Hubby and I spent five days last week in Mazatlán, Mexico for a early celebration of our upcoming 50th wedding anniversary. We hadn't traveled since hubby's fall last year that left him with problems of being in closed spaces and to my relief he did great on the plane. No issues at all!! We neither are water people except to enjoy looking at it and listening to it and the view from our room accommodated both. I always forget that it is hot and humid in Mexico but if there is a breeze it is all okay.

We could people watch from our perch too.

Where we enjoyed these for lunch

One afternoon we made plans to go to the "Shrimp Bucket" (a famous restaurant we have been to several times) and part of the fun is to ride in the local taxi called a Pulmonia.
 If you have issues with the wind blowing your hair this ride is not for you but oh what fun it is going down the Golden Zone and the ocean so close by.  As it turned out the area of the restaurant was all under construction so we got a free back road tour trying to get to it only to find it was closed. I asked the driver if he would recommend a Mexican food place so he took us to one and trust me, it was the real deal. No one spoke a word of English but the food was pretty good. While eating chips and salsa my hubby said "I think I have a problem" ........His jaw had come out of alignment! His teeth weren't lining up like they were suppose to. I wanted to leave but he stayed calm and said lets eat what we ordered. After getting back to the hotel I googled all I could about it and it said it can just happen and that if you can relax it might go back in so he took a tranquilizer and we had some tequila laid down for a nap and when he got up it was back but sore. Isn't that weird?


Love watching the people and this couple just touched my heart...
They were watching the sun go down and Mexican sunsets are the best!

The restaurant is all open air and I noticed this flower right next to our table. How easy it would be to overlook it.....
This is looking back at our resort from the restaurant

We had been here before but things have changed. It use to be a resort that catered to gringo's but now it is family focused because so much of the travel dropped off when there was such uprising there. The thing that it affected the most was the restaurant menu. No fresh fish but spaghetti and such. However I did have shrimp one night and it was fabulous!

There is nothing like the ocean and the sound of the water. I tried to include a video I had taken but it wouldn't let me send it to my email so this will have to do.

We sat in this little area for a while and there was such a nice breeze as well as a pretty view.

Some guy saw me trying to take a selfie and offered to take our picture so here we are!
Yes he wears his hat everywhere, that's my man.
