2014 trip to Mexico-5

Last night we had a great seafood dinner with a couple from California. They were on the way home and answered all of our questions. We left Mario's around 10 am, we knew we have only about 4 hours of driving to Mulege. The road is much better but before Santa Rosalia it has such a steep slope it would be probably illegal everywhere north of the border. We stopped in Santa Rosalia to see the church designed by Eiffel when the city was a French mining town. Just a few minutes from the church is the French bakery, another must see, it's been there since 1901, Another 45 minutes to Mulege, filled up the tanks and off to Santispac. For many Canadians and Americans it is as far as they go, because it's beautiful and at Bahaia Concepcion there are 12 beaches. Early in the afternoon we are parked 10 feet from the beach between 2 restaurants, the temperature is 26 C and the water is so unbelievably clear. Since we have only one month we are going to stay here as long as we can and head north in February, I have to be back to work on the 17th. At 8 $/night it is Paradise on Earth and we enjoy every minute here. There are so many Canadians here somebody suggested we should pull up our flag and declare the place Canadian Territory.

The long and very steep slope going down to Santa Rosalia, aka the Grade to Hell. A few more minutes and you can see the Sea of Cortez.

The church in Santa Rosalia designed by Gustav Eiffel, the same man who built the Eiffel Tower.

45 minutes later we are in Mulege, it is going to be the nearest place where we can shop, get gas and food.

10 feet from the crystal clear water, as I said: Paradise on Earth.
