Community Workers

I see and say hola to a lot of children and adults on my walk each morning. These two guys are the ones that keep the streets clean in San Clemente. They deserve our appreciation and gratitude for a job well done. Especially if you walk on the streets of Centro the morning after Fiesta or Carnaval and then see them after these guys work their magic!

Finishing The Walls

When we bought this house we never thought to look at the one side of the house that faces an empty lot. When we finally looked, part of one wall of the house and the entire security wall on that side were unfinished.

It was completed in one day with two maestros and one assistant. The following week David completed the finish work and paint. Ta Da!

Building a Boat Next Door

Several months ago, Oscar – who owns the house across the street from ours – started working behind his house. I finally took a look out our window to see a boat taking shape.

San Clemente 6.21.2014 016I will never get used to how things are done here. It’s a great spot, out of the sun, lots of fresh air and close to his home. Couldn’t get any better.
