Woke up: Bahia Tortugas, Baja California Sur, Mexico
Went to sleep: Bahia Tortugas, Baja California Sur, Mexico
Ground Hog Day
It feels like Ground Hog Day. Every day we wake up in Turtle Bay. Every day we go to the Restaurant Tortuga and check Passage Weather. Every day it looks too rough to leave here and head north.
Most of the others in the bay have gone. They have jobs or obligations that require them to get home. I’m sure they will make it just fine, if not exceedingly uncomfortable.
Every morning we take the dinghy to the pier.
We climb these stairs to get the deck above.
Enrique operates a business on the pier.
You can get most things you need from Enrique. Diesel, a ride to shore, garbage service. It’s a family business. Enrique employs his two brothers, both named Enrique. His dad, Enrique, works for the company, too. As do 10 or 15 cousins, Enrique. Any time you need anything, simply get on the radio, channel 16, and call Enrique. Someone will come to assist.
This morning we went for a hike.
The folks in the town are very innovative. They’ve built this retaining wall using appliances, refrigerators, washers, dryers.
Each day we sit at the Restaurant Tortuga’s and check our e-mail, check the weather, and blog. The food is great and exceedingly cheap. I order a bottle of water and the proprietor walks across the street to the tienda and brings back a bottle of water to serve to me at my table. Enterprising.
