Isla de la Piedra, Mexico, el diecinueve de noviembre, 2019

My mission today was to go to Isla de la Piedra - Stone Island.  I walked quite a distance to get on a small boat to take me across the inlet where a monster was docked-

The island is pretty small and I was wondering where the beaches were-

but once docked, I had to walk to the other side.  Luckily it was only a couple of kilometres.

I was sitting on a chaise lounge by 10:30 enjoying the peace, quiet and a Pacifico-

when all hell broke loose.  In no time the place was very crowded-

I bet throughout the day I was asked by 50! pedlars selling jewelry, sarongs, woven beer bottle holders, wooden beer steins, coconut mobiles, hats, kites, massages, cut up fruit, ballcaps and my favourite: oysters-

 They were so fresh and delicious!  I went in the water a few times and had a little snooze.  Lunch was great too-

Guacamole and pico de gallo!

Leaving the beach, I noticed a lot of people heading the opposite direction I was going and soon discovered I came on the wrong boat this morning.  I went back on one that is much closer to where I live and docks and loads much closer to the beaches. Theresa and her husband were returning at the same time.  It’s such a small world.  Walking home - such beauty-

Tomorrow, November 20, is Revolution Day and there’s a parade starting at 8 am on the Malecon.  That’s where I’ll be too!
