hi Jayne, heard Oaxaca (wa-HAH-Ka...to those who do not know Mexico) is beautiful. My favorite place was on my last trip to Mexico where I went to Guanajuato. Beautiful Colonial city and the colors of all the houses was something to see!. Sounds like Baja is not as fun place as the main land. Heard the roads are terrible there, much narrower than main land Mexico. We follow Mike & Terri Churche's books and have maps and names of campgrounds in Baja. Could really use you imput on the travels there. My Mom went on a trip to Loreto. She fell and came back from the trip with two black eyes!!

Hi again.............busy today because there are two small caravans visiting the RV park two blocks from where I live. Yakking it up and visiting with the GORGEOUS rving doggies..........special little shitz zhu won my heart (and soul)........all dressed up with her oink ribbons, smelling like perfume.....AH YES.........memories of the life out of Hasta Leugo land. Sheesh - your Mom probably fell becaue the sidewalks are full of holes and ups and downs......but recently (here in Loreto) the government has been rebuilding the main street, and adjoining sidewalks. Seems to take forever. My travels from Vancouver to Cabo were 12 years ago. This time, because of fond memories, as I was heading north from Acapulco (where I lived the past 3 years) Loreto was supposed to be just a stop off (look/see).........BUT.........now 8 months later, a life is building here for me. YES, very true that the mainland is where it's at! Prices here (especially little Loreto) are atrocious in comparison to mainland Mexico but the trade off is a touch safer and a touch more protection. The Baja seems to be held back somewhat from the development and availability of things - like the mainland has. I have 11 years fulltime life in various states (Yes Oaxaca wins the prize - Huatulco)of Mexico......sure could answer alot of questions you might have! I have a beautiful photo power point presentation of 20 tourist photos of Loreto that I could send as an attachment to an email.......I have published my email on this forum........send me a note! Weather today is 29C daytime, 18 night.........windy windy windy.......barefeet in sandals and short sleeve t-shirt. Hi to your precious four-footers! Jayne

Jayne you'll have to go into my profile for my E-mail address I cannot send you a private message. Yes I'd love to see the photo's. Our friends are just starting down the coast and in Ensenada. I'll bet the other groups down there are the Fantasy or Adventure groups. They want too much money for their tours and we go only with the Escapees Mexican Connection...much cheaper and more fun because we branch off and go our own ways coming back out. Although it sounds and from the look of the maps of Baja there is basicly only one way. We'll head your way with a small group someday and look you up if you are still there. The more information about Baja I get is exciting though.

Are the waters safe for a inflatable Kayak? I LOVE my kayak! Good snorkle areas with shells? I love to collect shells in Mexico.

snorkling is beyond your imagination inflatable kayak? well I would keep close to shores and inlets.........a wind DOES whip up rather quick at times.........and don't forget how it works here........if you are lost in your boat because you did not heed precautions, and you are saved by local authorities, you will be responsible for all costs.
The seashells are absoloutely stunning. Certain times of season, for certain types of shells. Although I have never seen the shell museum in FLorida, I'll make a bet the Sea of Cortez shores could WOW them. home on wheels is the only life

When we stayed at Puerto Penasco, just 70 miles from the US border, the tide went out about a mile. You could wade out and see all the tidal pools. One morning the beach was covered with millions of Turret Shells. They were pure white, and about 4 inches long. The RV Park is right at the waters edge and the sun sets into the water right in front of you. Water was good and so was the food. We never had tummy troubles there.

I brought back sooo many shells from my 2005 Mexican trip around Cancun and down around the coast of San Carlos.
