Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

Mazatlan's Central Market

I love this place.
Just love it!
Except for the slippery tile floors that have wet spots.
Not good if you are wearing Crocs...
But other than that, I love it!

I love the bright flags that hang from above.

I love the perfectly arranged fruits and vegetables.

And the sorted beans, spices and chilies.

The little restaurants on the second floor serving local specialties, all named after the female who owns them.

The pigs! Well, not that I love seeing these heads, but sure love to torment the people in the USA who are not used to seeing this!

And - your Mazatlan pictures remind me of how much I miss Mexico. Kirby and I talk often of ending up in that lovely city someday. Who knows??

Thanks for posting all this wonderful pictures. Miss you guys!

What great memories that brings back. I remember Kirby saying "oh it's just another couple of blocks", and walking another couple of miles. Definitely one of our favorite place in Mexico. Thanks for the pics. Hi to Don and Lenna and have a cold cervaza for us.

Sure reminds me of where I would like to be. When I was cruising Mexico I thought that Mazatlan was too far north in the winter, HA!
