We crossed into Mexico without incident at Tijuana after we finished up with our errands in San Diego. We ended up with a couple of new boards (6’8” fish for Paul and a 7’2” hybrid for Susan) to fill the Thule box along with a handful of other stuff that is easier to obtain north of the border. We stayed the night just south of Ensenada before trucking all the way to my favorite point break about 500 kms south. The surf was decent on arrival though it deteriorated rapidly and we weathered a day or two of bocce ball on the beach along with a few Pacifico Ballenas (1 litter beers) until it cleared up and the waves started breaking in our favor. Leaving the Pacific would have been a lot harder if my shoulders weren’t completely worn out from paddling, so we drove to the inside of the peninsula to do some snorkeling and fishing.
We stayed at a somewhat isolated free camp site on the Sea of Cortes for about a week. The snorkelling and fishing were very relaxing. Susie got a nice sunburn and Paul got to take the speargun out for a spin. Now we are at a cheap, cavernous hotel in La Paz with ferry tickets and vehicle importation for the mainland. The plan is to head up the coast for a bit more relaxing on the beach before heading over on the ferry just before Christmas.
Here are some photos from the last few weeks on beautiful Baja.
