Yesterday we had the RV park posada at RV2.  Turns out that most of the non Mexican population of the Isla also showed up.  We provide the food in the form of a pot luck contribution and usually the owner of the RV park provides beer but not this year. He did provide a wonderful band to listen to and most especially to dance to.  The music started at 6PM but we were home by 5:25PM due to the horrific mosquitoes and noseeums.  I can’t dance right now anyway.  It would be torture to listen to that wonderful musical group and not dance.

This is about a third of those attending.

Arrival time was 3:30PM and we all started eating about 4PM and by 4:45PM there was not much left at all.  These tables were full of delicious   platters of food.

From 3:30 – 5:00PM there were three tents like this offering  a wide variety of items to be bid on as part of a silent auction.

That tall bottle  on the left was one of my donated items for the auction, a 1.75 litre bottle of Irish Creme Liqueur.  Last I saw it was going for 600 pesos, more than double what I paid for it.

There were a few items that were auctioned off live. I made a few bids here and there on the silent auction but we had to leave because of the bugs.  So at the moment I have no idea if I was successful in any of my biding.

An unexpected early evening for us.  So we ate popcorn and watched a Christmas movie.

    Damn bugs! Its been bad here too but they did spray something two days ago and now a bit better. Even lots of day time mosquitoes and you can only spray yourself so much. Sorry it shortened your evening.

      There was a free spray here on the Isla last weekend for anyone who wanted to take some. I asked the park manager who asked the owner who said that he was going to spray himself. Nothing thus far.

  2. I don’t recall you saying the bugs were so bad in other years, I hate those bloody things. I did get bit by ants on a chair by some trees in Ixtapa last year but didn’t see any noseeums.

      No we have had bugs but bearable during happy hour but not so much this winter. But we did have all that rain once we arrived. Ant bites can be very painful.

    Well watching a Christmas movie and eating popcorn sounds like a nice way to spend an evening … especially with no bugs!

    I, too, vote for the movie and popcorn. Good choice.

    I would vote for the movie and popcorn. To bad about the bugs, they seem very bad this year.
