Back Home

We arrived in San Carlos on Friday and haven't had a chance to catch our breath yet. This is one busy little town.

Last night our backyard neighbour picked me up to go to play bingo...she drives a golf cart and wanted to give me a ride. She is so proud of the vehicle and her ability to drive it around Tecalai!

And she should be proud...she is 96 years young and still going strong!!

She is celebrating with other neighbours after her victory in bingo.

Saskatoon residents...do you recognize the gentleman in the picture?

From Coast to Coast

We are settled into Morelia tonight and are enjoying the fact that the busiest part of the drive is over. The drive from Villahermosa to Tula is the toughest by far...lots of trucks carrying oil from Veracruz to various parts of Mexico.

While driving we usually have a system that works for both of us. I do the look out part and Fred does the driving, but today wasn't one of those days. Fred decided that the GPS system was completely out to lunch and went into Morelia on his own. Needless to say, I disagreed and I won't bother you with what transpired between us!! We did make it without incident and we are still talking, so that is good!

Tomorrow we have a short four drive to the town of Tequila. We plan on doing a tour of the Jose Cuervo distillery, which is strange since neither of us like tequila. Maybe we will learn tomorrow.

Safety First

Our friend went to Cozumel on Wednesday while Fred and I were golfing. Thankfully Mo left on an early ferry as this is what happened to one of the later ferries....explosion with 25 injured.

Speculation has ranged from payback to propane explosion to cartel....the real answer may never be released. Today when we went to Playa Del Carmen the pier was mostly closed and people were being transported by bicycles to an alternative pier.

While some people worried about this event, many Mexicans just continued on with their lives and took a break whenever possible.

Just Watching

We went to see the manatees the other day and it just happened to be feeding time so we were able to watch the workers giving them lettuce and mingling with them.

One of the manatees is expected to give birth any day now...how exciting would that be!

Puerto Aventuras is growing and the work never seems to stop. These guys are working on the building next to our condo....swarms of them!

Our Condo

This is our condo...we are on the top floor with the blue/white towels visible.

The last photo is a view from our balcony.

A Few Too Many

We were trying to decide what we were doing today and which glasses we would need! This getting old sucks!!
