|LAST KAYAKING OF THE DAY FOR JAMES GREGOR|
|VULTURES AT COMPOST|
|GOOD LOOKING COUPLE LOOKING FOR THEIR BABIES|
chickens pecking with their chicks in front of small, cement houses, strutting roosters with glossy black tail feathers, quick lizards, quiet horses,
a hobbled, braying burro, black iguanas sunning themselves on large grey rocks, palm-thatched palapas, and green parrots squawking as they fly back and forth between high trees.
|SUNNING IGUANA NEXT TO THE TRAIL|
Cement houses and wood bungalows are left behind. We cross the low river twice, the climb becomes steeper until we reach a rocky plateau and see the winding river and the cascade leaping out a mighty wall of rock far below us. Climbing down steps carved out of the stone, we reach the large natural pool below the cascade. The force of the water after the rains makes it impossible to stand under it, so we let the cascade propel us over and over to the opposite part of the pool.
|CASCADE FROM AN OPPOSITE CLIFF|
At night in our palapa at Hotel Lagunita, fireflies spark in the jungle and the only sounds are the electric buzzes of mating cicadas and the hush of waves on the shore.
IXTAPA. Part of the municipality of Puerto Vallarta, Ixtapa is about a 30- minute drive northeast of central Vallarta. It´s a place one passes through when driving up to las Palmas or San Sebastián in the foothills of the Sierra Madres. “Ixtapa” is a Nahual (indigenous tribe) name. In the Nahual language, all words ending in “apa” refer to “river” and “iztatl” means “salt.” The spelling of the last word was imposed by the Spaniards, who didn´t have “x” in their alphabet. The meaning of “Ixtapa” is easy to arrive at … “salty river.”
The clinic in Ixtapa took place in the spacious Salon de Usos Múltiples (“Multi-Purpose Salon”). Interesting that there are no doors or bathroom, but there is a security guard and plenty of bushes

LEAVE OF LEAVE OF ABSENCE: Paulina Stettner, vet tech and director of PEACEAnimals, leaves for Guadalajara Sunday morning, returning to Vallarta and the clinics in October. Paulina has a very loving hand and heart for the animals and will be missed. Dr. Jemina, Dr. Anthony´s girlfriend, has been given clinic training by Paulina. Jemina received her veterinarian license two years ago, has volunteered her services many times at our clinics and will do a great job. Anthony will enjoy having her by his side.
