Sunday we didn't do much of any thing. Just went to WalMart in the morning and read, napped and watched some TV the rest of the day. And I worked on some stuff for the blogs.
Early Saturday morning we got a call from the camera repair man - my cameras were ready. So we jumped in the Jeep and drove across town to pick them up. Glad it was early as there is a big baseball series playoff thing going on in town and there are nationals here from all over the country and Latin America. At least when we left there was very little traffic. The days continue to be quite cool and humid. Lots of mist and haze in the air.A whole lot of vendors were setting up along the Malecon in hopes of having a good day.
Father and son carrying white plastic chairs, the father had the seats and the son was carrying the legs.
Never noticed the wings painted on this building before. Managed to just get a picture of them.
The home of the camera repairman. He said he cleaned the lens on both cameras really well. And the problem with my newest camera with it shutting off when I use the zoom. He couldn't really fix. Said he did work on it and hopefully it will stop doing the shut off. But there is a part screwed up and to order the part and have it sent here will cost more then buying a new camera. So will see what happens with it.
Another new street for us to drive down. Looks like a restaurant.
Took this just for the colorful buildings.
More wings. Good omen I hope. Third set in four days.
I really like these kind of gray green palm trees. They look so pretty.
Another pretty tree. One of the reasons we are in Mazatlan. The trees and flowers growing here are amazing. Besides the weather is better then at home. And always something pretty to see.
A Thrifty Ice Cream store in Olas Altas. I remember when we would always get a cone when we went into a Thrifty drug store when the kids were little. Are there any Thrifty Drug stores in the US any more and does Thrifty have ice cream stores there:
Much to our surprise there was a parking space on the Malecon right near the ocean fed swimming pool. So Bill made a U and we parked. There is very seldom any parking in Olas Altas, this section of old Mazatlan. A vendor walking by. He sure was loaded down. Two back packs, one in front, another in back. A load of hats on his head and holding some too. Also a big board holding sunglasses on a harness over his shoulder. And a slew of caps on the other shoulder.
Looking down on Carpe Olivera - the name of the ocean fed pool. Unfortunately the tide was out and the waves weren't splashing into the pool.
The inner tube laying on the sidewalk belongs to an oyster fisherman. It has a net in the middle of it to put the oysters and he has an instrument to free the oysters.
Just the shadow of the lamp post.
Looking at the line of lamp posts along the Malecon in Olas Altas.
The carrying case for the drone he has been using lately.
Taking off.Up up and away. The wind was blow quite a bit and got worse as the drone got higher. According to the app it was blowing and gusting around 40mph. He only took it up to around 270 feet. I could see it being buffeted by the wind.
Nice tiles roof.
