Peaceful but chilly days in Barra

Been getting lots of fog from the cold ocean for the last few weeks. Very cool nights in the low 60's. Not many people in town but it's only a week after Semana Santa when all of Mexico hits the beach.

I was waiting for Pollo Feliz to get some chicken dinner ready yesterday so thought I'd spend some time in Barra. Had my IPhone with me and snapped these quick ones.

We had two earthquakes today located very close to Barra/Melaque. The first was a 4.9 and second a 4.5. These were close enough to hear them and the first sounded like a Semi going by. We hope these small quakes are preventing the "big one".
