Where I stayed
We arrived at the resort around 1700h, this place is in the middle of nowhere. The resort is on the Sea of Cortez, about six miles from the road. The resort has three floors but no elevator which was really hard for John and Bertha. We had adjoining rooms and the main room had a small kitchen.
The wind was blowing and the temperature was only in the 10c range. The beach stretched for miles both ways but it was too windy to walk on the beach unless you wanted to be sand blasted
During the week we played Mexican bingo and blackjack for fun and to win free drinks. There were not a lot of people at the resort this time of year so Karen and I won free drinks each afternoon.
We were able finally to walk on the beach on the fourth day, wow there were shells everywhere of every type. John was like a kid in a candy store, his walker seat was full by the time we left the beach, and oh we had a lot too.
The weather stayed cool so we didn't get into the water but we did lounge on the beach one afternoon. While on the beach, we saw some pilot whales and even a coyote looking for a seafood meal.
In the evenings after supper we played cards with John and Bertha.
Overall the week was fun and relaxing, just what we were looking for. We headed back to the USA on Saturday and crossed at San Luis. We got back to Yuma around 1800h.
