Earlier this week, we marked the autumnal equinox.
“The seasons are marked by solstices and equinoxes — astronomical terms that relate to Earth’s tilt.”

I’ve given up predicting the weather.
Earlier than usual, but then again "winter" started earlier this year too...so maybe we'll have a sunnier fall (whoops, I mean "spring") this year on the Ecuadorian coast.
The “king tides” happen about once or twice a year.
But some things don’t change...even here.
The sun still rises in the east, and still sets in the west, over the Pacific Ocean.
But try finding the Big Dipper on a clear night…or the damn elusive Southern Cross, which I still can’t find/recognize.

Another question that was frequently asked A LOT when we first bought our properties here six years ago, though not asked much anymore – given Ecuador’s extensive exposure in the media lately.
La Rinconada is a small town about twenty minutes north of us – a beautiful area, adjacent to the Machalilla National Park.
