Oh, I like this thread.

Here's an image looking West, from underneath the bridge, in Mulege - BEFORE Hurricane John (I think that was the big one). I find this very interesting!

It's always wonderful to see your pictures, David. Thank you!

Oh, and then I discovered pages 2 and 3!!!!!!!

The burning question of the day for the real Paulina: Was she REALLY wearing that great dress and marvelous flats when she caught the sailfish????

And thank you BOb H, Ron and Bajacat-- all just beautiful!

Paula,

Yes she was. That was my grandmother. Somewhere I have the photo of her in that same outfit, with the addition of a fighting belt, as the pangero held the fish by it's beak (or is it a bill) as it hung over the side of the rail. She was holding onto it's sail in one hand, her rod in the other. She was so proud.

I need to find that photo.

I really like this thread. I hope to see more of what "pure baja" looks like through other people's eyes.

P<*)))>{

You've been holding out on us, Paulina. Those are some truly great shots.

In fact, this is turning out to be a great thread. One of the best in months.

KEEP IT GOING, NOMADS !!!!

Stimbo, loved it.

Tripledigitken, thank you for your photo. Pepe Smith looking back towards the town of Bahia de Los Angeles...made me smile tonight.

Igor, I've had my reasons lately. Good to hear from you.

My memory of the Clam Man;

Sitting on the back of my dad's motorcycle, my arms wrapped around his waist as I patiently waited for their never ending conversations to end.

The two of them looked like they could be brothers and laughed as if they were.

My dad was a large man as well, so the Clam man was very helpful in guiding my dad to a local man who made him a custom leather, desert riding outfit; a vest of sorts with long sleeves that would protect his arms from the cactus, half chaps that would add protection to his lower legs, and a hat large enough to fit his head.

My dad would look forward to our visits to San Felipe which meant afternoons visiting with the Clam Man. It was a sad trip when my dad found out that he had passed.

This struck a cord in me! A classic memory.

My world at 7 seemed to have many such moments. They seemed to arrive at the end of their parties as I waited for them to say their goodbyes.
