The fisherman's walkway has recently been extended to reach below our hotel. Here's Dan exploring the area. We're wondering if and when this walkway will be extended to cover the entire bay. It doesn't matter, though. There's always a way to get from A to B, regardless of a path. (Depends on the shoes.)
This is one of my favorite photos. Because I'm the one with the camera, I always end up with photos of the back of Dan walking toward something. In this photo we're on one of our daily walks through the neighborhood, and every time we pass this place, I absolutely marvel at these lush flowers with the "blue house" as the backdrop. I've since learned this is actually named "Casa Azul" (blue house), and it's for rent.
Here's Rufo's in '06. A review in a local publication "ADIP" or "Another Day in Paradise" described it this way back then: "It starts in the afternoon. First there is a small column of white smoke, then slowly the staccato sequence of little puffs turns into a fragrant stream of smoke signals, making mouths water for blocks around. It is hard to resist the call of this special mesquite wood fire, and of course, this is exactly Rodolfo Perez’ intention. Two years ago, he installed his large, wood-burning grill underneath an enormous amate tree at the corner of Calle Adelita and Nuestra Señora de los Remedios, and began turning this quiet Colonia Madera street corner into a charming garden restaurant called “Rufo’s.”
There have been upgrades since we first noticed this place on the corner just down the hill from our hotel, but it still retains it's charm and recent reviews have only gotten better. I'm excited to go there again. I think it will take us about three minutes on foot to get there if we leave from our hotel. I might have to time it this year.
MJ and Ritches a short distance from the Hotel Irma along the Paseo del Pescador. This is ground level at the beach visited by locals and a few seasoned Z-goers for it's laid back atmosphere and personal service. MJ & Richies is in a great spot on this beach, and according to reviews has great food.
