Good morning…this morning we woke to a beautiful windless sunny day, the water was absolutely flat, and dolphins playing right out in front of our coach. The unfortunate thing about this morning was that it was a travel day. We had to see if we could either catch up with Ricardo and Suzie or stop somewhere out there and have them catch up to us. This morning’s start was to take us back to Hwy 1, which is about 40 miles, and then onto San Quintin, which give us a total of just under 250 miles…a hell of a long day. Just like before, when we were coming into Bahia de los Angles, the view back towards the bay was breath taking but the rest of the 40 miles was through some of the same desert mountainous areas we have traveled for many a mile. Just before Catavina, and the Desierto Central, we came into the “Catavina Boulder Fields”. This vast area of car-sized boulders that run as far as you can see and top the hills so that it will make you strain to see the top, are accented with the Cardon Cacti, elephant trees, and so many other plant species that it would take a year to count. Then no sooner are you in with the boulders and you are out again. Now we are climbing to the top of these hills. The road will follow the very top of the ridge for well over an hour. With a cliff on each side of the road making it a white knuckle drive by itself, we are also given the challenge of switch back corning. First going up, and then coming down, one time you meet a truck coming at you and the next nothing…I can’t say that I am getting used to the narrow, no shoulder roads, but I can relax a little more than when we went down. We pulled into El Rosario for gas and lunch and while Phil was getting his tank filled, he noticed that his left front tire was really low on pressure. He was lucky that he found it when he did, because after lunch we were headed right back into the same type of roads. Luckily coming into El Rosario, we had noticed this large tire shop, so we thought it would be just the right break we needed to have lunch at this famous restaurant here in town, and have the tire fixed at the same time. Just having pulled Phil and Kathy’s motor home up the tire shop, I picked up my Mexican cell phone to see if I could reach Ricardo and Suzie. Wouldn’t you know it, they were just pulling into El Rosario and were but a quarter of a mile away. All 6 of us now could have lunch together and as it turned out, we all stayed over night as well. It was a needed stop for all of us and it was also a great time to see each other once more before we start to spread out across the country again.
