“Siempre Mejor” or “Always Better

A proactive expression, whether you are applying it to your environment, home or health, we can “always make things better”! And that’s what my intention was when my longtime friend, Tucker Comisar Hering, met me in San Diego last Saturday to experience Rancho La Puerta’s amazing retreat just inside the Baja Mexican border. Tuckie hadn’t been to the Ranch in 30 years but her heartstrings kept pulling her return. She mentioned the trip in December and by end of month we were booked! What a wonderful break and retreat for both us to renew our souls and wake up our aging bodies!

Rancho La Puerta’s 4,000 acres include 32 acres of gardens, hiking trails,
an organic farm, several swimming pools, extensive spa and fitness facilities, individual casitas for guests, Villa’s for families, a large dining hall, gift shops, tennis courts, and now “Pickle Ball Courts”!

Family-owned and operated since June 1940, when the first guests arrived at a beautiful Baja California campsite created by Edmond Szekely and his young wife Deborah, Rancho La Puerta has been changing lives now for over 75 years.
Deborah, 97 years old and pictured with Tucker, still lectures weekly and is hard at work on her many projects to spread the word about American’s need to live a healthier more-active lifestyle that is also supported by a protected, chemical-free environment.


Of course, I took a lot of photos and wanted to share with you these 4 slideshows.
Many memories were made and meeting wonderful staff , talented presenters, and
repeat guests will always be treasured….
Thank you, Brooke, Barry Patrick, Brice & Natalie, Bonnie O, and photo bug Patricia for sharing.

    Looks so beautiful! I have to take more retreat type time offs, rather than activity filled time off’s, which just leave you tired.
