When I was ready to go outside, I stepped out onto the mat to put my sandals on…and they weren’t there! That will teach me not to leave them outside. I guessed that some local obviously needed them more than I did!
Everybody loves Whiskey. When we go for walks a lot of people mention how cute she is, and of course most of the Mexicans are surprised just to see a dog on a leash. And when they find out she will be fifteen years old in April, they are really surprised. I would doubt that most Mexican dogs see those kind of years. And Whiskey has long hair whereas almost all local dogs are short haired. There aren’t that many dogs around the resort areas though, so when we saw four almost identical looking dogs cross through the campground this morning, we were a bit surprised. One of them came a bit closer and was interested in Whiskey, wagging it’s tail like crazy but it was pretty shy and couldn’t get up the nerve to come closer. It eventually wandered off with it’s friends. When we were walking on the road the other day, a van drove by and the guy yells out the window “Whiskey”…with a big laugh and a wave. Too funny.
Paul and Rosemary wandered by our site the other day. They are from Brampton, Ontario and are staying at the Barcelo resort next door. They were just out for a walk and stopped by to talk about how we ended up down here in a motorhome. We bumped into them on the beach today and they invited us over to the lobby for a drink this evening. Apparently guests are welcome in the lobby, so I guess we’ll see how that goes.
Today saw some clouds, and it almost looked overcast at one point! I checked the weather and it actually said a 20% chance of rain. It NEVER rains here between December and March, and I don’t think it will this time either.
Spent the rest of the afternoon reading. Whiskey got up enough ambition to chase a squirrel at one point, but otherwise we were coasting through the day.
Around 8:30pm, we walked over to meet Paul and Rosemary. Had no problem ordering a couple of drinks with them, and nobody questioned a thing even though we didn’t have Barcelo wristbands on. Interesting. So we sat in the lobby and enjoyed chatting for a couple of hours. They go back to the cold tomorrow.
Heading back to Sherman, we almost trip over one of my sandals as were walking along the entranceway. We'll maybe come across the other one tomorrow. We're thinking maybe the dogs that passed through were the culprits?
Forgot to take many pictures today. So you’ll have to be happy with a flowery bush, and a termite nest!
