Our time here is winding down so we are kind of like "What can we do today that we haven't already done two or three times this year?" So I thought I'd figured something out. In the Golden Zone on the third Thursday of the month there is an Art Walk. At least there was previous years. And the was one last month. So lets go have lunch at Lucky B's and look around. It was a nice day, not to hot, no wind. So we parked and started to walk around. First into an area where in the past there have been lots and lots of little shops. As we walked towards the back to visit with the jewelers Bill has visited with every year we found that all these shops were empty, including the jewelers place.But his equipment was all out side of shops. And there he was in a little tiny, barely room for him and his work bench. Bill went in to visit with him for a while. His polisher outside.
And the rest of his equipment outside of another jewelers store. Covid has been hard on the little shops that depend on tourists.
We headed across the street towards where we were going to eat. The colorful front of the shopping plaza leading to the beach.
Walked inside to look around. Most of the shops in here are open. One of the little water features along the walkway. Pretty tile benches around it.
It was Thursday not many people on the beach. Except the guy playing his violin.
Lots of water toys for rent.
The beach side of Panchos restaurant. More color
A couple of the pretty tile murals along Panchos walls.
Looking towards the front of the arcade.
Again out front. Lots of color around.
A little walk way to the beach.
We did eat lunch at the restaurant. But there was so much noise there it was not a pleasant experience. We usually don't go there right at lunch time. Our fault.
He is completely cover in tiny beads that are pressed into bees wax. Imagine the hours it took to do that.
Another beaded work of art.
This particular area is where the tour guides bring all the tourists from the cruise ships. So a lot of the shops cater to them. A lot of the items here are actually priced in US dollars instead of Pesos.
A lot of pan handlers in this area too. Usually with little kids.
I like this necklace. Might try to make one like it when we get home. Now I wish I'd got a better picture of it without all the reflections.
One of the interesting buildings in the area. Another expensive shop.
Lots and lots of stuff, high end stuff, for sale. Had to sneak the pictures as they don't like cameras in there. And the clerks follow you around about three feet behind you.
The ceiling of the place.
Driving home we came across the Indian with his little boy working the cars at the stop lights., Still couldn't get a good picture of the little boy.
So that was another day crossed off.
