Chasing Storms...Part 4

I took a drive around town and all seems to be in good shape.
The people ferry is running again.
I stopped by Dave's and we tried to take a drive to the other side of the island. We tried the south side first but that was blocked off past the hotel zone then tried the cross island road. That was also blocked past the ruins. I don't understand why they wouldn't let us go around but Melgar was looking good. I went home and spent the rest of the day cleaning.
The next few days went by quick. We got to drive around the island and the beaches looked the cleanest I have ever seen them. The photos don't show it but they looked beautiful.
I still wanted to clean the cabinets in the kitchen. They had all this white mold growing on them. I grows on all the wood in the house.
I don't know if I got all of it but gave it a try. I hate cleaning.
I also cut down the front door so it won't swell shut anymore. That can take awhile because you have to locate the tools necessary then borrow them.

A few of the afternoons after a hard day of working at home were spent at Woody's having a few beers.
I happened to be there when a guy proposed to his wife. He got down on his knees and did what was expected of him. Mauro was playing the background music. Everyone had a tear in their eye. It was very nice.
Gandhi was even having a good time.
I stopped by to say hello to Gene at kelly's.
The town square is still kind of dead with not much going on.
I was getting bored so stopped by the movies to see what was playing. Nothing that I was interested in. I am still listening to my one radio station at home.
I am still cooking my meals at home but had a taste for fried chicken on Halloween. I stopped by the Bodega and bought a box of 4 pieces for about $38 pesos. Their chicken is good.
All the cashiers were dressed up for Halloween. I even bought a bag of candy to give out but didn't have anyone come over.
Seeing as I have been working hard these past few days and have to leave soon, I thought it a good idea to take a small vacation for a little R&R. Tomorrow David and I are going to Isla Holbox, Rio Lagartos, and Valladolid for a few days.

The beaches on the east side did appear to be cleaner but upon further inspection by us...the trash had just been covered by the blowing sand. There was a lot of good seaglass to be found tho and some other little washed up treasures I brought home to remind me of my first Tropical Storm.
I love how your girlfriend is just like, "oh, ok, ur going to CZM to try to experience a hurricane, sure thing hon, perfectly normal to want to do that, have a great time!"
I look forward to reading about and seeing pics of your trip to Holbox with David.

Along with the sea glass do you ever collect Sea Beans? I've got a whole collection of those along with my collection of doll parts.

Doll parts huh? you find a lot of those?
I was racking my brain trying to figure out something I could do with shoes/flip flops - all those singles with no mate. A pity.
