So anyway - got my hair trimmed. Didn't want it buzzed off like I usually have it, and lucky me, the barber Luis, showed up here in the campground. So here I am in a lawn chair out next to the RV getting my hair trimmed. Letting the top grow out a little, maybe I can spike it.
Later that day Bill took his Phantom Pro drone up. It has colored led lights on its propellers. Looks like an UFO when it is in the sky. Took a video of it flying. Too funny.
But this is new, there is now a door in it.??? Will have to take a walk by it and snoop. Also the little mural is new.
And just down a few feet is this painting of a bird. Need to get a better picture of it too. This is a one way street so only way to get phoho is through windshield as we zip by.
A block down on my side of the street are these. Notice the window is bricked up.
And now it is another day and we are back downtown in one of our favorite parking lots WHAT HAVE THEY DONE? They built a shed right in front of one of the best murals in town. How could they?
Still in the parking lot Looking u at the building next door. Part of the old ceiling is still there.
Same building - the brick are really old all hand made. Different sizes. I wish I had billions of dollars so I could restore some of these old beauties.
Remember the spray can artist. Between Bill and Mark they ordered too many paintings to be finished the night we were at the Plazuela. So the painter said he would do them and we could pick them up at his business - an automotive battery repair and sales shop. He said they would be ready Wednesday. Well the first time we went there - luckily I used Google Maps so we found it easily enough. Of course the paintings were not ready. So we went back Wednesday morning. Still not ready. Off we went to breakfast. Came back and still not ready but we would wait. Bill heading for the shop.
I was being snotty so I stayed in the car. Right in front of the car was an Oyster selling stand. So I got to watch the owner shuck the oysters put them in little cups and a whole lot of people stop to eat them.
Bill patiently waiting in the shop.
The painter - he would finish a painting and go out and put it on the hood of his truck in the sun while working on the next one. Seven hours later - well maybe not that long - more like 45 minutes we had all the paintings and were on our way. That'll teach me, next time I'm sticking with Bill.
OH MY GOSH - part of the main road that has been torn is was open - only a couple of blocks of it but enough to get to the big supermarket we like. Looks pretty good too. Sidewalks are new as is the bike path in the center. Also all new sewer and water lines under it. So we went to the market before going home.
Some day when the traffic isn't so bad I want to stop and get some closer photos of this. It is amazing. So colorful and all kinds of things painted on it. It is a restaurant that seems to change hands every six or so months.
Stopped for lunch at Torres and watched this guy walk the beach. He carries his table with him over his shoulder so he can set the tray on it. He also has a donut shaped thing he puts on the top of his head. Lots of people buy from him. All different kinds of fruit.
We watched the truck race Friday night. Kyle won driving one of his company's trucks. He has won the last 8 truck races he has entered. Well crap. Just read that he #18 will be starting in the back because of a penalty - modification to part of the car the officials didn't like. Three of the Gibbs cars will be moved to back and the drivers will loose points. Oh well should be fun watching him move up. But he was never faster than 15th in practice. Race is in Las Vegas - rained all day there yesterday and snowed in the mountains.
