What does one do in Mexico on a Monday? Well, about the time the bell would be ringing back home and everyone would be scrambling in from the icy cold playground I was heading out on my walk. Abbey and I left the campground and walked along the water side of the street. We stopped to watch the pelicans dive for food and then headed down the street to check out the shops in San Carlos. After our walk Colleen and I rode our bikes to the outdoor market. It was quite facinating to watch the vendor (Tony) and his staff set out the produce and fresh meat and fish that they sell each day. There were boxes and baskets full of every fruit and vegetable imaginable as well as huge coolers full of fresh fish, shrimp, scallops, and packaged meat. Tony also sells fresh bread, tortillas (still warm), nuts, dates, coffee and other items you might be looking for to plan your menu for the day. I felt like a child in a candy shop. I know that the next time I go I will take a camera because I am sure Meg and her food blog friends might be interested. After an early lunch we golfed 18 holes at the local golf course with Fred and Colleen. Senor Ping, F&C all had good rounds and I was quite proud of the fact that I did not loose a ball in 18 holes. Of course Senor Ping did have to add that I had lost one golf club (my old 7 iron) but hopefully someone will turn it in to the clubhouse and I will pick it up the next time we play a round. The golf course is surrounded by beautiful homes and gorgeous scenery and the day was warm with just a hint of a breeze so it was a most enjoyable way to pass the afternoon. After the golf game we headed to the marina to see the boats and have a refreshment or two. Again I will have to take a camera on our next trip so that I can share with all of you the view as we sipped our refreshments and feasted on fresh salsa and tortilla chips.
By the time we arrived back at the campground it was time for a shower and some grilled porkchops. I am sure it will be an early night as we are settling in to watch CSI Miami and to catch up on news from Saskatchewan.
