Friday, Jan 25, was decision day for us. Jim had been looking around at different RV Parks and Sites for the month of February. La Parota RV Park has mucho grass that tracks onto the patio and into the motorhome constantly. Makes for cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning. Do not like it. Also a few other things that we are not that happy with so as luck would have it he found a nice site in the next park over, Cruz Maria. I went with him and we talked to a couple of people and the manager. I guess we are moving on Monday. In the mean time we will be taking in the Home and Garden Tour. A tour of houses owned by Americans and Canadians that live here either 6 months or fulltime. This should be fun. Chandelier and view of the water from the first house. Beautiful!!! They have 2 bedrooms that they rent out. Kitchen, patio, barbeque and outdoor bathroom sink at second house! Loved the kitchen in this place. It was an up and down duplex. Mom and Dad have the main floor and son has the upper which he rents out most of the winter.
To get to #’s 5, 6, & 7 we had to catch a ride in a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Ours was in the back of a truck! Actually turned out to be the best ride as we had fresh air. Very hot going through the river and up the hills on dry, dusty roads. We were pleasantly surprised when we got to #5. Sweet little 800 sq. ft. Casa with outdoor bathroom and dipping pool at the end of the Palapa covered patio. They have solar power and the rooftop also has a outdoor bathroom and tent set up for guests. So cute and comfy!
#6 was another wonderful surprise. Amazing construction, built with curved walls. The Casa is for sale and rented out at the moment. The kitchen, living room and master bedroom all have fantastic views of the ocean through amazing windows. A lot of the furniture was constructed especially for the house and was beautifully made out of ironwood.
House # 7!
Wow! What a view! This one is owned by a couple from Alaska and is about 5 years old. Way up on the hill overlooking Lo de Marcos. This couple also live here most of the time, leaving to visit family, etc. when it is too hot and rainy. Well, by the time we got back down the hill, we were ready for a cool one and a bit of down time.
We invited our neighbours to come with us to the Beach restaurant for dinner.
