March 17 to 21 2016; Explore and Semana Sante begins

MAR 16, Wednesday;
Cycling and Yoga for us again this morning.  We went to check-out a new restaurant/Pub in town that claims to make their own brew but when we got there, the draft/brew was not available as they had run out on opening day yesterday.  We had a hamburger that tasted good.  Came home and had a snooze before going hunting/searching for a HH event.  We found one with about 18 people, some that we knew, and joined them.  They played charade but I abstained.  There were many laughs, for sure.  We got home at 9 pm.  We ate at the HH as they had food galore.


MAR 17, THURSDAY; Happy ST-PATRICK Day
Cycling for me and pickle ball for Val and I even tried it for one game.  Another hot day and a few more RV’s leaving this morning.  This was a good day to read and siesta.  HH was at Dennis and Marilyn with Joyce and Bill.


MAR 18, FRIDAY:
Val went to Tai-Chi and cycling for me.  Another hot day but muggy too.  For dinner, we went to LA GREIGA restaurant and had a marvelous dinner with live music behind us.  My Ribeye steak was delicious and cooked to perfection.  We sat there for quite a while watching the sunset with a glass of wine.  We came home and sat out before calling a night!


MAR 19, Saturday; Exploring
I am ready to leave this place!  More and more people are getting out of Dodge before Semana Santa (Holy week/Easter).  We lost another neighbour and another one is leaving Monday.  I am looking forward of hitting the road on April 2.
We left at 11am to explore an area we were told about.  We went through Guaymas and stopped at a pharmacy to buy some baby aspiring then continued to through Empalme to Hwy 15 south.  We soon reached the turn-off to ORTIS and headed North.  We passed a town then continued but never saw any sign for Ortis, just some villages and Hermosillo so we decided that maybe we were supposed to turn at a road we saw back there.  We turned around and took the turn and found ourselves in farm land.  We eventually got a small village then decided that we didn’t know where we were going to went back to Empalme.  That will teach me to bring the blooming map with me.   The GPS was no use to us.  We stopped at a roadside restaurant and had lunch then to Empalme where we bought two kilos of big shrimps then came home.
HH at Bill and Joyce then home.  On our way home from Empalme we passed a Caravan with Quebec license plates and soon after we got home, they arrived here; 28 of them total from Puerto Vallarta.  The park is now full as another small caravan also arrived just before them.


MAR 20, PALM SUNDAY and SEMANA SANTE begins
Sunny and hot already at 10 am.  Val decided to thaw and clean the freezer and the fridge then we were allowed to relax.  We walked around the park and to the beach, lots of traffic on the road and the beach, we read and I had a snooze.  At 6:15 pm we went over to Dennis and Marilyn then walked to Arboritos for dinner with them as this is their last night here.  They are headed north, eventually home in Whitecourt, Alberta.  The meal was excellent, the place was full and noisy and we had a nice time.  We came home, said our goodbyes and called it a night


MAR 21, MONDAY; First day of Spring
Back to the routine, Val to Yoga and cycling for me.  The forecast is for 31*C today.  WOW!  Our neighbour Eli and Marianne left this morning, going home to Vancouver Island.  The power kept going off because of all the A/C running, very frustrating.  At one point I had the generator on just so we could have constant power. Temperature reached 39* C in the sun; HOT, HOT, HOT!
