Continuing Along the La Paz Boardwalk

The city of La Paz is a real charmer with much to see and photograph.  Even the shoreline has a character all its own.

I hinted on Monday that you would see a gigantic oyster shell and pearl.  This is just one of the many pieces of art that decorate the boardwalk.

Across the street from the boardwalk you’ll find brightly painted buildings.  Here is a restaurant that was still decorated for Día de Muertos, the Day of the Dead, which I described to you recently in my series on our stop this cruise into San Diego’s Old Town.

Across the street is also a good vantage point from which to photograph the boardwalk.

As we headed away from the bay and into town, Ursula and I also found some interesting mural work.

By the way, if you’re reading this and other material authored by me on The Destinary website, this post was not “Posted on (fill in the date) | By destinary” as they’ve been erroneously claiming; this material was in fact reposted.  The Destinary have also been claiming the right to do so, without links back to the original and without full attribution (“by RDoug” and a nonworking link is not proper attribution) with a rather bizarre interpretation of U.S. copyright law in which they claim I’m responsible for changing my RSS feed settings so that they cannot skim my material for commercial purposes.  That would make reading my blog less convenient for you, which I’m not willing to do.  As such, I’ll be running this little diatribe on all travel related posts until they cease and desist, along with this:

Final note:  Considering The Destinary is a site listed as owned by Sonia Bosquez-Platt of Indianapolis Tour & Travel, you may want to rethink doing business with either her or her company.
