We traveled out of Bahia Kino with Sol and Carol and headed east to Hermosillo. After doing a little shopping at Soriano’s we turned south for San Carlos. Traffic was heavy going through Hermosillo and when I looked in my rearview mirror I wasn’t too surprised to see a policia pull up beside Sol and Carol (or me for that matter) and flash their red/blue lights at them. Well, Sol is driving a 4X4 GMC 4 door pick-up and pulling a 37’ 5th wheel so finding a spot to pull off the road was almost impossible. For us, it was still impossible until we got another mile or so up the highway until we found a spot long and wide enough for us to get off the road. We had no idea as to what they wanted, but we did know that there was nothing we could do by sitting beside the road in this hot weather waiting. After about 10 minutes or so, we pulled back on the road and continued south. Not long after I noticed a 5th wheel coming up on us pretty fast and knew Sol was trying to make up time. The drive from Hermosillo to San Carlos was just over an hour and 30 minutes and that’s when we found out what happened back there…”they ran a red light”… 400 peso’s later and they were on their way. I’m not sure we should be keeping this kind of “company”… Totonaka RV Park is across the street from the sea but after the last storm that came through here in October, the access to the beach might as well be in the next state. It was one of those storms that took all the sand from the beach and shifted it somewhere else. It left a big mess and tough access to the beach. Like in Bahia Kino, Sol and Carol asked us to go out with them and explore the area in their truck. It’s very nice when people take pity on us for not having a car/truck to get around in. This is another beautiful beach community that deserves the kind words of those of us that were given the opportunity to visit. With the exception of the damage and the work that is now being done because of the storm, San Carlos is a small Cabo San Lucas, but 30 years behind, and this is all good... We took a short break from our drive and found a great little lagoon to do some swimming. The water was great, sand soft, and the surrounding mountains were magnificent. Refreshed from our drive and the swim, we headed back to the campground. At the entrance to the campground is this restaurant/ bar that offers a free margarita to those of us that are staying at the campground so we made a stop for refreshments. I must admit, this “Free” margarita was one of the best I’ve ever had…fact is, we all thought so. We thought it was so good that we had to be polite and have another with dinner.
