There's No Sunshine When She's Gone

Been three days of clouds and problems with this dang tablet but I'm back, the sun is out and fun is happening everywhere!

Yesterday was a full day.  Cathy and I started our day at Mango's for breakfast.  I can't say I loved it.  First off, as you know, I don't like eating inside and when they enclosed the restaurant it really took away a lot of the charm.  Yes, there is outdoor seating upstairs but we were one of only two tables in the whole place.  The food was fine but pricey and certainly not one of the many breakfast deals that you can get nearby.  Took a look at the lunch/dinner menu.  Nothing special but we may return for dinner to try it if others want to.

We then headed out for our long beach walk and boy is there still a lot of damage and repairs to be done due to last fall's storms.  The beach is very different and Mother Nature has a lot of work to do restore the beautiful beach.  At one point we couldn't get around the rock wall down by Playa Mazatlan and got caught by some waves.  We were soaked - and heading to Mega!

Once we got our groceries we headed to Olas Altas.  The sun was starting to come out then and we enjoyed our walk along the Malecon.  We stopped at El Fish Market for lunch and enjoyed a decadent meal of Alaskan King Crab Legs and a Tostado filled with shrimp, octopus, scallops and tuna.  It was delicious!

Then we headed into Centro and went to Water's Edge to pay for my upcoming cooking class with Alastair and then went to Macaw's for the Mexico Murder Mystery.  It was entertaining and Wendy really carried the show.  Everyone had an enjoyable evening and the food was good.  Those mashed potatoes that they serve with their Southern Fried Chicken is amazing!  We made reservations to return for Sunday brunch before we left.

Then we headed to see the All Stars and Rob's Dance Party at El Chupeteria. Ran into friends, danced a little and then it was time to head home.  Got to the front door and Cathy wanted some wings so we headed to Vancouver Wings, a place she had discovered on her trip here in November.  She went up from 2 to 3 on "burn your face off wings".  I guess I'm not really a chicken wing gal in Mexico so no late night snack for me!

Well, the sun is out and it's a beautiful day in Mazatlan.  Friends are having a taco party around the pool that we have to get to and then we're off to Diego's Beach Bash for the day!  


  1. Sounds like you are having a great time!

  2. I guess you see what I mean about Mango's. It just doesn't do it for me.
