Meeting our neighbors

It´s a small world

sunny 86 °F


When you travel away from home you should always expect to run into someone you know, lives close to you, or might be related to your third cousin. Our Drake Bay cabin has three rooms in it. We (John, Jean, Bob, Kyrss) have rooms 20 and 22. For our first night 21 was empty. Yesterday, folks from Paonia, CO, owners of the Blackbridge Winery, moved in. Paonia is 80 miles from Fruita. Last night at dinner we met some more Coloradoans, a couple from Boulder and the wife graduated from good old BHS class of '71. Today we met a Montana couple who knows my sister and her son Ryan. I wonder who we will meet next?

The Drake Bay Resort serves meals family style, so when you sit down to eat you really get to know most of the people staying at the resort. Besides us gringos, there are Swedes and French, and a few other Americans from Georgia and Florida.

Today's trip to Cano Island and National Park was very enjoyable. It was about an hour ride in a flat bottomed 20 foot boat with everyone on the lookout for dolphins and whales. A school of spotted dolphins entertained us for about 10 minutes but the whales never appeared. Snorkelling around Cano was easy and the fish were plentiful, including two small sand sharks, an octopus, and blue star fish. On the island we had lunch with a third cousin of T Rex. He must have been quite the lizard...he was followed around by seven females of his species.

All is good....
