Woo hoo! Walking out under the palapa yesterday morning to drink my cup of coffee and watch the ocean, there was an exquisite sight. SURF!
The bay has been as calm as a lake since I arrived. Not yesterday. It did not take long for the word to travel to the surfers in the area and by mid-afternoon there were six surfers out there riding the waves at the surf break which just so happens to be right in front of the property. What a treat to
It brought back memories of back in the 60's when my husband and I persisted in our quest to be able
to surf off the coast of Florida in the Gulf of Mexico. What fun. Somewhere I have photos of our adventure. The children were staying with their grandmother and we actually had a week to ourselves! It was an infrequent happening.
No sooner was I watching the waves when a car pulled up to the gate with a couple of guys about 18 or 19 who wanted to clean the coconut trees in exchange for the coconuts. There are nine huge coconut trees on the property that needed some fronds removed as well as dead husk stuff.
These two young men worked for three hours - up and down the high extension ladder. Cutting the dead debris, the fronds and then the clumps of coconuts. It too was a sight to behold. They left with the back of their car loaded to the roof with coconuts...........
I never left the house yesterday. There was enough activity going on. From one thing to another.
