Life in our little town

Can I just say, we LOVE our life! Especially now that we have found our groove with our art and our dreams are becoming reality. Another reason we love our life, is we love our town, here are a few pictures of life around town, enjoy.

Two of our regular street sweepers. Such nice guys, always a smile and a wave, keeping SJ beautiful, and enjoying doing it.

Fishermen posted this on Facebook the other day. A very large sea turtle, we saw one the day we went whale watching too, but I'd forgot to mention. And more pics, showing them at sea.

Our fishermen never complain, we ask how the catch was, and they will always say it "was enough". What a great attitude.

We have a full time barber in town! Our good friend Joffre photo bombing in the mirror.

The old monument is getting revamped. Some men broke off the concrete around the base, there had been benches attached, and now they are painting. Looks like maybe the old one will stay too. (Barber shop sign in the background)

Captain Pasqual's oldest son and his wife repairing nets, at what used to be their house. 

And of course we love our neighborhood boys, here is one of my favorites, David. He has just asked us for a plastic bag, and is wading in the lake out front of our house. He really tries to be good, but his little brother Bamderley is a demon...

And others, part of Nexar the fishermen's family, Maykel and Aldo (don't recognize the middle boy). Maykel has started asking for 25 cents, I finally asked him what it was for, and he said Christmas money. They come to the house and ask for a drink of water, or a snack, and we are happy to be good neighbors.

Another reason we love our life is our opportunity to walk on the beach. Fresh air, wind in our hair, warm water on our feet, but watch out!

Yikes! And people ask why we don't swim in the ocean!!

Fruit truck, tacos by delivery for dinner, (tacos are not Ecuadorean, so it's exciting) overcast morning, perfect for walking, life is great! Thanks for joining us, and stay tuned, the adventure continues!
