May 23 – June 3, 2013 Santa Rosalia

We left Bahia Concepcion Thursday morning and traveled 48 miles to Santa Rosalia. It is not as hot as it has been in previous years. We don’t have the big shade up and some days we don’t run the air conditioner! This is as far north in the sea as we will go this trip. From here it is a slow trip south to La Paz.

As usual there are many great places to eat in Santa Rosalia. The first night was the world famous bacon wrapped hot dogs. Yummm. We had a large crowd of gringos there that night.

The next morning it was fish tacos on the street. Love those shrimp tacos!! That evening we had a dock party between ‘Moontide’ and ‘Taleon’. Great food and drinks and we watched the full moon come up.

The next day was Rick’s birthday. First we had Martini’s on Full Shell, then the whole gang went to El Muelle for dinner. Rick is 62 and is celebrating big because he can collect SS!

We’ve gone out to eat almost everyday in this town. Hot dogs, pizza, Chinese food, Georges burgers, Terco’s Chicken Place and also Splash and Thrifty’s Ice Cream. We better get out of here soon!


June 1 is Marina Day, like the US Memorial Day. Santa Rosalia celebrates big time. Carnival with bands that play all night. Crowning of the Queen and Princess. Tours of the Navy ship and the ferry.

June 1 we also celebrated Marilyn and John’s birthday. The gang went to Terco’s for a great meal. After dinner, Full Shell and Mimiya left for San Carlos. We won’t see them again till next year.

We have provisions and it is time to get out of Santa Rosalia. One more stop at the hot dog stand and we will be on our way south in the morning.
