La Manga | San Carlos | Sonora | Mexico

 
 
La Manga is a small fishing village just outside of San Carlos, Mexico. They fish from small boats, no huge fishing vessels in this neighborhood. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
There are quite a few restaurants in the village,  and of course, they have mostly seafood. 

     
 
 

 
Numerous piles of fishing nets were on the beach.

  
 

 
Of course, the sea birds were swarming all over, hoping to catch a stray fish.
 



There is nothing fancy about this area, there are about 3 of these windmills used to pump water.


 
Laundry day starts early in the morning.  This batch was on the fence before 10 AM. 
 


 
They have their own branch of Alcoholics Anonymous, and it looks like it just had a paint job.
 

I met this man outside a little store.  He posed for a picture and then indicated that I could have a ride on the horse if I wanted.  I declined, but thanked him and shook his hand, then he took off down the road. 



These shark jaws, complete with teeth are hanging outside the little store in the photo above.

 
Old RVs and trailers of all types come here as homes for some of the residents.
 

I'm not sure why this is here, although someone may have lived in it at one time.  It has been parked here for a while, judging by the look of the tires on the trailer.


This is one of the more interesting homes in the area, I think I'm intrigued by the license plates.


As I was leaving the area, I passed this gate.  I know they are building either condos or homes down that road.  The entire road to La Manga is lined on the sea side with condos and fancy homes.   I'm wondering how long before the residents of this little community are displaced by "progress".
