Dec 29, 2013 - San Felipe

Monday, December 23, 2013 We stopped at the Jumal post office and picked up our mail then headed for Mexico. We had an easy crossing at Tecate (where they brew the bear) then took MX2D toll road ($18) to Mexicali. It was an interesting ride climbing to about 1300 Meters with a long winding hill back down. It was a mountain of huge rocks much like Joshua Tree or Alabama Hills. Then south to San Felipe, stopping a couple of times at the military check points so they could look in the camper. When we got to Ron’s at about 5 PM we went with him...

Jan 29, 2013 - Sun, Sand & Hair, Ospreys ??

We saw another sunrise, there are great ones every morning when the skies are clear. The sun sets behind the mountains, so we don't see any sunset behind us. Today, with camera in hand we walked out on the low tide sand bars, 307 yards, Bushnell told us. The water is usually about 6-7 feet deep there when the tide is in, its a wild guess. Then into town the get a Haircut for Patricia. While there i wandered on second street and the Malecon taking photos and talking to all the vender's. We then went to fill our 5 gals of Agua for 8...

Jan 21 - We were invited over to one of the permanent(americans) residences, for happy hour and Barbeque'd Turkey dinner, with all the trimmings and Deserts, WOW! Then one fellow, used his tablet to view the stars. Then he brought out his telescope, so there we were, all taking turns looking at the planet Jupiter which was just to the right of the moon.

Then the ocean birds, Pelicans, seagulls, sandpipers, Herons & pigeons fly buy our bay window(windshield) all day long! The tide goes out and miraculously it comes back in, HUH! I forgot about that. Because the beach is so flat, the tide goes out about 400 yards.

I was a bit surprised by the condition of the towns economy, it was greatly affected by the US crash. Atypical of mexican towns, poor...

We made it to Mexico! We are in a town called San Felipe and managed to find an awesome RV park with double-decker patios overlooking the ocean! Its awesome. The food here is great, more like the Mexican food we were used to while living in California. We went to a craft show, which was nice. We bought shrimp at the malecon and made spicy shrimp salad. We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Meh-hi-co!! Well this bit of the holiday certainly wasn't planned! The random things often turn out to be the best though and this certainly was! We set off for mexico on Saturday 29th, an early start 6AM taking the 'trolley/tram' to San Ysom??????????
