After a glorious breakfast and a walk on the pier we returned to Tess’s condo by way of the beach. along the way we met a very social pelican. i shot some video that i will put up here eventually. Download pelican video here.

Mazatlan is very touristy beach side town. Beneath the Americanized restaurants and hotels are wanna be tourist traps and expensive meals. Eric wanted seafood, but it was quite expensive all around. We finally found a nice taco stand run by some very social locals. Back on the road.
Beaches of Topolobampo
We drove down the coast to Los Mochis. Stopping for some sites before we drove on to Topolobampo. Amazingly beautiful beaches (though eric says the southern beaches are where it’s really at). You could tell this was a tourist destination, but it was almost completely deserted on a Wednesday afternoon. The sand was amazingly fine and the surf was warm. They call this the Sea of Cortez in Mexico and the Gulf of California in USA. We found a restaurant to grab some seafood and a sangria before playing in the water for a bit. Unfortunately we didn’t have much time to play, we are still making up the time we lost in Nogales. We want to make it to Mexico City by Friday
