Carol's Neighbour, Mary, Gets Recognized For Her Benevolent Work In The Community


La Ventana and El Sargento (pronounced 'la ben-tah-nah' and 'el sar-henh-toe') are the kitesurfing and sailboarding mecca of the west coast. These former fishing villages on the long Bahia de la Ventana, have been reinvented as a rough and rudimentary infrastructure for the wind-sport crowd.

We were fortunate to have our friends Brian and Carol there when we visited. They welcomed us to their property for a relaxing week of beach and windsport watching and even some snorkelling. Their neighbour friend Mike was patient and kind with Emma.

Besides just hanging out, our week's highlights were: visiting the free campground flea market, visiting the public school on their last day of classes before the holidays and doing a jury-rig on the business end of Harvey's busted toilet... ...mmmm, mmm, fun!

Oh, I forgot to mention the daily dog walks at,

"four-thirty, five. Bring a cocktail, dog's are optional."

Actually, we learned just before arriving that Carol and Brian had to put down their much loved "Chula", a german shepherd, very old lady and family member for years. She seemed to have chosen Baja, a place she had visited and enjoyed so many times, as the end of her earthly run.
