It took about an hour and a half to get to the Sam's Club, and then another 40 minutes or so to get to the airport. We all found the Sam's Club to be pretty expensive, although we did pick up a couple of items. We've always thought that Costco and Sam's Club offer a few good deals if you know your prices well, but there's no way it's worth the membership fees to us. Oddly enough, the Walmart was right next door and had much better pricing and selection.

Not really much to see except lots of traffic on the route to the airport. The Pan Am Games are on in Guadalajara just now, so things are a little busier than normal. Sal says it seems like the prices of everything have gone up because of it. Then, when the games are over, prices will probably take some time to drift back down.
We said goodbye to Barb at the airport. We won't see her again until near Christmas time because we will be leaving here a couple of days before she gets back.
Then Sal took a different route back to the lake that took us through the communities of Chapala and Ajijic.
The town of Ajijic is a popular expat community and quite a few Americans and Canadians live there, especially in the winter. The area supposedly has the most stable weather in all of Mexico with temperatures pretty much consistent in the 80's, with a few warmer days in the summer. Of course because of the number of expats, prices tend to reflect their presence. Personally, I'd rather live in a more Mexican community.

Today will be a resting day...nothing special planned. Last night we kept Sal company and watched the Texas Rangers take a 3-2 lead in the World Series. But today is an off day as they travel back to St. Louis to get ready for game 6 on Wednesday night.
