Playing at the Beach

Since it is a long weekend in celebration of Mexico's Independence Day, we decided to relax here awhile. Holiday weekends are best spent in one spot.
This morning the weather cleared, the sun came out and shown glorious on a perfect day at the beach! We walked and jogged along the beach this morning and it was windy, but lovely. It is not a crowded beach, and just gorgeous!
We got internet today! I finally was able to get on the Yuri Campground satelite and have a week of catchup to do. Will try to get some pictures up tomorrow too. Here's their website: http://www.rvdealba.com/
The nice guy, Mike from New Hampshire who helps here at the campground, again played personal concierge for us, as he does for everyone here.
Gus is originally from Brooklyn and then Jersey, but has been in Mexico for 10 years. His restaurant was delightful with bright lavender and yellow walls and a wonderful, cozy atmostphere. Quintessential! Also delightful was that after the cooking was done, Gus joined us, as did another friend that we've enjoyed a few times at the campground, Larry. So we had a great time talking about life in Mexico and how terrific it is.
Gus said that he has never felt safer than where he lives now. He thought that if you stayed away from the border towns and areas where you probably should not be anyway, you have nothing to fear.
The pizza at Gus' was so good that we bought a second one to bring back to the RV for tomorrow, although I think Charles has eaten some already.
Poor Charles has a terrible black eye from my kids playing around at the pool our first night here. Something about coming down the water slide and someone's elbow to the eye- anyway, it looks worse every day, but he thinks nothing is broken. I'll have to upload a picture of his shiner. Will Charles survive Mexico? That is the question.
Speaking of Charles... he was reading his school's Language Arts book today and it was about Mexico! Love that!
I tried to call Ned on the Magic Jack and I could hear him, but he couldn't hear me.
Emails: Just downloaded emails and need to catch up.
Thanks for the nice comments on the blog- Karen & Terry, you always make me laugh. Jazy appreciated the votes. I haven't read her blog yet, but she started laughing when I read your comments. Nice picture, by the way! :) Linda and Mando, great to get your note too! Miss you all!
Jonna, & Mimi, we're hoping to get to Merida in about a week and will hopefully be able to figure out the phones when we get further down the road.
I'll try to catch up tomorrow with everyone else. My email is having a flaky time getting out, so please be patient. Relax, we're in Mexico! :)
