Well, we're all packed up and ready to go tomorrow morning (sad) but not before enjoying our last evening in Mazatlan. Right now I'm enjoying - you guessed it, wine time on the deck for my last night!
The last few days have been full of similar and regular stuff with some real highlights. On the evening of Day Thirteen we were invited to a party and bbq with local friends. One of the greatest honours you can experience in Mexico is being invited to join a Mexican family for a meal/party. We bbq'ed carne asada and it was probably the best meal I've had. It was so good!! We drank and danced and sang and laughed and all seemed to understand each other although many didn't speak English at all and my Spanish is way more limited than I would like it to be. Fun, Fun, Fun! We also brought an orange and nut cake from Panama Bakery which was very good. When we return at Xmas it will be our mission to get invited to a street party!
Day Fourteen we headed to La Canoa to see our friend Elvia and have some lunch. Great meal! And of course two for one drinks. I'm not a huge Mahi Mahi fan but the three cheese fish looked good to me so I tried it. It was delicious! The three cheese sauce had shrimp in it as well and it was delicious. I'm still not a huge fan of mahi mahi but this meal was good. It was served with rice and a delicious and fresh salad. Really fresh tomoatoes, lettuce, cucumbers and red onions. My husband had the beef nachos which we always enjoy. Elvia was such a dear. Her son is getting married on Saturday and she invited us to come. Again, another huge honour. We tried to change our flights so we could stay and attend but no such luck. It was still so sweet of her to invite us.
That night we went to Vittore for dinner. We have never been there and it was really good. I had shrimp in a pernod sauce with risotto which was just delicious. My son had the spinach and ricotta cannelloni in a gorgonzola sauce and my husband had beef ravioli in a pomodoro sauce. All were very good. And complimentary Kahlua and Milk to finish the meal. Also, the location across the street from the Ramada during Moto Week made for good people (and motorcycle) watching as many were coming and going from there.
So I can't believe that I've made it through the entire trip and haven't had lobster yet. So I needed to have some. La Canoa had no lobster yesterday so I wasn't sure they would have it today otherwise we would have went there. Instead we went to Mr. Lobster and I had the Lobster Thermidor and my husband had the Kahlua Shrimp. Both were delicious as usual. I've read lately that the service there has been hit and miss but our service was excellent. We've been there many times now though and the staff recognize us so it seems that at one time or another they all come over and make sure we have everything we need.
So tonight we're off to the Art Walk and El Presidio for dinner. This dinner has been highly anticipated so I will report on our thoughts after.
The weather has been absolutely perfect and beautiful every day. No big waves yet today but you can see anomalies in the behavior of the water. Maybe tomorrow it will get wild.
