We've been having fun here in San Carlos with Ches and Allison. Yesterday we went on a little open house tour of some of the houses for sale around the area. Prices were in the 200 to 350 thousand US dollar range, actually quite a bit cheaper than comparable houses in Victoria. Here's one we saw that had a sweet little patio with cooking facilities leading down to a garden right on the water. The price was $325.We all agreed we could live here quite easily but none of us are really thinking of moving to Mexico permanently.
This one was quite a bargain: brand new, completely furnished and landscaped, in a gated community. The price? $200,000--a steal actually. Prices here have dropped quite a bit in the last year or so and there are definitely some deals to be had. But we were just looking for fun.
Today we're planning to go up the coast a bit to a long lovely stretch of sand curving around a bay, where the movie, Catch 22, was filmed back in the 1960s. I can't show you a photo of the beach right now. Perhaps tomorrow. But I want you to see this little video of a pack of dogs having a great time at a beach, sent by my friend Linette. I can't let my dogs see it though or they'd be completely jealous. But check it out: dogs at the beach
Isn't that the funniest thing?
