Our first day in San Carlos

The first full day in Mexico and boy did we need a break from driving. I think my legs had locked up but after a good sleep things are getting back to normal. The weather today was over cast, the locals say it is very unusual, but at least there is no snow and we could go out without jackets.  There are orange and lemon trees just across the road with fruit on them, even in February, and gorgeous red and purple flowering bushes on the sides of the road and hanging over walls. Our little house is not luxurious but more than adequate and very conveniently located.

The first thing we had to do this morning was get some food which was quite an experience as we were not able to read  the labels but some how we came out with enough for supper.

Our friend S who travelled down with us was not too happy as he woke in the night to find his place full of water as pipe had burst, but it is being fixed today we hope. This afternoon we just stayed near our little house and walked on the beach. After supper we walked a short distance up the road and met up with a couple from our village 4500km from home.

We have not found a place with WiFi as yet, so that I could connect to the Internet but we were told tonight that there is a coffee shop by the marina that offers that so we will go down tomorrow or the next day. Maybe I will get some photos soon. Hubby is the photo guy but I get to carry it around.

Glad you arrived safely. Sorry the weather is crappy. We are not used to this cloudy weather, very unusual! Also it is usually warmer than this, we are absolutely freezing. I am sitting at the computer with a quilt wrapped around me! Hopefully it will get warmer in the next few days.
Enjoy your vacation.

I'm so glad you are there. What a wild ride.
Can't wait to hear of all your experiences. :) Hopefully the weather clears up soon.
We're having a cloudy cool day here in Houston too.

SOunds fantastic. We're having a bit of a heat wave here today -temps probably in the high 40s at least but tomorrow it is supposed to be business as is normal for February in this region. Translated -high chance for snow! Lovely! NOT!
Enjoy the warmth for all it's worth, Kid! And take lots and lots of pictures too.
