Family Outing - Cola de Caballo

Friends came last night to spend the evening and swim in the pool. We sat around and enjoyed the quiet. No neighbors this year, at least the noisy ones didn't come. Amen.

We sat outside most of the night enjoying the stars and sky having a few drinks and listening to the girls practice their English.

This morning we got up at 6:30, had coffee and off we went to Cola de Caballo with a trip to El Manzano, a place half way up the mountains between Santiago and Laguna de Sanchez.

The girls had never seen the waterfalls and were exciting about the trip. Before we left though, we got the bad news that a good friend's mother had passed away after a long illness. We decided to go to the waterfalls and then head into Monterrey for the velorio and leave our friends to fend for themselves. It wasn't hard they were very content to be here in the quinta. The weather has been great, up to 95 every day and cool evenings and even cooler mornings.

The traffic into Monterrey wasn't bad as we were going the opposite direction. Same thing coming back home. We did hit a snag when we got to Los Cavazos, todo el mundo, was in the lineup to take the turn around near our house. It took longer to take the turn around to our house than the trip from Monterrey.
