|Yelapa old town waterfront|
By the way, we are sitting in a place called Octopus Garden (El Jardin del Pulpo) in La Cruz, a place recommended to us by Steve on the sailboat Landfall with his wife Tamiko and son Eli.

Flowers everywhere, tropical foliage, and a lively little stream led the way a short distance to the head of a canyon where the local waterfall cascades down. Everyone we met was very friendly. On the way up, Connie had looked at some fabric being sold out of a house. On the way back down the owner had already packed up her wares but when she saw Connie she darted out with a purple shawl that had a pattern of turtles. Some negotiation began and soon CB sported some new attire. We visited the local tienda (store) then made our way back to the boat for dinner, cards, and sleep.

By the way, the scupper truly was breaking loose and once at the dock, we had to use a halyard to tilt the boat sideways, raising the hole above the water so I could patch the crack with 5200. With the temporary fix in place we now must press on to Mazatlan where we had already planned to haul her out of the water for other repairs and maintenance.
