Plain to Zih

The pier construction continues painfully slow. The grua is once again ashore, and the barge with the pilotes is still half sunk in front of the beach.

It looks like the pile-driving adapter for the grua has arrived but not yet been assembled. The 6 pilotes that have been driven have all been cut down to size. If you look closely in the photo towards where the end of the pier will eventually be you'll see a square metal frame that will be used to guide and set the pilotes in sets of 4. I didn't see the work barge in the bay this morning, but maybe they sent it for refueling to the marina in Ixtapa.

A new lonchería is opening up across the street. They've painted a colorful menu on their wall.

This is as far as the pier construction has gotten.
