The docks at Marina Palmira are quieter as many of the the seasonal cruisers have already gone home.
Yes, there are several impromptu Shindigs, as we all need a break from the hard work. A memorable one was with Tom and Sylvia from Cinnabar and Ken and Patty from Oogachaka was called "Bilge Bulge". The idea was not to buy anything, but be creative from what you might have in your galley or bilge. It was another fun Shindig that went quite late. We also celebrated a joint birthday bash with John and Deb from Scot Free Eh, Curtis from Aurora, John from Swagman at the swanky Azul Marino in Costa Baja. June 30th was my actual birthday. We celebrated with our good friends Patty and Ken from Oogachaka, starting with an incredible seafood lunch with champagne at McFisher. The afternoon highlight was a trip to the Platino theater, which is a very upscale Air Conditioned (of course) theater with assigned leather recliner seating, a cocktail waiter, and chairside lamps. We enjoyed the only English movie playing at that time, World War Z - for Zombie. After a drink at the Dockside cafe, we said our goodbyes, and then decided to sneak in one more meal at Rancho Vieja, known for their arrachara meats. It was a great day.
