La Paz
Our trip began and ended in La Paz. We loved La Paz. Everywhere we went, people were friendly. It had beautiful
beaches.

The following map, which was posted on a beach, shows Magdalena Bay on the far left. Our trip began with four days in
La Paz. We then boarded a boat and went south on the Sea of Cortes in the Gulf of Mexico.
For us, the constant sunshine and 80 degree high temperatures left us with a lack of energy, so we also spent a lot of
time in the bars on the beach watching the ocean, people and the wildlife.
One day we drove across the peninsula to Todos Los Santos where we had lunch looking out at the Pacific Ocean.
We spent a lot of time walking the board walk in La Paz along the beach.

Walking up from our hotel one evening, we found ourselves walking through cactus.
A few feet more, we encountered this hooded oriole sitting on a mesquite tree limb.
