Good to see Barry on this run.

Letís come down off the hill and go to dinner. Iím sure you have soaked up as much religion as youíre going to soak up.
 
There are lots of interesting things to see on the way to dinner.

 
 
Noahís Ark

 
Footbridge to the end of the malecon.

 
 
Pelicans, I like the pelicans and they are all over the place.

 
Bruce and Barry got to where beer was served before we were even close and they didnít wait. I'm sure we were delayed by something important like a shiny object. They look like happy campers.

 
All settled in at the Rice and Beans and we are all happy campers.

 
Yummmmmmmmmm fish taco.

 
Lots of yummy food.

 
Everything looks so good.

 
Go get it Becky.

 
Bruceís dinner could look back at him. He said it was good. Lee didn't like those fish looking at her and had to turn his dish away from her.

 
Enjoying the Sea of Cortez

 
  
A wonderful dinner was enjoyed and it was time to walk back to camp.

 
The things that can be seen from the footbridge are always changing.

 

San Felipe during the early evening.

 
 
Fishing boat coming out of the sea. I feel sorry for that poor little truck, itís sure being worked.

 
There was a little bit of a trail going up to the chapel so Becky and Barry had to hike/run up it. Meanwhile I slowly walked up the stairs.

 

 
 
The sun going down was turning things pastel.

 
The mountains behind Noahís Ark are now more defined. Itís fun seeing how things change with where the sun is.

 
Baja pup

 
 
Back at camp.

 
More pastels.

 
The down side of camping or even moteling can be the neighbors. When we arrived at camp there was someone in a car next door with horrible music playing. Rap. Yucky rap crap. Then it would go to something else but still not pleasant then relieve when they would play an oldie (where did that come from?) then back to the horrible stuff. Noise makes me crabby, I like quiet and I was thinking camping there was going to be miserable. When we returned from dinner the other neighbors turned on their stereo and now it was opera. At least it wasnít so bad and sort of drowned out the other stuff. It wasnít long until it all stopped and things were good.
 
The moon comes up.

 
Itís full, bright, and pretty.

 
Itís dark and time for the AARP riders to retire to their tents for a good nightís sleep.

Great baja report!

I'll be heading there in about a week - after reading your report, that isn't soon enough...

I was on my Suzuki Dr650 and most times wished it was smaller. As soon as it got sandy or rough light weight became important. On Highways, in baja, a 250 would be just fine. Barry's crf250l was almost cheating it was so good.
Pack light, don't carry what you can buy easily and smell the flowers!

Thanks. I tried to get everyoneís names on the pictures they gave me for this report and my photos are the ones with no name. There were 5 different cameras here clicking away. The lanyard I use is just a dollar store lanyard attached to the wrist strap of the camera.
Following are the cameras:
Becky Ė Cannon PowerShot A2500 & Nikon Coolpix AW110
Lee Ė Cannon PowerShot A1400
Barry Ė iPhone
Mine Ė
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS25

It would be interesting staying there that long. I get tired of the sand in and on everything but Iím guessing you get used to it if you are there any length of time.

My DR200 and Leeís TW200 could do about 55mph fully loaded. If we were on a flat stretch with a little slant or tail wind we could kick it up to 60 mph +. Barryís CRF250 and Beckyís XT250 can do better and Bruceís DR650 could run away from all of us.

We didnít see much traffic even on the highway down there so our speed was never a problem. If you are in a hurry or have a need for speed a small bike probably wouldnít make you happy but if you want to kick back and smell the roses the small bikes are a blast.

Day 4 still in San Felipe and weíre going to see the Giants! Tuesday, 11-19-13

Baja mornings One of the best parts of Baja is the mornings on the beach. I set alarm each night to make sure I was up early enough to be able to enjoy the dark change to light and the sun come up. The others were up just as early and we all enjoyed the beautiful rapidly changing light and colors.


You look one direction and you see a beautiful sunrise



Look the other way and you get to see the full moon still fairly high in the sky.

 

The sea produced some fun designs in the sand.


 

 


 


 

Footprints in the sand

 


 


 

Pelican likes the sunrise too.

 

Itís getting lighter and the colors are starting to fade so maybe we can tear ourselves away from the beach and go to breakfast.

 
Walking to breakfast we took time to enjoy the flowers.


 

 
Say hi to the kitty cat.

 
When we saw this the day before we had no idea of what the round roof was over.

 

We discovered there were race boats stored under there.

 


 

Look at all of them headed for the sea.

 

In the water those things really moved. I was surprised how they shot through the water.

 

I found a hot date.

 

Cool fence

 

Breakfast time (we liked this place for breakfast)

 

Their menu is in Spanish

 

And English

 

It looks like Bruce was getting something over on Barry.

 

It looks like Barry got Bruce back.

 
We were out awful early for Mexican time.

 
Time for me to get some sleep. Iíll be back tomorrow with more pictures.

Sherry you are doing an amazing job on the ride report. I know this is taking a lot of time and effort because you had at least 2000 pictures to go through and pick out only a few. To relive this through your RR brings back so many giggles and memories. The best AARP Gone Wild ~ BAJA Style ever

Barry just agree with me it will save time

Lee and Sherry you two are the best comardes to travel with

I can not think of anything to add yet to the report.

I did like that geritol comment earlier

LOL Becky, I always agree with you. It was Bruce that was always arguing with you.

Pulpo (octopus) omelets. I don't know how good octopus in an omelet is, but it's great in a cocktel or fried in olive oil.

I have found quite a few places in Mexico that don't even bother to offer octopus to gringos (or else they leave it out of the seafood cocktels) because they are so aware that most of us won't eat octopus.

I ordered octopus in olive oil once and the wiater very politely asked a friend of mine, in Spanish, if he thought that I knew what I was ordering.

This thing is so cool. I wish the owner would have been around.

 
Itís even from the same state that I live in. The Good Sam club sticker needs to be replaced though with an ADV sticker.

 

Sweet!! Volvo Laplander, I just tried to trade my BMW for one.
