We leave the park at about 8 this morning, Bob and Marjorie, Marilyn and I, and we are on a mission. We ride to the water taxi, across the shipping channel, then back on the bikes until we reach the base of El Faro, Mazatlan’s world famous lighthouse.
We lock our bikes, climb an exhausting half mile up into the sky to the top. We are getting better at it. The first time I tried it this year the walk took me over 30 minutes. Now, after about 8 or 10 trips to the tower, I can do it in closer to 20 minutes. The “elite” kids pass me three or 4 times to my one (the record from bottom to top is about 4 or 5 minutes) so I’m slower, but I sure see more.
But I digress.
Back to the bottom (now a half mile down) we scurry, mount up and ride our bikes into the historic part of Mazatlan to Macaws for breakfast.
This place also has a bed and breakfast to die for so here’s a few pictures from upstairs.
Back to the bikes, the water taxi, a ride down the beach and home sweet home, we say hello to our dogs.
Perhaps this afternoon is a good time to catch up on some outstanding chores.
…Macaws are intelligent, social birds that often gather in flocks of 10-30 individuals. Their loud calls, squawks, and screams echo through the forest canopy. Macaws vocalize to communicate within the flock, mark territory, and identify one another. Some species can even mimic human speech.
Sound like any of your friends???
Mucho gracias for the read amigos.
