Typical day. Up before sunrise, bathing suit on, launch kayak and go out to paddle with a whale shark that hangs around this area. Breakfast on the beach, swim and socialize until noon. Afternoon, hanging out, swimming, kayak sailing, siesta, happy hour and then maybe over to local restaurant for inexpensive but great meal. Campfire on the beach and then call an end to a tough day. Oh man, only two more days and we'll be heading North. I can see why many folks like to come down here and stay for several months.

There are a couple of other Escapes here and we've talked to both owners.

I'm thinking that I've got to find some bad things to say about Baja. Wouldn't want too many more people to find out how good it is.

Ron just curious have you noticed any dive shops or places to get tanks filled down there?
I have a feeling if you go down next winter you just might see one more Escape trailer

Cheers
Doug

Ron, maybe I missed this, but how far south did you go from the border?

I was just going to ask the same Question as Ruthe. How far down from the U.S. Border did you go? Looks like you've had a great trip! I am envious . Maybe next fall. We are planning on staying in So. Cal / AZ for the winter, Baja doe not look that much further.

Holding you to that post....Sooner is better. Already planning for winter of 2017. Still planning on picking up "Dog House" in late May and heading north.

Sad day today. Up watching the sunrise and "our" whale shark cruise by the trailer and then started heading North. But we know if you spend too much time in places like this you start taking it for granted. That's what we tell ourselves anyway.

Baja may not seem that far from SoCal but it's sort a world away. The roads are narrow, your average speed travelling is way lower and a distance in the US that you might knock off in a morning would be an all day drive down here.

We went as far South as Loreto. The really excellent areas are South of Mulege on the Sea of Cortez.

I didn't notice any dive shop signs but I'm sure there would be some in any the coastal cities.

You go south until the butter starts to melt.

Dammit, Ron, before you leave the Baja I really need you to set the timer on your camera, on a tripod behind the trailer facing the ocean, so we can see it and you out there in your kayak.

Never fear Myron, we've got so many photos we'll be putting our friends to sleep showing them all the photos and videos we have. I'll post a representative selection when I'm back home with good wi-fi.

Spent the night at an RV campground in Guerro Negro. What a shock from the peace and quiet of Coyote Beach. There was a caravan leaving this morning. Front and sweep pick-ups with flashing amber lights for 5 RV's Little overkill but I guess if it gets people down here who were reluctant to do it on their own then I guess it works for them.

Longish haul up the interior spine of Baja today. Not all that far in US miles but no gas along the way. We already know we can do it on a tank of gas and we have spare so no worries.
