Sunday was a quiet day. The tourists were still in town for the baseball series so we basically just stayed home. Except for going to WalMart early for groceries. We thought about going to the Plazuela Machado in the evening but it got too cold about 5:30 and the darn wind picked up. So scraped that idea.
Monday morning was a sunny day so about 11 we decided to take a ride. We drove up to Cerritos watch the fishermen
The city is building another bike path. Right down the center divider along Sabalo-Cerritos. On our way to Cerritos we discovered they have already started the work.
Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- With the construction of the Sábalo-Cerritos bikeway, which will have an extension of 4.4 kilometers and an investment of 23.5 million pesos, Mazatlán is positioned above other beach destinations in the country, by connecting 18.3 kilometers of the coastal bikeway.en at Cerritos. When giving the starting signal for the work, Governor Quirino Ordaz Coppel assured that this type of work gives Mazatlán a greater projection as a tourist destination and directs it towards the future, with an urban infrastructure that prioritizes mobility for pedestrians and cyclists.
This bikeway will run from the Marina Náutica to Playa Cerritos, with a length of 4.4 kilometers, it will connect to the Camarón-Sábalo bikeway, and this in turn to Avenida Del Mar, Rafael Buelna, and Paseo Claussen, forming a circuit of 18.3 kilometers of the bike path near the sea. The work is projected to be completed in four months, includes an investment of 23 million 573 thousand pesos, of which 18.5 million will be provided by the state government and the rest, the municipality of Mazatlán.
Most of the boats were in. The one on the right is usually one of the last ones to come in.
The pickup is pretty much loaded. The umbrellas belong to a couple of vendors. One sells peeled and cut mangos on a stick. Pretty good.
A vendor loaded with all his wares. Very calm sea that day. Wonder what he was thinking? No one around to sell too.
One of the restaurants sells the odd items that the fishermen bring back.
Still selecting which fish he wants.
He has his scale right there with him. These are some big fish. Red Snappers?
Like I mentioned we were there about noon. Only a couple other tourists there. Several of the shops were closed.
Every one is selling these painted hats now. They aren't very comfortable.
Guess he decided to go somewhere else looking for customers.

These men have a hard life. The guy in the white shirt is amazing, he is in his mid 50's and is always on the move. Helping bringing boats in, helping carrying the coolers to the trucks - never seems to slow down.
Looks like it will all have gravel on it. Wouldn't that be hard to ride in? Maybe it will be base for paving it. No idea.
And home we went until later in the day. Around 5 p.m. we headed out for the Plazuela Machado. There were a lot more people out and about then I'd expected.But it looks like the vendors expected the business.

Back to Olas Altas area.
Young Love! - Nope a photo shoot, he was fixing her makeup. When we first turned down this street we could see her dress sparkling from over a block away. She was crossing the street and we couldn't figure out what we were seeing. All we could see was the sparkling thing moving.
In the parking lot. I looked up and saw these clothes drying on a louvered window.
On to the Plazuela Machado. A magical sight.
Oh well. Get the cushions back Friday and he will take the frame with him to do. Also getting new harder foam in the bottom cushions.
