Out and about

sunset1 We went out for a shrimp dinner last night and sat outside on the patio and watched the sun go down. It had been a beautiful day, warm and sunny although the locals say it is freezing and you see a few scarves and heavy coats about but for us tough BC types we were in shirt sleeves.

Today we went in to Guyamas and drove around a bit. We checked out the large department store called Lays that sells everything from auto tires to sugar, clothes to hardware, you name it they have it and much cheaper than we cDSC00584an buy in our part of northern BC. There were lots of different foods there and I have no idea what they were let alone how to cook them.

We then drove around and got a little lost in the city but got back to San Carlos and sat on our patio chatting for a while. Then we walked by the marina for an hour, checking out the boats and admiring the fishing skills of the pelicans, before coming back and making supper. It would be too expensive to eat out every evening so we have to show some discipline.

We went out for a walk in the town after dark and the music was starting up in some of the bars but it was quite quiet really. San Carlos is not as busy as I thought it would be and many restaurants are almost empty. I don't know if that is the evidence of the recession reaching here already. 

Tomorrow morning we are meeting our friend for breakfast at Barracuda Bob's and there is WiFi there so I can publish this and check my mail.

Glad you are getting out and about, checking out all the local stuff. You'd be tired of eating out pretty quick anyway so it is just as well to find your own supply to cook and eat.

I envy you! Glad you're enjoying yourselves. The road banks with southern exposure are peeking out from under the snow here in the great white north!
