Work projects

There have been number of work projects happening in and near Tres Amigos.  Vic also had the fellows who worked on our RV do his.

His paint job was much more involved than ours.  The painters did a great job in protecting the RV next  site over.

Vic had his basements painted all the way around as well as the front and back end. Fabulous result.  Again a perfect paint match.

Next door to us, directly across the dusty road there has been some activity.  We have been told that it will be a new restaurant and later that it is only temporary for Semana Santa.  I guess we will find out next November.

Looks like a lot of work for a temporary project.

Just the other day a few loads of palm fronds were brought in.  A few managed to find their way onto the roof but the rest are still on the ground.  These people work only a few hours per week on this project.

This was an Erik project. He had to take out the window to reconstruct a new window opening mechanism.

Someone thought that it would be a good idea to have some storage sheds available for rent here at Tres Amigos.

It is a very slow going project.

Here they are burning old cardboard egg cartons to keep the noseums away.

These sheds were supposed to be ready by March 15th.  Not even close.

Just a few days ago they poured the cement roof.  Custom doors still need to be made.

We were supposed to have one of these sheds but as it got closer to our departure day and they were not ready we became concerned.  Colin did a  very rough square foot measurement  of what we had to store vs the new storage space.  We had about 400 extra sq ft.  That means that all of our stuff had to be perfectly packed.  We decided to stick with our existing huge storage space.  The thing is the price is the same including hiring the taxi trucks to move our stuff.  So tomorrow is the last day we can store our things.  We made the right decision to stick with what we had.  We have friends leaving here Friday and they have no idea what they are going to do with their stuff as they were counting on the new storage area to be ready.

We woke up to a high tide. This tent and hammock sleepers  were just that close to the tide line.

After another day of packing as well as cleaning the inside of the RV, including the fantastic fans ( not just the screens) and all the window screens ( thank you Colin ) we were rewarded with a bit of a sunset.

    I feel like I am there just reading your blog and the photos.
    Great decision regarding keeping your bodega. Is it Wednesday you leave?

  3. Too bad about the storage not being available but good that you kept your old storage, as always I am sure things rarely get built on time, or on manana time. Perhaps the day after manana time. Is there not decent toilet paper in Mexico now? I know in the past we’ve gotten some tough toilet paper but this last time the hotels we stayed in had good product.

      Yes there is but for us it is so much easier to pick it up in Kelowna and load it into the RV and not have to deal with it again all winter. Why spend the gas to take the car into Mazatlan to pick it up when we already have it with us.

    Good thing you went with your old storage, I think it is always better to be safe than chance the units were ready on time.
