After a really restless night for me anyway. Could not get to sleep until almost dawn. We left Los Mochis at 7:30. It was a very overcast and ugly looking day the whole drive. Not sunny but glaring and humid. The road went from bad to horrid to okay and everything in between. And there were six toll booths today to the tune of US$57!
Don't know what this layer of stuff was. Lows cloud, fog? air pollution? There were several fields being burned so that probably added to it.
We got to Mazatlan about 12:30. Got settled in. As usual in the back section of Las Jaibas RV Park. Got set up and I hit the shower - it is so humid here and in the mid to high 80s. After shower a short nap to make up for last night.
Then of course we had to go to Fat Fish for RIBS. I was still a little grumpy and mentioned to Bill that Famous Dave's Rib place in Vegas was just around the corner, we really didn't have to drive 1300 miles to get ribs. He did not think that was funny.
The grill and Willie waiting patiently out front of Fat Fish.
From the look on his face I guess it was worth it. I think price went up since last year, but don't remember for sure. Two complete dinners, salad, baked potato, bread and full slab of ribs 220 Pesos. US$11.00 - not each, for both. That is a regular size dinner plate.
After eating we drove around Mazatlan a little bit. In the Golden Zone. Friday night traffic.
The sunset along the Malecon
Either a diver getting ready to dive or a poser getting the crowds attention. When enough people give tips the real diver goes up and dives. Just barely caught him as we drove by.
By the harbor another picture of the sunset. A few clouds showed up.
A parking lot over in the Central Historical. Will have to come back in the day time to get pictures of the murals. You can see the outdoor oven in the back of the lot. We go to that restaurant a lot for pizza.
Walking around Plazuela Machado. These little girls were part of a Quinceanera celebration.
I think it was a double celebration as there were two girls getting equal attention.
We were glad to find out that Beach Burger is still open and that our favorite waiter Roberto is again working there. Christmas decorations were already going up.
Lots of vendors and people there.
More Christmas decorating.
Check out the shoes on the girl in the middle. They were about five inches high.
One of the older buildings. There is now a restaurant on the balcony.
And the hotel has their Christmas Tree up and glowing.
Then on home. Getting caught up on pictures, email and our trip diary. Then to bed early for me. Bill has already got the TV set up to get the Mazatlan channels. A whole big deal on Trump. Can't get away from it even here.
