Cruise Ships

Zihuatanejo was host to two cruise ships this week end.  They always add a little excitement to the community with the town making an effort to keep the tourists and their money in Zihuatanejo instead of Ixtapa. I saw one group of tourists being guided through El IMG_0195Centro on their way to the Mercado as they passed through my alley.

Dancers performed at the artist park where many local vendors were displaying their wares.  I’m always amazed at the stamina of the dancers in full costumes and masks that all look to be heavy and hot.


The next day an even larger cruise ship , but was only here for a few hours, went down to Playa Madera to get a good look at it, but I couldn’t get a decent photo of it due to the way it was moored.  I thought when we walked down the beach later we would get aIMG_0203 broadside view, but then it was gone.  On the walk back to town we saw the ice cream man.   I swear the best ice cream ever comes from the guys with these big stainless steel tubs that offer 3 flavors, coconut, vanilla and lemon.

I’m assuming it was because of the two cruise ships being here, but a real show of security was  seen all about town.  Military, Police and National Guard all highly visible all through out the town on foot, trucks, motorcycles on the beach. Quite impressive!

I’m starting to get the hang of moving pictures around with I cloud, but it’s time consuming process for me, but a least I can do it now.  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 love to travel to new places, getting ready to do that as a solo traveler. For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and have joined a couple of hiking groups. I'm a reader and love my kindle. I still work some, I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 20 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. The Senior is no longer with me, his choice, and I am OK with that.

  1. I love reading your posts.  I am probably buying a park model in Tucson.  Going down in a week.  Still on for Italy in May. Then back to Washington for a few months. Then Tucson next winter. Thank you.
