Melissa & Dave - Adventures at Sea

Day 6 - Trip Over the Mountains to Mascota

Brunch was leftovers.  Melissa cooked up most of the remaining tuna and served it with a pineapple salsa.  Then we headed out over the mountains.  About a 2 hour drive over winding roads took us to Mascota.  Bob and Joyce had chosen to stay up in this mountain village for a few days before they will head back into Puerto Vallarta for New Years Eve fireworks.  It was a lovely, very clean and quaint place with lots of nice restaurants.  We had lunch at Café Napoles – a local joint that served both traditional Mexican and Italian.  Near as we could tell from the pictures of the family in Rome that decorated the walls, we suspect the family had some Italian origins.

After leaving Bob and Joyce, we headed back over the mountains before dark.  The road over the mountains is two lanes and curvy, and unlit.  So we wanted to be down into the flatlands before it got dark.  We stopped in Bucerias for a drink before heading back to the condo.  We made reservations along the way at Mezzoriorno – a restaurant we ate at when we visited in 2017.  Great food though we didn’t eat this time.  They put us at a great table in the bar where we could watch the sunset.  Great place for Dave to chill out after almost 5 hours of driving that required close attention.

When we got back to the condo, Melissa fixed a platter full of what we had in the fridge.  Yeah, even cold cuts around here are Yummy.
