The Other Soggy Peso

No, I'm not posting about the Soggy Peso on Isla Mujeres.  There's actually another Soggy Peso in San Carlos on the other side of Mexico!

After we booked a month at Playa Blanca on Playa Algodones in San Carlos, I found out the other Soggy Peso was just a short walk away from the condo.  I'd actually liked the San Carlos Soggy Peso long ago on Facebook (maybe by mistake).

The day after we arrived, we decided to stroll down the beach and check out the other Soggy!  We found a fun palapa bar with great views of the water and sunset, good food, and live music.

Our first outing, we split an order of shrimp ceviche and a huge bowl of guacamole.  The grand total for the ceviche, guac, drinks, and 20% tip was 300 pesos, which converts to $16 U.S.

By the way, that tall building in the background is the condominium resort where we're staying -- Playa Blanca.  They have smoking hot deals for snowbirds in the winter season, and we often run into our new neighbors from Canada and the U.S. down the beach at the Soggy Peso.

Craig and I may have to buy Soggy Peso t-shirts here in San Carlos to confuse our friends on Isla Mujeres.

Once the sun sets, we love walking down the beach towards our home for the month watching the colors progress in the sky.

A few nights ago we just happened to run across a mariachi photo shoot on the way home. 
I love the twilight colors we see around the bay on our evening stumbles back down the beach. 
Just to update, Craig and his partner won a gold medal in the men's doubles 4.5 Sombrero Showdown.  He's a happy camper! 
I, on the other hand, wasn't quite as fortunate.  I got stitches after trying to walk through the glass sliding door here at the condo.  Not to worry!  The wonderful management and staff here took great care of me.  Jorge accompanied us to the Rescate (basically the local emergency medical services here in San Carlos) to serve as our translator.  After finding out I needed to go to the emergency room in Guaymas to have my face stitched, Sofia at the front desk called a doctor and arranged for her to meet us at her clinic here in San Carlos so I wouldn't have to spend hours waiting.  A week later, the stitches are out and my face looks almost untouched.  Any scar I end up with will be hidden by my eyebrow.  So I'm a lucky girl too!
Stay tuned!
