Hola from Gonzaga Bay! We spent a couple of nights here this time through Baja. The first night here was pretty crowded since we arrived on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. But on Sunday night we were just about all alone here.
Most of the original round palapas were destroyed by the last hurricane and they were replaced by smaller but sturdier versions.
It’s nice to be back here. I spent a decent amount of time here as a kid and it’s nice to add to the memories I already have from here.
I didn’t think this spot would be good for the cats because of coyotes but it actually worked out well. There is so much open space in front of the van which is scary for the cats, so they stick close to the van and palapa.
The kids spent their time in the sand…
… and in the sea. A little chilly but still fun.
Whenever there is a chance to cook outside, we try to do just that. The palapa makes it easier as well by blocking the wind so our propane stove stays lit.
That means less mess inside our home.
Golden hour shenanigans.
On the first night there, we had the cats on leashes due to the number of people and loose dogs.
It’s such a treat to have them loose again. For them and for us.
Yes, we squeeze a guitar in our home as well. Plenty of room. Ha.
And the beautiful Sea of Cortez.
The avocados we picked from my parents’ tree are finally ripe. Guacamole for dinner!
Here is Dan’s video from our stay here:
