Ajijic & Lake Chapala

Last week we went exploring.
We stayed at B&B in Ajijic a town situated on the north shore of Lake Chapala in the state of Jalisco.
Lake Chapala is the largest freshwater lake in Mexico. 80km length, 18km wide, elevation 1,524m. The lake and surrounding Sierra Madre mountains ensure warm temperatures year round and average 74 degrees F and sits at sea level (no humidity).  Three photos taken in the town of Lake Chapala and a photo of the view from the B&B in Ajijic.

Tacos, Tapas & Gardens

New tastes this past week…Tacos el Pastor (a dish developed in Central Mexico, based on shawarma spit-grilled meat) and a variety of sauces if you are brave enough to try from mild to light my fire that is sooooo…Hot!!!
Tapas from a new restaurant in town Sevilla Tapas, two dishes…Chicken Croquettes served with Manchengo cheese sauce and Mahi Mahi Sevillano fresh fish filet with a Mushroom and Cream sauce.
And the lovely gardens that surround the pool.

Seven days on the road and major highway construction from Henderson, Nevada to Mazatlan, Mexico and the total distance 4277 km from Port Angeles, Washington to Bucerias, Nayarit, Mexico.

There was a bonfire made from old pallets and we watched the full moon rising.
Here are some photos, the decorations were done by the fire fighters.
