Skips right by Loreto. Must have been a pretty small town in 1958.

It was a small town in the 60s...but they had an airstrip. Ed Tabor's Flying Sportsman Lodge was there as well.
I loved to hang out there with his daughter, Nancy.
The carneceria on the plaza would close down when they got a report of edible road-kill and go get it.

I know there are several places with the same name in Baja. I wasn't aware of a Santa Rosalillita at Bahia Concepcion, or really any town or village there. Then I found that a more recent map has that place as "Santa Rosalita."

I noted that the "Rosarito" just south is "El Rosarito." I think there is another Rosarito somewhere around Guerrero Negro or somewhere around there as well.

Santa Rosa, Santa Rosalia, Santa Rosalita, Santa Rosalillita...

And Saint Francis sure got his name thrown all over the map!

If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

It is Santa Rosalia modified to Little Santa Roaslia or Roalillita.
The place most know, on the Pacific, north of Guerrero Negro as Santa Roaslillita was Santa Rosalia before automobiles made the time between the fishing bay/ surfer point and the French copper town, shorter, so the name was modified.

1941 (Rosalia Point):

1962 (Bahia Santa Rosalillita):
