Our (2 Week) Kayak Trip

I'm sure I could write an entirely separate blog about the role kayaking has played into our lives here in La Paz.  But that's for another day.  I wanted to share some pics of our self-sustained, 14 day kayak trip that E and I did last May 2011.  We paddled from Loreto to the outskirts of La Paz Bay (about 130 miles).  Physically, it was the hardest thing I've ever done and believe me, there were mornings and nights I cried in pain or frustration that I couldn't go on. But we had no serious injuries, no dehydration (our #1 worry) and no run-ins with dangerous marine life. Beautiful views, secluded beaches to camp on every night (my favorite part of the day!) and the best part: sometimes we wouldn't see another human being for days at a time. Incredible!

Views of Danzante Island, off the coast of Loreto - after shoving off from Loreto Malecon. Day #1

Bruise on my left leg, don't remember from what but we got to watch it change colors all trip long!

Docked for lunch! Our favorite lunch spot, hands down.
We watched mobula rays jumping out of the water during our canned tuna lunch.
