Eleven years ago today Duke and I were married. It has been a wonderful eleven years! How better to celebrate than with another day full of Mexican vacation adventures in Mazatlán.
I love sitting at a sidewalk table and people watching. This morning we had our breakfast sitting at a sidewalk table right outside our hotel. We watched as a parade of really cute little boys and girls each holding an adult’s hand went by every few minutes. The girls all had on sailer dresses and had bows in their hair. I assumed they were on the way to preschool in their uniforms.
After breakfast we went across the street and found out we could pay a small fee and see the inside of Teatro Ángela Peralta. They had pictures of what it looked like before it was rebuilt. It was a complete ruin.
But now it is a completely restored arts center and theater. We went into the theater. On the stage were all the cute little girls in sailer dresses doing a dress rehearsal of a dance performance to the song Soy Libre from Frozen ( Let it Go). Watching them practice made me so happy! They looked and danced exactly like my daughters did when they were four years old in their dance recitals. It must be a universal ritual of Spring! Little girls everywhere are princesses dancing in dance recitals.
After breakfast we explored Mazatlán some more then had ice cream in the square. During the day it is so hot that we saw few people out and about. Tonight though after dinner we strolled around the square. Everyone was out walking, sitting, eating and listening to the live music.
We had dinner on the roof of our hotel and listened to a great singer, Cheryl Gaudet. We bought her CD to be a reminder of our very special anniversary in Mazatlán.
