We’ve been on the Baja for 7 days now and yes, we should have posted more often; however still trying to get into a routine. I’ll pick-up where Ang. left off – in Ensenada, our first town after crossing the border. Ensenada is on the coast and the second major town after Tijuana heading south and also boasts one of the biggest Mexican flags I have ever seen.
The major attraction to northern Baja is whale watching, when in season (January), so we continued south and came across what Baja is famous for, cactus and a bit more cactus and it wasn’t till we hit Baja California Sur that we started to camp along the Sea of Cortes. You can’t go wrong camping in spots like these.

We did have a little mishap though. On one of the sweltering hot days, we were heading down a dirt road looking for a spot to camp and Ang. lets me know through the communicator that her bike was wobbly for a second, so she stopped. I'm a bit ahead of her, so make a u-turn and head back and notice that one of her panniers has fallen off and laying on the dirt road behind her. So after spending some time in the heat, lesson learned, check all the pannier fasteners every morning. No serious damage.
We head off to La Paz on Monday morning to catch the ferry to Mazatlan. So the 8 days that we would have spent on the Baja is definitely short; however not sure if I would want to come back here. There are nice beaches; however there are nice beaches elsewhere as well. Probably will see the part of Mexico that we missed by heading this way.
I have really slow internet at the moment, so haven't uploaded any new Mexico pics to the album. Will try again tomorrow.
