Another trip to Baja!

So after the South West Symposium in San Diego it was time for another coaches trip to Baja Mexico.


We set up camp at La Bufadora, just south of Ensenada - this is the site of the biggest blow hole in the world! (alegedly!)







Someimes the sea is very calm



But most times the Pacific swells make it a rock gardening heaven!


Here's Eila playing in her Pilgrim

You do need to get the timing right though, I won't be naming this hapless paddler, to protect their dignity!

Here's a photo of me getting the weeks first wash in the 'little' blowhole - first the big breath


Then the big rinse!







Oh dear - perhaps one of us should have pulled their boat a little higher up the beach! I saw some lovely starfish and risked life and limb in the swells to get close to them.

After a quick photo shoot I put him back on the rock where he came from!


Some of the wildlife wasn't quite so friendly - we found this little fella under Eila's tent!Eila taking it easy after a day on the water!The best tachos in Baja!
