We woke up the next morning and decided to head to town to find something to eat and do some exploring. On the way into town we walked down the Boardwalk (Malecón), which is bordered on one side by shops and restaurants and the other side by ocean. On the beach, there were around 10 of the most elaborate sand sculptures I'd ever seen.
The whimsical sea inspired high back chairs (below) are the work of Guadalajara native Alejandro Colunga. This installation made its debut on the Malecón in 1997. One chair is crowned by an octopus and another by what may be a seahorse. One of the original chairs surrendered to the forces of Hurricane Kenna and was replaced with a stunning replacement that appropriately pays homage to the strength of the sea. (source)
Not all the sculptures were bronze. This one was human.
Other sites around town included street fairs and vendors.
And cow chairs, of course.
And after all that exploring, it was time for another margarita!
And more margaritas...
And a few more margaritas.
