Shopping district

Local taco stand: excellent food. good prices. $1.30/taco

On our way around town we saw a truck selling something and stopped to see what it could be and low and behold it was a fish truck. they had lots of fish, scallops and shrimp for sale. We bought 2 kg of medium sized shrimp at $14/kg and jumbo shrimp for $17/kg. When I say jumbo I mean huge!!!!! the shrimp were fresh where as the crab and some of the fish were not as stated by the owner of the business.

I thought I should show some of the electrical panels we have seen in this town as well as other towns and cities we have visited. This panel is on one side of the sidewalk. Not what we are used to seeing North of the Mexico border.

El Litro RV park

It has a narrow entrance, but once you get inside the park is not too bad for larger rigs. We paid $15/night ( full hook-up), washroom facilities, no WiFi. The park was quite clean. There is a lower area of the campground that can be used for tenting or smaller RV's and it is quite shaded. The upper section where we stayed had trees where the permanent  Rv'rs were parked, but no shade where we were parked.

There was road noise and lots of roosters crowing and dogs barking. You are a couple miles from the beach. You are only 4 blocks from downtown.

Bathrooms, new ones are being built to the right.

San Antonio

We made a side trip on the way back to Los Barriles and took a look around at San Antonio. San Antonio, a mining town in times past, is 18 miles north of San Bartolo.  Silver was discovered here in 1748.  San Antonio served briefly as the capital of South Baja in 1829 when Loreto was destroyed by a hurricane.  It is hard to believe that this small town once had a population of 10,000.  The unusual church, many old buildings and the remains of the exhausted mines make San Antonio an ideal "out of the ordinary" photo stop.  The large smoke stack from one of the abandoned mines, which is  dated 1890, dominates the town skyline.

We are leaving for Constitucion (http://www.bajalife.com/constitucion/ )tomorrow morning (25 Feb) and on to Loreto the next day. On the road again heading North, slowly.......... many more stops on the way and I will try to document everything as we go or when we have the Internet.
