missing pictures

Like I said...easily entertained!


This was the litte sand penninsula we went for a long hike on during the Tsunami warning. No, we didn't know about the warning. This picture was taken from way up in a lighthouse, by my husband.

Kind of a goofy expression but this was the last picture of the post "A Beautiful Day in Bahia" . Our day ended with making seafood gluttons of our selves while sitting in a tiny restaurant in the beach. Roman loves seafood!


I guess I need to stick to posts with fewer pictures...I keep loosing them somewhere out in cyberspace. oops

Early morning Kayaking

A Beautiful Day at Bahia

Image
Saturday morning we woke up to a gorgeous warm windless day in Bahia de Los Angeles. We only have one full day here so we made the most of it. The day began with kayaking at 7 am when the schools of dolphins were passing by. We didn't actually get out far enough to get close to any. I'll put the kayaking pictures on another post.



The kids did a LOT of treasure hunting along the beach. I've never been to a beach that has so many shells. In fact, the beach is largely made up of shells.
We spent time wading in the sea. Because we've been warned about sting rays we made sure to hot venture out too far. The kids learned to shuffle their feet and scare any away that might be hiding in the sand. We didn't see one.
Silas was convinced he had a fish in his pants. Turns out it was just the tag from his shorts that was tickling him.
We went into town and found the Museum. It was a well put together exhibit of marine life and Baja history. The museum is ru…

Silas' favorite play spot

Image
Right outside our hotels little restaurant is Silas' favorite place to play.
Which was fairly convenient while we sit in those chairs behind him and wait for our seafood.
McDonald's play land has nothing on an old surf board sticking out of the sand.


Los Vientos

Image
After looking around the tiny fishing town at Bahia de Los Angeles yesterday we ventured a couple miles out of town and found this secluded little resort. We managed to get a really good deal on two rooms for two nights (actually nearly half of what was advertised). Our friends got the "honeymoon" suite. We have a little cottage style room with one bedroom (with a queen size bed) and two more single beds out in the main area. Silas slept well on the couch last night. It's cute and much bigger than our trailer! The amenities are pretty basic but its a very nice little resort. The view is spectacular and I think we were the only ones here last night. When we arrived yesterday it was REALLY windy and cool. I thought "Los Vientos" (The Winds) was very appropriately named. This morning, however, we woke up to a gorgeous day. Much warmer and very little wind.



The land that you can see across the water isn't main land Mexico , its many small islands…

Road Trip to Bahia de Los Angeles

Image
This morning we packed up our car and ventured about 5 hours further south down the peninsula of Baja California. I've never seen the Baja so green! It's gorgeous right now. A few months ago green wasn't a color that naturally occurred in nature. Green was a very rare novelty among the shades of grey, browns and reds that typically make up the landscape.
We have never ventured much further than San Quintin. Destination Bahia de Los Angeles.
Green hills aren't the only evidence of heavy rains this winter. This is just one of the many bridges that were washed out recently.




The scenery doesn't get dull with so many unique looking plants, terrain and cactus along the way.


We stopped for a little "rest stop". Mexican rest stops offer only the finest facilities. After miles of nothing but very low scrub brush and narrow cactus the privacy giant boulders offered looked fairly appealing. We all took our turn using the facilities and explored our surr…
