What Happened to the Last Week

This has been another week of restaurant food and computer time.  Frank and Shirley’s kitchen was completely gutted late last week in preparation for a complete redo.  Lacking a kitchen, they are going out to dinner many evenings and several times they invited us to go along.  Last Friday and Sunday it was to Romanaccio’s for Italian food. Sunday was their special Osso Buco, and, as usual, the servings were huge, and the leftovers were enough for three plates for the panga (water taxi) drivers at the yacht club !!  On Monday we enjoyed the usual book exchange at the BYC Bar;  afterwards Frank and Shirley invited us to join them for dinner at the far end of the causeway at Leñas y Carbon for wonderful steaks.  The servings of meat were huge, so Bill and I shared a pepper steak.  It was delicious and everyone else enjoyed their choices as well.


Tuesday evening we did the cooking on Lanikai and Frank and Shirley joined us for an early pasta dinner.  With all the work going on at their condo they needed to get to bed early so they could be up early when the workers arrived.

Wednesday was Dim Sum breakfast at our favorite Chinese restaurant and this week we decided to make the walk all the way back to Cinco de Mayo Plaza (about 5 miles, through a major shopping part of Panama City).  Rick (from s/v Inshallah) joined us and we stopped into several shops along the way ending up at the Machetazo, a Fred Meyer-type store, our favorite for groceries.  At Cinco de Mayo we picked up the bus back to Balboa YC.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday we awoke to more rain, but by later in the morning it was clear enough for a walk.  Bill and I walked our hour, sometimes with light sprinkles hitting us, but it is seldom too hot with the sun hidden in the clouds.  Computers and reading occupied much of the rest of those days.
