Today is our sixth day in Mexico. We have been without internet for the previous four days. No internet or cell service but wonderous vistas, magnificent coastline, frolicking dolphins, kind and helpful people and the blessing of safe travels. Here are our six days in pictures.
Day 1: We entered Mexico through the Calexico-Mexicali border station. 3 hours later we arrived at the town of San Felipe,right on the Sea of Cortez. We spent the day walking around this sleepy little tourist town and spent the night safely in Winnie. It’s so nice having our home on wheels, we can just park and go to sleep.
Day 2: The next morning we headed out for the tiny town of Puertecitos. Really it’s just a little fishing village. We found a lovely spot in a fishing camp,right on the beach. We woke up to the fishermen launching their boats and the sound of lively music.
Day 3: From Puertecitos we wanted to head south traveling along the Pacific. Little did we know that we would encounter the worst detour ever! 30 kilometers of rutted, rocky, dusty dirt road! Our Minnie Winnie is not made for this kind of driving but Kathy slowly and carefully guided her along. It took 3 hours to go 30 kilometers (20 miles) but we made it! Instead of heading to the Pacific, as planned, we decided to rest in the town of Bahia de los Angeles, still on the Sea of Cortez side. We made the right choice!
Day 4: Bahia de los Angeles was paradise! We found a campground right on the beach. We spent our days walking, reading and watching dolphins and pelicans.
Day 5: I ended up with a little cold and I can’t imagine a better place to be sick then parked in Winnie, looking out at the beautiful sea.
Day 6: (Today) We left idyllic Bahia de los Angeles for a beautiful drive down Mexico Highway 1. We are now on the Pacific Ocean side and will be spending a couple of weeks here in Guerrero Negro. Lots to see and do here and the town has pretty good internet and cell service. We had our first great Mexican meal at the Las Cazuelas Restorante. There will be a whale festival here soon. Tomorrow we are going to find a spot on the beach, not sure if we will have service there. BOLT will definitely keep you posted as often as we can…and you know we love hearing from you!
