Oysters and Auction and Goodbye to Mexico

Alan and Ellie and us decided to go look for the oyster farms we had heard about and so headed out on our search. We had been told in what direction they were and to just follow the signs. Well, we turned off when we saw a sign and found an outdoor area set up but no one there. We went down another road and saw a small house with an oyster set up in front. We saw someone sitting in front of his house and Ellie yelled out the window "abierto" (open) and he answered si and put on his  shoes and walked down to the water and pulled up a tray of oysters. We split a dozen oysters and added lime and different hot sauces. They were good sized and tasty but really salty due to coming straight from the sea and rinsed in the same salty water. No complaints though.


We continued on and this time, we found a place with a small restaurant where we ordered another dozen oysters and Ellie and I ordered ceviche which was very good.

      Well another interesting adventure.

Before we came, we all were asked to bring items for an auction to be held here where the money raised would go to various charities in the area We donated a good bottle of wine and a gift certificate from Harvest Hosts that they had given us in Quartzsize when we asked to buy a gift certificate for their program  for the charity  auction. We also had an almost new portable dvd player we never use that we gave. There were small silly items like hats that have what looks like hair on top(great for those follicle challenged) and fancy underwear modeled by Ed, a past president of the group(very professional job, Ed) to wines and rv products like a nice patio mat, cookbooks and art work. The auction was after a catered dinner and margaritas were flowing, increasing the fun and helping out the bidding.                                                     
Almost the whole group went on a sunset cruise on Saturday afternoon/evening More margaritas and snacks. And dancing was going on. Lots of fun.Some of us  went out to dinner at another restaurant in town.
Puppy Love

Savannah has had to stay in her crate while we have been out and about. However, she has had a great time with her new best friend, Reggie. It took a few days but they started playing around, wrestling and chasing each other while off lease. Savannah will miss Reggie when we leave.
There was another catered dinner on Sunday night and Monday morning we said adios to Mexico. We followed Alan and Ellie and Reggie over the easy border crossing and said our good byes. We are spending a night at Organ Pipe and then onto Casta Grande to get two more solar panels and then to Lake Havasu to get more MCD shades put in No more curtains. Hooray!!
