Happy 2016! The beginning of the year has brought the perfect weather. There's a crispness in the mornings and in the evenings, and the days bring sunshine and warm temperatures. For me, it's the best of both worlds. 

The monthly Nayarit garbage clean-up resumes tomorrow, Saturday, January 9th. It will only take about an hour of your time and makes a huge difference in keeping Sayulita clean. If you want to help out, meet at El Break Cafe at 9:00 a.m.

Festival Sayulita is quickly approaching and will be held from Wednesday, January 27th through Sunday, January 31st. Volunteers are still needed, and if you'd like to help out, please contact Lina Weissman at linaweissman@gmail.com  

Thank you for reading this edition of El Sayulero!

TARGET SHOOTING WITH
ARCHERY EXPERIENCE MEXICO


Photo by Camilla Fuchs with Camilla Fuchs Photography

It was a sunny day, with a refreshing cool breeze, and I was at Archery Experience Mexico in Higuera Blanca, just a short 10-minute drive from Sayulita, with a group of friends. I hadn’t shot a bow and arrow since I was a child, so I was excited to get started as Chris Ostrowski, the owner, went over the parts of the recurve bow and arrows. As we strapped on our arm guards and headed outdoors to the target area, one friend commented how she found the arm guards “sexy,” as another friend strapped his guard on and kissed his bicep in agreement. Read More

SAYULITAS POWER CONUNDRUM

 


As most Sayulitians know and visitors learn quickly, Sayulita has many continuing power changes that come without warning. The power changes come as brown-outs (low power, your bulbs look dim), or as spikes in the power line. Spikes can, and usually come, after a brown-out or when we lose power here in Sayulita completely and then it comes back on and off rapidly. Read More

PET OF THE WEEK



Hi. My name is Luis. I got rescued just a little while ago from the highway where I just lay by the side, waiting for someone to help me. I am very friendly and get on fine with other dogs. I'm a smallish Shepherd mix, or so they say. I have never had a real home, but I am so ready for one. If you are looking for a dog like me, then please choose me!
