Last Saturday we took a quick trip to La Noria to buy tortillas! That was the main reason, other reason, to get out of the RV! and it was a nice day.
La Noria was founded in 1565 when mining began in the area. Some of the mines are still active. The town is quite small only 725 people live there - 2020 count.
On the way there we stopped at La Martina for breakfast. Forgot to take any pictures there. Oh well. So on up the road. The arch of La Noria. See the yellow stripes in front of the arch. They are speed bumps. On the other side of the arch there are yellow stripes too, but they are just painted stripes, no bumps. But you still slow down.In the past year several little stores have opened. If you have a front room you are not using, make it into a store. I don't remember seeing this one before.
Shoes and hats for the tourists, cleaning supplies for the locals.
New signage in the plaza.
Christmas decoration still up in the plaza. I think this building has been repainted since last year.
Just one of the pretty homes there. Most are colorfully painted.
One if the historical buildings in town.
Have chain saw will travel.
This building is actually partly a warehouse for grains etc.
A little one room grocery store. It is the front room of a home. She sells everything from beans to dish soap. Drinks and candy. Also historical, but can't read the sign.
He is braiding leather strips into a rope? Halter? Don't know.
This is the registrar building. Marriage certificates here, babies births recorded here...
Just like this building.
Notice how high the sidewalks are. Keeps out flooding during storms.
This is the blacksmith. He came out to talk to Bill when he saw the car. Know him for years.
Already have the entrance arches built.
For the last few days we haven't done anything but go to the pharmacy and buy some KN95 masks. They are easier to breath through and supposed to be better than the cloth ones we have. Weather has been cloudy, windy and cool.
