Octopus Hunting & Night Out
Yesterday was a perfectly wonderful day.
Husband’s Aunt, Aunt’s Friend, Oldest Son, Youngest Son and I spent the entire afternoon at the pool and beach in front of our villa. Reading, relaxing and playing.
When the tide goes out there are lots of rocks and tide pools. Not great for swimming but full of all kinds of sea creatures. We spotted a Mexican Man with 4 Mexican Boys picking through the rocks. Youngest Son traversed the rocks to find out what they were doing. They were hunting for octopus. Youngest Son and Oldest Son hung out with the Mexican Man and 4 Mexican Boys for over an hour and 7 octopuses were collected – dinner for the Mexican Man and 4 Mexican Boys. This is exactly the kind of unplanned experience that I appreciate so much about living in Mexico.
Husband, Husband’s Aunt, Aunt’s Friend and I went to our favorite sea side restaurant for pasta, fish and lots of wine. We watched the sun set, talked about interesting topics and did I mentioned we had lots of wine?
