We slept well, as it was a little cooler over night 50f (10c) and the sound of the surf real close by. In the morning we watched the sunrise down the beach as a new day unfolds. I update our blog from the wifi in the restaurant. Then I walked about the resort checking out the facilities, nice pools and well manicured grounds. The mexican group and the tour bus was here until late afternoon. They occupied the restaurants most of the day with speakers, food and dancing, quite interesting.
I drove into the village to check out the store and found it had a few staples there but no fresh fruit or veggies. The village does have a brand new Tecate Six store! This a very busy place, its open front and with three men on the other side of the counter were very busy taking your cervasa (beer) order and putting in plastic bags with ice on top if you like. The locals then just drive around the corner and onto the beach, for picnics or just playing in the sand with food, cervasa and music.
Back at the resort we chatted with a few neighbours and purchased one kilo of fish fillets (50 pesos, about $4.00) from the shrimp lady who sells in the park. A bit later the vegetable truck came in and we bought some fresh fruit and veggies. Then we sat in the shade on the sand reading for a while (80f, 26c), and were able to catch a few dolphins playing in the surf just a couple of hundred yards away. They were just to quick for me to take a picture of them thou. Then we bought a fresh homemade pie from another vendor walking down the beach, we choose 1/2 pineapple and 1/2 cheesecake to sample for desert only 60 pesos ($5.00). So supper was fresh fish, boiled potatoes, fresh tossed salad and very delicious sampling of these pies. A nice sunset, a movie then retire. Life is good!
