Baja trivia*

Did you know the Ricky/Lucy estate still owns property in Baja?
Do you know where?

I think I have said before that Desi & Lucille rented our Del Mar beach house in the 50's until their divorce and then Desi one additional year. Desi bought his own house on the beach just down a ways from ours. It surprises me that they also had a place in Mexico in the 50s?

Ok. Thank you. That is awesome info.
The family still maintains property in Baja as far as I know. But I don't think that will ever change.
Desi prefered Latin culture to Hollywood culture.
So he and his Pals of the era enjoyed fishing for marlin in Baja.
Before Cabo.
That is a hint.

I do not know if this is at their property, but it is not more than a five-minute walk from it!!

Happy Trails!

I can't remember how or why I know this.
Desi prefered his Baja place and spent alot of time there with his friends.
One such friend was Bing Crosby. The Crosby estate still maintains a house there. If the is a plane on the runway usually means someone is "in residence". So don't bother them. There is a usually a plane or 2 parked.
I don't know which house but I think it was near Desi's.
Desi loved to go to La Paz and perform in the clubs. I imagine he was very popular there.
Even though Cuban he fit there very well.

If you have more details, please share.

In Gene Kira's excellent 1999 book, 'The Unforgettable Sea of Cortez', page 103: "The construction and opening of Rancho Las Cruces in 1950 as a fly-in private club catering to such personalities as Desi Arnaz and Bing Crosby was the first such event of the Golden Age, and was the beginning of Baja California's modern tourist industry".

This was before I Love Lucy (1951-1957).

John Wayne was a big Baja fan. He loved Gonzaga Bay in the 60's and 70's. I heard he helped Papa Fernandez get a secure title of the land at Punta Willard/ San Luis Gonzaga.
