Anne and Tony surprised us with photos of the interior of our Agua Viva home posted on Club Loreto Bay. If you recall, we only got exterior photos of our home in the progress report we received this week.

Up until now, I’ve referred to our home as AV25 (phase and lot number in the development), but somehow, seeing this set of photos for the first time, I’m compelled to start referring to it as Casa del Lagarto Azul, a name we picked in November last year.

When I first saw these photos, I finally experienced first-hand a little of what I have observed from other homeowners who finally reach construction completion. It is a sheer sense of happiness and elation that your little casa is…well your little casa of dreams and possibilities.

Clint is already imagining us on the top viewing tower, basking under the blue Loreto skies and writing our first blog entry in our new Loreto Baja home. I imagine myself smiling and twirling around in a white sun dress on the terrace…don’t know why, just because.

Of course my pragmatic side does kick in with interjections — brief moments of noting I need to figure out how to get Perma-chink down there and insurance and….

Oh, but the twirling up on the terrace will be fun. Will I actually twirl, I don’t know. But isn’t it wonderful our little Casa del Lagarto Azul has inspired such thoughts already?

Only the beginning my friends…only the beginning :-).
