We finally made to Loreto after a five hour connecting flight delay in L.A. That was painful. We flew into Loreto last night just before a beautiful sunset. Very nice conditions today. Absolutely beautiful. We heard there were some blue whales in the area yesterday and almost went out this morning to see what’s up. But we really didn’t get up early enough. We still could have pulled it off. But we didn’t want to rush around and risk getting caught in the dark on our way to San Ignacio.
It’s supposed to be about a 4-5 hour drive from Loreto. So we decided to have a relaxing morning walk, have some breakfast and make our way to the Pacific side and the town of San Ignacio to where Dorris has a friend who owns a historic bed and breakfast in the town of San Ignacio.
We also plan on doing some free-diving somewhere along the way north in the Sea of Cortez side before we have to start heading west to San Ignacio.
Tomorrow we’re looking forward to hopefully hanging out with some friendly gray whale mother’s and calves. We have our fingers crossed. Stay tuned for photo’s and video.
