Carlos and Andrea have now moved out of the cabana and into their new digs. That left us with a scant two week window to get the cabana put into shape for high season. We have been very busy over there and this is what we started with.
It has been about 3 years since last we painted the cabana. I remember because Simon was just a kitten and stepped into the paint tray. Also, it was the day our friend's baby was christened. So it was time we put on a new pretty face for the public.
We have either gotten too old, or too lazy, to do this kind of work ourselves anymore. It is a heck of a lot easier just to hire the professionals.
You can really see how the paint has faded here.
You might also recognize the painter. It is Tico, from Snackbar El Tico. He is a painter by trade, and a damned good one. He had previously painted the interior of our house. We looked mighty hard afterwards to find a drop of paint that had not been cleaned up. I also like that he was trained in Canada and knows the importance of a good, clean edge!
Of course, to make a hectic day even more crazy, I decided to have the mechanic come over and change the oil on the Tracker. Why not almost bite off more than you can chew in one day?
Da-dah! All fresh and lovely and ready to greet her public!
