Overnight in San Carlos

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, we are overnighting in San Carlos, at the Tetakawi Best Western. The top photo shows the pool as it is this morning and the second photo shows the pool as it was, full of dirt, rocks and slush, after tropical storm Julio came through here in late August. We arrived here that night in pouring rain, thunder, lightning and high winds. Last night there were strong winds, but no rain and a very clear, sunny morning now.
In the lobby this morning I met a group of divers on a tour from Phoenix. They have been here for a four day dive in the Sea of Cortez.
As I am telling Bill about meeting them, it prompts a quick discussion about one of our great all time trips...
When I was a flight attendant, one of our most memorable personal travel trips was departing Seattle during a snow storm in January. We got the last two seats available on a Delta flight at $13.00 a piece. After a rather long delay in Miami we arrived on the island of St. Croix, where we stayed at the Hotel on the Cay (where they used to film a portion of the old Starsky and Hutch series) for about $15.00 a night.
Bill and I were very excited about snorkeling, but after being in the water for about 30 seconds, I panicked when I saw all of the fish swimming around me. I gulped and gurgled, could not breathe, and I flailed ridiculously in the clear water. I thought I was going to drown and die then and there. Bill is now reminding me that the water was only about 3 feet deep. I don't remember that. I'm not sure I could touch bottom. He is saying I jumped up and ran screaming out of the water. I don't remember that either. Well. It is a darn good thing I am telling this story and he is not.....

Linda -- I always get a kick out of the tales you and Bill tell. The two of you must be a hoot to travel with. I know a couple very similar to the two of you. When they return from vacation, you would think that each had visited opposite sides of the planet.

How is the border crossing at Mariposa? Why did you decide to cross there?

You are braver than us to consider no AC!

And some bad news...the real estate market in Duvall is down 14% from last year. :(
