The Portal

buenas tardes!
Thought you might like to see this. The parapet wall is finished and all the canalis are in and I just may have misspelled both of those words, but who cares, as Jay-Jay the San Carlos fish taco vendor says.........and Senor is not here or I would run out and verify............anyways it's a nice long shot of the nice long portal that looks nice from this side.
By the way, I have a feeling that sand pile, the shovel and the screen to the left are permanent yard art at our house.
And in case you have forgotten what it looks like underneath, well, here it is. Yeah, that is still a dirt floor and my patience has run thin with it, so I am very pleased to say that Senor and Humberto are fixing to start the concrete sub floor. It will look good with the sub floor and I will not be as cranky about all this dust. But oh wow, is it a beautiful portal. In this photo you are not seeing about twelve feet of it that is behind me.

Okay, this is all I wanted to show you. I need a nap. I have been looking at house magazines most of the morning and that is just exhausting. And then I went down to the Plaza for awhile and believe me, that was really exhausting. There are so many people in town, no place to park, no bench to sit on, a line out the Museum door, baby strollers everywhere, kids pulling little plastic dogs on leashes. And I am not complaining! It is wonderful to see so many people in Alamos and I don't know any of them. It's just..........they are everywhere. The people who live here are either hiding out or have escaped to the beach.

I also need to rest up for manana because we are leaving early tomorrow for the beach, for our escape. We know from experience the beach will be packed for Easter Sunday, so I don't know if that is actually called an escape.
 And then, on Monday, everything will back to normal, whatever that is.............
adios! Linda Lou
Feliz Semana Santa.
