Hello from Bahia De Los Angeles in Baja California, Mexico!
We ended up wild camping at La Gringa for a couple of nights. Everyone is so nicely spaced out here.
We met up with our new traveling friends here, Andrew and Courtney of @tsavo_touring. They are making their way down the PanAm to Ushuaia in their Jeep with a little kid in tow.
The wind really picked up while we were here which I don’t think is unusual. The last time we were here in the Bay of LA in 2017, the winds had us stuck indoors at a campground so we really didn’t get to enjoy the place. Thankfully, this time is a little different thanks to a break in the wind. And our spot is much more scenic.
The sunsets here were such a treat.
While we were here, four different sailing vessels anchored in the bay.
Luka has his backpack on, ready to share his toys with his new little friend. While he waits, he reads Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
According to the sign, there are turtles and whales here. We saw neither, unfortunately.
But we did see so many porpoises and/or dolphins. This is probably the endemic Vaquita, but I’m not 100% sure.
We also watched brown pelicans and cormorants dive bomb for fish too.
Before the sun sets, we tend to take family walks or I send the kids out for a walk on their own.
Today I chose the latter. They walked to the point and back.
Dan and I stayed back near the van to walk the cats. There are reported incidents with coyotes here on the iOverlander app so we decided it’s safest to keep them near us.
I usually get Toby while the other walker gets Twin. She gets scared more easily so her walks are shorter.
Forgot to take photos of Luka swimming but he can’t resist a quick dip in the sea, even when it’s not super warm.
I tend to forget to take photos of our meals. Here is a quick one. We make broth and then add veggies like bok choy and frozen pot stickers. Easy, fast and we all love it.
Time to pack it up and head to the next spot. While Dan and I start organizing with the van doors open, the kids are on cat duty.
The drive to Bahia de Los Angeles is one-way in, one-way out. Unless you opt for the dirt road.
The road is was pretty good but we did pass by workers on the road repairing hurricane damage.
Here is a little video I made from my Instagram stories:
