Friday night I went out to dinner at a place called Sharky’s. It was interesting to see so many people out for dinner after thursday’s feast. Of course it was Surf and Turf night; Steak and Lobster and from the looks of it and the way folks were eating it this is a big hit with the locals. I opted for something a little smaller breaded fillet of fish with rice and veggies. Well, I don’t like steak anymore and the lobster looked too big for me. The fish was good and filling especially because it came with corn soup.
I returned home to the Beach House and spent the evening on the computer while listening to soft music and watching the fire in the fireplace. Yes the fireplace works and I have bought some artificial logs to burn in it, looks pretty.
This morning I awoke and I heard the fog horn in the distance and sure enough the fog was rolling in, welcome to the Pacific Coast! Now I’m trying to decide to stay one more day or leave. Isn’t there a song about “Should I Stay Or Should I Go” ? Oh, here it is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BN1WwnEDWAM
Here is a picture of the fireplace in action;
Here is a photo of the fog about to roll in;
I’d post a Photo of the fog, but what’s the point?
I needed to visit my new house in Punta Banda to sign some papers and to check the house out for any repairs and or improvements. I have been here since tuesday afternoon and I’m still in love with the place. The weather has been very good not to cold just cool and sunny. The sound of the waves coming ashore along with watching them is very relaxing to me. At night I can hear the waves and puts me to sleep. I find myself watching the waves for a very long time they are a great time waster.
I thought the location of the house would be good for a view of Ensenada lights at night and I was right ! This photo below doesn’t do the lights justice but it is the best I can do without a tripod and timed exposure. I have been busy shopping for the house. The house will be used as a rental from time to time so it needed a microwave oven. I got one at COSCO which is about a half hour drive from here. I also got some pillows for the couch and a few items for the kitchen.
Here is the photo of the lights at night.
Here is a video of the waves coming ashore click on the photo to get the video.
My trip has been a successful one in that I have gotten a list of things to be done all minor and through the rental agent have someone to do it! I’m really liking this house and through the agent I have learned more about its history which explains some of its quirks. I love quirky houses 🙂

I got up about 0530 today as it was market day and the early bird gets her worm. I was on the look-out for a couple of things for the house and if someone showed up to sell them I wanted to be there and get it before another old bird did. So I was off into the early morning cold and wind. I didn’t find everything I wanted I did find two palm trees at a reasonable price, asparagus for dinner, tomatoes to go with the asparagus and some bird seed to entice the little birdies to my yard. I had a chat with some of the folks I know there and looked at the puppies for adoption. I didn’t find a puppy I fell in love with all they had were going to be big dogs and I am looking (sort of ) for a lap dog if I get one.
I have been thinking about doing laundry; 1) I have enough for almost two loads, 2) the Laundromat is a warm place today and would be nice to sit and read while the machines thrash my clothes clean. On the other hand I would have to go out into the cold and wind again and I don’t want to do that. Maybe I’ll do the laundry tomorrow instead-what’s the rush?
