South to La Paz

Posted on Posted in Baja California 2009

Left my beach camp and headed towards La Paz. Very cool town by the way. I will explore more on my way north. Took mostly dirt roads along the Sea of Cortez where I came across many nice properties and beaches. Stopped in Los Barriles and bought some food from two guys in a road side shack. I got half a chicken with a stack of tortillas and the fixings for $65 pesos ($4.33 US). While waiting for one guy to reheat my food on the grill, the other guy asked me my name in Spanish, but sounded like English in my head. After reheating, the meat tossed on a cutting board and whacked apart by a huge knife. I ended my day at another beach on the eastern side near Cabo Pulmo NP. I got to see two hump back whales breaching off shore. An older surfer approached me and asked about my truck. Ended up he was wanting to bum some beer.
