Elias Calles, Baja Sur, Mexico


Thought I'd share a little about our time here in Elias Calles. It's a great little place.

Geez. It's amazing how pricey real estate is in the area between Todos Santos and El Pescadero.

Nice, tonight I enjoyed a Stone Arrogant Bastard, Go To IPA, Saison, and Pale Ale....after a few Pacificos of course.....off to Cabo tomorrow.

And yes, it's unreal how expensive land is in this area:!:

Elias Calle isn't between Todos Santos and El Pescadero. I don't think real estate in the area is particularly over priced unless you want beachfront or a lot in an exclusive gringo enclave. Nice fotos Bajaboy!

Zac, if you ever get to the ruins at San Jacinto (east of Elias Calles), I would appreciate seeing new photos of the mission visita ruins there to compare with those taken by Jack Swords a dozen years ago...
Here are some of his photos and the GPS he gave me for them:

David, my buddy's son leads hiking trips so I'll ask him. We plan on doing a longer hike next summer into some more remote areas. There are a lot of cool options around here.

Great...

So what happened with La Cocina Pacifica (has it turned into any kind of b&b or lodge) and does anyone hear from Max and Lynn (Bajabus) anymore?

As of last summer, Jim and Susan still own the place but only as a private residence. We were invited over last year but couldn't make it.

I'm not sure about Max. I'll ask my friends later today.

Enjoying relatively mild weather here. Heading back to Loreto tomorrow and then Bahia Asuncion.

So, I was just a few miles off. But my statement about pricey real estate stands.

Are you gay? Only reason I can fathom as to why you make it a crusade to write negative posts about me for my attention. I'm not gay, so you can look elsewhere.
