Musical interlude

It came to Colin’s attention late Sunday evening and again early Monday morning that Tom and Mandy from RV2 were looking for a site to host some international musicians who are currently playing here in Mazatlan.  Or course Colin offered our site.  Tom and Mandy did all the work, purchasing and preparing the food.  Colin set up our site, added chairs & small tables as well as an extra shade umbrella.  I decided that we needed to add at least a salad which I made along with a bowl of fresh cut sweet pineapple and cookies for dessert.

We had no idea show many were coming nor how long they would be here.  Turns out they arrived around 1:30 PM and were gone by 6PM.  They were here for a short time but it was intended and a good deal of music and jamming was involved.

Good thing that Colin is traveling with five guitars this winter. They were well used.

Mandy cooked the shrimp  and lobster.  She did all she could do so that I did not have to be involved or moving about too much.

Long time blog readers Linda and Russell just happened to drop by to visit and were treated to some special music.

I hope that you enjoy the following two minute video which includes Colin playing with the best of the best. The bio of the players….
Eugene Hideaway Bridges, songwriter, guitarist, band leader, released 7 albums, entertains globally. Has played with the greatest including BB King.
Rick Reed, Bassist, guitarist, has played with Paul Butterfield Blues Band and Canned Heat.
Benito Meschoulam, band leader of SantanaWays, a Santana tribute band in San Diego.
Colin Jewall – who’s that? Guitarist -Classical, Blues, Rock, Photographer, Traveller.

Quite fun as all of the guitars belong to Colin.  The full screen option also is working.

Great end to a special day.

Sadly I did just a bit too much moving about, taking photos, fetching serving spoons and dishes, serving wine and beer, etc.  My knee was not very happy Tuesday morning when Octvavio my physio guy came for my ultrasound treatment.  Oops, I did too much and had some swelling due to too much movement and just maybe a bit of ligament stretching.  Colin really thought that I would just stay put and do nothing.  You would think that after 33 years he would realize that it would be impossible for me to stay still and do nothing and watch people enjoying my lovely site here.  I love to be sure that my guests have everything that they need plus more. He said that he would look after everything but there was no way that I was going to disturb him while he had the opportunity to play with these extraordinary special musicians.  No worries, here I am 48 hours later and after being back on bedrest I am much better.

    What a great way to spend the afternoon!

  4. That would be quite the Honor to play with such talented Musicians.
    Of course you won’t just sit around when things need doing. Now rest up and let your knee heal.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It’s about time.

      Colin was most inspired. I am resting up but Colin headed out again tonight to see some of the live music. Who knows when this caliber of talent will return here.

  5. Looks like a fun afternoon – but – you really need to take this time for self care and not worry about catering to others needs!

      Duly noted. It was such an honor to have these people here that I just has to be involved. Ow back on house arrest for a few days.

    Sounds like a wonderful afternoon but to bad you hurt your knee, stay off it and relax now that the music is over 🙂
