... and one I doubt we will ever repeat.
We moved onto a secluded and uninhabited beach for lunch (Ceviche - Nice!) and swam in the clear water and sunbathed on the picture postcard beach surrounded by hills of cactii. Life is good! To finish the tour we viewed a nesting area for the local birds, literally thousands on a strip no longer than 100 metres and 2/ 3 metres wide of bush above the water. All in all a very good day!

Update two from Mexico at last. This place is frickin awesome!!!!
Our next stop after the beach was a small town called El Rosario. Not much there, but we had the good fortune to find a nice cheap campground that we shared with one other couple. These guys, The Goodmans, are seasoned travellers of Mexico and gave us endless advice on what to see and do on our way down the Baja. Beats reading a lonely planet any day!
