Ok I know I that's not the song but close enough. So why was it up so early you might ask! Well someone decided to go fishing. I got up at 5:40 to see him off.
This is Mazatlan at 5:55 (yes that is am)
We got to the Harbour Master at 6 to get the fishing license.
Dave was meeting up with Jim, Sandy and another Canadian we met here. We met Sandy on one of our first days here. He came to Canada as a young man to pursue his soccer career. He played and coached in BC, until his knees gave out and his banking career took off.
Sandy and his wife Donna were joined by their son Jim and his family. They live in Mission BC.
So why am I giving you so much detail? Well Dave grew up in Mission and as it turns out Dave and Jim graduated in the same class! Funny to travel to another country and be reunited with an old friend!
The fourth Canadian on the boat is from St. Albert! Imagine that.
The fishermen four:
I saw the group off and contrary to what you might expect, I did not go back to sleep! I had a cup of coffee and got ready for tennis.
