It has now been raining for three days, not heavily but lightly and steadily. Jack said 2 1/2 inches. We can always "use" rain but it puts a "damper" on social activities such as walking anywhere. But the zillion shades of green are truly dazzling. Despite the rain we drove up to Colima yesterday to visit the BIG supermarket to get things like heavy cream, good butter and good olive oil. In and out in less than an hour, although the round trip takes about 3 hours door to door. And yes, it did rain on the way. So we are not the only ones who are getting soaked. We went down to Fernando's for comida and sat well back from the edge of the overhang. Amazingly, there were quite a few people on the beach and in the water.
We went to the tianguis this morning, mainly to buy the ingredients for Chuy's chiles rellenos for dinner on Wednesday night. Also picked up some beautiful strawberries for ice cream!
Looking at last year's blog posts, it rained at this same time. I guess this has become an annual thing.
