Unplugged in Loreto, Mexico - Part I

I've been off the grid!  No phone calls, email, not much computer or television for a week!  It was hard, but highly recommended.  We decided to travel to Loreto, Mexico for several different reasons.  Relaxation and a form of decompression, if you will, was the main reason.  So, if you need to relax and unwind, this is the place.

In Loreto, you can be as busy (or not) as you want to be.  If you love fishing you'll be excited.  If you like food, there are many options here.  If you love to photograph the beauty, and the not so beautiful, you'll be "snapping away" as I did.

My view every morning
The days begin on a tranquil note each morning as the sun peeks over the Isla del Carmen. The dazzling light of daybreak is my favorite time to soak up the beauty.   I have been known to wander onto the beaches of Mexico to get that glorious sunrise picture.  That's probably not the safest thing to do!   But, I can't resist a photo opportunity for a perfect sunrise.  Once the sun takes shape and slowly floats higher, it begins to warm the day and my soul.  I can't think of a better way to ease into the day.  Of course, coffee and breakfast in bed is right up there, too!

It's not easy to sum up a travel destination in a few paragraphs, so I'll be revealing my thoughts over the next few posts. I'll mention the food, the people and a special couple that we finally met at their lovely home in Loreto.   Having flown in late last night, I need time to "digest" and reflect on my quick trip to this treasure on the Baja.  More to come....


  1. Great start, can't wait to read the rest and see your beautiful pictures. And to hear about that special couple.....we'd like to meet them too. It has been in the mid 80s...nice!

  2. From the pictures I am sure you had a lovely time there!
