From The Editor's Desk 

Happy Friday!

The weather has continued to be fantastic in Sayulita. Nice, cool mornings and evenings and warm afternoons. Honestly, we couldn't ask for better weather.

Festival Sayulita wrapped up earlier this week and was definitely a fun filled week. If you missed it this year, you don't want to miss Festival Sayulita 2017. 

I often receive emails from El Sayulero readers inquiring as to where to purchase
SayulitaLife.com stickers. So, I'm happy to announce that Stand Up Paddle Mexico now has these stickers for sale. 

Thank you for reading this edition of El Sayulero!

PET OF THE WEEK



Hola, my name is Leander. I was very badly hurt and lying on the side of the road. Someone felt sorry for me and helped me up. My leg was in such bad shape that it needed to be amputated. But that's okay, I can walk around just fine. I'm just a small, shy guy and love to be loved. I like other dogs and cats and kids and everybody really. I'm looking for a home. Please let me stay with you.Contact SayulitAnimals here
