The Rest of Mazatlan
We didn’t plan to spend seven weeks in Mazatlan. In fact, we planned to be there for only one week, but life is like that… plans change and flexibility is the key to new opportunities. We stayed longer to have a boat project completed (to be covered by Wags in a separate entry), which turned into another boat project and a quick trip back to the States to renew our Mexico visitor permits.
The extra time in Mazatlan gave us the chance to make some new friends, volunteer with the local animal shelter (Amigos de los Animales),
and see and do so much that this city has to offer. There are beautiful plazas and the basilica:
The public market with its fresh produce and yummy street side food vendors:
Stunning natural scenery:
Architectural and cultural sites:
And every thing in between:
Sometimes we have to remind ourselves to slow down. This time we did.
A little more Mexico exploration then we’ll keep the boat in Puerto Vallarta for the summer hurricane season. We’ll pick up again in the fall and continue south to Central America. The current plan is to make a right turn next spring and check out the Galapagos before the downhill run. Let us know when/where you’d like to join!
Billyshakes says…you guys are my heroes. Sooo, when I look at the map, my question becomes, What next?
-Are you making for the trades on the outside, and the downhill run to Papeete?
or will it be

Enjoy your retirement in installments, Travis McGee style.
