More comprehensive view of cliff dive area as boats and spectators gather

Another shot as I climb down the stairs for a closer view of the cliffs

The diving supervisor (Dad?) watches as several divers climb the cliff (two are seen in this picture)

Five divers are here: two at the top and three on the face of the cliff.
I shudder as they free climb with no safety devices.

The first diver takes his plunge.
(Couldn't get out from behind the lamp because of the crowds.)

Two more divers on their way from even higher.  Note the shadow of the left diver on the cliff.

The final diver does a pike from the very top.

Back at the Fairmont Pierre Marques, musicians play while we eat lunch in the Terraza Restaurant.

Mary that evening, with our two favorite Fairmont Acapulco Princess waitresses: Maria and Gloria

A beautiful 180-yard par 3 hole at the Marques course the next morning

Herb Lindberg and Vickie McVey, a wonderful person (same hole)

Back for drinks that evening: Duane Mayfield, Larry and Michelle Owen (?)

Thatched beach umbrellas for locals, with Fairmont Princess buildings in the background.

Expanse of beach from the Fairmont Acapulco Princess toward the hill beyond which is Port Marques

The better restaurant at the Fairmont Acapulco Princess, viewed from the beach sand

Mary enters the flea market on the beach at the Fairmont Acapulco Princess.

Prominent sign inside the flea market building (I added the circle and arrow)
