The answer to yesterday’s question is Barra de Navidad, in the Mexican state of Jalisco, halfway between Puerto Vallarta and Lázaro Cárdenas.  From a post from just over a year ago, see a map here. Yes, Roger, the baker’s boat with an English language sign was a “red herring,” or a donut among croissants.  It turns out the baker is originally from Montreal, so maybe a sign on the back says boulangerie francaise.  His place in town is called El Horno Frances, and you can befriend it here.  If you want to read more about this creative baker transplanted to a beautiful place, click here.

Last time I used this title was more than a decade ago here.  The newest lube tanker in the sixth boro is Lesney Byrd, working here already for almost two years.

Here’s a closer-up of the pump meters.

Today was spring-like in the harbor, as you can see from the haze surrounding the island.

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who had to be convinced to come inside at all this sunny, balmy day, therefore posting a bit late.

Maybe the sixth boro needs a French bakery boat….
