Campo Lorenzo has 5 full time residents. The part timers come in waves, some come only a few weeks a year and others come for the summer to escape the heat of Baja Sur. It got pretty lonely here with only 5 full time residents in winter/spring and we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived back from Baja Sur to a full Campo. The old saying goes, “There is no place like home”, it sure was nice to be home again after 7 weeks on the road.
The Campo got together for a huge Mexican Luau (pig roast) on 4th of July weekend. There seemed to be a slight mix up between kilograms vs pounds and we ended up with a bigger pig than expected.
The summer was full of mix-n-mingles, campfires, fishing tournaments and CanAm/Razr/Quad rides with various neighbors, I even tried oysters for the first time. We rode up to the top of the volcano and had amazing views of the bay and ocean.
Since the weather was nice, Dave and I did a lot of exploring around town and also on some of the various back dirt roads near the Campo. On this day, as we were driving by an abandoned building I saw these intense eyes staring at me and I told Dave to stop. I didn’t dare get out of the car for fear that the owl would fly away, so I had to take the pictures from inside the car.
I love street art. For those that know me know I absolutely love Dia de Los Muertos and sugar skulls. This was a happy find while running errands in town.
I love tacos, that is no secret, but we finally found our favorite taco spot in town called Los Pablanos.
Since our backyard is wet grasslands we always have a wide variety of birds to watch. This osprey has made this pole his home for the last few weeks and it has been amazing to watch him.
