Happy Saturday ladies! Is there anything more relaxing than a deserted beach? We found a stunning one yesterday and it was a tonic for the soul. This entire vacation has felt like one long weekend. The pace of life here in Loreto Bay is slow, slow, slow.
Friday, we drove north to this pristine, white sandy beach.
There’s nothing here but a few palapas on the beach and a couple of tourists. We set up in the palapa on the right and ate our picnic lunch.
The gentle breezes were a challenge for my hat and I had to keep it in a death grip. Luckily it’s woven from a paper/polyester blend that only looks like straw but is very flexible. That’s why I was able to pack and fold this hat into my suitcase and have it look crisp when I arrived here.
The breezes were gentle and the rustling of the palapas fronds soon had me relaxed to the snooze point.
After a couple of hours, we headed home. I knew what was coming because we’d been stopped and questioned on the ride north.
A military checkpoint on the road. There were about 15 young men wandering around with machine guns slung over their shoulders. They asked where we were from, going and why.
Of course being a blogger, I had my cell phone out to capture the experience with pictures. This fellow smiled at me and said no…so I quickly stowed my phone.
This hat is several years old but there are lots available in this material. It feels almost indestructible but looks like a classic straw hat. My hat, sarong, and white cardigan all have sun protection factor built right into the fabric. I take my sun protection seriously, do you?
