We spent a last afternoon on the beach yesterday and I did my best to soak up as much of the scene as possible. Mazatlan is a charming city with a gracious people. The seaside, framed by old brightly painted buildings and greenery is captivating. My only regret is I did not come close to sketching as much as I would have liked. I pretty much stayed by the ocean for the three weeks. Perhaps next year I will move beyond the beach into the plazas and streets.
