Will you please tell us your name and a little bit about yourselves?
We are Sandy and Jim Redmond (owners of Casa Compadres in Sayulita). We spend about 6 months in Sayulita and the rest in the Seattle area, where we live on our boat and cruise in Washington and British Columbia.
With the construction of the new Sayulita Boulevard, the main entrance to town is closed. Fortunately, there are alternate routes available to make travel to and from town possible. Please make note that some roads are now one-way.

In my last column I promised you Coconut Shrimp! This is a very delicious dish that you can make for company or for that very special someone in Sayulita. We have a great swimming pool here in Sayulita and my husband worked very hard all day in the hot sun replacing some broken tiles. I thought that he deserved a yummy dinner, so since coconut shrimp is one of his favorites, coconut shrimp it was!
My name is Duke and I'm a very beautiful Shepherd mix. I walked around and made myself comfortable in a house. Because the family already has 2 dogs and cats, they don't want to keep me. I'm friendly, calm, and simply lovely. I'm medium in size and would really like to find a good home where I'm 100% welcome. Would that be with you?
