Agua Verde

Arrived in Agua Verde this morning. There's a village with a little tienda so we can get some produce, goat cheese, fresh tortillas - and we can catch fish. What more do we need?????
Weather is perfect. Water temp is 75 and warming up. Time to blow up the Stand Up Paddleboards and stay awhile.
Would love to get an email to: WDF5255@sailmail.com

Left Marina

We didn't leave Marina Mazatlan as planned on Thursday due to thunder,lightening,and squalls right around Maz. Left this afternoon and we are anchored at one of the little islands just off of Mazatlan. (Sort of reminds us of Cabo). Lots of sunset cruises, music, jet skis, banana boats, party boats,parasailers, etc.. The dark clouds are moving north and we're supposed to have SSE/ winds for the next two days - perfect. We are planning to leave for Baja (Isla San Francisco?)at first light tomorrow.

Impending Departure: Time to Stock Up

Durango, Durango, Mexico

The new highway 40 was completed two years ago.  There are 115 bridges and 63 tunnels. It took five years to complete and it cut 5 hours(by car) off of the trip  between the two cities.

It was a beautiful trip through the Sierra Madres.



Constitucion is a seven block long pedestrian  only street in the heart of the city. It is lined with sculptures and stars (like Hollywood) of actors who have been in movies filmed in the Durango area.


Durango is a colonial town with a huge mining history and is filled with colonial buildings. 




This is Wallenders Deli - very trendy!


There are many beautiful old churches. This is the Cathedral on the Central Plaza.
