Read Part 1 if you haven’t already!

After running off the road, we had the motorhome checked over in Guerro Negro, and then continued on our way down the Baja.

San Icnacio is one of the smaller towns we visited.  I really fell in love with the feel of it.  The little shops, sidewalk cafes and of course the church.  I think this is a place I could go back to and spend a lot of time.  Maybe open a café…hmm, I love to dream.  My whales are there too, which I got to see on our way back.  More about them later…

Baja - Town Center

Beautiful old mission in town center.

Linda, Merle, Mike, me, and Mary enjoying coffee in San Icnacio.

All along the way, we stopped at many interesting old cemetaries.  Mary loved walking through them and seeing the old stones, stories, etc.  At first I thought it was a rather strange thing to do, but eventually decided it was really fascinating.  There are so many different classes of gravesites, and all so personalized you could just tell the love the families had for their lost ones.  I learned to appreciate them as well.  Notice the wide difference in these grave sites.  From the wealthy to the poor.

Baja - Mulege

A cemetery in Mulege.

Loreto

Loreto is an awesome town.  We camped right next to the water just outside of town so were able to walk along the water, or just sit and enjoy it.  When we went to town there were beautiful modern hotels and shops as well as the little vendors and cafes.  What a great mix!  I especially loved the tree lined walkway leading from the town center to the malacon where we sat and watched pelicans diving for fish.
