Cómo estás? Yo estoy muy bien. (translation: How are you? I am very good) In fact I am great! I have just gotten back from 8 days in Las Palmas de Cortez in Los Barriles, Baja California Sur, Mexico. CarGuy and I went with 3 other couples and stayed at an all inclusive resort that caters to the sport fisher(wo)man. CarGuy caught a marlin and released it. In fact, all the guys had a good time fishing: they caught and released 2 marlins, 2 sharks and 4 dorados. And while the guys fished, the gals soaked up the sun. At least the other 3 did -- I have a red-head's skin and could only get into the sun from 8:30 or so until 10 covered in a high number sunblock. For me, I am tan.
We did have a bit of excitement during our stay. This resort has the best water, it is filtered to here and gone and is very safe to drink. The water pump to the filtering system broke. We had no water for 2 days. Do you know how to flush a toilet with no running water? I do because when CarGuy and I first moved to the mountains we had no running water and used to take a bucket filled with river water and dump it into the toilet. Force of gravity, you know. So, we were taking our trash cans to the swimming pool, filling them up and dumping them in the toilet. Worked great. But I was really glad to have the water back in time to take a shower for the flight home.
While I was in Mexico, I knitted a pair of socks using a cotton yarn and finished them on the plane. I knew when I was over Colorado because the turbulence was making me stab myself with the needles. Meh.
There's no place like home.
