Hmmm, I guess first things first; I awoke on saturday morning and as usual took my dog Shelby for a walk on the beach. It was very early in the morning the sun was just beginning to come up, I noticed two men standing over something that looked like a body. Oh,oh say me to myself what is this? As it got lighter I could see that it was an animal so I went closer to have a look and it turned out to be a dolphin. It had washed up on the shore durning the night. I felt sad and wondered how this came to be. Shelby and I went for our walk in the opposite direction away from the dolphin. I was surprised Shelby didn’t seem to have any interest in the dolphin.
When we got back from our walk, I talked to the neighbors about it and they expressed their sadness at the loss of such a beautiful animal.
I went back to my RV and I was about to start the car when I noticed I had a flat tire. Sheesh, I haven’t owned the car for more than a few hours and I have a flat! One of my fellow RV’rs here at the park lent me his little air compressor and I pumped up the tire and thought I would just drive up the hill and get it fixed. I had forgot how early it was and the tire repair store wasn’t open yet and wouldn’t be open for another hour. So I drove back to my RV and had coffee and toast. Later I took another neighbor and we drove to the tire repair shop and got the tire fixed for about $3.00 American and then we drove into town so my neighbor could have breakfast. After breakfast we drove out to my lot in Pete’s Camp to have a look at what work had been done.
When we got to the lot at Pete’s Camp we found the workers hard at work and the trenches had been dug for the water, sewer and electric lines and they were working on getting the new soil tramped down for the gravel that was coming. The big water tank was there and someone had been working on the electric meter post. My neighbors came out and we had a chat with them about the work being done and they said how hard the workers were working yesterday. I suspect that the workers only put in a half a day’s work today. The builder boss showed up and we had a chat about what was going on and he seemed happy that things were going smoothly.
My friend and I then went to the restaurant at Pete’s camp for some coffee. We had a nice conversation with the folks there and enjoyed some french fries as well. When we got out of the restaurant we noticed that there was a huge fog bank coming in off the water. I quickly got my dog out for a walk and as soon as she had done her business we loaded up and headed back to town and our RV park. I didn’t want to be driving the fog. By the time we got back to the RV park our fellow neighbors where being entertained by a Mexican band. I paid them their fee for a Mexican song I like and they started playing. I move up close to the singers and a young man that was singing started dancing with me! That was a hoot I enjoyed that a lot. I was sorry to se the band leave.
Later that evening I went with my friend Ron out to eat. This little town is very active at night and there are lots of food stands and restaurants to choose from and my friend has his favorites. After dinner we came back to the RV park and had a few drinks with our neighbors and soon it was time to call it a night. I made some tea to go with cookies and heard the wind outside and felt the RV move, a wind storm had moved in and was blowing things around, the wind stayed up most of the night and in the morning we had over a dozen big fishing boats anchored off our little beach. I guess they don’t like to fish when it is rough out on the Sea of Cortez.
This morning (sunday) my friend and I went to town again for breakfast, I only had toast and coffee, as I already had made pancakes for breakfast. After breakfast I took Ron to a pharmacy so he could get his medications and then to the bank so he could get some cash out of the ATM. When we got back to the RV park we were invited to play Bocce with our fellow travelers and had a great time in a fun and friendly competition.
I finally got back to my RV after bocce and in minutes the wind started up again so it might be a bumpy night hopefully no more dead animals on the beach monday morning. I don’t want to see that again soon.
