Looking for the ship wreck


The rocks below

Almost but not quite

I should have known you couldn't see the wreck of the freighter from the Melaque Mirador because nobody posted it was possible. I had to check it out for myself. It must be a very short distance around the big rock, but I think a panga ride is the only option. So we took some fotos of the ocean and Melaque.

Sailboats and pelicans are back

Sailboats start arriving after hurricane season and that was the end of November. Pelicans arrive with the sardines. Haven't seen many pelicans this year but they are back with their usual dive bombing. Fishing may be bad because of El Niño but that is a guess.

Cuastecomate's new boardwalk

Cuastecomate has a new boardwalk and it just about finishes the wheelchair accessible beach project they have been working on for the last 8 to 10 months. Almost all the palapa restaurants were heavily damaged by Hurricane Patricia and all rebuilt so the whole place looks new.

My half Sunset

Melaque half sunset

I actually had a pretty good view of sunsets until my Canadian next door neighbor built a monstrosity of a house. He claims it's two stories, but I can't see over it from my second story roof. Oh well .... there's no living space on my second floor yet. Just a laundry room and clothes lines.

Laguna del Tule open

I guess that last 2-day rain forced them to open the Lagoon a few days ago. It may also have been related to the sewer pump not working well and aiming black-water at the ocean is better than backing up around town.

Farming again in Pinal Villa

These are Jalapeño chiles growing for the first time here in over a year. There are also tomatoes in the background. This section of land has been too moist to grow anything for the last year. Another large section of land closer to Melaque has grown watermelon every year and this is the second year nothing was planted. Not much can be done when the water table gets as high as it has been.

Pro Animal Melaque Fundraiser

At Restaurante Esmeralda

Please join us for a fun afternoon this Thursday at 1:00PM. Local merchants have donated prizes for each of the games, and there will be a couple of special cash pot games for those who wish to buy an extra card. We've got a lot of great items in our Silent Auction as well, and you don't need to play bingo to participate. 50/50 raffle tickets give you a chance at another cash payout. We also will have for sale some of our logo items (t-shirts & caps).

All of our spay & neuter, medical, & rescue efforts are made possible by our fundraisers, so come out and show your support for the animals of the Costalegre!

The mobile Vivero

He sets up across from Lubin's liquor store and usually has a large variety of live plants and shrubs. It was about Thursday that he switched over to almost exclusively Poinsettias or Flor de Noche Buena, the Christmas Flower. Quite a display.

La Braza finally has signage

I believe the old owner is back, but the place hasn't had a sign for over a month since reopening. I haven't looked at the menu this time, but most people rave about the food. I thought the pizzas were great but some complain about the cheese on top. Go to the end of Taco Row and look left.

Not Bigotes anymore

Happy Hour is 2 to 8 pm

Looks almost the same and using the same but remodeled kitchen .... it is now Bugambilias. With Tecate chairs and shade, they may not have Estrella or Pacifico.

Mucho help after Hurricane Patricia

Los Ingenios near La Manzanilla I think

It took awhile but last week Cruz Roja was passing out tons of stuff in Pinal Villa. Pots and pans, bowls and cups, cleaning liquids, brooms and mops, non parishable food and topped it of with new matresses. 

The week before the State of Jalisco delivered tons of the red lamina to replace roofs.

A few weeks before religious help groups were supplying metal lamina and helping in other ways
