Saturday Morning In Mazatlan

I started my day yesterday with a trip to the dentist. Marilyn wasn’t feeling well so I set off on my own. I hopped the water taxi from the island to the mainland and then set out on foot for old town and my date with the dentist Susana.

As I left the Embarcedero I passed the the dozen or so fish merchants set up by the tracks. You don’t have to look to know these guys are there. If the smell doesn’t give them away the dozens of pelicans hanging around waiting for a hand out will.

 As  I neared the Navy base I could see the familys and loved ones of the enlisted, all dressed in their finest, waiting to see their kin.  Most Mexicans work a six day week til about noon or so on Saturday but the tempo of the city is definetley down a notch on this the sixth day.

I am now less than a week away from having two new crowns of my own to brag about. Including the root canal, the post and two crowns the total will be 9800 pesos. That’s about $825 or so in dollars.

After my appointment I walked back via a different route to the Embarcadero. I’d planned on buying my not feeling good sweety some flowers but back on the island chose a couple of bottles on wine instead. How can you go wrong with wine?

What do you think of the new background on the blog? Recognize it? It’s one of Marilyn’s paintings. She did it last year about this time over on the Caribrean coast in Tulum. Here’s the painting we saw then.

You can see more of Marilyn’s art here.

Thanks for the read.
