Heading South in Baja

We continued to head south in Baja and crossed the State line into Baja Sur. This meant we had to put our clocks forward an hour only to put them back a couple of days later with the removal of daylight saving time.

We stopped for lunch at Santa Rosalia before pulling in at the picturesque Playa Santispac to spend a couple of days on the beach. Whilst there were not many facilities the main pull was the water and the beach. And for 6 dollars a night what could you expect.

Alisha and Lucy were a little reluctant to go in the water as there were stingrays in the shallows and we did see a few small ones but it just meant you had to go swimming with your crocs on.

After a couple of relaxing days on the beach we headed about 100kms south to Lloreto and camped at a lovely quiet campground called Riveria RV park. This was very friendly and had all the facilities so we were able to get washing done. In the afternoon we wondered into town where Gilly and I had our first Mexican margarita.

We had a wonder through the lovely town which contained the first mission established in Baja California back in 1697.

We finished the evening off with a lovely Mexican meal at a restaurant overlooking the Sea of Cortez. The girls particularly enjoyed the deserts.

The following morning we did the long drive to La Paz. La Paz is a big city and the reason for coming here was to arrange our ferry tickets to the mainland in about a weeks time. We checked into the Aquamarina RV Park and whilst the girls did schooling I headed into town to find the 2 ferry offices. No one at the ferry offices spoke any English so it was time for me to habla Espanyol again. Anyway I think I have it all worked out. We will know tomorrow when I go to pick up the tickets.
