December 30th

There's a little store in La Penita that is similiar to a "Dollar Store" that has, besides many other things lots of pet things. We walked over this morning to see if they might have a "chucker" to replace the one Leo dropped in the ocean. Unfortunately they didn't but the trip to town wasn't wasted as we were able to pick up some more juice that we were out of.

When walking home we went past one of the local restaurants we sometimes frequent and had a nice surprise. The man that helped us a week ago in Guayabitos when the Jeep's starter gave out was now a waiter at the restaurant. We stopped and talked with him for a while, thanking him for his previous help and told him we would come back to have a meal at the restaurant sometime soon.

Just after we got back to the rv park the owner of the neighboring park came over to ask if we still had our electricity. When checking we found ours was out as well and we were without power for several hours. Fortunately we have a battery pack in the motorhome plus a generator to start up if the batteries get weak plus our stove operates on propane.
