The Old Man And The Sea !

Catch of the Day

The Senor went fishing on the Dos Amigos today and about 14 miles out caught this big one.  Of course he didn’t have the camera with him and I had opted not to go so there is no record of the fight and landing this approximately 100 lb fish.  He just gave the fish to the captain as a sail fish isn’t what he considers to be good eating, but.  Luckily I met up with him and was able to get some good pictures.  Obviously he is very proud of his catch.  While he fished I prowled around town, did a little bit of shopping, but mostly the looking kind of shopping.  Then I took myself out to lunch.  I selected one of the waterfront restaurants where you can sit at a table with your feet in the sand.  Lunch would have been cheap except for the two mango margaritas.  Which I have discovered are the absolutely the yummiest drink ever.

Always my fascination is with what I see different here.  Every morning all over town mothers and fathers walk their children to school, girls in their uniform skirts and boys in white pants at the school closest to us.  Boys all with short hair neatly combed  girls mostly with long pony tails or braids.

The “Good Humor” truck has a different look here also and defiantly a different sound. No Calliope type music just the soft tooting of a bicycle horn as he pushes his cart around town.  Today this one had 2 flavors in his galvanized tub, coconut and strawberry.  I opted for the strawberry today.  We were sitting at Zorro’s Bar which is almost right under us, I didn’t even need to get off my bar stool to trade 20 pesos for some great tasting, probably home-made ice cream.

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like , but I plan on doing more. After working full time at Mount Rainier National Park during the summer of 22 I have decided to retire completely and forever. Prior to that I was semi retired as a Wedding Officiant I officiated at about 20 weddings a season, and with my small delivery service I handled the distribution of a local high-quality Home and Garden magazine . Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency. I now plan to travel to new places and exciting places, getting ready to do that as a solo as the Senior is no longer with me, his choice, and I am OK with that. For hobbies I'm a reader and love my kindle. And I enjoy writing.
