Some photos from Mazatlan. When we get the video of the canopy tour, I'll put some streaming video up as well as some static shots.

Arriving in Mazatlan, the sun isn't quite up yet
Sunrise over Mazatlan
The Magic, docked at Mazatlan
The local fish market. This is fresh off the boat.
Catching a taxi.
The wranglers carefully select the horse for each person, based on their age and experience.
Riding on the beach in Mazatlan. This side of the island is owned by 80+ families
The smallest of the kids were led by one of the guides.
Curt and Susie on the beach, along with Prieto (almost black) and Secundo.
Lonche!
Victor's is not a fancy place, but the food can't be beat!
A rustic place to eat, the food is cooked in the back over a wood fired stove. Randi called ahead and told them we were vegetarians. They prepared cheese quesadilla's, vegetables (cooked to perfection), arroz (rice) and frijoles (beans). They don't normally fix frijole's, but did so just for us. They also make a great cooked salsa and pico de galla!
After lunch, Victor brought out a piñata and let the kids take a swing. The piñata was filled with confetti, the actual candies were separately bagged, so they wouldn't get sand in them.
The Magic docked at Mazatlan. Some of the Mexican Naval ships are in the foreground. The small cruise ship berthed aft of TR01 failed it's inspection and is not allowed to sail. Nobody knows quite what it's fate will be.
Thanks to those who sent me e-mail identifying the birds. This is a frigate bird, which were very common.
A fishing boat makes it way into harbor.
