We were in the boat around 9:30am. It's a two seater, and it's actually fairly heavy. Not something you would lug around on the roof of a motorhome. But it's stable in the water and easy to paddle.
It hadn't been used for a while, so here's Chago and one of his employees cleaning it up for us!
10 minutes later, we were out on the lake!
A lot of these are weekend homes and rental accommodation for people from Toluca and Mexico City. Once again, you can see how low the water level is compared to what the coastline is used to.
Amazing how they build a home into the rocks!
Look at these ones perched up high! They have a great view.
Kevin enjoying the day. Hey, what's that building behind me on the right?
A big hotel resort of some kind.
There are a few hotels on the lakeshore. I wonder how they'll make out when there's no water left?
It sure is a pretty lake.
Even a trailer park. These are all permanently located units that people from Toluca and Mexico City use as their weekend getaway.
We relaxed and read and used the computers for the rest of the afternoon. We only have 3 GB's for the month (100 Mb's per day average and we've been using close to 150 Mb's per day!) on our TelCel internet stick and we've been on the computers quite a lot. I actually turned off the "display photos" option on Google Chrome yesterday so that it uses up less of our allotted bandwidth.
Around 5:30pm I got the fire ready for our hamburgers. The wood that they use here for cooking is very dense and it creates great coals.
By sunset, the grill was ready for the burgers.
The chef at work. Nice hat, huh Sam??!!
Afterwards, we had a campfire. This is Chago's daughter Mariel, and son Isidro. Wife Carmen stayed up at the house looking after new baby Fatima.
