One of the things I thought deserved some mention are the artful walls in some of the restaurants on Isla...and most of them are quite good! This one is at Justicia Social.
And this was sitting on the front porch of a house in honor of Navy Day.
I 've only been going to Isla since 2006, so I can just imagine how things have changed since, say, 20 years ago. But even in only two years, things have had their share of changes...like the Palacio Municipal. This is from September of 2006 when they were digging everything up.
Even though I never ate there, I always liked the way Loncheria Chely looked across from Alexia & Geovanny's.
There is a big change from this...
But they'll never be able to improve on this...
Houses and stores are always getting painted new colors.
Plaza del Sol...
I didn't get a front shot of the lighthouse at Gran Puerto this time...will work on that next time.
A shot from Jax while I was working on the blog.
It always amazes me how blue the water is.
Just thought I'd throw this in of my free Isla souvenirs. I met up with Marianne for a couple of buttons, collected some very interesting shells...and just had to take a chipped off piece of the old turquoise posts.
The next set of photos is for my special friend in South Dakota...Paul Mitchell (no, not the hair products guy). Paul sells Harley-Davidson motorcycles for a living and he was asking me whether they rent Harleys on Isla. When I stopped laughing, I told him, "No, Paul, you'd just have to pretend on a scooter." No wide open roads on Isla and the speed bumps and slow golf carts would be a considerable frustration to any Harley rider. I took this first picture because it reminded me so much of the Sturgis Rally! HaHaHaHaHaHa!
This is the closest thing I could find to a Harley. You don't see too many scooters with fringe on the handlebars on the island.
And when they're parked, they do double duty as pet beds!
