Monday morning we had to spend a couple of hours exploring this beautiful Baja port city. But by lunch we were on our bikes headed south. Thirty kilometers down the road found us at an intersection. La Bufadora was 22 kilometers to the west. Ricardo headed that way. He knew about La Bufadora and was eager to see it. La Bufadora, one of Baja's many natural wonders.
Tucked in a cove of huge stone islands and crashing Pacific waves, La Bufadora is a spectacular Pacific blowhole. Shooting water some 60 meters in the sky, it looks like a giant ocean geyser. We were so in awe that we have posted several photographs for you.
Finally back on the bikes, we headed south about three hundred kilometers to El Rosario. Through mountains and valleys, we passed through beautiful grape vineyards for an hour or two. We were in Mexico's great wine country.
Four hours later we pulled into El Rosario, "the gateway to the wild Baja". We quickly booked a suite of rooms at the Baja Cactus Motel. A great suite for only a total of $36. And right next door was the famous Mama Espinosa's Restaurant and Cantina. Right on the route of the famous Baja Road Races, Mama's has long been the roost of celebrity road racers like Steve McQueen, James Garner, Parnelli Jones, Paul Newman....maybe even Ricardo Collado. The ambiance, company and food were all fantastic.
Tomorrow will come early and it will be "muy frio". We will be off about 500 kilometers through treacherous mountain desert to San Ignacio.
