A Fence for Archie
WHERE ARE WE? La Penita, Mexico
Sort of a plain kinda day today. A Swim in the pool, a walk on the beach with Archie, lunch, supper and all those normal things. The ocean is a little rattled today and kicking up a bit of froth. Our friends from the other park posted on FB that they saw a whale and her baby shortly after she gave birth. What an awesome event. Mama whale was spotted a few times apparently, but we didn't see her.
Our project today was to buy and build a fence for Archie. Although our RV park is dog friendly, Archie is a bit over the top for some people, so we have decided to keep him confined. We have a nice large area around our Motorhome with a front and back yard, so by putting up a fence, he will have lots of room to run. We got 65 ft of concrete reinforcing wire and 10 - 4ft pieces of 1/2 rebar for 2000 pesos at the building supply store. That will be enough to make the entire fence. About $120 Cnd.
Harold and John gave me a hand and we got it all strung out today and will do the final touches tomorrow. We will need a couple gates and a bit more wire to finish it. By the time we got it all strung out, it was getting dark.
Archie had some fun with a cardboard box while enjoying the enclosure. We enjoyed a good feed of Kenia's Alitas de pollo (chicken wings). I had pineapple with a zing, and Sue had Parmesan. We look forward to using some of her flavours back at CJ's this summer.
Nothing else to report for today so hope you had a great day. Manana!!
