But, first I have a food comment to make…
This is why we don’t eat in very many restaurants. We bought these steaks for $9.00 for the two of us. I cooked Ruth’s birthday dinner. It was great. The steaks were perfect, and so tender. We both agreed that a restaurant meal could not have made steak any better than this. Not patting myself on the back (well, I am I guess!) but Ruth had a really good birthday dinner!
Anyway, back to the hike. Whiskey could have done the hike with us, but it was all on cobblestone streets in the city. It’s not really the nicest for walking your dog. There’s not a lot of grass or anything like that. And if we saw a building or something we wanted to go into it was just easier this time to not have Whiskey with us.
It was a fun walk though. The streets are so interesting…cobblestone laid, and only wide enough for one car. Sherman would not have been able to drive on these streets! And very steep! Have a look at this picture…I tried to take it so the doorway was level in the picture so you can see how the car is parked. Better have a good emergency brake!
Made it to the lookout, and the view was worth the effort.
Then on the way back, we stopped in at the other RV park to see how Les was doing. He fed us some orange juice and cookies, and we made arrangements that Les would stop by and visit us this evening.
Back at Sherman, we had some lunch and then I got motivated enough to wash the roof. It’s a big job to scrub the roof, and you’re supposed to do it three or four times a year. I have been negligent the last year, and the job was well overdue. So I just got up there and did it. The roof itself took about an hour and a half and I’m sure that my muscles will remind me of that tomorrow! But when I was done the roof, the rest of Sherman needed a bath too…so I kept on going. I think it was close to 5:00pm by the time I was done. While I was looking after Sherman, Ruth was doing some laundry by hand, and she also defrosted the fridge and freezer.
Ruth made a great Thai Yellow Chicken Curry for dinner, and then Les came over for a visit. We talked about our route and other places to visit along the way. We also told Les about our experiences with http://www.couchsurfing.org/ and http://www.housecarers.com/ because these are such interesting ways to take advantage of inexpensive travel.
We’ve enjoyed San Miguel, but it’s time for a change of scenery. We'll be moving on Monday morning.
