Pool Is Open....Come on down!

New Palm trees planted....




Casita- March 15th

Block work is about 75% complete.  Roof materials arriving on Monday.  Roof work will likely start on Tuesday.  In a little over a week we should have a roof on.


Well was drilled on Thursday.  2 meters of water at 20.8 Meters down.  Now the amateur plumbers will have to figure out how to get the water to the surface....learning new skills everyday.

 Looks like the guy sitting down on the right is having a rough day.....He needs more beach time!



Casita Construction update. March 8th

Casita foundation now about 95% complete.  Foundation should be done on Monday. Electrical rough-in at about 75%.  Plumbing started.  Block work starts on Monday or Tuesday so we should have walls by end of week.

Moving along nicely.



Of course we still have time for the beach at the end of the day!



Some more unwanted wildlife.....Some things just shouldn't be allowed on the beach in public!!!!!


The Casita

Started work on casita yesterday.  Foundation is about 50% complete.  Temporary water onsite.  we should have the final hookup for town water this week sometime.

A few unwanted guests....




Internet installed at the rental house today.  Good to be back in communication again.


Lot clearing almost complete. Driveway fill arrives in the morning.  Getting quotes from local builders, so should be able to get going immediately.


Found an awesome restaurant on the beach today.  No menu, just fish, lobster, shrimp and ceviche.  Food was incredible.  scenery amazing. 

Dad had road meat yesterday(Shrimp from a roadside restaurant) and survived, much to his disbelief.
