As soon as I set out for my first errand run to town yesterday morning and saw the guys unloading a boat full thatch for Ramon’s Village, I decided that was a good topic to blog for today. One of my regular readers Jeanette is planning a trip back in December and had recently asked me how their progress was doing. I filled her in but decided this was a good idea to catch her up visually on the progress they are making.
In addition to Ramon’s I decided to snap a few more pics along the way of businesses that are preparing for high season. Banana Beach was getting a fresh coat of paint just in time for our 2 day intensive first aid training course 🙂 Antijitos San Telmo is getting a nice new look and there is a so work being done beside Super Buy South, I am not sure what the building will be used for when it is finished.
The sun was not at a good angle when I drove past Ramon’s the first time so I deleted most of my pictures and knew I could catch better lighting on my second pass. I had a 12:00pm fishing meeting with Rudy and Steven at Blue Water Grill. This is where my Blat comes in. I was really hoping to get an Ahi Poke Tuna Salad but our waitress said that the chefs are different at night and the daytime ones cannot prepare raw fish. I decided on a Blat – bacon lettuce tuna and avocado with pasta salad on the side. Our meeting went well and I am learning so much about, boats, fishing and related conservation practices, both Rudy and Steven are very knowledgeable in this area. Now if I could only get out on the water and fish more 🙂
Back to the original focus of this post. Ramon’s Village team is working very hard to have the resort be ready for their Beauty From Ashes Celebration in 45 days. I have no doubt they will be able to finish the job and it is amazing how fast they are at resorting Ramon’s Village to it’s former glory.
