Yesterday afternoon we did some Wii bowling over at Pat and Jacks. I played in round two and did okay and even ended up in the days finals. For some reason I was hot and after four strikes in a row won the bowling trophy for a week. Pat crocheted a cover for a bottle of champagne that looks like a bowling pin. So corny it's cute. I get to keep it for a week.
Those of us going for the Bocci dinner at Fat Fish " two for one night " headed out at 5:15 and seven of us piled into Bill and Jeanette's truck. Kind of a Mexican ride except we didn't have the pick-up box full of people! Eric didn't come so I had to drink two Pina Coladas (small) and just ordered my own dinner. We were home by 6:30 pm so that was a real quick trip. Eric hadn't even eaten his leftovers yet. It was kind of nice in town at night with all the lights as it hides all the imperfections. Can you tell I haven't been anywhere at night yet!
Eric is still not up to snuff yet and so I went to the beach by myself again and it was really nice and I even went in and had a little swim. Lovely. The wind has finally quit and it is warm again although it has really been cooling down at night. Good for sleeping.

Sam and Hal are doing some construction across from us at the Blue Bus. Sam is helping Hal put an extension on top of their small Toyota pick-up (Hal and Helene's) so that they can put a bed in it while they travel to and from New Mexico where they live in the summer in " another bus."
Hal & Sam building.
Waiting for paint!
I'll post a picture of it finished if it's done before we leave.
Hal & Helene's Blue Bus.We have now made plans to travel out of Mexico as far as San Carlos with Frank and Sandi. We'll leave here on March 9th and stop in a Pemex in Los Mochis and then head to San Carlos the next day. Frank and Sandi will spend the night and then head to Ajo, Arizona for the night before they go Scottsdale to see their kids and grandkids. The grandkids have a ball tournament on that weekend so they wanted to get there to see that. We don't care whether we leave a day or two early so it's good for both of us as it's nice to have someone to travel with. We'll stay in San Carlos for a week and then head out and probably stay at Edgar and Anna's in Santa Ana before we head out to Arizona. At least this is the plan for right now.
We went with the Friday night bunch to Los Floris in the Golden Zone tonight for 2 for 1 drinks and dinner tonight. I had been to the beach "by myself again" and came back for an early shower to get ready to leave at 4:30 (shades of the early bird dinner!) The group climbed up to 14 in numbers tonight and we were a little overwhelmed to start with as we headed out on the bus. When we got off the bus to walk to the hotel it was nice to see the hustle and bustle of happy people shopping and getting ready for an evening out. Los Floris is really nice as it's right on the ocean and we were sitting outside as well and once everyone got a couple of drinks under their belts it all got quite social. Good fun and lots of chat. The meal was okay and everyone was ready to go by just after seven. We could have stayed a little later but we hopped into a Pulmonia with Hal and Helene and headed home. The driver spoke excellent english and knew quite a bit about Canada. Eric commented that all these shootings can't be good for business and he agreed saying it is even worse in the border towns, which we of course knew. He also said that he heads inland in the summer because the temperature climbs to 110F and the humidity to 90%, quite hideous! So we were home before we usually even have dinner on our big night out. Too funny!
Tomorrow I hope to get into the Golden Zone where they have some tents set up with stuff from Guadalahara. It's supposed to be different that the usual "crap" that you can buy here. Hope so.
There was a a beautiful full moon by early this evening see.......!
