March 10, 2012 –
Well can you believe we are already on Day 5 of our last tour of the season, times sure fly’s when your having fun and enjoying the sun on Baja! We just said goodbye to our last group last Saturday morning on a very warm and bright morning on the US side of the Tecate border crossing, they were a great group for sure and really enjoyed their experience in Mexico’s frontier. Lisa’s Mom Sylvia returned with us after spending a month in Cabo San Lucas at the RV Park, after traveling down with us on our January Tour.
We expect many from this group will be returning in years to come for sure. Our tasting and tour of the Casa Pedro Domecq Winery for the first time was a big hit and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. We have already made our reservations for our March tour and are confident they will also be impressed. The tour and tasting at both LA Cetto and Casa Pedro Domecq provide our tours with a strong finish and a complete Baja experience.
Today our group heads out to see the Grey Whales, lots of mothers and calves, well over a thousand (1000) whales in the lagoon. This will be an experience they remember for sometime, the wind is down and the forecast calls for sunny skies and warm temperatures, a high of 26C predicted today.
Speaking of winds, wow did we get some over the past two (2) days! It was quite windy when we arrived at Fidel’s on Day 2, however that died right off as usual in the evening. The next day as we drove to Catavina, the wind really picked up and our drive was scenic and slow. Around midnight we experienced gale force winds which woke everyone up and rocked the RVs. In the morning the wind seemed to have abated but soon returned with a vengeance once we hit the road as we headed for Guerrero Negro. As we approached El Pedregoso awnings on slides of the A Class Motorhomes started to unfurl and we had to make a quick stop to rectify the situation, luckily we were able to find a place to pull over and made the repairs necessary to continue on. Everyone was very relieved to reach our body break stop at the Bahia de los Angeles Junction and the winds had finally calmed down. Baja is always and adventure!
