Well what a week! the kayak is great! i have paddled to mexico n and back 3 times, a nice 6 mile paddle or more as i like to zig zag up and down the lagoon with two fishing rods in tow. The first trip i took i was looking for the crocodiles and was in “Stealth Mode ” i was gliding past some mangroves thinking this is a great place for a Croc to hang out when i saw a few bubbles.. a giveaway sign..the next thing the water erupted at the side of me ..Scaring the shit outta me ..it must be a croc after a ” LEAN” meal nope it was this little git with a spear gun hunting fish inside the roots of the mangrove. Then the cheeky git asked for a lift to the other side of the lagoon so he didn’t have to swim. Well my fishing trips have amounted to “Jack Shit” but it’s all about the local knowledge i have been put on to some red heart worms that should do the trick ..but we have just missed the main fishing season and expect more luck from next april onwards.I went fishing with a guy called Nod who lives on the bay as we were fishing i recounted a story of catching a pelican in Florida and what a pain in the arse it was to catch and release it before it ripped it’s pouch and couldn’t hold onto fish ..as Iwas telling this story, a young artic tern swooped down trying to get at the shiny lures, he was flying all around Nod and was getting within a few inches..he says he “tried” to push it away but for some reason he had a clenched fist and punched it …luckily Nod was no Bluto or Popeye bustling with muscles and the bird flew off. i did think of reporting him but his wife makes the yummiest cookies. So i’ve been changing my appearance recently in the hope that when we decide to buy some land i don’t look like a fresh faced Gringo ready to be fleeced..rest assured as soon as i strike a deal it’s coming off and i’m gettjng H to cut my hair.
There are 6 gecko’s in the new house and the new dog sleeps outside under the palapa , he has a habit of walking in the red sand then walking on the tiled floor around the house i have had to mop it all down today ..yep just as i’d finished he decided to check my work and paddle more red foot prints all around ( we will have a heart to heart soon so he knows who’s BOSS) this photo is of Bertlam’s house with the 1 year old rascal in the foreground. He had Einstein as a name but when you shouted it nothing happened he just blanked us ..We have changed his name to ZEUS and down he comes straight away. A great addition to the family! 🙂
