So yesterday morning, after coffee and breakfast, we set off on a walk around the block!
The "block" as it were, is 4.1 kms (2.5 miles).
This is a rural farming area, and lots of different crops growing. Most common are corn, watermelons, cantaloupes, pineapples, and mangoes.
A small field of pineapples.
I have always said that I would want to live in a climate where you can grow your own pineapples!!!
Missy and Reno came with us on our walk!
A large mango orchard.
It was fun taking dogs for a walk for a change!
Look at the size of these leaves!
The huge leaves come from these skinny little trees!
It's a pretty area.
An orange cheeked woodpecker.
In the afternoon, I had some repair work to do. The window on our entrance door had shifted and I could see a tiny gap where it wasn't sealed properly. I took it all apart and found that the little plastic support tabs had broken off the bottom. It's very cheap construction, as are most parts of any RV. There's a reason they call them a "cardboard box on wheels" in the industry!
I reversed the frame so that the glass would sit on the unbroken tabs on the other side. Then I sealed it all with a tube of silicon. Should be better than when it was new.
It was Mexico daylight savings time change last night, so we're now only an hour behind Ottawa and two hours behind Nova Scotia. Woke up to clouds this morning, for the first time since we arrived in Mexico. I thought it was still early because it wasn't very bright outside, but with the time change it was already 7:40am when we got up. Gonna have to get back on schedule!
A cattle drive went through our side road. I guess the younger cowboys like ATV's better than horses!
