The last week

This is a bit of what Colin and I have been doing over the past several days when not with Rae.  FYI Colin’s little incident happened last Wednesday and he was fine the next day ( after sleeping for almost 20 hours ).

Colin washed the car and very carefully we got it moved under the palapa out of the sun.  He then spent a full day waxing it.

He later did a very thorough interior clean.

Wouldn’t you love to be sitting there watching the waves?

Sundays we get a lot of motorbikes visiting from other villages.

Late Sunday afternoon we were invited to a presentation of Bob & Marjorie’s 21 day trip to Vietnam last November.  Very informative.

Carefully backing the car out Monday morning. Colin was on his way to pick up Sofia, my masseuse.  Only one more massage to go.  Last one until November.

Our bougainvilleas are getting so large and almost taking over the yard.  When I planted those eight years ago they were only two to three feet tall.

We spent a few hours yesterday cutting them back and down.  Some were over the top of the palapa and  others were very close to the RV.  So major surgery was involved.

An iPhone sunset last night.

    Do your bougainvilleas get water when you are not there?

      Yes, I give Ismael some money to care for my plants when we are away. However the summer is the rainy season with high humidity so they are well cared for.

    Nice to get those things taken care of , and everything wrapped up before you head on out.

  5. Wow, I bet that was a great presentation! Vietnam. How cool!

      It was very interesting but being a tour it was extremely expensive. But with the language barrier perhaps that was the best way to go.
