Feb 18 - 20, 2010

We went back to the El Capitan Restaurant to accept John and Judy’s offer for a ‘Thank You’ meal for allowing them use our HughesNet internet connection while we were here in Mexico.


It is a good thing we went when we did as ever since Thursday it was been too windy to eat outside.  Thank you for a great meal with great friends in a perfect setting.



Just thought I would show you a perfect avocado…yes it was delicious!





004Isn’t this a beautiful hibiscus bloom-the poor bush only had one bloom on it.  When these are dried they can be made into a wonderful herb tea called Jamaica.


Here we are lined up next to the 15 story condo, this has been home for almost a month now.  We are heading back to the states on Tuesday.

009  Here we are celebrating Lynda’s birthday, come to find out I am about 6 weeks older than she is.  We actually surprised her with the party.   Earl and Lynda were already at the restaurant, Latitude 31, and we came in and sang  ♫♫ Happy Birthday ♫♫ to her.  Yes, she was surprised and embarrassed,  Earl even got a cake for our dessert.


I went out last night about dusk and looked up, this is what I saw.  Pelicans just flying around overhead, I bet there was a hundred of them.


During the night I was woke up about 1:30 with the sounds and feel (coach rocking) of high winds.  I came out and checked the monitor for the wind speed,  it was then 35 mph, so slept intermittently the rest of the night.  The sustained winds during the night ended up being 48 mph with gusts to 61 mph, these are the highest winds we have been in since we have gotten the weather station.  This morning our neighbor came and told us our slide topper was partially blown off.   We were able to release the small area that was still holding and now the topper is all rolled up into the roller.   We have a plan for its repair, but need to get back to the states to see if it works.
