We went exploring today and stopped for breakfast at a place down by the Yacht Basin. While we were eating we struck up a conversation with a Mexican couple with two teenagers at the next table. It turns out that he was a Professional Baseball player who played for the L.A. Dodgers for several years until he was injured and went on to be a Baseball Scout. When that ended he became a Probation Officer in Las Angeles. They were here for a funeral.
After breakfast we went on towards Algodones Beach where the 1973 movie “Catch-22” was filmed. When we were here last year there were still a few remnants of the movie set remaining but this year there is a large Condo development going up in near the site. A little further down the same road is the Club Paridisio Resort which is the former San Carlos Club Med. It retains some of it’s former glory but is showing it’s age. The pool area is beautiful but there are very few customers. The rooms are quite expensive by Mexican standards at $1250 Posos a night (about $100), and with so few facilities operating it is not all that appealing.
Tomorrow we are going into Guyamas to have lunch with fellow Bloggers, Brenda And Roy. We have been following each other’s Blogs for some time and when Brenda saw we were in San Carlos she asked if we would like to get together. I am looking forward to it.
Unfortunately, the Internet connection here prevents me from adding photos to the Blog.
