Tuesday we drove up to Los Barriles (about 65 miles north) to see Neil and Lisa (who a couple of days ago left San Lucas for Los Barriles). This also gave Louise and me the chance to see this part of the country again. It had been about 6 years or more since we were last there. As San Lucas and San Jose, Los Barriles is exploding. New homes, condominiums, and commercial buildings are everywhere. The last time we were there, they still had the dirt air field in front of the hotel, but now it is nothing but buildings, a park or green grass. After finding Neil and Lisa all settled into their coach we also found a couple that we were camped next to at Imperial Dam in Arizona. Lisa had heard about this “great little restaurant” that we should check out for lunch, so that off we went. In pulling into the parking area (of course it was all dirt and the restaurant was an open palapa) we saw John, our neighbor back in San Lucas, just finishing up his lunch. John is the guy whose birthday we celebrated on the 5th. He had come up to check out his next stop after he leaves Vagabundos in San Lucas. Our lunch, well it just didn’t measure up to the hype. After finishing up with lunch and saying good bye to John, we headed out to Cabo Pulmo, about an hours drive south along the coast. A number of years ago (about 15) Louise and I joined Bonnie and Doug and camped just south of Cabo Pulmo. We wanted to check that location out because of the great memories we both had. Unfortunately, with the weather pattern that we have found ourselves in, it was very windy, cold as heck, and intermittent rain so we only spent a couple of minutes and headed back to Los Barriles. Yesterday was “laundry” day and today, well we walked into town, had “brunch” at the Sand Bar and headed back to our coach. Yesterday a small caravan of RV’s came into the park so Louise and I have been introducing ourselves around to the “newbie’s” and listening to some of their stories on driving the Baja.
