I can't believe we have been here since March 23rd. The first week, while Bill's niece Arlyn was visiting, just flew by. We were ferried around to various places by friends Russ and Jeanette on Shazam as well as Arlene, Billīs momīs cousinīs sister-in-law (sounds more complicated than it is). It was fun taking several days off to play, but I felt like every time we did so, there was some boat-related issue that got back at us afterwards.
Arlyn left after the first week, so we turned to the ever-present boat task list. We have quite the list of things to do before we can leave and a fixed deadline (hurricane season). We have been working steadily, but the axiom of everything taking longer is multiplied when in Mexico, particularly when in a new city that requires a bus ride to get anywhere. Several friends have been kind enough to drive us around, something which is always appreciated. Even better is if the friends speak Spanish, although I'm getting good enough that often I manage on my own.
