Where are we today ?
clic a pic to enlarge itWow, I slept in real late for me, 5 am. But felt good. So got some coffees into me and as the sun was rising headed out for a refreshing walkabout. Only about 48 f and windy just another layer of clothes and I was good to go.
Back home puttered around a bit cleaned up our car for passengers and at 9 am Ron and Loree joined us for a short trip to Los Algodones Mexico, their first time there. Many times for us. Only less than 10 minutes from the campground, parked on the Indian land parking lot 6 bucks for the day, and Ron insisted on paying, thanks guys. Then we walked across the border checking our some vendors and getting them used to the constant vendors wanting to sell you something (you don't need ), bartering etc. and how to have fun with them as well. Always an experience we enjoy.
|they know where the money comes from|
|my first walkabout this morning|
|here we are about 9 am.|
|Loree and Ron's first time here|
not sure what to expect
|catching our breath here for a while|
|love the colors of this bench|
Watching this painter do his stuff is truly an amazing thing to see. Ended up Ron and Loree watched this guy (Marlon, he joked Marlon Brando) custom paint a sign for them. With his Mexican paint brush, pieces of cardboard and a plastic bag using cans of spray paint. Hard to believe what he can create with these items.
|he had just created this background, and talking to them|
came up with a beautiful custom scene
right before our eyes
|that is all he works with and so fast|
|using the plastic bag for the trees|
|like magic he added a waterfall and trees|
|how is this you like?|
|this guy is amazing what he can do|
|almost done they love it|
|paw prints for Freddy and a chain to hang it with|

|these guys were very good|
|we done now making our way back|
Lunch done Ron, Loree and us picked up a couple pounds of large shrimp (not the jumbo) $8.00 a lb from Rocky Point. We always enjoy these amazing shrimp, would have gotten more but not enough freezer space. Hope we get back for more before we head home.
|on the right these shrimp are HUGE, bigger than we like|
$11.00 a pound
|these are $8,.00 a pound and are a perfect size|
|some very tasty treats|
|windy and cooler but wonderful warm sunny blue skies|
While sitting here inside reading and posting this blog can watch the sun setting right outside our window. Another very nice desert sunset, not very often we don't get a nice one here.
What can I say about these fun times here, a short trip to Mexico for some touristy fun stuff, and a tasty lunch, enjoying the sunshine a fresh air with good friends.
|in a mater of minutes it drops quickly|
|that is it then gone|
