A Prisoner of the Driveway

We are a prisoner of the driveway. The car didn't get done as expected. The parts couldn't be found in Mexicali, so they had to be ordered from the states. So, we are now going to be leaving San Felipe on Friday rather than today. Looking forward to getting back to La Salina / La Mision to start working on "The Bien Vida Marketplace" at Baja Seasons, a weekly outdoor music and marketplace on the beach and the Sweet Sixx Cabaret, which we plan to tour first of January before the Blues Against Hunger Season. Chomping at the bit...let's get this party started!

Getting Ready!

We are almost ready to leave San Felipe once again for La Salina. Rachel installed a new slide awning on the RV and we are having new brakes, bearings, and blah blah blah on the car, which should be done on Tuesday. Looks like we are going to start working on a new big event and also do some Sweet Sixx Cabaret shows between now and our 5th annual Baja Blues Against Hunger tour in January...which is our biggest yet. Only 2 seats left on a bus; however you can also drive yourselves...we are RV's, campers and cars all on the caravan - SOOOO excited. Anyways, back at it.

The trip from La Paz to Los Barriles is always short but very enjoyable ride with a stop in El Triunfo to see and take photos of The Nuestra Senora de Guadelupe church. HISTORY - El Triunfo is a small mining town in La Paz Municipality, BCS, about 4½ miles north of San Antonio. In 1862, silver and gold were discovered in the southern BCS. mountains, leading miners from Mexico and the United States to set up camp. Once the largest city in BCS it was home to more than 10,000 miners., now BCS is marketing it as the "Puebio Historico" "The Historical Village".

Day 7- Baja Blues Tour: Loreto to La Paz

Day 7- (Feb. 20, 2018) Loreto to La Paz SEE PHOTOS

A day driving from Loreto to La Paz was about 5.5 hours on straight and curvy roads with wonderful vistas and valleys. Driving south to La Paz we the view of the Bay as we pass Loreto Bay, cool place with a beautiful cove for snorkeling. The drive continued passed multiple islands along the coastline, small rugged mountains, peppered with agave, ocatillo, and large cactus; creating breathtaking views.

As we entered La Paz were we stopped at the Whale Tail Monument for a few photos and on to our overnight home, The Hotel One. Then a taxi ride down to the La Paz Malecon and dinner at the famous Tailhunter Restaurant. Followed by and relaxing walk along the Malecon with many cool sculptures that the line the shore including the New La Paz city Letters, were everyone posed for photos...and of course a stop at the La Monches shop for ice cream. Half walked back to the home and the other taxied it home. A wonderful night of food fun and friendships.
