My wife and I are simple folks with simple tastes who enjoy simple pleasures. A romantic dinner for us is pretty much anywhere but a pretentious restaurant that thinks it knows more than we do about what we like and charges extra just to pretend it does. Quality and excellence are found in knowing not to order an inland city meal or absurdly foreign dishes in a remote tropical Mexican seaside village. While we certainly have some decent Asian, Mediterranean and Anglo-American fare, our best local fare will always be fresh seafood and regional Mexican dishes. And by far one of our favorite go-to restaurants is always La Porteña on the downtown waterfront. A place that is consistent and almost always fairly busy because locals recommend it. And our long-time friend Joaquín, whom my wife knows from his infancy, is the consummate host who always takes excellent care of us.

The waterfront is an oasis for us. One of the few parts of downtown Zihuatanejo not taken over by the alcohol culture, though the zócalo certainly needs some attention since it seems to have been taken over by wandering vendors and dubious cultural events that have little to do with local culture. And the inflatable children's attractions don't even belong there, IMHO (as most of my neighbors will agree). But most of the rest of the waterfront still retains old Zihuatanejo charm which we cherish greatly.

Here are a couple of scenes we enjoyed during our recent evening walks. Some of the evening magic of our beloved Zihuatanejo. I hope you like them, simple as they are.

A couple of evenings ago.

Favor que me haces. :worthy:

Thank you for the kind words. I've been extremely busy as well as a little under the weather for the past couple of weeks so I haven't had time for taking or posting photos. But I'm getting caught up and back to my old wicked ways so I hope to keep taking and posting more photos for everyone's enjoyment.

:megusta:
I created a folder in my PICTURES folder called BACKGROUNDS and then I went to START > SETTINGS > PERSONALIZATION > BACKGROUND and I chose "Slideshow", and where it says "Choose albums for your slideshow I selected the folder I created called BACKGROUNDS. It works best with wide horizontal images, not square or vertical ones. ;-)

Zih Evening Magic - excelente!

We ate at la Portena last night and it was excellent! My friend and I shared a pizza and the other friend, Roland (who has lived here 15+ years) ate lasagna of which was so huge, he got to take home half. The owner has known our friend through the various restaurant locations he's had over the years. We'll definitely return soon...
