We’ve been here for the fastest two weeks of my life. I remember when we first came to Todos Santos how everything slid by nice and slow and syrupy, time just seemed to ooze along at a wondrously slow pace. Two months seemed like a long time. If this two weeks is any indication of this visit’s temporal velocity, I’d better hurry up and have some fun.

Today was our first trip to the beach, fourteen days in paradise and no beach till today, amazing. But it was a better than average beach day, I must say. First there was the terrifying ride to Playa Las Palmas. The road to this beach has always been an interesting experience, but this year the grooves are way groovier and the gullies are gullier, possibly a result of the prodigious amounts of rain (for Baja). Anyway Gail thought we would turn over, but I assured her that it was unlikely, travelling at two miles per hour as we were. But we got there and it was grand. Show and tell.

There was a solitary egret here so I followed him around till he got nervous.

Egret on the rocks please.

I identified with this pelican. Fed up with the rat race out hustling fish on the high seas. Just find a nice little inlet where you can relax in the sun and just flop over on your side every once in a while to let the minnows swim into your mouth. Living on less and loving it. A retired pelican.

There were five horses at the beach Here are two) who had apparently ditched their humans for a fun day gamboling at the beach and begging for food. Gail gave one a watermelon rind.

Bet you didn't know there were trolls in Mexico.

I am glad we had such a good time today because if I can’t convince Gail that the car will absolutely not flip over on the road this may be our last trip to Playa Las Palmas. We made it home safely sun-burned. Aldo was ready for a nap and so was his Mongrel friend.
