We had received an email on the weekend asking if we could call. So we drove into town and used a telephone caseta. This is a storefront business that has about eight little telephone booths. The girl at the front dials the number you want, and when there's an answer she directs you to one of the booths where you continue the call. Cost to call Canada is 2 pesos (16 cents) per minute.
After that, we walked over to a used clothing store that Ruth had been to last year with Mary. She bought a pair of capri shorts for 90 pesos ($7.20).
We had made arrangements meet a friend of a friend at between noon and 1:00pm. It was getting close to noon, so we drove over to meet up with Kate. She is storing some boxes for Tracy, a girl we had met here a couple of years ago. Anyhow, Tracy needs those boxes shipped up to Puerto Vallarta so we're going to organize the shipping for her. We wanted to know just how many boxes there were and if we could use the little blue car to transport them. Turns out that we can do it, but we'll make two or three trips. We're going back on Wednesday morning to repack some stuff and get it ready.
Then, we tried to find the Sunset Point Resort Hotel where our new friends Dave and Bonnie are staying. These are the people we met in Acapulco and they followed us to Playa Ventura. We found it, and what a GREAT spot it is! In fact, it's so great that we moved in! We decided we needed a little holiday, and it's close to Mary and Alfredo's so we can still visit them easily. We'll tell you more about it tomorrow, but you can have a bit of a preview by the following photos!

We agreed to go up and have dinner at our place and Dave and Bonnie brought the wine. Ruth whipped up a quick pasta dish and salad. It was delicious!
