The sun always shines somewhere… like this shot taken by our Canadian friend, Dennis Goff, who lives part of the winter in Cotacachi Ecuador and recently visited Ecuador’s coast with us.
I suspect that it is the cold winters in Canada that bring so many Canadians to Ecuador.
Merri and I are currently in Florida looking (unsuccessfully so far) for real estate. We head north tomorrow. Here is what our friend and farm manager Richard Goebel wrote:
“Are you sure you want to be up here next week? Here is Ray’s forecast for Monday next week This is not an April Fool’s trick.”
Monday – Mostly cloudy; Windy; Early AM showers; Turning colder with snow showers late afternoon & at night; High in the lower 50s; Low in the mid 20s
Tuesday – Mostly cloudy; Cold; Blustery; Snow showers & flurries; High in the upper 30s; Low in the lower 20s
In other words, when Merri and I arrive in North Carolina our front yard could look something like this.
One must wonder… why? We could be back in Ecuador where there is never snow and one has a choice of climates. For example in Cotacachi nearly every day it’s in the 70s and at night 50s.
By dropping altitude a bit for example to Ibarra, the temperature is warmer. Cotacachi is at at about 7,500 feet altitude, Ibarra about 6,500 feet.
Instead of looking at the snow, I could be looking at sunshine and property near Ibarra like this Ecuador real estate for sale that we viewed on our last real estate tour…
This is an income opportunity, a 21.39 acre estate with an executive golf course, pitching and putting, 6 greens on a 5 acre area. It has six cabins. Here is our last real estate tour…
taking a look at…
Here they are…
They are in good shape…
clean and with…
overlooking wonderful gardens.
There is a full restaurant inside and …
plus a two bedroom, one bathroom house.
This property was one the market at one time at a price that was too high. Now the owner has adjusted it down to a realistic price and I am sending a full report to my Ecuador Living subscribers next week. If you are not a subscriber and would like this report, you can learn how to subscribe to Ecuador Living here.
We look forward to sharing more ideas about Ecuador, value anywhere and hope that until next message may all your connections be linked in reality and truth.
