After lunch we walked a few blocks to find the Mercado Municipal (City Market). This is looking at the Mercado building across a busy intersection.
Inside the market we found tightly packed vendors with all kinds of wares. It reminded me a little bit of the Mesa Market that we visited in Mesa, Arizona last winter, only with a distinctly Mexican cultural feel.
Here JoAnn and Doug pass a fruit and cheese vendor.
We then set off down the street, in search of more interesting sights. This was an interesting building, I couldn't resist this picture. Turns out it is an old, closed, bank.
Another couple of blocks down the street we spotted the Iglesia de San Fernando (San Fernando Church). This little square is on the side of the church.
Across the street is another square, where we can see the front of the church. You might be able to see the dragon shapes in the light post. JoAnn, Doug and Jim are standing in the square in front of the church.
My Tres Amigos, JoAnn, Doug, and Jim
We found the Plaza Tres Presidentes. Three Mexican Presidents came from Guaymas. This plaza must be a popular place for rallies and such. It is big and very empty. I can just imagine thousands of people gathered here for speeches or celebrations, etc.
Back towards the harbor and our car, we found this interesting statue of a fisherman. Since I don't read Spanish, I'm not sure of the story, but it is a very interesting statue.
It was siesta time then, so we headed back to the car and piled in for the short drive back to San Carlos. Back at home, we settled in for some reading and relaxation.
Another beautiful day!
