It’s our last few days here and we are able to take advantage of it.
The beaches are still closed but the beachside restaurants are able to open. We had been to Bugambilias Restaurant a few days ago but as Rosalie and I were up town finishing up our change of address with INM we decided to have a few drinks without the kids. it was great!
However, we had promised them a day in town so today after Rosaie had her hair cut (aren’t you jealous?) we first went to a hardware store to pick up a better sun screen cover for the car. Then we went back to Bugambilias for our final meal out for this season. We also sadly, said goodbye to Melaque for this season.
It’s difficult packing right now. What do we take? What do we leave? It’s made easier by Raquel saying that we can leave whatever we want. Over the last few years we have collected a lot of stuff. Tables, chairs, loungers. crockery, cutlery; fortunately most of this stuff we can just leave until next season.
I had to wash and cover the car so that it’s ready for next October. We thought we would store some of our stuff in the trunk, but mostly we left everything where it is. I washed and sprayed the bikes with silicon spray to prevent rust and got those put away. We don’t seem to use them since we got the car, so maybe we’ll sell them next year.
Garry and Patti and us put together all our old clothes and give them to Omar. They also decided to go home with just carry on so we are storing their stuff for them. It makes life easier at the airport.
There was a lot of food left over so Rubii can take it home. She has about two kilometres to ride her bike so we will loan her our cooler bag until we come back.
The last swims have been taken. The water is beautiful and really cooling when we step out into a bit of a breeze.
We’re looking forward to being home but it’s still a sad day.
