May 1, 2017 - San Diego to Tijuana - PHOTOS TO BE ADDED

We were up early to shower, dress, pack and head out the door with Erica as she is dropping us at the trolley station to travel to Mexico. We said goodbye to Kevin and Kona and hit the road. The highways into the city were pretty busy however no worse than home in the direction we were travelling. Erica dropped us near the Civic Centre station and with instructions to make sure we messaged them to let them know we'd arrived at our destination. As we were quite early, couldn't book into our accommodation until 2:30 and the journey to Mexico...

Mar 27, 2017 - Cross the border into Mexico

3/27 The first day crossing the border went easy although we experienced our first time having Red fully X-rayed! It was green green green all the way and including Catavinia where we stayed the first night. Bon found the driving rather easy so 300 miles was not a push. With fewer tourists going in our direction...actually only met one at our overnite in Catavinia going as far as Loreto.

Apr 3, 2016 - March 2016

March 2016 --update Another busy month for us as we participated in our usual activities and have started the process of finishing up for the season: Vic calling card bingo on Sunday evenings. Helping several people with their last minute projects. Showing “Saturday night at the movies” in the cul-de-sac—daylight savings time has pushed the movie time to 7:30pm (almost past bedtime!) but the weather is so good we don’t even need jackets. Sandy continuing with the Communication Committee and Board meetings, wrapping things up. Playing Hand &...

Mar 15, 2016 - Ensenada, Baja, Mexico

In Ensenada we had a nice campground. While there we took a bus tour of Ensenada and went out to the blow hole for viewing, lunch and shoping. We got to spend some time in the tourist area and visit such places as Husoongs. The tour of the "Casino" was very nice. It was a first for us, even though we had been there about a dozen times. We had a very nice goodbye Mexico dinner. And the before dinner drinks were two for the price of one. If you ordered a beer and your wife ordered a beer, you each got two beers.

Mar 12, 2016 - Bahia de los Angeles, Baja, Mexico

Trip is now more than half over and we are headed north again. We stopped on the Sea of Cortez at the city of Bahia de los Angeles. We dry camped on the beach. We were surpised with some 15 amp power (no breakers so who know what they could draw). Most of decided to go out on boats and do some touring of the many islands for bird watching. It turner out to be Fin Whale watching. We saw many Fin Whales up close feeding. Unlike the Gray Whales, these guys are interesting in feeding and not human contact. But they didn't shy away either. Fin...

Mar 8, 2016 - Catavina,Baja, Mexico

This is our first full day in Mexico. The drive was quite nice, and the sun was wonderful. We all traveled caravan style as it is much better for safety. It is save in Mexico, but even safer with traveling with others. And it makes my job as tailgunner much easier. It Catavina we stayed in RV park that is dry camping only. Again we had the whole place to ourselves. Everybody spread out, but Mark and myself cirlced the wagons to form a windbreak. The wind was light. We prepared our great group meal of Walking Tacos. Everybody thought they...

Mar 7, 2016 - Vicente Guerrero, Baja, Mexico

Our first travel day we drove from Chula Vista to Vicente Guerro. This travel journal program plotted the location of Vicente Guerro way further inland, it should have been on the Pacific Ocean. It is the day we cross the border into Mexico. At the border we have to get our visas stamped. Fantasy did all the work and provided the visas and that was a big blessing. On our first trip to Mexico we had to do all this ourselves and it was very nerve wracking since the language barrier was great. This time, all we had to do was park, get out, go...

May 15, 2015 - Ensenada

Ensenada is generally not a top tier cruise ship stop, although many cruises end up here because of the Jones Act. Since the early 1900’s, this American law designed to protect the manufacturers of American ships states that foreign ships cannot embark passengers in an American port without going to a foreign port first. Thus, ships that voyage from Los Angeles to Hawaii, have to stop somewhere else before returning to LA. Since Ensenada is only ninety miles from San Diego, it’s a logical stopping off point. The town really blossomed during...

Mar 2, 2014 - Return to Ensenada

We enjoyed watching the whales at Guerrero Negro. There is a big bay where the mothers like to use to have their young. The water is warmer and saltier than the Pacific Ocean. It was especially fun to see mother and child swimming together. On Thursday the 27th, we moved on north and we once again crossed the Baja Peninsula to a beautiful bay on the Sea of Cortez. We camped there on the beach at Bahia de Los Angeles. Like so many of the villages on the Baja it is suffering on hard times. It appears that at some time in the past, tourism was...

Feb 17, 2014 - Going on down to los algodonas, mexico

Feb 17 - went to Los Algodonos, MX. We parked the car and Walked through the border, the first thing we saw was the purple building, the main pharmacy, where everyone go's. We just wondered all over the place, including the back alley vender's. We picked up a few memento's, and found some Hand cream($3.25 per tube) that is not available in USA or Canada. We had a Mexican breakfast, the eggs were fantastic for about $4. We continued on kibitzing with the vender's. Pat got a manicure, while i had a beer and enjoying live singing duo. We...

Feb 14, 2014 - Happy Valentine's Day!

We hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day. Jerry and I spent most of the day back in Algodones, Mexico. This time we went just for fun, no appointments for glasses etc. We had shrimp tacos for lunch at one of the restaurants recommended by a friend, they were delicious. We shopped all over the town today, we almost bought a wooden carved moose to put on the patio until we tried to figure where to store during travel days. You learn fast when traveling by RV that space is hard to come by, I would have to take something else out, so I...

Feb 13, 2014 - Algodones Mexico

We went back to Mexico again today. I got my teeth cleaned for $25 and Jerry got his glasses for $130, the same pair of glasses at Walmart were $300. He even got the flexible frames that do not break if you sit on them, or drop them etc. We also made our appointments very late in the afternoon around 3:00 P.M. We realized if you leave around 4 or 5, the lines are fast and easy. We only had about ten people ahead of us. We are going back tomorrow for Valentine's Day, just for fun. :-) We will also be moving to Yuma or Quartzsite, Arizona...
