Back on the Boat

Arrived back in Mazatlan, much warmer then at home. All our friends are teasing us because we are white. We just tell them it is the frost and ice on us and once it melts we will be a little darker. Ball game Friday night and Mazatlan lost, they are having a poor season. Starting to get the boat shipshape but hard to get much done with so much visiting.

Supper time

Al Jolsen

Even the jazz festival got a statue



What color


These large statues are made with a metal frame of rebar and then covered with heavy duty shrink wrap according to Lynn.


Driving or walking on the Malacon during carnival you will find numerous statues this years. The theme was magic lantern, which means movie projector. The statues were of movie stars most had some ties to Mexico.


We watched this heron for just about 30 minutes with the fish it caught


Can I get it down


Down it goes, wonder how much water I will need to drink for it to go all the way down


A new use for scratched CDs.


We are so glad we do not have clean up the paper confetti that is used durning carnival

This season the El CID has become a supporter of the orphanage home ran by the Salvation Army. The kids have performed every Tuesday eve. plus El CID also put on a benefit breakfast to help raise funds . The home has 30 kids plus it also supplies meals to many of the children in the colonia. It was really great to see how the kids improved in there dancing and singing from Christmas time to present.

The show was very entertaining. Some of our land friends were there, they said these were not the same performers as in previous years. We all thought the show was very funny.
