Today I went to town to have breakfast with friends and make an appointment for my pedicure and other things. After breakfast I went across the street to set my appointment for the pedicure then went back to Pete’s Camp and met neighbors there for a chat while they had breakfast. Here are some photos;

Another beautiful day in San Felipe the visitors are leaving and it will return to the quiet little fishing town again until the next big event. Life is simple here; good friends, good food, just enough going on to keep it interesting.
I’m getting ready for my trek north in a few days got to load the RV and make it ready for the trip. Then we head north for a few weeks.
I have a new camera and took some photos with it to try it out, here they are;

I thought today was going to be hot but I was fooled it is wonderful a light breeze about 80 degrees low humidity just comfortable as can be. I did the usual walk early this morning and I felt very well. I watered the plants and trees today and planted another tree, I hope it grows as it will give good shade if it does grow it is called a pepper tree here. The pepper tree looks to something like a dense willow when full-grown and they do get huge after a decade or so.
I had my contractor come by and check my house wiring; I swear I heard some pops and sparks, he couldn’t find anything wrong so I’m thought of as the crazy lady for sure. Maybe it is all in my head at least with a cement house I don’t have to worry about it burning down. He promised that there would be someone over on monday to start work assembling my fountain. I hope so but then again it is Mexico and do-do do happen or not happen as the case may be.
I watched a movie called No Reservations and loved it. It is a love story and I’m a sucker for a good love story. I recommend the movie especially if you have a love in your life. The movie tonight is Woman On Top, kind of loony tunes but very entertaining. I think there is a message there somewhere. Again I recommend it.
Tonight I’m looking forward to PBS English comedies, they are a hoot. Some popcorn an adult beverage and English comedies in front of the Telly.
Well, it is time for an adult beverage and a snack so I’m closing now hope to post photos of the fountain construction later.
A little adult beverage time
Nice view eh?
I love this view
For a few days I had the blues, it happens to lots of folks, I get the blues every once in a while and they go away. I don’t like having them as it puts a cramp in my life and takes up my energy and time. I’m over them now and back to my usual self.
I have been thinking about making some changes in my life; those changes are to sell my RV and get something smaller lighter and less expensive to maintain. I’m thinking that I’ll buy a pickup truck and then get an RV trailer to camp in when that occasion comes along or get a Van Camper. When I return north I’ll see what is available and go with it. Heck I just might get the pickup and see if I really want a camper.
I tried getting my South Dakota license replaced but it seems they want me there personally to get a replacement; that isn’t going to happen so I’ll just use my Mexican license instead which will puzzle the heck out of the State Police if I get stopped, but only if I have U.S. plates. Seems circumstances are pushing me more and more into being a Mexican every year. I can register and insure my Mexican plated car for less than I pay in the states and I’m insured there also by the same company that is based in California. That is puzzling to me but I see by the paper work it is true. I can drive in the U.S. on my Mexican license because I’m a Mexican resident and I’m driving a Mexican plated car. I’m assured, if needed, I can even rent a car in the U.S. using my Mexican license. Doesn’t sound right, but like most things these days the odd stuff is right.
I am waiting for my new fountain to be installed then I can take another trip to Ensenada Baja MX and look for a summer rental. I want to rent a house or apartment and get to know the area better, also it is much cooler there than on this side of the peninsula.
