Rested and Reconnected
25 November 2013 | Marina Mazatlan
Beautiful - as always
Rarely have we encountered such friendly strangers. Everyone on Dock 6, has stopped by to welcome us, give us local information, and invited us to the daily “Safety Meeting”. The daily Safety Meeting appears to be a thinly veiled excuse to put folding chairs on the dock and enjoy good companionship and adult beverages.
Now rested from our passage, we met our friends from Hilbre, Lunacy & Traveler, plus some new friends, at the Isla Palapa for an evening of live music, food etc. We had 4 fish tacos for $8. Yummy. John, from Hilbre, snagged for us a copy of a booklet with Mazatlan resources including details of the bus schedule. The bus system here is excellent. Cruisers that have cars here, leave them parked and take the bus for errands. For 50 cents each we can ride anywhere in Mazatlan. Unless, we want to take the luxurious tourist bus, with air conditioning and (sometimes) videos playing. The tourist bus costs an exorbitant 70 cents.
We gathered, with our friends, for dinner at a local restaurant, where it was immediately apparent that the building codes are more relaxed south of the border. The electrical outlet box was nailed to a tree trunk, as shown in the photo.
