BAJA 2014/15

Jan. 23, 2015

Chico was correct. The north wind started yesterday and continued today. Our tent alerted us to the conditions. We checked out the wind speed using our wind gauge which recorded gusts around 30mph. We would be spending a couple of days here. Not a bad place to explore, and since we have full water, there is no water stress. The tidal pools expose  numerous creatures that we had not seen for awhile. One of our favorites are the colorful nudibrachs. Plenty of opportunities to walk up the arroyos as well. A beautiful sand beach to the north also is worth spending time at. We moved our kitchen to a more protected area, but soon were visited by numerous wasps. We finally gave them some water and brown sugar which seemed to draw them away from us. The wind protection for our kitchen was great here, but the wasps were annoying. We will be looking for other options for the next meal. During a long hike thru the desert we managed to see a dessert hare with it huge ears used for cooling its body during the summer heat. We have enjoyed our forced stay here!
