Pirate Ship

This morning we had to go uptown for some business and also to take some shoes in to be repaired.
We found a shoe repair place and he told us he would both glue and sew both pairs of shoes and the cost would be 60 pesos, about $6.00. The soles were both coming off of my pair and on Roys the straps needed repairing. We thought that was not a bad price so left the shoes with him. He said they would be done by 6 or 7 PM this evening; but I will wait and pick them up when I go for spanish class tomorrow. Hopefully he does a good job on them, I am not really concerned as the quality of workmanship is usually pretty good here.
We wandered over to the Plaza de Pescador and took a look at some stuff that was on display and then went to see if we could see the pirate ship. It was anchored out in the bay so we got a good look at it. If you look closely you can see that it is flying the Jolly Roger as any good pirate ship should be, just to let you know their business.

While we were standing there another tour boat was pulling into the area. We saw this boat in the bay last year when the Nauticopa races were on, I think it is out of San Carlos; but am not sure.

Another look at the marina.

Hi Brenda!

Love the pirate ship photo. Can you tell if the tourists are down this year with the cost of fuel or is it too early to tell?

Brenda said...

glorv1: yes, it is lovely here.
Juan: too early to tell if tourism will be hurt by the price of gas or not and I am not sure if I will notice anyway as we seldom go to the tourist town of San Carlos. If it does not go down it could be interesting there as there are rumors of one RV park closing. I don't think there are enough other spaces available to take up the slack so who knows what will happen.

Arggh, ye olde Pirate Ship! I did not realize that it sailed down to Guaymas. We had a lot of fun on that one New Year's Eve.
