|SUNDAY BRUNCH AT LA PALAPA ON LOS MUERTO BEACH|
|LOS MUERTOS BEACH LOOKING SOUTH FROM LA PALAPA|
Some say that Los Muertos (“the dead”) beach was named because of a battle between the Indians and the Spaniards. Others say that it because of drownings. Our housekeeper´s cousin who came for a visit from Talpa a few years ago, drank too much one night , went for a swim and drowned. A more likely explanation for the name of this beach is that long ago, a cemetery existed nearby. There is a beach in Sayulita named los Muertos, and a cemetery is very close to it. The bay is almost always very calm here for swimming and the beach is crowded, especially on Sundays, when locals go with their families. La Palapa restaurant is a pleasant place to sit under an umbrella and enjoy brunch or lunch and then a swim. Beach vendors are required to dress all in white, which prohibits the Huichol Indians from wearing their beautifully embroidered shirts and pants. Vendors, and there are many, politely ask lunchers and beach goers if they would like to buy their wares – silver jewelry, blankets, pareos, sombreros, hammocks, Huichol beaded jewelry and wonderful, patterned handwoven bags adorned with pom poms , etc. The “sail” on the newish pier looks great, especially at night, even though the lights that slowly change the colors aren´t working perfectly anymore.

|“SPIRIT” AFTER A BATH|
THE DOG THAT DIED: “Spirit,“ who fought so hard to live, died on Wednesday. Three months ago, the young brown male Cocker mix had been lying for three days on a steep incline next to a dirt road. PEACEAnimals board members, Brischa and Ted Borchgrevink, were e-mailed about the dog and its location and found him curled up in the area that had been described. His hair was matted and he was filthy, emaciated and dehydrated. His tail and one of his legs were fractured or broken and he had tumors on his genitals. Taken immediately to Dr. Peña´s clinic, the rescued dog was diagnosed with TVT (transmissible venereal tumor), erlichia, anaplasma and fractures, the result of having been hit by a car at least once. Days later, Brischa and Ted named this broken dog “Spirit,” because Dr. Peña said the dog had the will to live. Spirit went home with Brischa and Ted. His broken leg and tail and spirit mended. Money was raised to pay for his vet expenses, including the chemo, which is so often and inexpensively successful in destroying malignant tumors. Spirit ate well, was bathed regularly, ran and played with Brishca´s and Ted´s other dogs, swam in the pool, got pats and rubs and was loved. On Wednesday after eating lunch, Spirit had a bath, was rubbed dry, cuddled, wagged his tail and lay down for a nap. Under the bright sunlight and cloudless skies, Spirit closed his eyes and stopped breathing. He had been able to survive everything but the chemo. Spirit was buried that night in the hills behind Brischa´s and Ted´s home with a ball that he had liked to play with there.
