And yesterday it was snowing in Las Vegas. How did we find out? The painter, Jamie, who was here putting the clear coat on the RV told us. He has friends in Vegas and they sent him pictures. And then later in the day we were in the Mall and the girl we know in one of the booths told us her sister lived in Vegas and it was snowing there. Small world.
While we've been hanging out in the campground I've taken a few pictures here. This plant is really growing, but the new leaves are a different color.
A couple of iguanas who hang out in the corner of the campground below an old boat being stored there.
They were shy and quick. Hard to catch the in a clear photo.
Some flowers on a strange bush next to the RV. Not part of our garden.
While the RV was getting the finish work done we headed towards the Centro Historico because the mural painter was going to be in demonstration paint off.
The Malecon is still being worked on. Going south towards old town. Landscaping the center divider. Driving here is always an adventure. Never know when a lane will be blocked - with no warning signs up. First indication is usually traffic in front of you slamming on their brakes.
Work on the sidewalk, sea wall and bike path continues.
Squeezed into a spot in the parking lot.
One of the many graffiti murals in the parking lot.
Just noticed the obnoxious yellow building next to the parking lot doesn't have a roof. Can see the sky looking through the upstairs window.
We walked from the parking lot to the bakery where we had breakfast.
Passed the Plazuela Machado on the way. They are painting the buildings there. From the lovely bright salmon [see upper right corner] to a dull ugly beige/gray. The town must have a whole boat load of ugly paint to get rid of.
This building was built in the 1904 and held a German Notions Store. Sold among other things watches, jewelry, furniture, musical instruments, hardware and farming and mining tools.
This is how it looked then. During WWII the owner was forced to sell the store and leave Mexico.Another pretty and older building across the street, no information about it.
A mural on the side of a building. Very intricate work.
Took these photos as we walked back towards where the art competition was being held. Again no info but nice old building. It appeared to be empty. So many are not used but the exterior is kept up.
Nice work on the upper floor above the windows.
Looks newly painted.
Notice the salmon color between the green around the windows.
Don't think remember ever seeing this building or the sign.
Another painted empty building. Most of the lamp posts now have flower pots on them. So far the flowers are thriving.
This one needs some TLC. It would be so fun to get a place like this and fix it modern inside and live in it.
Looking in through one of its windows.
Walking back to the art competition we passed the Museo Arqueologico - Archaeology Museum. It was getting painted. Yesterday it was white! Why am I not surprised.
A piece of history.
The Museo de Arte where we were going is right across the street but will leave that until tomorrow because we sure aren't going to go do anything today. Really cold and windy out.
However the RV is finished as you can see by the header.
Removing the protecting paper.
