End of the season…

May 5, 2011

Here in Mazatlán, the snowbirds have gone North again and those of us who stay all year wonder why they leave so early. The weather is perfect – in the 80’s during the day and 60’s at night.  The beaches are ours again, and the water is pleasant. Beer is 15 pesos, you can buy a mango on a stick or a cup full of cut up watermelon… and along with a good book, what more could you want?x

Last night was the final opening of the season at Luna Gallery.  What a fantastic addition this gallery has been for art lovers in Mazatlán!  The show – Visiones y Obsesiones, is a wonderful mix of works where each artist explored their own visions and obsessions.

This coming Friday is the final Art Walk of the season, from 4-8 pm.  Then, at 8 pm we are heading to the Angela Peralta Theater for a performance by the Sinaloa Symphony Orchestra of the Arts conducted by Gordon Campbell.  The program includes pieces by Chopin, Brahms, and Rimsky Korsakov.  Cost is from 80 to 200 pesos, so very affordable for such great music in a fantastic restored treasure of a theater. x

There are a few more things coming up to keep us busy through the summer.  But I know I am looking forward to a bit quieter life, projects at home and lots of reading and visiting with friends at the beach.x

More about Nancy

I'm Nancy, a US expat living in San Antonio Tlayacapan, Jalisco after 11 years in Mazatlán, México.

    1. I too am looking forward to this quieter time of the year. Partly the heat and partly the exodus of the snowbirds, it is a wonderful time. I’m always ready for more socializing in the fall but also anxious for it all to slow down in the spring. I guess our season of rest is summer vs winter in the north.

      1. I still say “this winter” when I mean “this summer” because it is the least pleasant weather of the year. Enjoy your summer, I know I will!

    1. If I were a snowbird, I would definitely stay in Mazatlan longer. It’s still snowing here in Montana-80’s sounds heavenly to me.

    1. We fly North because we have to….period! Money and health care! One day we will be there forever or so I hope. Lovely exhibit and I am so very glad you will be attending the symphony. Colin has met Me Campbell in Culiacan and had dinner with him many times. I so so hope that the symphony performances will be increased!!

    1. Summer is my favorite time of year! I love the incredible storms, and by FAR the best sunsets are in the summer. Winter weather is nice, but so boring after a while.

    1. They are selling sweat rags on Calle Serdan, a sure sign that summer is coming. I know you will have some wonderful knitting projects completed by the end of the season, Nancy, and maybe I will finish my endless afghan. I am looking for a free university course to take online and of course am loading up the Kindle. But I’m looking forward to some visiting with you, too!
