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.
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.
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.
Some of the non-fishers just enjoyed the view from the dock.
There was earthing on the beach.
I can safely say a good time was had by all.
