Fortunately, Sherman is parked at the end of a row of "back in" sites, and it seems most RV'ers don't want to back in. So we have no close neighbours, just the way we like it. And we still have a nice view out our front and side window. Nothing worse to us than opening your blind in the morning only to stare at another RV parked ten feet away!
Having said that, we are so happy to see all these RV'ers coming to Mexico! And especially for Barb and Sal here at Hacienda Contreras...a testament to the fact that they run a great RV Park. Interestingly, out of all those rigs, we think there are only two Americans. The rest are mostly Canadians. That's okay though. If all the Americans figured out how wonderful it is down here things would be too busy!
I got up on Sherman's roof yesterday to take a panorama picture of all the RV's.
Notice the blue sky...it was a sunny day yesterday!
At 9:30am, a group of us gathered at the La Cocinita restaurant in town for breakfast. They make a delicious breakfast there, with a special coffee that has cinnamon in it. We both had fresh orange juice though instead.
Our group took up two tables.
I had huevos rancheros. Fried eggs on a tortilla with tortilla chips and beans and cheese and a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice and a cup of rice pudding for dessert. Cost was 55 pesos ($4.62), and we didn't need any lunch!
Tioga George had not yet seen the town of Valle de Juarez, so we offered to show him around.

We relaxed for the afternoon and played a couple of games of backgammon. Ruth went and visited with the animals here...there's another batch of kittens hanging around. They sure are a friendly bunch!
Ruth, the kittens, and Nico the dog watching all the fuss!
Don Quixote (Donkey Hotey) with his friend Fiona in the background. Just enjoying a nice afternoon doing what donkeys do.
There are too many people here for just one happy hour circle! One group gathered at Doug and Nancy's to say goodbye to Doug's sister Diane. They are leaving this morning for a few days in Guadalajara and then Diane is heading home back to Alberta. It was nice meeting you Diane!
Happy hour. Everyone looks happy!
