Tonight was a first for me at one of the well known San Pedro Social Clubs – Wine de Vine on a Friday night. Ann had suggested it would be a good spot to meet up with Susan Carter managing editor of Caribbean Property and Lifestyles Magazine – this is a great site to check out for anyone who has the dream of living in the Tropics. Carib Pro offers information on Caribbean Opportunities – becoming an expat – Caribbean Living – Medical Tourism in the Caribbean, Caribbean Vacation Rentals, and so much more. Susan has a very interesting history but I am not going to give away to much now as she is going to be featured in an upcoming Spotlight on tacogirl. She Lives in Dominica and came for a short visit from Chetumal Mexico area where she is currently estate sitting.
Had a good afternoon in town starting with the walk there. As I turned the corner of our street Rick our neighbor was passing by and and offered me a lift as far as Marina’s I thanked him for the ride and took a few steps towards town then Dan who owns Lagniappe Provisioning pulled up beside me and said hop on as far as Crazy Canucks beach bar – that was good enough for me. Did a few errands – chatted with Maya outside the post office and Steve at Pirate Pizza. As I was walking back home our afternoon meeting that was canceled got rescheduled last min at Playa Lounge so we got to people watch and take care of business at the same time – Love living in San Pedro.
