I've decided to leave Tecolote, can't believe I've been here a whole month. Decide to take one last ride around the western point. While riding on a rough dirt rode to a remote fishing camp, a couple mean dogs started chasing me, it was a tough section of road and it took me awhile to out run them. I sure wish I was wearing my boots. So I decide I'll out smart them and ride back to camp via different paths. I end up breaking my own trail for miles, through deep silty sand, rock strewn beaches and some awful downhills. End up with torn up sneakers, an overheated bike, thirst and hunger; but had a magnificent sunset. Got back to camp well after dark and totally exhausted.
Be leaving tomorrow morning, it will be a Saturday, the beach will be swarming with Mexican families from La Paz, with their competing stereos, dogs, quads and beach games. That's ok too, it but kind of blows the laid back relaxation mode I cherish. Moving south to Los Barriles/Cabo Pulmo area.

The beach here faces directly east, so every morning there is a group of us that walk thru camp in the twilight to the beachfront deck, sit and drink coffee while watching the sunrise. It's nothing but us old geezers, it's kind of like we are all celebrating the fact that we made it through another night, and safely awoke to another new dawn.

Looked at some Real Estate today. Possibly just a lot for my RV, or maybe a modest house. Just checking the market. There are a lot of $600K to $3million houses on the beach or hillside views of the water, they are not selling at all. Humm, maybe there is a recession going on in the States? Maybe I can find a bargain somehow though. Re-stocked my shrimp supply, a kilo for 180P, from a roadside vendor, good stuff, bought 2 kilos.
