A couple of years before this photo was taken I parked my Motorhome where they built the Office Building and connected free to the Marina power for 4 months. I kept the Marina Guards supplied with fresh fish cough right out of the Marina so they let me slide. My Trimaran Sailboat is setting in the background having some repairs done.


It was Soooo Sweet here in those days.

El Yate was in full swing in the 80's. Was a great place to dance and listen to the band. My next door neighbor was one of two owners. He died on Christmas eve in a car accident, coming home from Guaymas. That was in 1985 if my memory serves me well.

It is really cool to look at old photos and understand the the history.

That said, SC is great today. Never get why ppl always talk about the past like it was better than today. It wasn't in 95% of cases.

Lots in the Ranchitos were selling for $600 when I took my photo in 1998. My 1st time in SC was the early '90's. But I had a house in Mazatlan and a little farm in El Quelite starting in 1970. Back then Guaymas was just a Stinky place you had to drive through to get to Paradise.


In those days the Sardine Cannery was on Serdan and the bay and their waste emptied into the Bay. And, the untreated sewage from Guaymas also drained directly into the Bay. The Stench in Guaymas was so bad that on my way Driving to Mazatlan I had to soak a towel in water and cover my nose and mouth North of Guaymas and keep it on until South of Emplame.


Another thing, in the Olden Days, was that all of the Street vendors in all of Mexico cooked with Carbon (Charcoal) until it was outlawed in the '90's. And on Calm, no wind days that smoke hung heavy in the air,  in Guaymas that smoke co-mingled, in a bad way, with the other odors.

And if the carbon wasn't bad enough--the dump used to burn 24/7.

San Carlos falls into the 5%. San Carlos was better then, and for countless reasons!! Obviously, if you were not here, you would not know.

For us who were here in the 60s and 70s, we just know how it was and cherish those times. However, it doesn't stop me from loving it now, and looking towards its future as I prepare to buy an new place this week.

The good ole days were better. We actually had water all of the time. No traffic, and the seafood was plentiful and fresh. Garbage was picked up each week, and there were very few robberies. Everyone knew everyone, and the beaches were clean. Prices were a lot lower, and the life was simple. Your word meant something.

i am from arizona, born in phoenix and raised in tucson. i remember when there wasn't a million people in the whole state. now the metropolis's of phoenix have close to 5 million and tucson the "old pueblo" has 1 million.
my naturally pristine "old pueblo" tucson is a distant memory!
if you have a chance watch the movie "red river" with john wayne, walter brenan, it was filmed in 1948, around the back of the rincon's mountains and sonota!
i was about 17 years old in the pictures i posted here at algadones beach, it was the year after they made the movie "catch 22"!

good for you Frankie, that is probably the healthy way to look at things, but you know both of the current San Carlos Blogs/Forums are mostly filled with complaints. Water, trash, how tax monies are spent, crime, and on and on!! The blog/forum of the late 1970's and early 80's, was quite different matter....full of joy, fish stories (good) and invitations. Do you remember 4:00pm, EVERYDAY???
