This week in the marina

A haircut for me by Susie. Susie is a licensed esteticista (beautician). She and her husband Ron live on a sailboat that is lucky enough to be moored in the shrimp boat yard. Ron has a friend and occasional sailing partner who used to work as a shrimper and still has connections.
A group of school children came to the marina on a field trip to release balloons with  messages attached. 
Dick's yard sale with customers.  One man's junk is another man's treasure.
We heard Rafael, one of the guards (checked shirt) call out to a friend, "Yunke!"  I think this is a Mexicanization of our word "junk."  I've seen the word yunke to denote a car salvage yard.  In drove his friend and gone was our old dinghy outboard engine.  Dick will now be rowing our dinghy.
L-R: Diane, Fran, Doug.  It was Fran's birthday and her husband arranged a little party in the cruisers' lounge.  Outside, there was a huge Mexican wedding taking place.
The children from the wedding kept coming up to the windows or door to see Santa Claus.  Mike from Tazmo has his own costume and goes to local schools each year. 
This girl had the biggest smile you can imagine and came back several times for a hug.

  1. Oh, I laughed out loud that Dick had a yard sale. That is just so perfect---and he had customers! I also love this idea of the haircut coming to you! Great post--love seeing the day to day there!
