Nothing Fishy at the Fish Farm

We dodged traffic thru Mazatlan, cruising the resort strip, imagining cliff divers and mesmerized by the houses virtually built hanging over the cliffs.

We got out to walk the malecon but the kids had no interest, said they didn’t enjoy being in the city preferring the small towns and villages of roads less traveled.

Much of the Pacific coastline here is marshy which naturally includes pesky bugs, crocodiles & other creatures who love estuaries and still waters.  The main highways stay inland so we took the more scenic route finding a place on the beach that might have been Playas El Caimanero though we aren’t sure.

The wind was blowing and we discovered what looked like an abandoned but once-hoped-for fish farm that doesn’t appear to have ever been functioning.

We dubbed this "HOME" for the night

Swept out of debris, blonde crickets and multiple lizards, this provided protection from the ocean winds.

The kids made up games while they explored the fishponds and when the time came they didn’t want to leave.  Not a ‘beautiful’ house but sure fit the bill for the night!!

VIEW FROM OUR KITCHEN:

Some debris we just tossed out the window.  Looking towards the ocean though you can see only a slice of it from the 'fish house'.
