Trying to get a good picture of the huge beautiful Mexican flag is difficult!
Meanwhile, Ernie is busy, busy, busy...his gifts and talents are of great service here. He has done lots of mechanic stuff..maintenance and vehicle fixes. And last week, he was wearing his electrician's hat;revitalizing electricity to the caretaker home for Pastor Leo & Gloria's church in Rosarito, Lo Mejor del Trigo.
We also reunited with some sailors from CA that we met in Monterrey, Ronald & Bridgett, who came down to visit their sailboat, Shameless. While they were here, they introduced us to the BEST pizza in Mexico we believe! Ochento's..hidden in the wine country near Ensenada. We met the family owners and hope they take some time off and come down to the marina to go sailing before we leave here in November!
When we were up north, visiting family and friends, we got the chance to reconnect with David & Danielle, missionaries we met years ago in Santa Barbara through Tristan Harvey. We haven't seen David & Danielle in at least 7 years-- David just finished training as a pilot and mechanic! to be a missionary bush pilot--we saw them just before they headed north somewhere for official training for that kind of mission! Wow!! So we got together for coffee with Tristan too!
Tristan & his family have been in Bali, Indonesia for the past year.. to return in the next week or so--who knows when we will see them again!
