  • Stone Island – Isla de la Piedra


    11 of us on the way out to Stone Island

    Stone Island is a short ferry ride away and is an amazing strip of peaceful, quiet beach.  Restaurants line the beach in an atmosphere that is pure Mexico.  Many restaurants are thatched roof bungalows and palapas with a kitchen in the back, possibly a bar…or at least a fridge of beer.  The tables are in front so everyone has a view of the beach.  And if you buy lunch then you are welcome to stay all day in the restaurant of your choosing, using whatever amenities that they have to offer.

    Isla de la Piedra es un corto trayecto en ferry y es una banda increíble de playa apacible, calma. Restaurantes en la línea de la playa, en una atmósfera que es puro México. Muchos restaurantes están bungalows con techo de paja y palapas con una cocina en la espalda, posiblemente un bar … o al menos una nevera de cerveza. Las tablas están en frente así que cada uno tiene un punto de vista de la playa. Y si usted compra el almuerzo, entonces son bienvenidos a quedarse todo el día en el restaurante de su elección, con lo que sea comodidades que tienen que ofrecer. » Read the rest of the entry..

  • Ginger’s bilingual Horses


    Me and Renee getting ready to ride

    This adventure was a result of my friend Renee who is a self-confessed horse fanatic.  Renee spent her childhood riding and showing the large beasts and loves to go to Ginger’s whenever she is in town.  Ginger is one of those people that everyone knows.  A lovely lady who has lived in Mazatlan for over 30 years and is the owner of Ginger’s Bi-lingual horses, one of Mazatlan’s best known attractions.  Renee insisted on dragging me out for a ride, and not one to turn down new adventures…I let myself be hauled out to the Northern end of Mazatlan. » Read the rest of the entry..
