And at the same time my new (used) cell phone went kaput. So I was out of phone until Keith could come deliver me a new cell phone. Have to have a quad band, unlocked phone to work in Mexico and the states.
Keith is now here visiting and we're doing all sorts of boat chores but doing fun stuff too. We find that in the middle of the day we can split a big Ballena of Pacifico and it tastes so nice.....
Then we took the boat out into 25 knots of wind and huge rollers that almost swept the dinghy off the davits. What a wild ride! That didn't last too long as we had the good sense to retreat back into the safety of the harbor.
On Friday Keith and I drove off and found a place to galvanize the anchor. The road was not marked but we found it using a Google map that Luis at the marina store printed out for us. We met with Roberto at the Galvanizor who told us "no problem, it will be ready in a week, no.. maybe two weeks, depends." When I asked if he wanted to give us a receipt or put my name on the anchor somehow he said it was not necessary and I can just check back in a week or two and pick it up. Simple.

Those big bad shrimp are wild caught locally and are selling for 200 pesos a kilogram. That's about 80 pesos a pound or 7 dollars. The normal sized ones go for 150 pesos per kilogram or about 5 bucks. We usually get about a third of a kg and eat shrimp till we pass out.
