Puerto Penasco Art in the Park

Puerto Penasco, Sonora, Mexico:  Nothing planned today. It was cloudy this morning, so there wasn't a lot of action at the beach. DT and I exercised and then we all walked up to the restaurant at the RV park for brunch. It was a pretty good brunch too - lots of fresh fruits and traditional Mexican dishes, plus a great omelet bar. Things were in a bit of chaos (and a bit amusing), due to the busy (American) holiday weekend crowds, yet we enjoyed a nice meal at a window table.

Later, we drove into town for Art in the Park - a very typical art festival you would find in any town on a weekend. Art in the Park artists are displaying their paintings, crafts and jewelry and musicians are playing under the trees in a city park. None of the items were the usual "stuff" found in tourist areas. DT and I found a cute little cartoon painting of a dog which we think will be nice in Lisa's hall. Lisa may think it would look nice in the back of her closet, but how could we resist that face? (NOTE: The dog is now "hanging out" in our house.)

In the afternoon, the sun came out and it became quite warm - but the wind was too strong to really enjoy the seashore. We sat on beach chairs, using my parent's motorhome as a wind block. The wind didn't stop the weekenders - the beach was very active this afternoon with families enjoying a few days away from Phoenix. Kids were playing in the surf and the vendors were doing a good business selling kites up and down the beach. Dad went fishing and reeled in a huge catch. Here he is with his six-foot plastic garbage prize. The nearby nesting osprey were especially busy this afternoon, entertaining us with their deep sea diving/hunting activities.

After a beautiful sunset, we went into town for more garlic fish. It was a very good and relaxing day. As I type this, the wind is simply howling. Hopefully, it will all blow away and we will enjoy a great day on the beach tomorrow.
