Dawn San Felipe
Last night my dog Shelby was sick and needed to go outside several times. So, I was up later and more often than usual. While I was up and outside the explosions from the fire works was obvious not as many as in other places in Mexico, but enough good bangers to make it an occasion. The sky was crystal clear and the stars were out making the scene almost like a painting. The tide came in very high last night within 10 meters or less of my rig.
Today the residents are having a feast fried turkey and the trimmings; I won’t be partaking in eating as all of it is either animal or has animal products in it. so I have been staying away from temptation. I did contribute some items for the feast as a good neighbor should.
I loaded SKYPE onto my computer today and it seems to work. All I need now is someone to call or call me and I’ll know that it works. If Skype works horray for technology 😀
The trailer will be removed
Here I am on christmas eve 2011, I have been camped here in San Felipe at the Kiki RV park for a month. It doesn’t seem that long I guess I am having fun. My fellow campers are mostly Canadians who spend most of the winter down here at this park year after year. There are a few Americans who are camped here one comes every year and has his spot all decked out with a full kitchen under his ramada. Most of the Canadian‘s are more conservatively kitted out. Other Americans here are in such big rigs they are only accommodated by taking up several spaces along the fence effectively blocking several sites.
I have decided to buy into a camp here and build my own permanent winter camp/home near the beach. I feel a little anxious about doing so because of the risk. I think spending my winters here and summers in the mountains is the way to go at this time. The place I bought into is called Pete’s Camp and it has been functioning for decades. The lot is bare bones except for a septic tank and electric pedestal and a couple of thousand little thorny plants that have to be removed. How all this will work out is going to be interesting to say the least.
So, on to another adventure and more learning …..
Oh yes, the locals are blasting fireworks tonight something I have come to expect here in Mexico just one of those traditions that makes Mexico fascinating.
