Weekend fun

Friday night, I hooked up with some new friends and we went to a great local pub on the beach - Bora's. I have been going there for years and my brother discovered it on one of our many vacations down here. It is a simple little pub that has great live music on the weekends. And the best part is, it is a short walk from my house.

So, we walked down to Bora's and Jade, the street dog that has recently adopted me, stuck right by my side and walked there with us. When we arrived at the bar, she followed me in there as she was not about to leave my side. One of the bouncers came over and asked if that was my dog as she was not allowed in the bar and would have to wait outside. Jade waited outside for a while and we could hear her crying over the loud music. Eventually, she gave up waiting and went back to my house where I found her waiting for me on the porch when I got home.

Bora's was a packed house and there was a popular band there called the Brian James Band. They were absolutely fantastic and played a little bit of everything in both English and Spanish. Every song had the entire bar singing along. It was a fun night - here are some photos.

Saturday night, I went to Steve and Teresa's housewarming party. They are some new friends here from BC that moved here to Mexico earlier this year. Thanks for a great party, awesome food and wonderful hospitality. Remember, you told me I could post these photos! Here are the fab hosts - how many blue drinks does it take to make one's toungue turn this color?????

There were also some friends that played some songs for us - it was a father/son team. And the little boy that contributed to the music is my Spanish teacher's son. Isn't he adorable? He fell in love with Jade and followed her everywhere. He even retrieved one of her toys out of the pool.

Nancy -yes, I am fortunate enough to have met some great new friends who invite me out to many different gatherings. This has really helped my transition and it is much better than sitting at home and feeling blue.

Your friend's tongue reminds of that drink Laniecat used to she from Australia too?

New Beginnings said...

No, she is from Nanaimo, BC. But that is the main reason I posted the picture because it reminds me so much of Lanie and I have almost an identical picture of her with the blue tongue!
