Flora, Fauna and Rocks

It’s been a while since I felt like I had much to say. I spent most of last week dealing with the closing of my house in Albuquerque. Not much to say about it except it’s done, thankfully. It’s kind of bittersweet for me. I really loved that house. Do I have any regrets? Heck no!

It’s been pretty hot and humid here the past week. Yuck. But, the plants are loving it. Here are some pictures I took around the neighborhood and our yard.


A popular pastime around here is rock stacking. Looks like some skill is involved, and possibly some Super Glue.


Here is a picture of our very small backyard, the site of our future swimming pool.


The sellers of this house left behind some interesting yard art. I think they were all made at ceramics classes at the Club Deportivo.


Here is a picture of the front of the house they are building across the street from us. It’s kind of starting to look like a house.

We were invited to James 60th birthday party last week. It was at the Palapa Griega, a restaurant on the beach. The Dudes, a popular local band, was playing loudly so it was hard to have a conversation. Crowded, noisy restaurants seem to be a popular venue for parties here. Not exactly our cup of tea, but we had fun anyway.

I wanted to share this picture of Gringo Pete’s Condo/Hotel new paint job. I think he needs to hire a proofreader for his painters.
