The roosters woke us up around 5:30am yesterday, so we got up around 6:30am. Another day in paradise, and we don’t have any real plans for the day. First on the agenda was to find a laundramat and then internet.
The lady who owns the restaurant where we are parked pointed us towards the lavanderia. It’s a little pricey at 18 pesos per kilo (normally between 11 and 13), but they appear to be the only laundry in town. So we sorted out the necessities and dropped it off. It weighed 5 kilos so it will cost 90 pesos ($6.84). Still not too bad considering it’s all washed, dried, and folded! We can pick it up this morning.
Then, we found a coffee shop a block away that has internet. So we carried the laptops over there and had an orange juice each while using the net.
Afterwards, we went for a walk on the beach.
We came across this girl having the photography done for her quinceanera.
While having lunch, the fruit and vegetable truck came by. This guy carries everything, from avocados to zuccini, and everything in between including eggs. His prices were a little higher than normal, but the produce looked good so we stocked up on a few things just out of convenience.

As Ruth was paying for the vegetables, a guy on a bike rides up and says “Are you Kevin and Ruth?” Too funny, we got to meet another blog reader. Marty says that he hasn’t actually read the blog since Christmas so he didn’t know that we were here, but he recognized
. Marty and his wife Debi are just finishing building a house here at Playa Troncones and said we should stop by and see it. We were planning on a bike ride yesterday afternoon anyhow, and their place was along the way. Sherman
We relaxed in the shade for a couple of hours watching the waves. I had a nap in the hammock. I think I’ll do that again today!
Not a bad place for a nap!
From my point of view...can you tell I am missing shoveling snow and scraping the windshield?
Then we rode our bikes over to Marty and Debi’s place and chatted with them for the rest of the afternoon.

Beautiful sunset last night!
