Normally, our dog Frida wakes us up with a kiss while we are still sleeping. (George loves this…NOT) This morning, due to the change to Daylight Savings Time, we woke up before Frida!
After some gardening, we walked to a really nice restaurant to meet some new friends.
On our way, down the main street of our town, these horses were strolling. No one seemed very surprised about this.
Both our dog and this restaurant are named Frida after the famous artist Frida Kahlo.
The restaurant is also an inn..
It is very beautiful. We sat outside and ate some very good (and big) chef salads.
This little guy begged at our table…
We met up with a couple there who live here full-time now, having retired here from California. They had contacted us through a gringo Facebook page. After lunch together, they took us into town and showed us the best places for various types of shopping. We stopped at the pork store, beef store, chicken store, veg store, fruit store, and cheese store. Fun! We bought a bunch of fruit and veg to stock up. They took us to their house, located in a development on the outskirts of town, and invited me to go line-dancing with them tomorrow.
Back home, George created some artsy decor. When the tree guys had been working on the palm trees the other day, a huge seed pod fell down. George turned it into a serving tray for fruit and veg..
We caught the local bus back into town. We can get on and off quite close to our house. It will be very convenient.
DINNER: Asian stir-fry with lots of vegetables and some more of the leftover rotisserie chicken. (This is meal #meal for from the one chicken we bought).
