Playa Tecolote

About 20-30 minute drive past La Paz is a boon docking (free but limited/no amenities) beach, beautiful but for us and this current weather pattern it turned out to be too windy.  We did fit in one day of fun in the sun as you’ll see in the below photos.

Finding our way thru all the sand and finding a place to tuck away out of the wind best we can is a bit of a challenge.

The children donned wet suits and had a ball in the waves.  Since our camera lens broke we can’t get nice close-ups with the camera on our phones so the swimming pics are the pitts so I didn’t upload any of them.

Sand and burrs are everywhere here.  Both get in your shoes, your clothes, your bedding.  Can’t say its been the best experience staying at Tecolote, but we plan to return here on our way north again because we know this is a beautiful place with great potential for our family.

One thing learned….don’t wear sandals when going potty or you’re likely to step right out of one of them and get a footful of burrs and blood…..believe you me.

We set up kitchen on the leeward side.  The ladders provided 2 extra seats for us.

  1. All that sand brings back memories of Prince Ed Isle and the red sand dunes found there. And remember how at Raymur the wind would lift the sand all the way up onto our second story back porch, into the windows and all the way into our beds?! At least camping it is a little more expected and accepted.

    Mitch I must say has beautiful hair, and it’s longer than mine!!!

    • Sand gets in the 2nd storey windows here, too. And the little pop-out van window left open so sleepers in the van get some fresh air, even though the heavy black tent covers hang down over top the wind still blows sand in there. This morning when leaving the shoes that fell out had to be retrieved from the other side of the van it was so windy.

      Mitch gets lots of compliments/comments on his hair. Thinking we should put it in dreadlocks.

      • If he gets dreads, I think he should get the small ones like Caleb’s from XP. They’re more expensive because there’s more of them, but they don’t look as messy as the bigger ones.

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