Table of Rocks

10 April 2012 | La Cruz, Banderas Bay, MX
La Cruz is a traditional fishing village and small beach town, filled mostly with locals and not that many tourist. When we walk the cobblestone/dirt roads in town, we feel we are in an authentic mexico town. There is an open aired fish market daily, located near the marina. It opens first thing in the morning and stays open through the afternoon. Fisherman drop off their daily catch and anyone can buy the fresh caught fish. Varieties include fish as red snapper, tuna, wahoo, mahi mahi, shrimp, lobster and many others.

We have been to the beach a few times, which is just a small walk from the marina. Most of the time, we are the only gringo's at the beach, surrounded by local families. The locals come prepared for a day at the beach with tables, chairs, canopy, fire pit, coolers, and food. We've seen Dune buggies, with kids hanging off every possible bar of the buggy, ride right up on the beach and unload their garb. (No rules here at the beach, no giant signs telling you what you cannot do like in the states) There are also lots of kite surfers, sailboats, powerboats, tour boats, pangas, fishermen and jet ski's enjoying the bay water.

On Saturday, we wandered into town and came upon a wonderful street fair around a town park. There were all types of food vendors (we paid a little over a dollar for 3 fully loaded hot dogs), carney games, which resemble USA type fair games but also different, trampolines and rides for the kids etc. The one game that got our attention was the table full of rocks. As we walked up, we saw a couple tables covered with a large pile of rocks 15' long by 3' deep around a foot high, with hand sized rocks. Above this was the carney game of breaking the bottle. The punchline was the reward for being successful...BEER!! For 20 pesos, you could throw 3 rocks, 1 bottle broken and you win a can of beer, 2 bottles broken got you two beers, and three bottles broken with your three rocks gets you a six pack of beer! Wow we love Mexico!

Easter Sunday was occupied with a day of swimming and holding down the sand on the beach. On Monday, we treated oursevles to some fresh seared tuna steaks and worked on small boat projects. Tonight we're back off to explore the town more. We may not make it to Puerto Vallarta, as we love La Cruz so much.
