One of the things we like about this area is that there are lots of country trails to walk on that surround the farm fields.
Lots of different crops in the fields, including corn, watermelon, pineapple, and cucumber. Also some groves of mangos.
The hills of dirt are to grade the road with. The grader will show up at some point over the next month or two!
Corn. Or, this could be sorghum.
Lots of wild flowers.
Ruth, admiring the green scenery!
We're in for a kind of a different weekend here at the RV park. Garry had booked a local Scout troop from Puerto Vallarta to do some kind of jamboree. They were told maybe 150 kids, then the number dropped to 80. So we weren't sure how many to expect. Some adults showed up on Thursday and set up some tents, and they spent most of Friday setting up some kind of obstacle course in the field. Oh, and a huge campfire for tonight!
That's gonna be a big fire!
Sure enough, last night around 6:00pm the buses started arriving.
The Scouts have arrived!
There were three bus loads.
We're thinking somewhere between 75 and 100 kids. There is no "Boy Scouts" or "Girl Guides" in Mexico...simply Scouts and it is for both boys and girls. Apparently they are aged 9 to 17.
So, it should be interesting to watch some of the goings on here at the park today.
However, we will be gone for a couple of hours. We're off to find a map! Our Mexico map book is up in Saskatchewan because we had it with us last time we drove the little blue car north. Plus, it's about 7 years old now so we were due for a new one anyhow.
