I had a wonderful Mexican Independence Day! I got a new dress for the occasion got to see the parade went to a performance of Mariaches with friends then went for dinner and dancing and more special holiday food that was superb. I was busy all day going from venue to venue and it isn’t over yet. This saturday there is big celebration at the Mexican Naval station and I and my neighbors have tickets. Last years Naval celebration was spectacular so I am looking forward to this years celebration.
Here are a few photos of the big day;
More school kids marching
Raising the Flag
Navy patrol boat
Very good marchers
Little school kids are parading too
Here comes the parade
School kids marching
The interesting thing about the school children marching the ones in the front holding banners and flags are the ones with the highest grades. We have a lot of schools here in San Felipe so each school was represented.
My new dress for the holiday
I had the dress made in a local shop here and I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly it was sewn and the fit was great. I will wear it at the celebration at the Naval Station saturday night.
The work continues at the new Cantina at Pete’s Camp
I have been looking for a house in town and I have seen a few but I haven’t found THE one just yet so still looking.

Looking into the front yard of small house 2 of 3 photos
Back yard of a small inexpensive house 1of 3 photos
So the search goes on looking for that one house with the right price, condition and space. Fun searching for the right house. Life is busy here with all the holidays both American and Mexican as well as the social events. The social scene is about to start and there will be dinners out and at homes, parties and lectures; all kinds of things to do and be part of. Not a bad life I would say.
