After our time on the water with the grey whales in Laguna Ojo de Liebre, we played for an afternoon on the nearby salt flats.
The world's largest salt extraction operation is located in Baja, on the west coast of the peninsula, close to Guerrero Negro, the town on the state line between Baja Norte and Baja Sur, a day's drive from where I am living.

... Following morning Lucy cooked us a delicious breakfast and loaded us up with pasteries and we headed north to San Ignacius, the home of the friendly whales. I could not leave Baja without seeing them up close again. And they did not disappoint, they breached and one mum and calf came right up to the boat and mum sprayed us with water. We also saw whales mating, what a sight. Talk about Mr Grey, he was enoromous- all body ...
