We had plans today to meet up with friends from back home near our summer spot on Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada. Well actually a friend, we know Willie but not her husband Rick. At 8:30 am Doug, Riley and I were in the Dogsled heading toward Mexico. We met up with Willie and Rick at 9 am at the bottom of the ramp as you head for the border. What a wonderful day to spend with them.
|Our friends Rick and Willie. He's a friendly fella, honest. |
|Rick, Willie and Riley. Doug was getting his eyes tested. |
We enjoyed our first ever time in Los Algodones, Mexico. Rick and Willie have been many times and so it was nice to cross over with veterans that know their way around. I can safely say we all enjoyed ourselves and the company was fantastic. I must say I didn't get a photo of Doug, somehow I missed that. Sorry Doug.
|Love the bright colours. |
|Covered sidewalks which are usually full of vendors. |
|Very narrow streets here in Los Alogdones. |
We made a couple of purchases (which I'll show another day), had lunch, toured a bit of the town and just enjoyed the experience. Thanks Willie and Rick for being our tour guides. We look forward to seeing you folks again!!
|A fountain in the courtyard where Willie, Riley and I had pedicures for $18 US each. |
|The second fountain in the same courtyard. |
|I like the cactus!|
We arrived back home at 4:30 pm, so you know it was a busy day. Yuma was happy to see us all and raced around for a while, came over for pets and attention and finally headed back home.
|A courtyard near a very nice hotel. |
|The hotel is doing some renovations. |
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed seeing the few photos of Los Algodones that I snapped even though they aren't the greatest but you get the flavour at least. I was busy enjoying the experience and took very few photos.
|This lady made us a beautiful sign and was using the fire to dry the paint. |
|Sandra used a paint brush for the cactus and the letters, but not for anything else. |
Until next time...
Take care, be safe,
