Day 2 in Mexico October 26, 2007

We made it from Hermosillo to San Carlos.


 It is not a very long drive. We left at 10:00 and pulled into Totonaka RV Park about 1:30 PM. The park looked pretty empty. The guy in the office told us just pick a spot. We chose a 30 AMP so we could run our air conditioner. We are spoiled!!!! The other choice would have been 15 AMPs.  Unfortunately, the voltage sometimes jumps to 133 volts.  This is bad because our safety system will cut out at 130 volts.


We picked a spot and as we were setting up everyone started pulling in to the park. They had come all the way from the border today. Most were leaving the next morning heading farther south. We will be here for a week then we will head farther south ourselves. Will the same thing happen today with a slew of RVs showing up in the afternoon?

There were 2 RVs traveling together. They had left the states early this morning. They were leaving the next day to go to Mazatlan and then the next day to Puerta Vallarta. We asked ourselves why are they trying to kill themselves to get there? Then we laughed and said maybe all they have time for is 2 weeks—like maybe they are on a 2 week vacation from w o r k.

We drove around San Carlos and it is a gorgeous place. San Carlos has small bays full of sailboats, marinas, and beautiful houses on the hills overlooking the bays. We see why it is a popular spot for norteamericanos to buy houses here. You are only 5 hours to the US border and the weather is pleasant during the winter. Some norteamericanos live here year round while others just live in their houses for the winter.

One of many bays.


We ate out last night and had our first margaritas. They were strong but good.


Then we had shrimp wrapped in bacon and crab gratin.



Nice meal looking over the Sea of Cortez. This was our view.

Life, as we know it, doesn’t suck!!!!!!!

    Gorgeous place. That’s a pretty full bay. I love having a meal overlooking the water.
    I like your leisurely pace and your final sentence.

    I can see you are vigilantly watching what you eat!! You know Mexico will probably be packed with Canadians, because for the first time their money is as good or better than US Dollars.
