Time flies when you are having fun. I have not posted a blog in quite some time. However, in my defense, the wi-fi and cellular data here in Mexico is HORRIBLE. If you use too much, they just shut you off. Even though my cellular plan usually has plenty of gigs, the international plan is limited. Even though I pay for wi-fi in the park, because there is no free wi-fi in the park, if I use too much, they just shut it off until the next month. That is the only downside about being here. 

This is the reason we were in Arizona and are now in Mexico.
Now for the pictures and the stories behind them. 

A picture of the beach from the RV park.

We are staying in a small RV park called El Golfo which is in the tiny fishing village of El Golfo de Santa Clara, Sonora, Mexico. If you look closely at the picture, you can see the outline of some low mountains on the horizon. Those mountains are in Baja California.
Beer stop.
One of my favorite activities has been riding in the hills with the quads and side-by-sides Off Highway Vehicles. The landscape is rugged and barren. 

Looking back towards the town and RV park from on top of Lighthouse Hill.
The old lighthouse.
Out in the hills
One of the hills

Rugged hills.

Rolling hills.
Oh Shit Hill.
This hill is steep, steep, STEEP. It's not a cliff, but almost. It is almost as scary going down it as it is going up. Everyone doesn't make it up on the first try. You can't turn around, because you would roll over. If you don't make it up, you have to back all the way down. Each person waits for the person in front of them to make the top before starting up the hill. We are waiting for the person in front of us to try it next.

Sunset at the beach.
If you look closely at the picture you can see one boat in the water and trucks and trailers on the beach. They drive the truck and trailer right up to the floorboards into the water to launch and pick up the boats. There is no boat ramp. They are just out on the beach, where the water is extremely shallow.

Sunrise at our trailer.

I will do at least one more blog about our stay in Mexico.This is a good stopping point, because it is almost time to go to Happy Hour. Everyday at four o'clock up to 30 people gather on the patio for snacks and a drink. BYOB and some snacks to share. In my next post I will include the activities sheet so that you can see what there is to do here.
