Sinaloa

And so.

With the federali barring the train to the Copper Canyon, we decided to just head south. If we return to the US via Arizona, we’ll stop at Creel and the Canyon from the north.

Sinaloa is farmland. And us being farmers, well, it felt pretty comfortable to be driving by all the fields of various crops.

Even crops of brick!

BIG. It’s all so BIG. And HOT. We started boiling with the humidity and sun, like where it wasn’t just funny anymore to see all the locals in their tight jeans, long-sleeved shirts, fur boots and woolen scarves and hats; it was absolutely incomprehensible. It made me cranky.

We stopped at Celestino Gasca – little village on the coast that is famous for oysters.

We didn’t stop in the village – we were too hot, the kids were R-E-A-D-Y to be unleashed from their car seat tethers, and we needed to set up camp. So we went to the RV parks around and checked them out, ended up with Punta San Miguel.

It was fine with me – I’m deaf! – but I think Mikey got kind of annoyed by the music at 1 in the morning. His tough luck, huh

We stayed a couple of days.

When the party (finally) broke up, we went swimming and hung out by the beach. It was pretty cool – oysters all over the place, sea anemones and limpets in the tidal pools. The kids had a lot of fun.

Igot a little hesitant about exploring too much because 1. Mikey saw a HUGE snake in the grass not that far from our camp and 2. when I went to fetch a ball that Kianna lost, I came upon a┬átree. It felt like something in the tree was moving, so I looked closer and OH MY GOD, the whole interior of the tree was absolutely crawling with millions, and I’m talking MILLIONS of spiders. Never seen so many spiders in my life, it was like the tree was alive with ’em.

Too much for me, but definitely like a big ole’ ‘WELCOME BACK TO THE TROPICS

Mac-Q was trying to pick a flower and put it behind his ear (as is his wont), but wear his hat at the same time. We told him to put his flower IN his hat, meaning in the hat band.

This is what happened:

  • Thanks again Meriah! Wow all that sun looks beautiful compared to these grey skies in the great white north (that isn’t quite so white yet…)

    • oh wow!! that’s SO COOL! the farmer wasn’t anywhere around when we were there. but wow, I wish he had been.
      What did you think of Celestino Gasca? And where did you boondock, just off the road or did you find a way to boondock on the beach?

      • We were camped on the beach both times. First time tucked down beside an arroyo at the end of the beach road. Last month we took a little ‘driveway’ down to the beach, some private property we hid on. Not having a trailer we can get in to spots we’d otherwise miss.

I'm opinionated, friendly & chatty... I hope you are, too
