Back in Agua Verde

Sunset view from the south anchorage in Agua Verde.
After a couple of nights we moved to the north
anchorage and had it all to ourselves much of the time.


This is a video of L-L heading up San Jose Channel from Isla
San Francisco to Puerto Los Gatos. Wind and current were with us!

From Mazatlan we spent one night crossing the Sea
of Cortez to Muertos, one night in Muertos, one night
in Isla San Francisco, one night in Los Gatos before
we dropped the anchor in Agua Verde where we 
stayed for two weeks.


The goats are still making their daily rounds.
We hear their bells every morning and evening.

José's house now has a new porch.
José also has a new dog named Mocha.
She's very friendly, but not a retriever.
We found a tennis ball and threw it to her from
the dinghy, but she didn't have a clue
what to do with it:


Loomba-Loomba in the north anchorage

We did quite a bit of paddleboarding...
The restaurant run by the "Sociedad Cooperativa
Punta Pasquel" is getting better all the time.
The fish tacos are the best and the chile rellenos
and chicken mole are also great. The tortillas
are the best around!
The La Brisa del Mar restaurant is the building with the
flag pole.

Leanor and her family are at the restaurant most of the time.

Sign posted on the beach by the Cooperativo.
They now take recycling and garbage for a small fee and
take it to Loreto.
Having the dolphins come and play off your bow
is always a thrill, but especially when you are
in the dinghy!






Our last night in AV we anchored off of the village beach.
We headed north from Agua Verde on May 11.

Taxco

The taxis are all volkswagon bugs.
There are also a lot of vintage volkswagon
vans in the area.
The town of silver and volkswagons.....
We had both been here (separately) about
50 years ago. it has not changed much.
We DID buy some silver jewelry, but 
there is soooo much that it's a bit overwhelming.



Taxco is a beautiful city with steep and narrow
cobblestone streets.

Riding the teleferico (cable car) up to the top of the hill



We stayed at Hotel Los Arcos
The day we left we took a taxi to the bus station to wait
for our bus to Mexico City. It was Ash Wednesday and
there was this never ending parade of trucks full of people
all being bombarded with water balloons.
The bus couldn't make it to the station so we had to take
a very crowded collectivo up to Hotel Misión where the
bus was waiting for us. There is never a dull moment
when traveling in Mexico.

We are leaving Mazatlán tomorrow 4/23/18 to head
back over to Baja.
