Feb 26, 2014 - Guerrero Negro

We spent 2 days and 3 nights in La Paz. It is a large city with over 300,000 in the community. It sits on a large bay on the Sea of Cortez. On the city tour the first day, we visited Cathedral de La Paz, Museo Regional de Antropologia e Historia, Ibarra's Pottery, and the public market. We bought some small nice Mexican Pottery at Ibarras and became more aware of the history of the Baja at the Museum. Day two we walked the Malacom (board walk) that stretched a couple miles along the bay. Along with being a well keep beachfront, there were...

Feb 18, 2014 - La Paz

Today marked the halfway point of our Baja trip. We traveled from Cabo San Lucas to La Paz on HW 19 on a good 4 lane freeway. From here back to the border we will follow Mexico 1, a good but 2 lane narrow road; the same route we came down on but now staying at different villages and campgrounds. It is the one and only highway. It should be fun. We did find many ways to enjoy Cabo San Lucas. As a group we visited one of the glass factories and watch them blow several things - a vase, pitcher, then a turtle with a hat & bottle. They had some...

Feb 17, 2014 - Cabo San Lucas

We are in Cabo San Lucas. This is as far south as you can go on the Baja Peninsula. To go farther south we would have go by boat and if we went straight south the first land we would come to would be Antarctica, so guess we will just head home next. We had a nice time in Los Barilles. We were not right on the beach but close enough to see the water. It was fun walking down to the beach and watching kite boarders and windsurfers. It makes one want to be at least 30 years younger but, then we would have to be working. Maureen, a friend from...

Feb 14, 2014 - Playa Tecolote

The trip from Escondido to Playa Tecolote was a long (236 mi) desolate, flat road with few villages with nothing to see except dry desert. Keeping track of the rigs in front and in back, relieves some of the boredom and then listening to books on tapes, also helps. We spent two nights dry camping on a long lovely beach - Playa Tecolote, The beach is about 20 miles Northeast of La Paz. It was warm, the sun was shining. and it was enjoyable. The wind blew most of the time but not hard enough to make it uncomfortable. While we were at...

Feb 9, 2014 - Loreto

The Baja is divided into two states, Baja California & Baja California Sur ( South). As we crossed the Baja Peninsula from the Pacific to the Sea of Cortez and descended off the high desert down to the Sea of Cortez and Baja Sur we visited three interesting villages - Santa Rosalia, a onetime French copper mining village, Mulege, a fishing and farm village with an old prison, narrow streets(we had to fold in our side mirrors to navigate the streets), and quaint mission-style buildings. This is the first place we felt we had left winter...

Feb 4, 2014 - Cabo San Lucas

We arrived in Cabo San Lucas this morning around 7:00 A.M. We had to use the tenders to get ashore this time. Once ashore, we met with out tour group and went on a very nice boat to see the Arch and Lover’s Beach. After the boat tour we went on a bus tour of Cabo San Lucas. After the bus tour we spent time shopping and having lunch at Senor Frog’s. This is a most unusual restaurant, one guy was celebrating his birthday, they gave him all the free beers he could drink. They had a huge hose at the top of the deck on the second floor of the...

Feb 2, 2014 - Super Bowl at Sea

We had a very full and fun day at sea. After we shopped till we dropped in Ensenada, we had the largest super bowl party we have ever attended. They have a huge movie screen on deck 14 where they showed the game. People were in the pool swimming while watching, some were in the Jacuzzi, others were all over the two viewing decks watching in lawn chairs. Jerry and I watched the first half, then the wind picked up and we went inside. They had the best super bowl party we have ever been to. They served chicken wings, BBQ, hot dogs, burgers,...

Jan 29, 2014 - Bonus Edition

Today we have a special treat for all you avid readers, a Bonus Edition if you will. I thought the attached was too classic, too reflective of Mexico, to not share. By way of introduction, the author is Bill Bell, a fellow I have played golf with once or twice, but I’m sure he doesn’t even know my name. Bill is a retired political columnist for the Vancouver Sun newspaper (I think). He and his wife Dorothy (Dot) live down here in Mexico pretty much full time. They supplement their pensions by producing an online newspaper...

They're At It Again!

Nov 26, 2013 - First day in Mexico - sun, fun and exercise!

26 NOV 13 – Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Day 5. Today, we visited Mexico for the first time. With a late morning arrival (11:00), we had plenty of time to watch as the Star made her way slowly down the last few kilometres of the Baja California coast and turned into the bay in front of Cabo San Lucas. This port does not have a dock of sufficient size to berth large cruise ships, so we anchored a little way off and were to be tendered ashore in the Star’s own lifeboats. As we had an early private tour booking, we wanted to disembark as early as...

Mar 24, 2013 - Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

March 24, 2013 Cabo San Lucas, Mexico We are disappointed that we only have a few hours at this port of call. We arrived at 7 am and sail at about 2 pm. This is a tender port and the last tender back to the ship leaves at 1 pm. We swam with the dolphins today. What a great experience! It was better than I expected. We were in a very large saltwater pool; in groups of 8 people. Each group had a dolphin and trainer. Our dolphin’s name is Aqua, a 26 year old female 550 pounds about 10 feet long. We started out sitting at the edge of the pool...

Jan 12, 2013 - Great News!!! Gil IS FEELING BETTER!!

Gil is feeling SO much better!! So we decided to take a drive up the Baja coast all the way to La Paz. We had a great time. We went to Cabo Pulmo, an ecological marine park, with protected reefs. Then on to El Truinfo, a historic silver mining town, which had a Piano Museum! At one time they had more pianos per capita in the whole country! After that we ventured into La Paz, WAY to big for us, so we chose to hang out at the hotel we rented and just relax for a few days. Before returning to Cabo, we went to another town called Todo Santos...
