The band played on and on and on….

Yesterday was a mixed bag.  We headed in early in the morning to pick up my camera.  Apparently it was full of dust as in a lot of dust.  That could have happened in the Antelope Canyon, so much dust in the air there.  My camera hasn’t been cleaned for two years and the dust only started to show up in the last month so I have no complaints.  The cost to take the camera apart, clean it and check it and lubricate whatever was needed was only 300 pesos/$19.55CAD/$14.70USD.  I know of nowhere in Canada that I can get this camera fixed like this.

That large orange barrel is getting pushed further into the hole.

A freighter heading out to possibly Japan or ??

Safe travels.

We picked up two large garrafons of water and dropped off the laundry.  I noticed this sweet dog just sitting there.

It didn’t move its head nor appear to blink.  It looked so sad.

We discovered a new street that had been paved since last spring.  Getting much easier to get around the Isla.


I hope that you had a wonderful Saturday as well.  One of my highlights was to see the tiny green shoots of my kale and Swiss chard poking through the soil.  Only five days since seeding 😎

So last night there was a party, a wedding or possibly a quinceanera, just up the beach from us.  The band played and played and finally stopped at 2AM.  I slept until 8:30 this morning.

    Nice to get you camera all cleanup up and working again mine is dust proof and water proof so no issues with that, a rugged little camera.

      I am over the tip happy to have a dust free camera once again. Please share the details of your camera for me and my readers.

  2. Looks like you are finally settled in and ready to Enjoy your winter.
    Glad you have your Camera back and it is working properly.
    The puppy looks like he is bored.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It’s about time.

      Yeas Rick we are mostly settled. If I am starting to sit and read that means we are settled. Yeah!! Good call, that dog was bored.

    Catching up on reading since returning from Thanksgiving holidays. Contessa, took a closer look at your plants near your white wall. Yes, if you can, a close up of the “no-name” plants would help. But from what I can tell, we have a plant (now a bush or almost a tree) like this one near the salt-water river. Our nursery says ours is in the hibiscus family, but it is of the hardy variety because it grows well near salt water; the common name they give it is Rose of Sharon. Most of the blooming occurs here in SC in September and October, when other flowers here are not in bloom. All I have seen are single-medium size blooms on this shrub, not like the large size blooms of your other hibiscus. If your shrub is the same plant, you will be trimming it a lot; otherwise, it will eventually become like a small tree.

    Enjoying your sunsets again.

      Hey Dee, you were missed. Hope your Thanksgiving was extra special.

      I will get you a better photo, I promise. What you are calling the Rose of Sharon maybe what we call a Desert Rose here. Photos soon or remind me….you all know how busy I am….not!
