Around 9:15 we hopped into a pulmonia and went over the the RV park Las Jaibas where Bill and Carol stay.
The gorgeous bougainvilleas were in bloom.
We ended up with 3 other couples following Bill to La Noria. We've been there several times but it is nice.
Love the arches when entering these towns. In 2016 this was blue, in the post above.
This town has been around since 1565 and was mining area for many years.
We stopped at the ironmonger who was working and one guy placed an order for some hooks, a dozen in the shape of an S. They will be ready on Saturday. Carol figures they can find the way, make a left and then a right.
Bill, helping with placing the order for the hooks.
Then to the leather maker, who has made John several belts over the years and another guy had his leather sandals fixed.
I bought one of these painted slingshots for $70 pesos about $5, think it will look cute hanging on the wall in my Mexican kitchen.
John, sneaking a shot of me.
The registrar's office, I just missed a new baby being taken in to be registered. So much nicer than a dreary grey office building.
The museum has never been open when we have been here.
Sitting outside the meat shop, not cooking anything today.
A sidewalk memorial.
Then across to the shoemaker, one of the guys buys a whip, I have no idea why.
We sat outside in the town square in the shade.
The lights in the square.
You can hear the laughter of the children in school close by.
It is at least ten degrees F warmer than in Mazatlan, being inland. John walks to the tienda and gets a bottle of water.
A local checking out our crowd at the shoe maker.
This is where they make the sweet little candies that can be found in many shops around Mazatlan. I bought two boxes of the ones with the nuts.
This is dulce de leche or milk fudge.
Mix milk, sugar, butter, salt, and vanilla in a large heavy pan and bring to boil. Add brown sugar and stir until it dissolves. Continue cooking and stirring mixture over medium heat until it reaches soft ball stage. Stir until thick enough (as for fudge).
Add nuts if desired.
Piping them out.
Random shots of the town.
Some type of bean.
Avocado or guava???
This is a papaya tree.
