Ixtapa Marina Where the Big Yachts Dwell

Having heard about the Ixtapa Marina,  and the big expensive yachts that moor there naturally I wanted to go and see how the other half live. Our friends Faye and Paul offered to be our “tour guides” on this breakfast adventure as they knew the places to go on this adventure. So off we are on the Ixtapa/Marina bus where our first stop was the liquor store, probably the largest liquor store in the area, huge selection, prices seems normal and it also has so some interesting goodies.

Next stop “The Oyster Bar” well at least until 1:00 when it becomes Fishers with a whole new set of prices. The menu was full of items I had never heard of.  While I am a  believer that ” breakfast is what you call a meal with out wine” but here this menu had 3 suggestions under the heading BREAKFAST COCKTAILS.  Now how can you refuse that! I ordered a Pepenillo or something spelled similar to that . It was

Tangeray, cucumber and lime soda and probably the most refreshing drink ever created beautifully served in a large green rimmed glass. So pretty and tasty that Faye found it necessary to have one too.

I always enjoy trying something new so I ordered a poblano enchilada with eggs which arrived on a large platter smothered in a delicious sauce. It was super good, but too much  so I was able to share some with Paul and Faye.  The Senor, who rarely tries anything new, stuck with his fish tenders refusing my offer to share with him.

Ixtapa Marina

We had a great view of the marina with all the big expensive yachts.  This is quite a change for us coming from Puget Sound, the small boat capitol of the world were every marina is jammed full  but not many of these big boys.

This is definitely a place to revisit.  Signing off KO

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like as I'm semi retired. I prefer that phrase to working part time. I would travel to new places, my husband Doyle, not as adventurous as I is more comfortable with the tried and true. Thus we have fallen into a routine (not a rut) of going to Zihuatanejo for 3 months January and February, March. Pendleton Oregon for the Round Up. Plus numerous short trips. We are "RVers". For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and read my new kindle. I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 40 weddings a year, and also operate a small delivery service. Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency, In 2016 My husband began chemo for Chronic lymphoma Leukemia, while doing well this has changed some of our travel habits. Relaxing in Mexico suits him well, for that I am thankful. KO
