For those of you who don't know, I just returned from a fantastic vacation in southern Baja, Mexico. I had never been before, and it was incredible. I was struck most of all by the totally foreign landscape - completely arid desert everywhere!
Despite seeming desolate at first, there were so many kinds of amazing plants growing everywhere!
And the cacti were enourmous! I had to take this photo with the car in it, just to capture the size of this thing!
Even the road to the beach looked like this.
Luckily, being a long peninsula, there was coastline everwhere, so tons of beaches...
...and lots of surfing! (not that I can surf at all, but I sure am good at watching!)
Ahh, another day at the beach (actually at a beautiful oasis of palm trees).
The town we spent most of the week in was Todos Santos - totally charming, dusty, quiet little place with absolutely perfect weather all the time.
More Todos Santos...
High five for the use of ridiculously bright colours on houses!
I miss you already, Mexico!
