February 1, 2014 The Freeze Continues

A beautiful sunny day here but dam cold!  Excursions for the day involved going to the bank, finding a new grocery store and checking that out, a quick stop at Home Depot and WalMart and then home.  Oh almost forgot, went to visit a travel agency as well to try and find a deal to Las Vegas, Mexico, get my drift, someplace where the temperatures are well into the plus figures!  No luck so decided to try and find something online at home.  Wanted to use air miles but there seem to be a lot of ``qualifications required`` to do so. 
This picture was taken from the balcony at Torres Mazatlan where wonderful times were spent with friend Jackie & John.  Jackie is the person that got me interested in Blogging and here is a link to her site.

Mazatlan, a Nahuatl word meaning “place of the deer,” is within 10 miles of the Pacific coast. Mazatlan is also right below the Tropic of Cancer, which puts it at the same latitude as Honolulu.
Because of it’s location, Mazatlan has has very mild weather. This weather includes a mild winter, and very little rain from the end of October to June. Throughout the year, temperatures generally range from 68 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mazatlan is also known as the “Pearl of the Pacific,” and is Mexico’s largest commercial port. In fact, Mazatlan is one the largest West Coast seaports, behind only the Los Angeles port, and the Panama Canal. Because of the port’s size, it is a stop for many cruises, including many that travel around the world.
The harbor in Mazatlan is the meeting point for the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean.

Walking up the beach to the restaurant for an afternoon brew!

Downtown Mazatlan along the water.  Not so sure I would want to live on this hill!

Along the water`s edge!

Jackie and I looked out at the Sea of Cortez enjoying a brew!  Notice a theme here!
