Bienvenido, loyal reader. Please join Bruce and Mary as they check out this much-awaited jewel of Old Town, the new pier.
The new Muelle Los Muertos, Los Muertos Pier is finally done and here is the view of this impressive work of engineering from the vantage point of our usual spot on Playa Los Muertos.
According to our good friend Pancho, vendedor de sombrillas, umbrella salesperson, this project has been two years in the building.
And from the pier that is me yonder, in what Pancho calls ‘mi casa’.
Going through our photo files, this is the best pic I could find of the state of construction when we landed here last June.
This is our first visit to Los Muertos Pier, here we are at the water taxi dock. This ‘serpentine’ embedded stone effect is a theme decorating the Malecon and many sidewalks throughout the city.
These folks are headed to Yelapa, a fishing village only accessible by boat.
The mast is the architectural centerpiece of this beautiful structure.
It takes a lot to support that sucker!
This gentleman is taking a break on the bench that rings the circular walkway. BTW: Local policia tell us that there is absolutely no food or beverage allowed on the pier… and no diving! But we have seen plenty of dock divers from our beach vantage, so that rule is getting busted regularly.
We’re exiting the pier and if we were to keep on going, climbing the stairs up and down the hill, we’d be home!
We’re old and we don’t get out much at night, but Pancho told us that we have to see Muelle Los Muertos lit up and boy, was he right.
The sophisticated lighting system seamlessly merges from color to color.
Not a bad place for an evening bite and beers.
And we’ll wrap it up with my favorite color, green.
For those of you who would like to see some fabulous professional pix of the Muelle Los Muertos at twilight, please click here.
Thanks for visiting, gentle reader. As you can see, the new pier has really lit up an already electric Old Town beach scene. Bruce and Mary are in serious danger of having too much fun here, let’s hope they survive! Hasta proxima Domingo!
