We went to a camp site that Kyle had been to many times before, we sat & spoke with his friend Antonio who owned the campsite & surrounding property. He was a very well spoken intelligent man & we spoke for a long time about many things ranging from real estate to international politics. It was a very interesting conversation. Even though we spoke with Antoinio for a long time it seemed to have passed very quickly. Almost too quickly.
We moved to set up our camp site near two of the biggest palapas on the property. They came equipped with these interesting handmade cots. Which came in handy for a quick nap. It was very hot here much more so then in some parts of the desert which seemed weird because we were on the water. But I guess that is just how it is in Mexico in August.
After some exploring & trying to catch a glimpse of the whales that Antoinio & his wife had seen by the lighthouse down the beach and having no luck we headed back to fall asleep under the stars in our handmade cots.
The next morning I opened my eyes to catch the most beautiful sunrise I had ever seen (granted I haven't seen many LOL I am usually sleeping). My mesmerized glare at this beautiful scene was interrupted by a seagull squawking, which made me laugh out loud because it sounded like he was laughing.
We moved on from our campsite down the road a bit to a small beach that had crystal clear water so we could do some snorkeling. It really is a whole different world in the sea. It was so enchanting. I could have stayed down there for hours. But you start to get wrinkly after a while. I got to see a bulls eye puffer aka fu go, bass, starfish, stingrays, needlefish & a bunch of other really cool things. It was so much fun.
After snorkeling we moved on to another area of the beach so we could do some fishing. On the second cast out Kyle caught a yellow tail aka jurel. A fish he had been trying to catch for years. He wasn't exactly sure what he had caught because it is thought that you can not catch a yellow tail from the shoreline.
The next day we headed into town so I could submit my video how to kayak video to the Travel Channel. They had accepted my submission & I was very excited to make the suggested changes & get it back to them ASAP.
The rest of the time in the Bay of LA was pretty lazy it was way too hot to move. Even if you didn't move you were hot.
