Joseph teaches some of the hoglets how to blow the Conch shell horn.

Notice that he had to go across the road to blow the Conch shell, Joseph was really good….and loud…blowing the shell horn.

Practicing Conch shell blowing is hard work….so they needed to take a rest.

This dog lived up the street from Casa Porlamar. He would come and hang out with the hoglets almost every day. Sometimes he would go to the beach with us and if he saw us walking around Colonia la Gloria in the evening he would accompany us. He was really sweet.

Later that night we had dinner at Mininos. We got to see Lilu, the owner’s daughter; she waited on us the first time we ate there two years ago. She taught us to order our meals in español then. We have kept in touch with her the last two years. She is growing up to be a wonderful young lady. She originally wanted to be a dancer but had hurt her ankle so no more dancing. She is now in cosmetology school and will graduate in October and plans to open her own beauty shop.

WE LOVE COOL ICE CREAM!!!


Later that night we ran into Clan Rooney and Blake. It was Clan Rooney’s last night on Isla. They are really great people and it was a pleasure to have met them.

We spent much of the day at Colonia Guadalupana Beach.


Later that night we had dinner at the little Mom and Pop store that is about half a block south of Casa Porlamar. One of the sons and his wife has a grill that they make Bimbo Dogs, hamburgers, and tacos with all the fixin’s. We had a great time, the food was great, and we had a wonderful visit with all three generations of the family that were there.

This dog’s name is Alaska, she is a husky. She lives nearby and would visit the hoglets often. She has had all her hair shaved off except for her face and the tip of her tail.

The next morning was spent getting ready for the hogfamily fiesta.

Sr. Plu took us through the drive through liquor store so we could get some beer for the fiesta.

How cool is that? You drive in, tell the staff what you need, pay for it, they put it in your car, and away you go.

Later that day we went swimming at the Avalon Bridge beach.

We liked the Bimbo Dogs so much that we had last night that we HAD to have some for lunch!
