I know, I am a day late with my blog update. While I am not dead I did get sick and I blame the dodgy eggs I had for breakfast on Thursday. By Thursday evening I was feeling a little off but generally okay and then through the night I started getting chills and frequent bathroom breaks.
Since Araceli was arriving yesterday we had planned to stay around the hotel until she arrived anyway and I spent much of that time laying down feeling achy and reading my book. Araceli arrived at about noon and after getting her stuff dropped off in the room she joined us on a bouncy bus ride into town. Rather stupidly we sat in the last row and with my achy body and bad suspension I felt pretty beat up when we arrive.
Fortunately there was a good restaurant right where we hopped off the bus so we stopped in for some lunch. I ordered the tortilla soup and was going to split an order of fish tacos with Francene but struggled to eat even half the soup. Too bad because it was tasty just too much for me. After eating we stopped off a the place that sells the frozen chocolate bananas that have a candy filling and walked down to the beach so Araceli could get an idea of what the town is like.
Soon after I was really dragging and they kindly suggested we go back to the hotel. After chatting and catching up for a bit I took a showed and crawled into bed. The rest of the afternoon I spent resting fitfully and making trips to the bathroom after which I worked of staying hydrated.
That was the rest of my evening, sleeping or resting on and off and making trips to the bathroom. Now you are completely caught up on my Friday. Below I included another picture of a pelican because I took absolutely no photos yesterday and I really like this image of her in flight. Although it looked good in color there is such a richness in texture that I prefer it in black and white.
