We found this nice secluded beach situated right below it
Next stop, San Ignacio. This little oasis is a jewel in the middle of the desert and was the start of new territory for the co-pilot and she was impressed!
It was nice that we were there on a Sunday as there was a lot of activity with many of the locals hanging out and trying to beat the heat in the shade of the town square. We had a nice lunch and toured the mission which was erected in 1696. There is a lot of history here as the original mission was actually founded around 1610 by the Jesuits but was under constant attack by the Portuguese. This is definitely one of my favorite places in Baja and i never spend enough time here.

You do not want to veer of the road anywhere out here or you will be in deep trouble, this place is notorioius for gobbling up the vehicles of drivers who stray off the path!
I hadn't been through here in years and after some bad navigation on my part (it's not just you Maglellan!) I missed locating the easier, less bone jarring way through the flats we ended up taking the dreaded north road in. As bummed as we were this guy was having a worse day than us...

After a good long surf I was ready to break in the new Cook Partner, what better way than some messy tacos al pastor! Thanks again DD, I am loving this bugger! It really got a solid work out on this trip.
With the swell forcast to be on the rise for the next few days things were looking pretty good. The end of another beautiful day...

Why we go:
Scorpion Bay ain't just another pretty name...There's a reason they call it that:

Spotted this sweet rig on the beach while leaving town...
Took a newer south road out of SJ which leads out by Punta San Gregorio and Las Barrancas. Had always wanted to check these places out so this was a plus.

Mama working on her road pop:
The Campo for a couple of nights
Unfortunately the winds were not cooperating, this place perpetually haunts me...grrrrr

Since I have been there last they have installed small palapas all the way up the coast from San Jose del Cabo beyond Cabo Pulmo. Makes it nice for camping or day trips up the coast. We found a nice spot at a well known surf spot and posted up for a couple of days.
We got there late in the afternoon and I went for a surf and stayed out until around 9 pm surfing under a beautiful full moon. Water was 78-80 degrees.
