But, only for a half an hour or so. Just enough to make the grass stay green for a few days longer!
But it sure did come down for a few minutes!
Ruth made some gluten free bread and buns the other morning. Sure does smell good in the motorhome with fresh bread baking in the oven. She sets some of the dough aside and puts it in a couple of small pie tins to make some hamburger buns for herself.
We've had two more campers show up. Jergen and Linda came down in their little VW van, but they're renting Barb and Sal's newer fifth wheel for their stay here to be a little more comfortable than staying in their VW. And Don showed up with his 40ft motorhome and tow vehicle. What a rig! Not something I would want to be driving around Mexico, but it proves that you can get around in anything if you want to.
Maybe related to the storm clouds we've had, but the power was on and off yesterday. Sometimes it was off at the campground, and then sometimes it was off in town. We decided to go into town for dinner so that Sal could have a decent Thanksgiving meal, so Don came with us and we went in to Chema's restaurant because he normally does pozole ( a type of soup/stew) on Thursdays. But when we arrived, there was no power. That didn't stop them though, and soon we had candles on the table!
However, because of the lack of power, they hadn't made any pozole. As we were ordering our drinks, the lights came back on! Three of us had a delicious meal of garlic shrimp and rice and salad, and Sal had a fish fillet. Hadn't brought the camera with us, so no pictures. The bill for Ruth and I was 250 pesos ($20.00) including tip. And that included two beers for me and a tequila y squirt for Ruth. Love it!
And on a funny note, the Queen of England and Prince Philip went for their first ever motorhome ride yesterday. Imagine them pulling into the campsite beside you?! Tally ho!
