More Fun in Mexico

We didn't do a lot on Monday. We went into town to do some shopping. Really good pricing. The cash registers first show pesos but if you want to pay in US dollars, it converts for you. You don't really need pesos as the people there are glad to take our dollars. We took some walks on the beach and went down to the beach for a little happy hour and to watch the sunset

              Tuesday was Valentine's Day and we went out to dinner at the Lighthouse  Restaurant and Bar, which is at a top of a hill overlooking the old Port. Good food and a great view

         Ellie and Alan, who we have become friends with, have friends, Frank and Margaret, who have a house here in Puerto Penasco. Along with Penny and Loretta, Frank and Margaret gave us a tour of the area including a few other nice RV Parks that had more beach front property than where we are staying If we didn't have commitments right after this trip, we would have liked to stay at one of them.We stopped at JJ Cantina in Cholla Bay but ended up going to a restaurant on Malacon Ave, which is a nice area full of shops and restaurants,  for some drinks with another great view of the sea. Another time, Frank and Margaret invited us all to their beautiful house. They have a great view of the ocean and have what is called a Margarita Patio which is up some outside stairs and a great . Sorry I didn't get some pictures of their house and views as they are just lovely. They had margaritas and appetizers and we all brought some as well. A really nice couple of afternoons.
