The beach near the Avalon Bridge. It is a great beach for kids, nice sand, not too deep, good snorkeling, great tide pooling. Take water shoes for the tide pools.

Sea glass stuck on a rock. Michelle tried to get it off the rock, when she couldn’t she wanted to bring the rock home, I had to say no, it weighed about 50 pounds.

Dinner at La Lomita, (another first for us).

The food is excellent, inexpensive, the bean soup is awesome, and the staff is wonderful!

The next day we had to visit Dr. Salas, four of the hoglets ended up with “swimmer’s ear" throughout our stay.

Dr Salas is professional, caring, and wonderful with kids, has a great sense of humor and is a great doctor; I wish he was our doctor all the time….hum….that would mean that we would have to live on Isla….hummm…….

We also got to know this local pharmacy staff quite well. They were always helpful and patient with us.

Ileana, the new owner of Cool Ice Cream, made the hogfamily a home made spaghetti dinner. We were joined by Raquel, and her family. We had a great time and the dinner was excellent.

The next day we went to the Colonia Guadalupana Beach.

While waiting for Sr. Plu to take us to the beach we hung out with Sergio.

Photobucket

Sergio is having a difficult time because of the decrease in tourist and he says that people are not buying his Batiks and jewelry as much as before. He makes some beautiful Batiks. Stop by, check them out, and get one or two.
