Kona was first up this morning, and
patrolled the beach and reported everything was in order.
After coffee under the plapa on the
beach, it was time for a swim. The water was very warm and felt so
good to swim in the ocean, I don't know if its the salt feeling, the
extra buoyancy or that I grew up swimming in the slat water, but I
kind of prefer the salt water to the fresh. I think I understand why
Kona likes its so much, but I refused to chase the ball
After beach play time we had Hazel
loaded and were heading for Veracruz. The drive was beautiful, some
four lane divided highway some small towns, and no issues with the
Policia. Cathie did a super job directing us through town, along the
beautiful ocean boulevard. We found a telcel shop, and got the 3G
stick sorted out, “needed a patch for windows 7” now we can get
on line most anywhere, so that is good. Still can not reply to
emails, we are receiving, but get this error when we try to send,
An error occurred sending mail: The
mail server sent an incorrect greeting: edtncm03 bizsmtp ESMTP
server not available, your ip is balcklisted by spamhaus
Not sure if that error is in English of
Spanish, but either way no comprendo.
After cruising Veracruz Cathie amazed
me once again getting us to where the book said the campsite was.
Once there “here” we met William and his wife Beatrice and their
son William. They explained this
is no longer a camp site, and we were more then welcome to camp in
their back yard. They are changing this property from a restaurant
where a few could camp in the backyard to their retirement home.
After a tour of their lovely new home, and being introduced to their
three workers they left to their home in Veracruz for the evening,
and we had a nice visit with Luis beside the river. Luis works here
for 8 days then goes home to his wife and two kids for a week. Then
comes back and does another weeks work, he is looking forward to
seeing his family again in a couple days
have all the screens that Cathie made covering the windows, and they
are keeping out what few bugs there are. There doing a great job,
they just attach to the outside frame of the window with magnets
sewed into the edging.
I think the bed is calling.
Noches from Veracruz.
