The 27th found us attempting to venture outside as things were beginning to warm up slightly, but the breeze was still chilly. We set up a windblock for our chairs just below the sidewalk, and watched in great amusement as we saw first an ATV get stuck in the sand, followed by the Hummer that came out to rescue them, followed by the Jeep that came out to rescue the Hummer (kind of reminds you of the Corb Lund song ...."The Chev got stuck and the Ford got stuck, but the Chev unstuck when the Dodge showed up, but the Dodge got stuck in the tractor rut, which eventually pulled out the Ford"). It didn't take much to amuse us at this point in time - we were just happy to get outside!
We ventured outside for a morning run on the 28th, but again the wind was pretty biting. We managed to get chased along a fenceline by about a dozen stray dogs that had formed a pack, but fortunately none of them meant us any serious harm. The life of a dog in Mexico is a pretty sad one. They are skinny and wander the streets.
Terry and I joined Jim and Nancy for supper out in town, as it was their last night in Puerto Penasco. We went to a great restaurant, but were amazed at the number of mariachi bands (and solo performers) that showed up at the same time. It would have been chaos had everyone started serenading all at once.
The 29th was a beautiful day - sunny, warm and minimal wind. We decided to take advantage of the weather and try out the nearby golf course. We had a great game - had a chance to golf just the two of us, and enjoyed the course. The area surrounding Puerto Penasco is like the Sahara Desert - sand, sand everywhere, as you can see by the picture. This is a shot taken from the golf course, and it shows why the area is an ATV paradise.
