End of May update

Been busy as usual with chores; such as getting the truck repaired I had the mechanics replace the heater core and fan, repair the battery hold down device. The air-conditioning just went out so it will go back in the shop tomorrow to get that repaired. I bought a picture made of Mexican tile in Ensenada and I had a man (Jose) cement it on the house for me, photo below.

Tonight my friends and neighbors went out to dinner this evening at the Camp Cantina to wish one of our neighbors (Deb) goodbye as she is headed north for a visit for a while. This is something we do on our street when someone leaves for a while. Photo of the dinner is also below.

If it seems like I eat out a lot, it is true I do. I find that I can afford to eat out more her in Mexico and the food is delicious well prepared and the company is wonderful there never seems to be any lack of conversation. I feel free to go out for breakfast and or lunch and still can go out to dinner a couple of times a week. I know I’m spoiled 🙂

Sea Food Festival In San Felipe

I went to the Sea Food Festival yesterday with friends we listened to some of the bands featured for the event and drank Margaritas nibbled on orderves. The went to an Italian Restaurant for pizza because there wasn’t much food at the Sea Food Festival.

I also made it to the front page of a newspaper in Mexicali. The article was about people visiting San Felipe for the long weekend and they needed a photo of some gringos and our breakfast club photo was used and I was smack dab there in all my glory. Of course the photo and article didn’t go together but what the hey! I made front pages news!

Ensenada Trip

I went to Ensenada for a couple of days of shopping and dinning with a neighbor and her cute dog chica a Shi-tsu. We had a lovely room in the Hotel El Sol Rey in the heart of the tourist district. Each day we had a breakfast in their restaurant and it was lovely. We shopped till we dropped and had a wonderful time. Here a few photos of the trip.

Friday night

Tonight being friday night I went with a friend for dinner at Al’s Back Street Bar in San Felipe. On friday night they have an all you can eat special of fried fish and french fries. I can never eat more than one portion and one beer. Tonight I managed two beers and one portion. I should have had a photo taken of the cute kitty that shared our meal with us. The kitty was young and thin with the marking of a tortoise very friendly, we took turns holding her and petting her. The food was delicious as always, the weather was turning chilly and we left there and went to Padrino’s Italian restaurant for dessert before returning home. As usual we met more friends there and had a good time catching up on things.

Here I am about to enjoy my fish dinner;

Gonzaga Bay Trip (Revised)

There is a by south of San Felipe that is very pretty and there is a settlement of gringos there as well as a hotel and restaurant. Sunday I went on a trip there with friends. Along the way we stopped at a beach and collected shells, we were the only ones on the beach for miles. We also stopped at Cow Patty’s Bar a traditional stop for us going south of town.

We had a delicious lunch at the restaurant at Gonzaga Bay it was a shrimp stew with salad, rice and beans. The beer was cold and the service was outstanding. My friends Deb and Cindy had a great time collecting Sea Shells and Pumice stones. Here are some photos of the trip.

Life in my part of Mexico

11210107_10206946823499779_877477912_n-2

Here I am having dinner with friends at our Cuban restaurant here in San Felipe Baja MX. I eat out frequently I usually have breakfast out about five days a week and I have dinner out two or even three times a week all with friends. We are fortunate to have several good restaurants here in San Felipe and the prices are reasonable the company extraordinary so I give in to the temptation and enjoy the dinning adventure.
