From Feb. 5 to 12 we camped at a small RV park / Cantina in El Golfo, Mexico. Here are some scenes from around the fishing village of about 5000 people.
Old fishing boats are still useful, in this case as a breakwater against the high tide!
El Golfo is a village in a virtually colorless desert. The most colorful place in town seems to be the cemetery, with all the flowers covering the graves and the brightly painted mausoleums. This sculpture of dolphins is decorating the tomb of a fisherman I would guess.
Being a true fishing village, the launching and retrieving of the fishing boats was a daily event. The catch of the day seemed to be shrimp, but I would assume there are seasons for other fishes too.
