Heading southward down the highway brought us to La Ventana. This is the windsurfing and kitesailing capital of Baja. And wow, what a crowd we saw. The RV parks were packed full of campers, RVs, tents and gear. The skyline was dotted with the flying wings of kitesailors and the water was filled with boards of all types. We were genuinely surprised and somewhat overwhelmed by the number of people there. So we drove a little further through town and picked up a hitchhiker. He said his name was Crusty, and mentioned that there was space where he was parked. We took a look at that beach (not too bad, but still quite a few people) and decided to push on past the pavement. We found the end of the road, and a great beach to camp on for two nights.
When we left, we stopped at San Bartolo to enjoy a delicious lunch and then settled in to a large, quiet RV park in Las Barriles with great trees and the sound of the ocean just past the rock boundary. And again we have bumped in to our fellow travelers www.flightlesskiwis.com and www.travelingtheamericas.com . Always great to see familiar faces on the road. But we are on to the remaining coves of the East Cape on the Sea of Cortez. More to come…..
