We were on the go by 10 am this morning. We, Pat, Rick, Val and I, loaded the kayaks, some snacks and beer and went to Esmeralda Beach for a few hours. We met the Lot people there and everyone went for a paddle around the point then came back. The wind picked up and made the ride back quite rough for everyone. Steve, Manfred and Craig fished for a while but no success there. The four decided to go for a bite to eat so we left everyone, loaded our gears and headed for THE EDGE for hamburger and beer. We were home by 3 pm. The rest of our gang had gone to a beach south of Empalme and got home around 5:30 pm. We had a quick Happy Hour then it was dinner. NO fire tonight.
JAN 30, Monday, haircut for me and Tucker
Val went for her Tai-Chi and I took Tucker for a haircut then went to MARU where I had a haircut. After Val’s shower, we went shopping to TONY then Santa Rosa and found “Franzia red wine” which we bought 6 boxes; a rare commodity here in Mexico! In the afternoon, a local mechanic came to see Al’s Tracker as he had problems with his water pump and Lynden and I made arrangements to have our brakes done. Leo thought it was a good idea and got his Tracker in the mix so tomorrow, the three of us are going to have our brakes done. As far as we can figure, it will be around $250 Cdn which is excellent!! Happy hour was as usual then dinner. No fire tonight!
JAN 31, Tuesday, brake job on the “Beast”
Three of us left at 9 am to take our trucks to the local garage to have our brakes done. Al follows us in his jeep. We went to Santa Rosa for breakfast and the girls met us there. We walked back home and Val started the laundry. It is going to be a hot one...27*C at 11 am!
At 4 pm, we had our Happy Hour for about an hour then everyone went in to get ready. We walked over to the Chinese Restaurant just outside our Park and met the “Lot” people. Today is Al’s birthday...66 yrs young! We had an excellent celebration and a very good Chinese gourmet meal. Al even got to dance with the waitress and, for a while, we had live entertainment thanks to a Mexican guitar player. We came home around 8 pm and found our vehicles parked in their usual spot so the guys brought them back while we were gone; no keys left behind though! We had a fire and I was in bed by 10 pm.
A good way to end the first month of the year 2012! Uploaded pictures in Picasa.
