Hello from San Ignacio, Baja California Sur, Mexico.
We found ourselves camping at Petate but this time was way muddier. The hurricane damage was obvious here. Still feels magical with all these palms but the mosquitos were so bad we could only handle one night here. The owner charged us 250 pesos for a spot by the water with no amenities.
The girls immediately took advantage of the plastic table and chairs for art time. They usually just have watercolors and acrylics but we added gouache paint to the mix and it’s been fun watching them grow as artists.
The next day we moved to El Padrino Campground. We needed to get out of the mud and mosquitos and take some showers as well. This place has amenities and was 50 pesos cheaper than the last place.
And a quick walk into town as well.
Time to fill our bellies at Rancho Grande. Mila’s lemonade was fancy at this place.
And she is continuing her enchilada quest across Baja. Her favorite is still from San Felipe so far.
My chile rellanos were pretty good.
So were the beers. Cheers to me! It was my birthday 🙂
No one can resist random cat snuggles.
Or donkey snuggles. Haha.
Ice cream time!
A quick peek at the mission in the town.
Kids insisted on more photos of me today so cheeeeeesse.
Walking home. Luka’s new little shadow is with him. We’ve been camping with them for a few days.
Made it back to camp and Luka insisted I take a photo of the swan planter since we already posed with the frog planter. He wants to be fair. ha.
No birthday cakes in town so date bread it was. It was good, kinda like bland banana bread with no nuts.
Handmade birthday cards are always my favorite thing.
Cats got to have some freedom here. I had to tell the camp dogs not to chase them and it worked.
The dogs ended up chasing the wild horses and donkeys instead.
Home for a couple of nights.
Camp dogs enjoyed sleeping on our rug at night.
Ava looking very grown up.
And what a way to end our stay here. Look at the sunset. Dan took a good timelapse of it in his vlog.
Even Toby was amazed.
A quick visit from a puppy.
And soooooo many vultures!
Here is Dan’s vlog from this place:

Thanks for following along on our family’s adventure,
