Woke up to a clear blue sky this morning. Another fabulous beach walk. Found some unique shells and I must say I’m amassing quite a collection.
On Facebook I’m noticing a lot of folks back home are posting pictures of the snow that started falling yesterday. Dale says there was about 8 inches of snow in Minneapolis. So glad we missed it. Our timing for this trip couldn’t’ve been better. I’d like to say I planned it that way but everyone knows I’m not that all-knowing and powerful.
Lunch at the Pool Side Cafe which is in Las Villas Hotel which is on the Estrella del Mar resort. We sat outside and a very sweet cat came up and sat by my feet while I ate my crunch chicken tacos. Dale had the tuna fajitas.
A couple days ago Dale talked to Dianne on the phone and she gave him the name of the store John goes to to get cigars when he is here. It’s called Sanborns and it’s actually a department store. I purchased two Te-Amo Churchills and a lighter. I’ll leave the lighter and one of the cigars for John since I smoked one of his last night.
We drove into Mazatlan to pick up cigars and some food to get through our last day tomorrow. We also filled up the rental car so we can return it with a full tank.
We went to dinner tonight at Los Delfines which is in the Las Villas hotel here at the Estrella del Mar resort. I had the surf and turf of shrimp and steak. Dale had the fish special. I, of course, started out with a couple of martinis. I watched the waiter make them and kudos to him for shaking the hell out of ‘em. Sadly, they were rather weak for martinis. I think he reversed the vermouth to gin ratio. The t.v. in the bar was set to VH1 Classic which was a helluva lot of fun to watch. Dancing On the Ceiling by Lionel Ritchie was a scream. When we got to the restaurant there was a reallly drunk and obnoxious American woman who was climbing on barstools and having the waitstaff take pictures of her and her date posing in sombreros. I tell ya - some people.
After the restaurant Dale and I returned to the condo for our final evening. We hit the hot tub again and I lit up the Te-Amo Churchill I purchased today and enjoyed the warm water and sight of the cresent moon as I puffed happily away. How relaxing. Dale and I both commented how we’re both going to really miss this place.
