I can’t seem to find time to catch up on the blog – all I can say is have patience, I’ll get there. Meanwhile, work on my new house is cruising right along. Every day brings a new unexpected issue to be dealt with, sometimes a devastatingly important issue. My mornings are totally shot. I am managing to continue the morning beach walks but that’s about it. With luck I will find some rearrangement of time that allows more blogging.
About the middle of last week, Nov 5 or 6, the weather finally really broke. Daytime temps dropped noticably and nighttime temps lost about 10 F – we had some low 60′s and now are below 70F every night, even the cloudy nights. The days are shorter and you can tell. It’s dark by 6 pm or so. The general consensus is that this was the longest and hottest summer that most residents, foreign or Mexican, can recall. I concur. It was hot for a long time.
Last night I had to close the trailer windows and look for a second blanket. Ah, the delights of fall!!!
While tourism is definitely down, more people are coming to town finally. Part time residents are returning also. So there are more bodies around, more cars on the streets and less parking places in town. Welcome to the season, however it finally reveals itself.
