Lazy Sunday in Loreto

Got up late this morning, I purposely slept in until 6:30.  Coffee was ready and I got up the troops.  We piddled around the condo for awhile and then headed into Loreto for a walk through the Sunday market and breakfast.   It's after noon now and we are just getting back.  Sunny and warm, about 28C degrees and a cool breeze blowing through the house.  No screen are needed here and you can sleep with everything open.   Makes for great sleeping.

At the market located off of Miguel Hidalgo all the way to the end passing the railroad tracks, there are all types of vendors.  Mostly used clothes and household articles but quite a bit of fresh fruits and vegetables.  Much better than in the little supermarket El Pescadero in town.   We found fresh frozen shrimp as well (oxymoron).   

Brother Steve has a swollen foot, a problem he has that comes and goes.  It has something to do with a tendon.  We found him a good walking stick at the market and he hobbles much better now.  We found everything we were looking for and worked up quite an appetite.  We headed over to Los Mandiles for breakfast, a typical Mexican restaurant where we had fresh Mexican bread made on the premises and huevos rancheros, omelet, chorizo and eggs, and motuleños.   Coffee was excellent and the service friendly but a bit slow.

Now we are Skyping family in the U.S. for Easter Sunday.  What's next?  A nap and then over to the Loreto Bay Inn Hotel to see what is going on there, a dip in the bay and reading under a palapa.  Now I understand the life of a snowbird wintering in Mexico.  This is addictive.


  1. What a lovely day! Chuck and I were last in Loreto in 1995. We were there occasionally over 3 years or so, sailing. I am delighted that it seems not to have changed much! Thanks for the post!

  2. Sleeping in late? I guess if you go by east coast time... Welcome to hitch itch - we are Jorge and Evielynne from there. My husband has never been to Mexico but I have and I loved every minute of it...
    Happy Easter!!
