A quiet day! Val went for her usual walk and Tucker and I for ours. I fell asleep so missed the bocce game and heard all about it afterwards!!! I called my brother Gilles later in the afternoon. We had HH then we were to go out for a free dinner that we won but when I went to start the Jeep, the battery was dead; I had left the cooler plugged in and it drained the battery so we had dinner in instead.
Another sunny and warm day; just got to love it! The Park is getting fuller once again, it is Thanksgiving week-end and lots of Americans come down to enjoy the beach and the sun. We went to the Malecon and walked all of it from one end to the other than down to the next street and walked back. We had lunch here then I found and bought a hat and 2 T-shirts. We came home after having a beer at the “Rockodile”, a local club. Lots of Americans family about! We were in time to join the second part of bocce balls. We had HH then we finally made it to “George’s Restaurant where we had a free turkey dinner. We could have had steaks but we both had a craving for turkey which was good so we decided on that. We came home, had a nightcap then to bed
We were up at 6:30 this morning and on the road by seven. We went to the Rancho’s for the flea market and to buy some Cdn bacon but the guy didn’t have this week. We walked around the market but didn’t buy anything. We did have a burrito for brunch then checked out a couple places for mail. There is a place that takes letters and packages to the USA to be mailed there (much faster). We stopped at bakery and bought some apple fritters then to Calimax to buy wine but couldn’t until 10 am so will have to return; one cannot buy booze of any kind before 10 am, it’s the law. We came home, showered and read for a while. It is cloudy today but warm although it was a bit chilly in the desert this morning.
Downtown is very busy due to another ATV race from Mexicali to here through the desert so lots of people and traffic. I called to have our mail forwarded; we found this service that has an address in Calexico and they bring the mail down three times a week. We played a bocce game then called it quit.
Another month gone by...we’ve been gone from BC only a month and a half but it feels much longer!
