Today (Monday) we left San Felipe.
We weren't in a big hurry to leave so we got away at 9:30 a.m.

We stopped when we got to Mexicalli and took a picture of this little store. We've gone past this store twice each year (on our way down and on our way back) but never thought to stop for a picture. Well, maybe it's because I've been painting - we take pictures of EVERYTHING!!! Thought you'd all get a kick out of it. I'll bet they sell beer?????

We arrived at the border at 1 0'clock. It took us 2 hours and 45 minutes to clear the border. The line up was LONG!!! We should have known better. Every man and his dog was going home from the Baja 250!! Oh well, we didn't have anywhere to go anyway. We just dry camped at the WalMart in ElCentro for the night, did some shopping - put some American food in our fridge!!

We went to the 'Parade of Cars' on the Melacon this morning. We just walked around, did a little souvenier shopping and looked at the entries for the Baja 250 to be held the next day (Saturday). This is a picture of the Melecon - busy place!!!

This is a picture of one of the other entries.

There was only one Canadian entry. In the 4-wheel large truck division. A young man (Mike) from Edmonton. Don't know where he finished in the race. This was his truck.

Went south to Puertocitos, about 75 km from San Felipe, to sit in the natural not springs. We had a good day, packed a small lunch and a couple of cervezas. We got there with enough time to enjoy the hot springs before the tides began to come in. Once the tides come in they get too cold and you have to wait until the tides go back out in order to get back in.

In the 1st picture is the group we went down with: starting in back: Margie, Ellie, Bill, Dalton, Ruellie, Albert and Michel….

The 2nd picture is taken from the opposite end of the pool. You can see the steam coming off the top pool. It was too hot to go in, and we had to wait until the tide came in to cool it off enough….

Today was Rich and Tina’s last day in San Felipe. So we went out for a ‘good bye’ dinner and a little partying….We were originally going to leave with them, but Michel wanted to stay another couple of weeks to enjoy the ocean and do a little more sailing. We’ll meet up with them in a few weeks.
