The Colours of Baja

Believe it or not these are shrines at the graveyard.

They are little houses built to honour deceased loved ones.

This has become one of our favourite restaurants in La Paz , Rancho Viejo, thanks to Jodi & Mike introducing us to it.

Here we are enjoying another meal there.

The malecon in La Paz.

Love this mural!
Went for a lovely bike ride this morning, returned to the trailer for lunch and then hit the beach for a long walk this afternoon. We don't think we'll ever tire of this lifestyle! Our Skeena dog seems to agree wholeheartedly as well. Our shell collecting may have to slow down a somewhat as we've run out of places to store them. Their just so pretty! On our bike ride we explored the local cemetary. It is mind boggling to see how the Mexican's honour their dead. The shrines that they build for the deceased are sometimes nicer that what the living have as houses. Some are just so beautiful.

Travelled to La Paz with Jodi & Mike yesterday for groceries, money and culture. It sure makes a difference when you go to a new city with people that know where they're going - little or no stress!

We're pulling up stakes in La Ventana Tuesday and heading to San Jose del Cabo to meet up with Murray and Tracey. The plan is to show them a few places we've discovered in our previous trips down here. Haven't been fishing in the last few days but plan on taking one more stab at it tomorrow if it's not too windy. We'll continue this saga when we get to San Jose.
