We were up early and got to Loreto before 8. The Park office said they would be open by 9, but that was Baja time and it was closer to 10. As we were waiting at the beach , Don checked out some hotels near by. The one that was located closest to the beach had the best deal and we could carry our kayaks up to the patio in front of our room. They also recommended a place that would do our laundry. We purchased our permits and planned for an early departure in the morning. Errands today included purchasing fresh food, getting our food that we had left with our friend Trudy and filling up our water at Aqua purificado. We were done by early afternoon and had an early dinner at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants, Orlandos.. Our clothes were ready, folded and probably the most clean that they had been since purchased new. Our bodies were also clean, we were ready to go explore the islands!
