Feel the breeze
Riding dirt in a skirt
Eat my dust
The road dead ended at this tree where there was rumored to be a hiking trail to a waterfall and swimming hole. We parked the vehicles and went off on foot in search of this fabled place.
This eerie landscape looks a bit dry…
We may as well be hunting for unicorns.
The bikes waited patiently for us to return
We know where to find some water…back to the beach! There’s a little town called La Manga up some dirt roads, but first a stop off at some set ruins from the film Catch 22.
I think they are meant to look Greek, but Alan seems to have it confused with Egypt.
We arrive at La Manga and have lunch at this 5 star restaurant
My favorite picture of Roger (carnivore) and Christine (vegetarian)
Quiet little beach at La Manga
We’re all so full we siesta for a bit, lounging on bikes and buggies as locals go about their business. Alan sets out exploring the dirt road around the town and I eventually go out looking for him.
Seems he found some deep sand!
His super moto tires aren’t very good in the sand so I offer to let him ride the Zeb. He zooms off and dumps it down the beach. In his defense, the dirt was -really- deep and powdery.
He was initially stuck under the bike. I jumped in the back of the buggy to come rescue him…but the buggy just sunk into the sand! Alan got out from under and picked it up before I could get a picture.
A local came to help us dig the buggy out.
We gave him a beer as thanks.
The sun is starting to go down, so we head back home.
I received a message from a couchsurfer up in Hermosillo to come stay with him, so we opt to head up there in the morning.
