Loreto April 2021


We went to Loreto and had a couple hours to kill before our friends flew in.








This is a wooden boat filled with plants. So wonderful!










These banners down a path between stores:











Here is the mission church.









These next two photos were crafts in one of the stores.














We were there on a Saturday, so there was a farmer's market with lots of goodies. They had champurrado with tamarind added. It was absolutely delicious (although I prefer thick champurrado). The farmer's market was so quiet, it is so sad.

Packed and ready to go ! :bounce: it's been almost 2 years since I've been down there. I've got my wallet full and plan on having a great time away from the spring snow here in Colorado.

Miss my friends and miss the days on the water.

Viva Baja. :cool:

ligui I have no idea where Santo Domingo is???? It kind of sounds like Baja norte and we are Baja Sur.

We are on our way to Loreto tomorrow to drop off our friends and then all the way down to La Paz to renew my passport. Back next weekend.

I think he meant Santa Rosalia? (paperwork?)

Santo Domingo was once the biggest town on the Magdalena Plain (before Constitución and Insurgentes). It is southwest of Loreto, north of Insurgentes. The back road to San Javier originates near it at Km. 27:
