After a long day at work nothing soothes the savage beast better than a nice cold Vicky and a stroll along the Zihuatanejo waterfront with my sweetie. The sights, sounds and smells of the beach and bay are invigorating yet relaxing at the same time. It has always been the center of the Zihuatanejo community, a place that defines Zihuatanejo. A link to Zihuatanejo's past and hopefully also to its future.

Tanned and smiling faces were everywhere early last evening enjoying their summer vacation. This is what Zihuatanejo is all about! The children especially enjoying themselves and having fun on the beach and at the Cancha.

Here are some of the old original pilings used to build the old pier. The Sector Naval incorporated them into their beach entrance steps. There's another one erect in the sand next to the sea turtle hatchery pen with a beacon on top.

These old pilings weren't brought here by ship as I had originally been led to believe. It turnes out they were made here back in 1957.
