This is our final blog about our Baja adventure. Most RV caravans escort members each and every day. A unique feature of our caravan was 18 days on our own. For a group of us the return trip North began by traveling together from Los Barrilles to Playa Santispac. By now we are quite Mexicanized. At this point the roads seemed wider, the towns more attractive. We even used cruise control for the first ime in Mexico. The mountains and beaches of Baja are beautiful. Playa Santispac is a gorgeous beach on the protected waters of Bahia de Concepcion in the Sea of Cortez. With our friends Grant and Arabelle we hired a boat for a tour of the bay and found beautiful shells, sea lions and pelicans. Another day we borrowed Mike and Madeliene’s kayak for a paddle around some islands in the bay. From Santispac near Mulege the entire caravan regrouped for the trip back north to the USA. The highlight of the return was whale watching at Guerrero Negro (see previous blog https://kingsontheroad.wordpress.com/2016/03/07/whales-of-baja/). We also stopped again at El Pabellon beach where owner Jose prepared a a delicious clams ranchero over a campfire right on the beach. The last night the group stayed at Santo Tomas Vineyard, a beautiful facility offering world class wine and olive oil.
The social aspect of the trip exceeded expectations. Our group was experienced and diverse with no attitudes. Maybe we’ll travel together again through Baja. We would love it!
