After a couple of weeks happily anchored at cozy little La Cruz, we finally stepped up to the plate and took the bus (actually, 3 buses) with Rick and Dina of Talaria into the big city about an hour south.
|We're here in Puerta Vallarta...and we SAILED here!|
|Every large Mexican town has a cathedral towering over the town square|
|Puerta Vallarta reminded us a bit of Laguna Beach, the way the homes jutted |
up into the hillside overlooking the waterfront.
|See what I mean? The "malecon" ("waterfront" in Spanish)|
|The Malecon glows after sunset|
|Captain Chris on the Malecon|
|There is a charming flea market on the Cuale River, which runs right through downtown PV|
|Chris' body language says "What am I doing?" as he crosses the suspension bridge over the river|
|Once again I had the sensation that I was at Disneyland, not actually in "real life."|
|Down by the river -- right through downtown! Crazy cool!|
|The Cuale river runs right down to the beach|
|Chris with Rick and Deena of Talaria|
|We ended the day with a trip to the PV Costco|
