A day at the coast

It’s that time of year when we have the closest thing to a slow point in our business….the family has all returned to the states, most of the work on the boats is done, and very few of our management boats are around right now. Time for a short road (or off road as it might be) to the other side of the Baja. We have taken a few short exploratory trips, mostly to make sure that the roads are OK for hauling the trailer.



As a preview for upcoming pictures from the Pacific side of the Baja, here are a few of the shots that I took last weekend on our quick day trips…


I have to start out with a fun find…a Wandering Tattler!! I was up high on a dune above the crashing waves when I spotted this single Tattler sitting right next to the water’s edge…hum how to get down there. It turned out easier than I had expected, and the Tattler was quite patient.


Sanderlings, Black-bellied plovers, Semipalmated Plovers, Least Sandpipers, Savannah Sparrows, Vesper Sparrows, Lark Sparrows, Osprey, Frigates, Ring-billed and Yellow footed gulls, Brown Pelicans, Sparrow Hawks, Red-tailed Hawks, Harris Hawks, just to name a few of what we got to see….
And now to why you are actually here!!  The pictures…LOL

Ok, so now we will see what I can find to shoot with a whole weekend over there. We will be gone from Friday afternoon (Jeanne's Birthday) and return Sunday evening.  Have a great week
