1 25 11 Spending a quiet day close to the apartment, our balcony is a fantastic place to read or write or have meals or cool drinks. Untill about 2 in the afternoon, then the sun is too hot until about 6 in the evcening. We have a little shopping to do today. I saw a blouse I want, but couldn’t find the store again last night and I don’t wander too far a night alone. So in the light of day, found the shop and bought the blouse, it looks kind of hand-woven, very light weight. Then went on to buy a dress I saw last year, just a cotton wrap around dress, but I wanted it last year and didn’t get it as it was more than I wanted to pay. Since I still wanted it this year, I got it heck with the price We made reservations to take a back country tour on Friday and to participate in a sailboat parade on the bay on the following Friday.
While Doyle napped I went back out and picked up a few groceries at the mercado and bought 11 eggs that were placed in a plastic bag for me to carry back to the apartment, no carton just a plastic bag. I meant to ask for a dozen “doce,” but I slipped and said “once” and got eleven. Eggs cost 10 pesos each, less than a dime each, not quite as good as our own, but not bad.
Went out to dinner again a La Hija del Capitian, I think it is Doyle’s favorite place, he plans to watch the super bowl there. Their fish menu consists of 3 different types of prawns, this time I tried the coconut prawns, they were good and I’ve never been fond of coconut before. We had planned to go to Pacolo’s for music and drinks they have a two-man band of which one is from Bremerton. He drives truck in the summer in Kitsap County and goes to Zihuatanejo every winter to play music. Best of both worlds, I should have kept up with my music lessons! The place was too crowded, so we headed over to Bandido’s where there was a one man band who was excellent. Very mello, played a lot of the old Frank Sinatra. Nate King Cole type standards. Had a great evening. He came over and introduced him self during the break, which is very common here. The musicians are very friendly with the audience. We also ran into our friend who runs Zorro’s Bar. Most places we go we see people we know or have met. We are beginning to feel like regulars instead of just tourists. I got wore my new red dress with my new mexican jewelry I bought at the beach. All in it was just another day in paradise! signing off KO
