Exciting life continues in Lo de Marcos at the La Parota RV Park. We all trooped down to the village to watch the Santa Claus parade, see the kids get their presents and of course join in the carol singing. The parade and gift giving is mostly all organized by various gringo charitable organizations.
A wedding was held at our park, put on by Tomatina’s restaurant. The actual ceremony was held on the beach, and apart from the tide coming in, the fishermen ‘landing’ their boats nearby (they come close to the beach, rev their motors, literally driving their boats up the beach at a great rate of knots) everything went well.
Xmas eve saw us celebrating at Tomatina’s (24th is a big deal in Mexico). They put on a fabulous spread, buffet style and included a bottle of wine. Easier to stagger home 100 meters than walking home from down in the town. The nice thing was that we were all included in the celebrations with the family who own the park.
Xmas day we BBQ’d a turkey roll and enjoyed the meal outdoors with some friends. In the evening we had a pot luck desert get together with more entertainment from talented folks staying here in the park.
With bated breath we await the New Year’s celebrations.
