Michoacan Coast to Colola

Michoacan Coast...northbound
I've said it before, and I am sure I will say it again, and again, "The Michoacan Coast is breathtaking".    It was great to drive it again so close to the first time.   We think it wil help to etch it forever in our memories.       

On the way south we put this spot into the GPS and dubbed it "on top of the world".

On the way down the coast we briefly stopped at a place we had hoped we could spend the night, but found it was not for RV's.   We decided to try it again, because of the possibility of seeing turtles on the beach.    This time we asked if we could park for the night and they said we could.   We asked how much and they said for free.    We offered to pay if we could plug in (for air conditioning....yikes it was hot), and they obliged.   We offered them 100 pesos for the night and they were very happy with that.   I'm sure we could have paid less, but we didn't mind one bit.   They were very kind.       

We got a kick out of the 'donkey love' going on.  lol.     We have quite a few pictures of this love affair, but most of them aren't exactly for the family channel.    

We took a walk on the beach.   It was nice to see new construction for a change.   There are so many buidlings falling down along the coast.     This building is directly above the pictures below.
We were mesmerized with this patch of the beach.     The water was churning up from both sides of these cliffs making the little cove look like a wave pool.   

The waves come from both sides, and meet in the middle. 

The fishing appears to be fantastic.

We walked through the little town of Colola to get back from the far end of the beach.   This bus has been converted to a school room.     The town of Colola has a population of 400, I guess they didn't expect it to get that populated when they built the school.

We were very pleased to learn that smaller towns have less roosters.    We both had a great nights sleep.
