We left Cabo San
Lucas on the 22 Feb and headed for Todos Santos
There was beautiful
scenery in Todos Santos as you can see from the picture below.
Entering ton on Mex
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.
Lower section of
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.
around the town square
We are leaving for 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.
