6/2/2013 – Photo Post: San Evaristo

For some reason I didn’t take very many photos at San Evaristo.  Maybe it’s because we’ve been there so many times that it just doesn’t seem like there’s anything there that I haven’t photographed before.  There is, of course, but it sort of doesn’t seem like it.

But here are the few photos I took.

I don’t think we’d ever seen the cemetery before.  It’s on the north side of the peninsula which is where we anchored the first couple of nights.

Also on the north side are the salt drying beds.  Here’s a photo of the road from the village over to the north side.

A close up look at the bags showed that they were actually sugar drying beds.  Nah, I’m guessing they just got a good price on some surplus bags.

Finally, a Google Earth shot of San Evaristo:

This just shows the main anchorage and most of the village.  It doesn’t include the north anchorage.

Steve & Lulu... retired. Had enough of the cold wet dreary fall/winter/spring in the Pacific Northwest. Bought a boat, fixed it up, sold our home and sailed to Mexico in November, 2010. Been here ever since except for occasional forays to the States (summer only, thank you) to visit the kids, parents and siblings. If you're looking for a sailing blog, this is the wrong place. This is a traveling, hunkering in, eating blog. Sailing is just how we get from place to place when we can't walk.

    Mexico by the water looks so peaceful. Maybe when we visit Guadalajara in July-August, we will manage a side trip to the ocean. Unlike the Yoders however, we will stay far away from any beaches where bags of white powder are sold.
