This is actually where we have been parked the last 5 days and I took this just before we left this morning.
Have we seen any danger? Nope. Have we spoken to anybody who has seen any danger? Nope.
Anyhow, we paid his asking price of 50 pesos ($4.20) to empty our tanks and then we drove down the beach road to Playa Zicatela. We had parked at Uncle Eugenio’s for a few days almost two years ago, and he welcomed us again this time. It’s a little busier between Christmas and New Years as many Mexicans are on holiday just now. But, he juggled some cars around we are now nicely set up.
We never asked, but I’m pretty sure Eugenio is letting us park for free, so we don’t mind purchasing some of his beach services. So we splurged 100 pesos ($8.40) on a couple of padded loungers and an umbrella. It was beautiful just sitting and watching the waves roll in and everbody playing in the water. Lots of dogs playing the water too, and some of them sure know how to jump throught the waves.
I’m still not feeling well, so I went back to Sherman after lunch to have a nap. As time went on, my right ear became very painful and now I’m pretty sure I have an ear infection. I don’t get sick very often, so this is driving me nuts. And I don’t like taking pills for anything, but I had to pop a Tylenol 3 this afternoon. I ended up riding my bike looking for a doctors office, but all three that I stopped at were closed. One said to come back at 6:00pm, but by then the Tylenol 3 was doing it’s job and I decided to hold off and see what tomorrow brings. One of the regulars here said to just to to a Farmacia and explain the problem and it will be a lot cheaper, even though the doctor consultation would only cost about 300 pesos ($25.00). Pretty sure I’m going to need some penicillin, but I guess we’ll see.
We had a beatiful blue sky while at the beach, and Alex got a bit of a sunburn again today. He’s going to have to be more careful! But as of about 5pm when we went out to take some photos it had clouded over, and Sherman even felt a couple of raindrops on his roof! It never rains here between November and March. So we have been told.
