My first ocean swim this year!!!

It was great to get in the warm water the waves are quite big close to shore so you have to be careful not to get knocked over…this is another great RV park, a hotel also and lovely pool

Not a bad place to be…so the RV park which has great hot showers full hook ups and internet and he was going to charge me 250 pesos a night but after talking with the owner for a while he charged me 200 pesos a night , almost 17 dollars!!!!!

I have two different sets of friends here in town and I went to visit Joy and Colin for a while they have been coming down here for years and I met them a few years ago and we became good friends…sorry Barb and Paco wish you were here!!!!

I then went and met Inga who is in town for two more days, Inga and I were in a relationship for a few years and a few years ago and we have remained friends and I met with her and three of her friends and had a lovely dinner

Now I have to get used to sleeping with the crashing waves about 50 feet away…life is really quite good don’t you think?
