It is what it is.
It is Mexico...
Also in search of a place to get Jim's haircut.
Well we didn't find either place, but we did find all of this:
Bahia de Navidad with Melaque in the distance.
The beach with a cheap
We found that Barra could use a good electrician.
We found a dog that wanted out.And where to buy lingerie.We found that man and a big white bird can fish together.And we were reminded of just how beautiful the grounds of The Grand Bay Hotel and Marina are...
This of course being the owner's private swimming lagoon...
Then a bus trip over to Melaque with Wally and Linda of "Andanzas".
They are pretty much marina-bound until Wally finishes healing from his back surgery, so anchoring in Melaque with the beach dinghy landings is out for them right now.
So how to see Merocky?
Bus and tienda tour by us.
We showed them the Hawaii Store full of American products and great produce, along with the "produce store in the street".
And where to buy
Or does the painting on the wall mean they sell pig that has been prepared by cow?
Then to our favorite palapa restaurant on the beach for lunch for the three of them.
I wasn't feeling well, so opted for mineral water and a float in the little surf in lieu of a taco salad.
Found another Mexican Dog for the Mexican Dog Calendar that Suzie and I are going to put together "someday".You would never see a dog that looks like this in the US...
Back on the bus to Barra.
Back on the panga back to the marina.
Back in the dinghy back to "Meerkat".
And all I wanted to do was sleep...
Felt better, so back in the dinghy to Chris and Lorry's house for a great dinner of dorado, smoked marlin pasta, salad and bread!
Y U M!
Oh, and endless fresh water showers in their guest bathroom too!!!
Let the meerkats hang out with Jungle Joe for a bit.
Ok, Jungle Joe is NOT a good influence on the meerkats...
Talked until 10 pm.
Either I was going to sleep on their couch or I had to get back in the dinghy again...
Back in the dinghy.
Beautiful slightly less than full moon lit up the lagoon ~ what a fun ride in the warm night with the boats at anchor, anchor lights reflecting in the water, Grand Bay lights sparkling on the hill.
