November 17 to 20, 2013; San Felipe and the "Day of the Revolution"

NOV  17, Sunday, San Felipe, Baja Mexico
It is a bit cooler this morning and the wind has picked up but the sun is shining!  Val went for a long walk with Charlotte so that made her happy.  Rudiger moved his rig to this side and then I helped him set up his satellite dish.  We watched a Mexican fisherman having his truck pulled out of the sea; he was stuck halfway in.  Good thing the tide was going out! I straighten my window awning; all it needs now is new grommets or bolts to hold it in place.  There were no other damages, thank goodness!  This was a relaxing day, not much to report.  HH with our friends then a fish dinner that I bought today from a vendor.

NOV  18, Monday,
We were supposed to go to the Malecon to watch a parade but were told this morning that it is actually Wednesday the 20th (Day of Revolution).  Val and Charlotte went for a long walk this morning again.  My awning was fixed this morning; they replaced both tie downs that were snapped off.  We played bocce ball in the afternoon with Rudiger, Charlotte, Bob and Pete (both single men).  It was a tie!  We went for a walk on the beach with Tucker then came back for HH.  Not much else to report. 

NOV  19, Tuesday,
The usual walks for the morning then we went to town with Rudiger and Charlotte to buy some groceries and a broom for us.  We had lunch at a small roadside kiosk consisting of shredded meat tacos and a bowl of soup which was quite spicy.  We came home and were going to play bocce balls but Val hurt her wrist yesterday so that was cancelled.  Instead, I laid down in our hammock and fell asleep for an hour or so then I read.  We had new people join us for HH, friends of R & C, whom got in today.  Dinner consisted of pork chops, veggies, potatoes and yam with carrots mixed.  We watched the tube in the evening.  We’ve been here a week now; time flies!

NOV  20, Wednesday; Parade
We walked to the “Malecon” (waterfront) and watched the “Day of the Revolution Parade”.  The whole town was out to watch and the parade was quite long and lots of speeches.  The Army and the Navy were also represented in the Parade.  We walked up the main street and had a couple of tacos then came home.  After a short rest, we played another game of Bocce Balls and we won; nothing unusual there!  New people have arrived, all friends of everyone here.  I am told that we presently have the usual winter crowd except for maybe two more rig but they not sure they are coming this year.
This Park has 28 spots and 10 of them are taken so far.  We had some bikers here for a couple nights but they are now gone and the folks from South Africa also left this morning.  HH with the usual crowd then dinner and we watched “Survivors”.
