Bahia Concepción

After San Juanico, we sailed/motored about 51 miles to Bahia Concepción. It took 9 hours, but we enjoyed the wildlife along the way, read our books, and tried (unsuccessfully) to catch fish.

Bahia Concepción is a huge bay with lots of islands, anchorages, beaches, etc. We spent one night in Bahia Santo Domingo and then over to Playa Coyote. This is an interesting place. We are right next to Highway 1. There is one small store, two restaurants, and hundreds of houses, RV's, palapas - everywhere! We are definitely in civilization - even get wireless on the boat. How funny is that?

For an adventure, we hitchhiked to the town of Mulege', which is 13 miles north. A local picked us up and let us ride in the back of the truck. It was a little scary. Doug swears he was practicing for Nascar as he flew around the curves and cliffs! As soon as we crawled out of the back, we went searching for margaritas to calm our nerves.

Needless to say, we chose alternate transportation for the return trip. The autobus was great - AC, plus a movie!

We enjoyed Mulege' and highly recommend the Enchiladas Azteca at Doney's, plus the margaritas.

We plan on spending more time in Mulege' playing tourist and provisioning before continuing our migration North. We will be taking the autobus again!

Doug, it ain't the 70's anymore. People aren't just high, they are mental. Please, no more hitch-hiking adventures!

Saul's Tienda has some awesome stuff!
American products and things that are hard to find.
Ha ha on the hitch-hiking! We did that in San Blas. And I would NEVER do it in the USA - only here and maybe Costa Rica.
