A Day In Playa Azul
Good morning roosters!!!! They actually crow off and on all night long, but they get extremely vocal around 5:30 a.m. While it is not the end of the world, it is however not our cup of tea. We will be heading back north today. Sayulita is our eventual long-term destination. We love it there, and have decided that we have Turtled enough for a while. We will stay put until it is time to start our slow trek back to Canada in midish-March. Sayulita is 399 miles from here, so it will take a few days. It will be marvelous to have another look at the Michoacan coast so soon after our first trip down. We will take it more slowly this time, so we can't promise much in the way of blogging for a couple of days....but you never know when the internet will cooperate.
Back to Playa Azul. We have had opportunity to practice some Spanish here. Few people speak English, so they have not been as accomodating as the folk in the more touristy areas north of here. This town caters to Mexican tourists, and seems to be very busy on the weekends, and perhaps in the summer months, but the beach was practically deserted when we were walking it yesterday.
As far as the eye can see there are restaurants on the beach...all empty, all full of plastic chairs waiting for someone to sit in them.
This beach would be a stone collectors paradise!!!! The stones come in all shapes and sizes and colours.
The family that fishes together.......
The shoes hanging on the wire is a sign of gangs. I surmise one gangs territory ends and another one begins. Mexico is not the only place you will see this, it is an international sign that is well understood by the groups that need to know.
Can you see Myrtle in the background of this picture? We have a lovely view of the swimming pool. This water was COLD, and ever so refreshing!!!! Playa Azul is the hottest town we have been in on our journey. This is the only place it didn't cool down at night. I couldn't for the life of me figure out how this pool stayed so cold, until we say them vacuuming it. When they vacuum, they actually empty out a lot of water, then refill it will fresh cold water.
Brenda's computer seems to be pooched. Have you ever seen this on your screen? The usb ports have been unreliable for about a month now, it has been periodically having fatal errors which culminate in a blue screen and a reboot, then three days ago it lost wireless capability. Yesterday, after this lovely screen appeared, Brenda decided to reload it for the 4th time in a month. It didn't help.
