Springtime in Mazatlán means the end of the winter season. We love our snowbird friends but there is just something wonderful about the change in the city as it starts to warm up. In my opinion it is perfect right now – there are patches here and there where it’s a bit too warm but we’re still sleeping with the windows open and heading out for our exercise even as late as 9 am! Perfection!
After all the festivities of Semana Santa the city slid right in to Moto Week. I always love Moto Week, but this time I decided to just enjoy it and not take any pictures. Below is a video I think is the best that circulated around town… at the very beginning you’ll see Sinaloa’s Governor, Mario Lopez Valdez leading the riders. (black helmet and vest) And… at 20 seconds you’ll see Mazatlán’s Mayor, Carlos Felton, and his wife on a three wheeled Can-am motorcycle. (black baseball cap on him, brown blouse on her) The parade is always a blast, as I’m sure you can tell.
Last night was the final art walk of the season and we had a good time visiting several art venues. It was with sadness that we attended the final night for Luna Gallery, but we’re happy for owner Glen Rogers as she’ll be able to focus more on her own art, her printmaking workshops and her art tours around México.
There is still plenty to do around town, with lots of cultural events fromCultura, and movies and musical events at El Recreo. I’m still crazy for my daily power walk and love to walk at least part of the way in the ocean. But I can see summer on the horizon and am looking forward to a season of home projects, sewing, knitting, reading and cooking through those warm days.
