning coffee, watch the birds playing, and giving my little “little buddy” some exercise. His name is CuCo and he’s a small terrier who loves to play fetch with the rawhide bones I buy at the local pet supply places.

Now, take a look at the below video produced by my friend, “Happy Jackson” who regularly documents the beauty, tranquility and peace of Lake Chapala-Ajijic Mexico.   All for now, Tu amigo, Sid

***** 5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT SNAPSHOT OF THE LAKE CHAPALA AREA!!!!, March 16, 2014

This review is from: How to Live A Caviar Lifestyle on a Tuna Fish Pension At Safe, Beautiful & Affordable Lake Chapala, Mexico

My wife Carrie and I will be retiring in a few years and are seriously considering relocating to either Mexico or Central America. We currently live in the Dallas, Texas area are looking to escape the hot summers, the fast pace of life and the high cost of living. While searching the internet, I stumbled across Sid Grosvenor’s “Chapala Club” web site and became very interested in looking at the Lake Chapala area as a potential retirement location. Sid retired from the Dallas Police Dept. and since I will be retiring form the Texas State DPS in a few years, I e-mailed Sid directly. Sid took the time to respond to every e-mail I sent him and candidly answered dozens of questions my wife and I had about the Lake Chapala area. Although we have never met, I can tell from our e-mails that Sid has a positive personality and genuinely loves the Lake Chapala area and its people. We ordered Sid’s book online from Amazon and it arrived in a couple of days. My wife read the book two times before she would let me have a crack at it…She loved it and told me Lake Chapala was definitely on our short list of places to check out. When I finally got to read Sid’s book myself, I found it to be very informative and it provided the answers to many questions that Sid had graciously answered in my e-mails to him. The book is an easy read and helps you understand the pros and cons of the Lake Chapala area. Reading the book is like having an informative conversation with a friend. We will be traveling to Lake Chapala in the not too distant future and look forward to meeting Sid in person.Hank & Carrie Sibley
