Beach, Mexico and Toilet Races

We have been on the go here the last week or so, guess because our time is running out here. So I'm going to work backwards, you know, CRS and all. Yesterday we played a golf course that we had not played before, they have a special, 15 dollars for the family, with cart, after 4. Play as much as you can, which we did, got in 14 holes, so that was great. Lots of water on this course, think there was some on almost every hole. Our regular golf group had their snack party Thursday night, and they will be winding down too. This coming one will be our last, they were a good group and fun to play with. We also had the toilet races, which were a hoot.

Sort of reminded me of backing the RV into a tight spot. One person sat of the toilet, which was mounted to a hand cart, while the other pushed, the trick was the pusher was blind folded. They just had to go a short distance, then around a traffic cone and back to the starting line. Needless some of the spectators were in danger, just like backing that RV.

We also did the beach one day and of course Mexico.

That water is COLD!

Tourist Trap

aka Gift Shop

They has so much stuff in there it was unbelievable

It was the day that they had all the trouble at the other bridge. The only one that is recommended is Progresso and that has not seen any problems as of yet. But it is a little disconcerting to see the army in a bunker in the middle of the street as you enter. But there is not shortage of shoppers, the streets are packed, and they do have some good buys. But with us there are not too many things that we need (or have room for). Did get some cute little folding tables for outside,and some tequila, but mostly just go for the fun of it. I have been enjoying the grapefruit here, they are the best that I have ever eaten, bar none. Fruit and vegetable's are very plentiful and down right cheap. We will be so spoiled. Two years ago we were up north and could not find a tomato worth eating in the middle of the summer. I stopped laughing at people who pulled out their tomato plants that they carried with them, when they were stetting up camp.

I did win at card elimination the other night, sack full of dimes, my very first win of the season, Chuck had a great winning streak for awhile, even the big one once. Being as it goes in the same pot I shouldn't be complaining now should I?
We will be leaving here next week, planning on a few days in San Antonio, then on to Kerrville, where we plan to stay for a month. Lord willing. Chuck has an appointment with his cardiologist Monday, and we will hear what he has to say. The echo that he had done showed some things that the doctor did not like, but wanted to see his records from California before making any changes. So we are keeping our fingers crossed, he is feeling fine, so that makes me sort of feel better. Course he does not always tell me the truth, soooooo, yea. Any way I'm planning on being there to hear it from the doctor myself.

Life is good, the sun is shining, and the wind is at our backs.
