Here’s a Shout Out to my Friends!

Breaking speed limits, eating fresh seafood and shooting (photographing) the gray whales in Baja, Mexico.

This photograph was from an amazing whale watching road trip I took with my friends, Randy and Florence, to the San Ignacio Lagoon in Baja, Mexico back in 2009. We broke speed limits on Mexico Highway 1 also known as the Transpeninsular Highway. The highway begins in the North in Tijuana and ends at the Baja peninsula in Cabo San Lucas.

It was a 14 hour drive from San Diego to the San Ignacio Lagoon. We divided the drive up over two days and enjoyed one too many cervezas and delicious seafood along the way.

On the first day one we stopped in Ensenada, Baja Mexico. Known as the "Cinderella of the Pacific,” Ensenada is located 70 miles south of the international border, a 90-minute drive from San Diego.

Just across from the fish market in Ensenada are a row of restaurants that serve (would you guess) fresh fish and shrimp tacos. Competition is fierce among the restaurants so they deploy barkers to grab potential customers from the street to come into their restaurants.

These two were dueling it out to see who would earn our business.

The guy with the big, fat mouth won.

Wishing all my friends a wonderful and blessed Christmas!!!

Happy Travels!
