One of our neighbors had a visitor, he is right next to their steps. He spent the night in the little palm tree right next to their rig. Came off the palm fond and is sunning himself on the rug. Guess he was really cold cause he sure wasn't going to move. Noticed how his belly, some toes and the under part of his tail is lime green. When he warmed up he finally left.
Our coleus are growing like crazy. All of them have new leaves. Sure hate to leave them behind, but Rafael will take them, pots and all. Going to try to get some in Vegas to see how they will grow there. Really like them.
Our Internet line has been strung up along the wall while the bobcat was in here cleaning up the trash and dirt along the wall. Thank you guys.They are guarding it. They are the guys who strung it up. They are shoveling all the dirt and trash in piles for the bobcat to pick up. Bill went out to thank them and gave them each 50 pesos. Minimum wage here is 102.68 pesos per day. At today's exchange rate of 19,11 US that equals 5.73. Yes that is five US dollars and 73 cents PER DAY.
We both had cabin fever so had to get out for a while. Called Mark and talked him into going with us to La Martina Restaurant. The daises weren't there before.
When the owner (her back is to us) and the waitresses saw Bill they came running asking him how he was. What? Seems like some one was at the restaurant and told them Bill had had an accident with his belly. He got lots of hugs. Took a bit to straighten out the story. More hugs. We followed her out onto the patio to sit down and have breakfast.
Esmeralda, our favorite waitress. She also was concerned about Bill.
View from our table. Since we were here last the trees and the bushes have lost their leaves and the landscape is not quite brown. The exterior of this building is about done.
This building too. Owner said she is going to use this as a boutique. They will see trinkets and some of the sauces etc from their recipes.
They sure had a lot to talk about. Mark and I just listened - but didn't understand much.
Looking out over the roof that was built over a pretty stage area.
Bill's breakfast was specially made. He still is having trouble digesting eggs, meat, fried or just plain greasy things. So salad and grilled chicken. Dressing doesn't seem to bother him.
My chocolate waffle and fruit.
Just the part of the restaurant I was looking at. Everywhere you look it is pretty.
A new wrought iron fence and gate to keep people from picking the flowers and the vegetables.
The bougainvilleas lining the driveway are so pretty.
The next day we took a short drive out to Cerritos to watch the fishermen. I also was looking for a Carnaval t-shirt. Picture of it in previous post. A fishing boat was just in and unloading his catch.
Some of the boats that had come in earlier.
Carrying a box full of the catch up the stairs to the truck where the buyer waits.
For sale I guess - on a small table in front of one of the restaurants. Interesting but fragile.
Fisherman watching his catch being sorted and weighed.
Just an old truck that caught my eye. Liked the colors.
Another truck, yes it is still being used. Just drove up.
Got my shirt and we went home to listen to the construction. Never ending it seems.
