We dropped Whiskey back at Sherman and put the air conditioner on for her. We notice that the seasonal people rarely have their air conditioning running because they have to pay metered electricity and that is very expensive in Mexico. This is why we wanted a daily rate that didn’t include electric. But since there is no special price for that, we are using the electric as much as we want.
Then we went to check out the local area. This trailer park is not on the beach, but the beach is walking distance. Sort of. We wanted to head down to the road that runs closest to the beach, but even that wasn’t easy to find so we walked the mile or so to the Walmart. Didn’t see anything along the way that looked like a decent spot for Sherman. What we’re looking for is maybe a restaurant or hotel that has a secure parking area that Sherman would fit into where we could pay them to let us park there overnight.
So we went into Walmart, did a big grocery shop, and took a taxi (50 pesos, $4.20) back to Sherman.
By this time it was around noon, and I went and paid for one more night. The french woman says “only one?” and I asked about the internet again. She just shook her head. I said “yes, only one”. We had originally told her we were looking to spend five nights here. And we still may, but tomorrow morning we are going for a walk in the other direction and might come across something.
After lunch, we just lazed around and read. We did go for a dip in the swimming pool and that was enjoyably refreshing.
We had bought some t-bone steaks at Walmart and made them for dinner. They were a little tough, and we should know to stick with rib eye’s because we always have good luck with them. Paid 72 pesos ($6.00) for the two of them, but the rib eye’s would have been only slightly more.
We used our cellular internet stick along with Skype to call our daughter Lindsey and then my Mom and Ruth's Dad. We had read that this uses lots of bandwidth and that the connection wouldn't be good and that's why we hadn't tried it up until now. But for us, it worked perfectly and didn't use nearly the bandwidth we had expected. This will probably only work well when we have a 3G connection using the stick. When we are in less populated areas, we can only connect using the older EDGE network and it's quite a bit slower.
