Let's start with the Baby Jesus. When I published the photo of our new Nativity scene a few weeks ago, He had not yet been born. Thought I would get a shot of Him before they put Him away for the year.
This is one of my favorite, if not THE favorite shops downtown. It is located on the corner across from the entrance to the malecon and heading towards the supermarket and town square. He carries jewelry of all kinds and Talavera items. His prices are fair, he speaks English and I truly believe he is as honest as the day is long.
There appears to be some strengthening work going on in some areas of the new malecon. Looks like some widening and reinforcing with rebar.
Not sure what these huge columns are going to be. I'll keep my eye on them though.
He sells seashells by the seashore. That's as hard to type as it is to say!
This is the huge condo going up at the end of the malecon. Right in front of Playa Secreto. Their website has efficiency apartments listed at $249,000 USD. I haven't seen any work going on there for awhile now and I just recently heard that they have gone bankrupt. Maybe true, maybe not.
I love this information kiosk on the town square. You can pick up that phone, connect to nobody and find out absolutely nothing. As far as I know, it has never worked. Except as a trap for unsuspecting tourists.
Finally! You all know I have been singing about the dangers of the cliffs falling in around here. These signs have gone up all along the cliff side of the island in the past few days. I'll have a separate post about cliffs falling in coming up soon.
A closer look.
What I found hilarious though was that while I was taking these pictures, about 20 yards away, were three golf carts parked. The occupants, including children, were all standing right on the edge of the cliff taking photos.
The gates to a fancy, schmancy home on Sac Bajo. I like them. Clean and succinct.
More bougainvillea. I love it when two or more colors are planted together.
