A very cloudy and humid day greeted us this morning. It was quite unexpected! Val went for her Tai-Chi and took the truck in case it rains. The Tates are beginning to load and store their stuff and getting ready to go, they are leaving on the 1st. The Kirkby’s are leaving on the 5th and we are leaving on the 12th of March.
The sun came out in the afternoon as suspected and it warmed some but the wind is from the sea hence cool. We went to El Cheque for a couple of hot dogs and a coke then came home. Val went for a beach walk with Tucker and the girls. After Happy H, Val invited Bill and Joyce to share our BBQ’ed steaks and shrimps. Val made a salad, Joyce brought over sprucell sprouts which were delicious the way she prepared them and we had a lovely evening.
FEB 28, Tuesday
Almost the end of another wonderful month; warm and sunny again today! We walked to Tony’s and back for some veggies then just sat around and relaxed. I am getting tired of relaxing, time to move on!!!! Val made a spaghetti sauce for tonight but we ended up at “Charlie’s Rock” for a drink and a bite to eat (all you can eat fish and chips for 100 pesos (approx $8 Cdn), I had two helping, Oink! Oink! Came home and watched a movie then to bed.
FEB 29, Wednesday, Farewell for the Tate’s
Some high clouds this morning but very nice temperature! The Tate’s are all loaded up and waiting to move on the street later this afternoon. That’s a usual ritual when people leave early the following morning. This way, one is ready to go with no hassles in the morning. Val and I went to Rosa Cantina for tortilla soup, her favourite then we came home and she got food ready for the farewell gathering happening here at 4:30pm.
And so the party began right on time. Everyone showed up and we had a great meal and lots of fun. After dinner, we had a big fire and burned the last of the firewood. We also learned from Craig, Manfred and Bill, who were in Obregon today, that the truck was almost stripped; the headlights, tail lights, batteries, fenders, running boards, all the decals, tailgate had been removed. They were also in the process of removing the box at the back and the hitch but fortunately, never completed that. The truck is now at the GM dealership in Guaymas. The inside is OK except for the damage ignition and door lock which they popped. The insurance paid for the transport back. They figure a month to two months before it is ready to go.
Anyway, on a lighter note, our neighbours came home today and had our wine and distilled water that we had ordered. They joined us at the fire. Everyone from the lot, left around 9 pm and we continued on. Val and Pat went inside to watch SURVIVOR! We said our final goodbyes to Rick and Pat and hit the bed around 11 pm.
