California - Baja That is

We spent a few days at Silver Strand, which now has electric and water. You can still pull forward and drag the hoses under the MH. Beautiful view and sunshine though a little cool. Pictures below include some sunset pictures from the desert as well as the beach. Fantastic at both places.




We took the short drive to Chula Vista for the pre rally for our Mexican Connection Chapter 8 Trip to Ensenada. There were quite a few people we knew from our two previous trips with this Escapees group to Mexico as well as many new people. Savannah was happy to see her boyfriend, Reggie. She ran right up to him which she doesn't usually do to other dogs. Miles and Ella were there as well as well as their humans :) We spent the two days in meetings, including one with with the small group we will travel with down to Ensenada. They break it up in small groups so the whole group of rvs are crossing the border all together. We had a hamburger dinner one night and a happy hour the first night with some of the group we hung out with last year.


On the fifth of February, we made the easy border crossing. There had been a major slide on the toll road and so we spent most of the trip down on the free road. A little windy through the mountains but not bad.



We had no problems going through Ensenada to Estero Beach Hotel/Resort , where we are staying. There is a hotel as well as a rv campground. Our 49 rigs filled up the place. Some had to boondock in the parking area right next the the camp sites. We are not exactly right on the water as there is a large marsh in front of the campground but the first of the two rows of sites do have a view of the water. There is a nice walkway that goes to the room where we will have meetings and happy hours and then on to the restaurant which are across from the water. A nice resort, though we liked our sites right on the beach and water at San Felipe better.

Our first night included happy hour where we got some information on activities for the week. Tomorrow is a tour of the city which I will discuss in the next post. We had a delicious buffet dinner of tacos, enchilladas and chile rellanos with rice and beans. Oh, and some yummy margaritas. There was a mariachi band and we definitely felt we are in Mexico.

Stay tune for the adventures to come.
