Home sweet home, showing the cold blooded neighbours. More pictures to follow in future postings.

"Free" city tour, if you do not count sitting through a 90 + minute timeshare sales pitch to get the tickets. The tour included shopping at high end stores. One tourist took a high dive off the rocks after seeing the Visa bill. (I priced out a 5 piece tableware setting at $1,800 US for each setting. To be fair, the price did include shipping and insurance to anywhere in North America.)

Shopping we can afford. Shrimp at the market and jewelry from beach vendors.

Sandra and her sister Cathy staying connected to back home. We think Skype is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

A walk on the beach ends with a much appreciated cerveza at the "Witches Broom" restaurant on the beach, overlooking the surfers. We witness the end of one life and the beginning of another on the sand.

Day sail along the Marina District and the Golden Mile, with Brother in Law Barry at the helm. We spent a week with Barry and Cathy at the Mayan Sea Garden resort. Being off the boat for a short time was a welcome change. The resort is pictured above. We were in the second building from the left on the second from the top floor. Fishing is the #1 industry in Mazatlan, followed by tourism. Para gliders dot the horizon on the Golden Mile.

Evening out with fellow boaters Jim & Don off SV "Dream Weaver" and Marnie & Pete off SV "2 Peices of 8". Our first ride in a "Red Truck" Taxi.
