Apr 28, 2009 - Cruise Vacation

Well, we are supposed to be leaving on Sunday, May 3rd to go on a cruise that starts in San Diego, goes to Catalina Island and then to Ensenada, Mexico for Cinco De Mayo. At this point Carnival Cruises is not canceling the Ensenada stop, so we are not sure what we are going to do. Hopefully it all turns out well.

Feb 26, 2009 - Ensenada

Today was a great day! The temperature was a bit on the low side - in the sixties, with a bit of wind, but we had a great breakfast at the hotel attached to this campground/resort. After breakfast, we were invited to view a private collection of artifacts from Mexican history. The man who owns the campground/hotel/resort gave us the tour. Benjamin is passionate about his countries past, and it shows in his tour. He began collecting artifacts in his 20's (he now appears to be in his eighties), and finally constructed his own museum on the...

Feb 25, 2009 - Travel to Ensenada

The last four days have been basically travel. From Mulege to Guerrero Negro, from there to Catavina, and then to Colonia Vincente Guerrero. The last day was to Ensenada, where we will spend three nights, then back to the states. Same old same old as far as the roads are concerned. Mostly very narrow two lane, with the odd bit of four lane (very odd), and some wider two lane. The road is being upgraded, but very little really big road building equipment means that it will be a fair while - measured in years - til the whole road is finished....

Oct 5, 2008 - We are in Mexico

Viva Mexico! We are in country – no more fears, no more trepidation, no more cell phone….. This past week has been a mixed bag of issues, solutions, yet to be solved concerns and emotions. Gray and I installed the new salt water pump to cool the engine – you know the one that has been leaking since Bodega Bay 2 months ago. We started the engine and everything appeared to be fine. We also changed the pitch on the propeller to give us more speed while underway. We spent Monday with Gray & Fatima looking around San Diego going to Point Loma...

Sep 20, 2008 - Pizza in Ensenada

Chris & Anne Not a bad travel day today. This is our last nite in Mexico and we are camped about 70km from the US Mexican border. We will be crossing at Tecate tomorrow, and hope to do a little wine tasting on the way to the border. We made the drive from San Quintin to Ensenada, then stopped at Walmart in Ensenada for lunch and some supplies shopping. The gals hopped a cab and went to the market to buy some last minute souveniers, (how many times in this blog have the gals gone to get last minute something…??) Kevin, you would be proud, I...

Sep 1, 2008 - Mexico at last.....

Chris & Anne Now this is what I call a travel day…we started the day out at La Pacifica RV park in San Diego where we have been for the last 2 nites….got up and first off, Jack and I went to the internet lounge to update email and the blog…. Anne and Norma went shopping while Jack and I prepared the rigs for the days drive into Mexico. It seemed like the gals were gone for a long time, almost an hour and you could see the store from the campsite, so just as Jack and I were about to go searching they pulled in with stories of how busy the...

Mar 18, 2008 - La Bufadora and Ensenada Fish Market

As our Mexican adventure wound down, the group travelled back through Vicente Guerrero where Nick & Sharon left us so they could travel faster back up to Oregon. We visited the sand dollar beach again. It had been raining. We had rain here on the way down, but our beach visit was successful. Next stop was Ensenada, where we headed over to see La Bufadora, a blow-hole in the rock cliff that shoots water and sea spray into the air and all over laughing tourists from the overlook. Timing is everything and La Bufadora is best when seas are...

Our Adventure

Feb 24, 2008 - Ensenada

We spent the next two nights in Ensanada, a tourist town catering to cruise ships, where we played tourist and rested after two days of hard riding. Ensanada has a well-developed tourist industry and several nice motels. We took and short ride to the top a very steep hill where there are expensive homes and a great scenic lookout over the city. We also met up with another group of riders from Calgary who had shipped their bikes down with ours. Unfortunately, one of them had hurt his ribs in a fall and was having to cut his trip short.

Jan 29, 2008 - Ensenada

Good day yesterday. We had lunch at KC's café which was absolutely fantastic. Then we went shopping and bought a Mexican rug, which is now in our bedroom, and a nodding chicken!!! I'll take a picture for you...honestly it is more tasteful than it sounds and lots of people have them in San Felipe. It is made from wrought iron and a rock!!! The only thing we didn't manage to get is a painting but we will have a look while we are here - there is a Mexican art and craft shop at the resort so we might get lucky there. We got up early today -...

Jan 19, 2008 - Mexico Meanderings Begin in Ensenada

Our approach to Mexico from Pio Pico took us on a curving road that wound through a rock slide area surrounded by folded mountains strewn with huge smoothed boulders like a slag pile discarded by giants. The rounded hills - bare except for rocks - seemed hostile and thirsty. Border patrol vehicles and checkpoints along the road reminded us that we were at the edge of controversy. We had avoided Tijuana and chose Tecate as our point of entry because, from what we had heard, Tijuana is equally inhospitable these days. What an amazing entrance...

Jan 18, 2008 - San Diego to Ensenada, Baja, Mexico

We were certainly ready for a fresh start to our trip and everything went smoothly today. Once we escaped San Diego via the freeways this morning, we found ourselves on highway 94 heading to Tecate. This is a wonderful winding, scenic two lane highway with light traffic (as compared to the freeways). At Tecate we had no trouble crossing into Mexico. In fact we just drove on through since there wasn't even a stop sign at the border. Tecate was a little chaotic and somehow we started heading out of town towards Tijuana in stead of Ensenada....

Jan 11, 2008 - Ensenada, Mexico

In Ensenada we basically did not get off the ship. We have been to Ensenada many times. Susan actually got off the ship to buy a small bottle of wine from a store on the dock. We spent the entire day doing..... yes, eating and reading. We watched the crew do a boat drill. On this one, they actually lowered every boat and drove them around the harbor. The pier is located a long walk away from downtown. They had shuttle buses to take you into town, but we decided to stay aboard.
