Todos Santos à El Pescadero
A relaxing morning in Todos Santos; coffee by the courtyard pool, slowly gathering things to pack. Walked around the town as shops opened, stopped into a ‘fancy’ looking place for breakfast, which was both delicious and plentiful.
After packing up, but before leaving Todos Santos we drove to a nearby beachfront. More off-roading, but finally reaching the Pacific shore was worth the little drive. Enormous waves and, off in the not-too-distant water, jumping whales. Only a few people at this particular beach, and a few more on horses; quiet, slow-paced, relaxing.
The road to our next stop, Casitas El Salitral south of El Pescadero was quick—25’ drive. We missed our place, of course, because it’s accessed via a dirt road…but it’s a little oasis, really. The owners began work on this ~2010, after losing their 24 yr old daughter to cancer. The retired, bought this land and slowly but surely built a place for themselves to live, then these spacious, one-room, round cabanas.
There are six of these, as well as the main house where the owners live. We’re about ½ mile off the highway, basically in a pretty desolate area. But they’ve made a beautiful little spread; separate kitchens outside, a swimming pool…all quite lovely. Last night we got some provisions and Tim/Tara cooked a delicious dinner in this kitchen, then we settled in next to a campfire outside our cabana. All leading to a cool, comfortable, airy night’s sleep.
