Dia de la Revolucion — Mexico Independence Day

Mexico’s Revolution Day (Dia de la Revolucion) is a national public holiday that celebrates a 10-year revolution that began in 1910 to end the struggle against dictator José de la Cruz Porfirio Diaz Mori.

Our town celebrates with a grand parade comprised mostly of the children — school groups, dance groups, sports groups — with a few cowboys and their horses thrown in. After all this isn’t just a beach town. It’s also ranch country.

Here are some little revolutionaries.

More revolutionaries.


















Around the corner and down the street

in small town Mexico, we find little delights.

Walking home from the beach, we often see people out for a trail ride. The horses live just off main street a few blocks away.


Off for dinner in the next town (a few minute drive away) we find the main street blocked off for the Spring parade, the floats all manned by the kindergarten classes of the area.



Then we see a charming painted wall on a street leading to the beach. I want to live in one of these houses, if only they were real.
