Miscellaneous photos from the Isla

As my camera is in for medical repairs as of noon today, I have no choice but to share some photos I took mid December.  I had posted back then some photos taken in the colonia and now these are some candid photos taken on the rest of the Isla.

Our main grocery store.

One of my favorite colors.

Interesting fence.  The pink building in behind is the new local gym.

No limit as to what you can carry on your bike.

All torn up for ???  Nothing has changed since we got here mid November.  This road is the link between the main road to the Isla and what you might call ‘Main Street”.  Still a major mess, we have no reason as to the why but I suspect it is sewer related.

An old style rustic fence and a newer rustic fence.  I like the newer one on the left.

Local construction.  A second level is being added to the structure on the left, similar to the brick addition in the middle of the photo.

I have to say that the Isla is unique.

      I hate to tell you but they no longer sell beer. Each type of beer needs a special license and it was getting too expensive so they stopped. There are only a few places here on the Isla that you can get cerveza these days.

    Good day to you miss Contessa, what lovely pictures you have. Sorry that your camera is in the hospital I guess all that salt air plays a big part on that.
