It was a strange day yesterday

I have been watching this guy since Monday morning.  He appeared somewhat furtive to me.  I even saw him hide  two small gym bags in the middle of that bush.  He is on the property to our right across the small lane.  I was concerned enough to mention it to the park manager late Monday afternoon.

Despite having two cruise ships in port it was a quieter day yesterday.  It was fun watching these two play in the surf for hours.

Once per month we have a community spaghetti dinner.  We were going to go but things got in the way.  Turns out that it was a wonderful evening with a live group playing wonderful dance numbers.  A great time was had by all.

However the palapa on the property beside us caught on fire.  I was the first to become aware of the problem and called for Colin and then went running to the park manager.

The RV Park hose which is very long as it is used to wet down the lane was hooked up and Darwin set about putting out the cause of the fire.  The squatter had been cooking!  Looks like his flame got too high.

Charred beams and palmas.  We found out this morning that he had been trying to use the park electricity and water earlier in the day yesterday but Ismael had strongly turned him away and told him that he was not allowed here.  The fellow is long gone and will not be allowed back in the area.

The first cruise ship was leaving yesterday when we began having some electrical issues within our RV.  Isolated to only our RV and to our house batteries.  But for a short period of time it was a concern.  Colin eventually tracked the problem to a battery that was shorting out.

So we were here watching the second ship sail out.  In the end we stayed home and I was spontaneous enough to make us shrimp stir fry.  Morale of the story is to always have 1/2 kilo of cleaned shrimp in the freezer.  I did need to borrow a carrot from Ferne though 🙂

    Good thing you spotted the fire when you did and that it didn’t do more damage!

    I agree, good thing you spotted the fire before it became a huge problem. Sometimes staying home is a good thing.
