This is a great campground as the wind blows just enough to keep the bugs away and the sun shines every day.  There are 2 campgrounds here, both owned by the same person [King David].  That is what he is called and I think he likes it.  LOL He is really good at keep everything going and checks on everyone every day.  I do not think that we have been in a more friendly campground.  When we first got here everyone came over and introduced then selves and invited us to happy hour.  That is at 4 every day on the beach.   If you look it up on google earth it is 23 degrees 11min 09.61 sec N  and 106 degrees 24 min 04.46 sec W.  We are camped in the 3rd row about in the middle.  And would you believe that Evelyn came over to meet us and after we talked a bit she asked us if we were Bill and Bonnie. What a surprise, that is the first time anyone has asked us that. She read on Chris and Juan's blog that we were headed this way.

We found this park by asking on RV.net which is the best park in Mazatlan to stay at? Tres Amigos was the answer. He said that the only drawback was a very rough, unimproved eight mile stretch of road from the highway. He suggested that we just crack a beer when we turn on the road and take it slow. That is what we did, but it took three beers to get to the end of the road. It was all worth it.

We went into the city of Mazatlan the other day, with Jack and Janice, they showed us how to use the bus system, it is fun to ride the buses with the Mexican people.  We forgot the camera, we are going again Monday and will up date the pics then.

They meter the elect. here so the solar panels are working great.  We plug in at night just because, we have only used 24 kilowatts in 8 days.  They charge $.16 a kilowatt, so that would be 3.84 so far.

 There is also a veggie truck that comes around every day, we really like that and manage to purchase something every day. He also brings fresh bakery rolls and eggs.

Across the road about 200 yards from the gate is a beautiful botanical garden. A company from Durango is in the process of developing it, they have a large plan that will take 20 years to complete, with houses, condos, a golf course, etc. They have been working on it for three years now and it is starting to look very beautiful. It is not formally open, but the gardeners let us come in and look around, we took a lot of pictures some of which we have shared here.

There are a lot of other things we like about this park, so if you would like to know something just ask.
