The Flu Flew in

I haven’t been doing many updates lately. Partly because every week it’s about the same. Peggy & I take an about a 2 1/2 mi. early morning beach walk. We take a break under the palapas and then come back to the RV to read our books on our two Kindle’s. The Kindle’s sure have cut down on a lot of book weight. We brought bags full of paper back books in the past and traded with people as we traveled. Now, I downloaded about 100 books. Whatever you buy or get free on one Kindle is available for no charge on any other Kindle registered to the same Amazon account.

About two weeks ago Reed & Elaine’s children & grandchildren flew in for a one week visit. They had a great time. The only problem is that several of them were in various stages of the Flu which I guess is running rampant in Albuquerque. After a few days I came down with a good case of the Flu. I was sick and feeling miserable for about a week. Peggy did fine and gave me some good care.

When I got better, even the beach brightened up with a big rainbow. Speaking of the weather, this is the place to be a weather forecaster. It’s pretty much the same everyday. Low 67oF – High 84oF with a 30% chance of rain. Some days it’s very windy with big waves, other days if the light wind is out of the West the ocean is like glass.

After I was feeling better I got my kayak out again for a little exercise. It’s fun to paddle up to Puerto Adventuras or paddle into some of the Cenotes that dump right into the ocean. The campground this year has been almost 100% occupied everyday. We have had several pass though on their way to travels in Central America or across the rest of Mexico. Most of us just stay put for the Winter.

Our plans are to leave here on March 1st. We will head directly to the border and go to see an insurance adjuster in McAllen, TX to see what they will pay for the damage that we did to RV when we were in Ciudad Valles.
