Wonderful Adventure To Puerto Vicente Guerrero

Today we got out of town with Ed and Rebeca Kunze for a day trip to Puerto Vicente Guerrero.

Ed brought along Adolpho Jr., from the Dos Hermanos boats, as mate for a few hours fishing while Leslie and Rebeca had the port to themselves.

As we pulled into the port...........flat tire.

This would be taken care while we were all out doing our thing. It's Mexico you know.

While Ed, Adlopho Jr. and I, whit Jesus at the helm, headed out to find clean water and try a little Dorado fishing, Leslie and Rebeca took the Camioneta to the the Hotel Monserrat for breakfast.

Lesile'e says the view was beautiful, the food was very good, and the service was on Mexican time.

It's Mexico you know.

We blanked on Dorado, and ran back into the beach to flail the waters for Roosterfish. After several near misses Adolpho Jr. hooked up, and I boated a nice 25 or so pound Rooster. We photo'd, tagged and released the fish quickly.................and the boat motor began to act up.

It's Mexico you know.

It took us almost an hour to slowly motor around the point to the port, with Jesus nursing the motor to a breakneck (not) speed. When we landed the Tribe was there to unload the boat. As the urchins repacked the gear into the truck and stood expectantly for their reward, Ed told them Lo Siento, no denero! The faces started to fall. Then Ed pulled up the Package. The Package was a stack of Sabiki rigs for catching bait fish off of the pier that the Tribe can then sell to the fisherpersons.

Smiles and hoots of joy all around!!

It's Mexico you know.

So here we sit. Blown and withered from our day away from the hotel beach.

We have our Coconut Candy from the Source to bring home.

We have our kilo of Sea Salt from the Source to bring home.

We have our memories of a day spent with good friends past and new ones made.

It's Mexico............you know?

Ditto Linda- love it!!! 'Teach a man to fish'....much better than teaching them to beg for candy or coins, all right!

Great story! Intrigued by the coconut candy source.. Looks like a new destination for me to try! I brought a kilo of sea salt back from La Barra De Potosi last year and can't wait to get more. The best souvenirs!

Thanks for the great post Keith.

I was a bit tired last evening and forgot to add our lunch at a palapa roofed tienda on the back of the port.

Drink of choice for the five of us.

A dozen fresh Oysters with lime and salt (a little salsa valintine).........(Oh My!)

Orders of Pescadillos (deep fried pouches of goodness filled with fresh fish)

237 pesos
