Puertecitos Camping Trip Feb 2015

We meet at the Pemex at 8:00 am.  All rigs were filled to the brim with gear.  The day was perfect, as usual, and we made the 1 1/2 hour drive south to the pueblo of Puertecitos.  001

The camp hostess, Maria, greeted us as we entered the front gate.  They close it at 10 pm.  Camping was $20/night per vehicle.  The banos were nice and we camped overlooking the small bay.???????????????????????????????

Tents were set up, beds made and coolers deployed.  Some people went directly to the dock to toss an offering to the sea in hopes of catching the big one.  As is traditional, Masanee caught the first fish and it was a dandy trigger fish complete with significant teeth.?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

The dogs found this event very interesting as well.???????????????????????????????

Then the hot springs were ready at about 2 hours before high tide, and we hopped in.  The beauty of the Sea of Cortez combined with the healing magical waters is not to be missed.  We loved it so much we came back 2 hrs. after high tide to try it again.  The sea splashed over the rocks to cool the otherwise too hot pools to just right.  One could move around to find warmer or cooler spots. ??????????????????????????????? The birders were rewarded with Frigates, Egrets, Boobies, Gulls and Herons.  Dolphins were seen and fish were jumping.  Speaking of fishing the fishers were well rewarded.  And everyone enjoyed the fish BBQ and tacos in the evening.  108???????????????????????????????

Some of the non-fishers just enjoyed the view from the dock.


There was earthing on the beach.


and we walked out into the once underwater part of the bay at low tide.???????????????????????????????

I can safely say a good time was had by all.
