|Fishing pangas at rest on a Sunday afternoon while everyone plays|
On Sunday morning we took a long walk through peaceful Viejo Mazatlan (Old Town) in order for me to photograph the colorful restored colonial buildings from the 1800's. We started at Plaza Machado, and wound our way through the maze of cobblestone streets.

|The unrestored buildings are just as interesting as the restored.|
|Lots of ornate decorative entrances|
|Lots of bright colors are used in restoration|
After of couple hours of Darrell waiting patiently for me "capture the right mood" of the town in photos we ended up at the beach. We had a nice long stroll along the Malecon - which was a dramatic contrast from Old Town.

|Now that's a great view to enjoy a cerveza|
|Perhaps a little shopping after lunch?|
On the coast of Mexico, Sundays are major family days filled with live music, laughter, food and drink at the beach. No surprise that Sunday is our favorite day of the week.

The Malecon in Mexico is a wonderful spot to people watch, exercise, and to enjoy the many wonderful bronze sculptures that line the boardwalk. Some are comical, some are lovely sealife pieces, some are religious in nature, and some are darn right erotic. The people of Mexico have a very healthy attitude towards sex - and there is plenty of public displays of affection - lots of hand holding, kissing, and well simply put, " making out" by the younger generation. I am not sure if life imitates art, or the other way around, but I do know that this sexy Sirena has definitley reeled in her catch.

|Hey, where's Betsy and David?|
Before sailing the 131 nautical miles south to Mantenchen Bay Sparky needed one final beach romp before enduring the 20 hour passage.
