Trail's End

Sorry I didn't get these pictures up a bit sooner. Just too much stuff to do here in Puerto Vallarta so I have been kind of busy. But, the wait is over.

After our long hike we stopped by a little food and drink stand that was about a hundred yards from the pier and the more touristy places.

Journey's End

When we stopped for a quick beer at Los Animas someone called ahead to let the proprietor know we were coming so he managed to procure some food to prepare for us. Our selections were a bit limited though. He had four orders of shrimp, three red snappers, fish tacos (quantity unknown) and that was about it. He did, however, have beer and tequila and we quickly settled in.

The Settlers

Of course it didn't take Bar Man to get into action. I love a place where they just leave the bottle.

Just Pour Your Own

Bar Man And His Hat Getting Smashed

I certainly wasn't the only one getting who was ready to party after our hike.

This Gal Can Party

This gal was Bella whose other half is Tom, a member of the Breakfast Club, who foolishly left her unattended.

Another member of the Breakfast Club was Bill, Marcia's husband. And as you saw in the last blog, Marcia quickly got into action as well.

Bottoms Up

We all had a wonderful time and the beers and tequila did wonders for the aching muscles. We could worry about aching heads tomorrow.

All to soon it was headed back, and we certainly weren't going to go back the way we came. Instead we arranged for a boat to take us back to Boca de Tomatlan where we could catch a bus back to town.

Much More Fun Than Walking

All and all it was a wonderful day. I would be more than happy to do it again, but not for another year. I think my knees might just have recovered by then. They really should figure out how to install fittings in your knees like they have in cars so you can shoot in some grease once in awhile. Or, better yet, Silly Putty. Put that spring back in your step.
