Greetings to our 8,194 subscribers,  

Good Morning SayulitaGood morning Sayulita! This photo to the right was taken early this morning as surfers and stand up paddleboarders assess the waves before jumping in the water! Surfers have said the waves this past week have been some of the best they have seen in years. Surfers have been enjoying incredible surf breaks on both the right and left side of the Sayulita rivermouth. The days are certainly much longer in Sayulita with sunsets at approximately 8:30 PM. There is plenty of sunlight to enjoy more time on the beach during the Spring season in Sayulita. I'm sure everyone in Sayulita is enjoying more beach time, perfect weather and perfect waves!

Sayulitanimals: Water, Water Everywhere
But Where's a Drop to Drink?
 By Donna Evans for Sayulitanimals

Sayulita's street dogs are pretty independent, but that doesn't mean we can't help them with their basic needs -- one of which is water. River and Diamond Jameson, part-time residents of Sayulita, have started a projected they are calling, "Fresh Water for Dogs." The Jameson's purchased 20 metal water bowls which can be attached to outdoor water faucets so the dogs will know where to go to get fresh water. More


Los perros callejeros de Sayulita son muy independientes, pero eso no significa que no podemos ayudarlos con sus necesidades básicas, como el agua. River y Diamond Jameson, residentes temporales en Sayulita comenzaron un proyecto que se llama "Agua Pura Para Los Perros". Los Jameson compraron 20 tazones para el agua que se pueden colocar a las llaves de agua exteriores para que los perros sepan bien donde ir para tomar agua fresca. Mas

Pet of the Week:  "Minnie"   



I'm Minnie, an affectionate Calico kitten looking for a forever home. I was found hiding in the undercarriage of a car alone, distressed and hungry. It doesn't take me long to come out of my shell and, when I do, my charm shines through. My foster parents are besotted with me, but they have to return to the UK in a couple of weeks and I'm too young to go through the long-haul flight and quarantine. I'm about three months old, house-trained, de-wormed and de-flead. Even though I'm small in stature, I'm big in personality. Can you give me a home? Let my friends at SayulitAnimals know if you are interested in me!
