Saw one nice home with a for sale sign and a guy outside washing his van. Stopped to say hi, and was soon invited in for a chat. Eric and Trudy are from British Columbia (as are most people down here, I don't think there's anybody left in BC!) and feel they are getting on in years so have listed their place at $250,000. It's interesting the disparity between what are obviously Canadian homes and the rest of the homes of the people who are native to the area. I'm sure there is a disparity in price as well! But, they have a beautiful spot on a large property.
Ruth, with Trudy and Eric's little puppy. He sure was a friendly little guy!
Phone number and email if you're interested, or you could email Eric directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Eric sent us an interesting email in the afternoon. Remember that old deserted hotel from yesterday? Turns out it had been built in 1986 and was almost finished when an earthquake struck the area and it was structurally damaged. It was supposed to be demolished a couple of years ago, but for whatever reason that never happened. This email informed us that the demolition was going to take place at 6:00pm yesterday! They were going to blow it up!
This sounded fairly exciting, so just after 5:00pm we walked (with a bunch of other people) closer to the old hotel. Grabbed a seat on a log, and waited.
Everyone coming to watch the building blow up!
6:00pm came and went. Soon after, the sun was setting, and we decided to walk back because it looked like nothing was happening. All of a sudden, we heard an explosion, and I managed to get a couple of pics...
But that was as far as it went! It was a little more crooked, but it never fell down! Maybe they need to hire someone from Al-Qaeda to blow it up!
So that was out fun for the day. On other news, our daughter Lindsey and grandson Cameron have booked their flight to Mexico. Son in law Justin will be staying in Canada for work. Lindsey and Cameron arrive in Acapulco January 18 and will be spending 3 weeks with us! Very excited about that!
We're heading out of here today...no idea where we'll end up for the night, so stay tuned...
