Back in the U.S.A.

San Marco Pass northeast of Santa Barbara

Well, we are heading north. I have to say we are sad to see Mexico in the rear view mirror. We stayed a few nights camping in Potrero visiting friends, and now we are in Ventura/Oxnard with our good old friend Ralph. We are doing some day rides here and getting used to wearing anything but bathingsuits and sandals. We will hang out here for a few days then continue on north slowly but surely, stopping along the way to visit friends from Baja. I hope they ment it when they said stop in, we always do!

Answer to your questions

Here is the answer to your questions "Where are you and what are you doing?
We have been searching high and low for the most beautiful spots in Baja California, and after much time we have decided we can't put our finger on just one spot and we definately didn't have time to see them all so we will have to come back again, maybe next year!

We are now in Potrero County near San Diego. Where to next? Maybe north, maybe south into mainland Mexico to see the Copper Canyon. We will have to see which way the wind is blowing when we are ready to move on.

San Franciscito

I must tell you about this magnificent place we have found. Image a beach, not too big maybe two km long, nesseled among a coastline dotted with islands of various sizes, and water so blue you would think it was poured directly off a paintbrush. The sand is so white you can't even think of removing your sunglasses and it cascades down into the water like a sahara sand dune. The storeline is a host to many different types of sealife, starfish, sting ray, blow fish, crab, and angel fish, all of which you will see as you wander down the beach.
Not a breath of wind is blowing, a stillness like this I have never experienced, nothing is moving. As the sun begins to set, the sky starts to melt into the ocean turning the water a pink colour. You can't tell where the sky stops and the water begins.
As the day turns to night and the sky to black 2500 stars appear as far as the eye can see. Sitting on the beach and reflecting on the days events all you can hear is yourself breathing until out of no where in the darkness, sounding lonely, comes the slow hollow sound of a whale blowing in the not all that distant waters.

This San Franciscito is about 140 km south of Bahia de los Angeles on the roughest and sandiest road you could imagine. We pitched our tent on the top of the beach and spent a long night, because after the calmness of the day the wind picked up at around 9:00 pm. It battered us around all night but it was worth it. The next day the wind continued and so did we on our 540 km round trip through old missions, El Arco, Guerro Negro and back to Bahia de los Angeles. What a ride!
