Life's Lessons We have Learned

It seems that we may be "old and retired" but there are still some things that we can learn. Here are the a few of "life's lessons" we have learned since arriving in San Carlos.
1. When they say the music will start at 4:00 you need to remember "Mexican time" and not arrive for happy hour so early. Yesterday F&C and Senor Ping and I arrived at 3:30 to insure that we would have a good seat at Froggy's for the well known entertainer. In actuality he didn't start singing until 6:00. Maybe 2 1/2 hours early was a bit too early.
2. After arriving for happy hour and staying until after dark one should take care riding their bike home. I won't say anymore except that Fred led the way, I was hot on his trail and Senor Ping was bringing up the rear and it was the other biker that took a spill. I am sure everyone in the campground heard us giggling when we finally arrived home.
3. Walking can be dangerous when you don't look where you are going. This morning I did a face plant when Abbey and I got going in opposite directions and I was doing too much looking around. Luckily there were no injuries, just a scraped knee and hand and a red face.

I am sure we will learn a few other things while we are here but in any case this is the beginning of our next level of education.

Sounds like life lesson NUMBER ONE should have been 'drink more water than beer and tequila'.

I'm glad you're having fun- but I have to say, the mental picture of the four of you biking home from the bar at night is pretty hilarious...
