Received an even longer rain than yesterday in the dark morning hours beginning around 4:30 or so, with rumbling thunder and a nervous chihuahua waking us up. Got so cool we had to pull the sheets up over us and turn the fan down. Perfect sleeping weather in the tropics! Saved me from having to water my plants today.

Still no sign of a government here apart from the street sweepers and garbage collection. Police would be nice. Someone to apply the law and to be able to call when noisy bars keep neighbors awake. Maybe in the next 50 years or so.

Although Mes de la Patria isn't until next month, Calle Cuauhtémoc is all spruced up with traditional papel cortado. I've never known our local government to get so far ahead of things, so it must've been placed there for our summer vacationers.

During our stroll early yesterday evening I thought the dusk light was just perfect for this shot of the fishermen's area.

For months my wife and I have been trying to get the attention of anyone in local government to attend to the problem of the vagabond drunks sleeping on our beach and stealing sea turtle eggs. They stashed their cardboard "bedding" and other stuff in the bushes that surrounded a couple of palm trees on the waterfront. We're not sure who, but someone removed the bushes and replaced them with some small and simple low maintenance plants. Good job! Thank you! You can see the area below as well as Daniel Fermín's sand sculptures on the beach.

The name of the panga, "Fishing Locos", is Spanglish for "crazy about fishing". :fishing:
