Under the Baja Sun: January comes to an end

Submitted by Al Graichen It’s hard to believe that many of us celebrated the new year at our house and many more at La Mision and other venues in Loreto only 3 short weeks ago. The year is already going by too fast and I’m continuing to chase contractors to finish construction fixes that my…

Another week in the Sun, Sand and Wind

Submitted by Al Graichen It’s difficult to believe I’ve been in Loreto for a month already. Its not so difficult for Tanni as she has to go home this weekend while I get another month to enjoy chasing contractors that are repairing our house. Ah, the joys of long distance home ownership. With any luck…

Loreto Estuary surprise

Submitted by Al Graichen Many of the “kids” in for Christmas were seen off at the Loreto airport yesterday afternoon. As both Vista del Mar and Del Borracho were closed, the Porto Bella restaurant at the airport looked like an average day in LAX or SFO – full of people. Pedro was very pleased to…

The best hamburger in Loreto?

The best hamburger in Loreto?

Del Borracho serves up a mean burger & fries, right in the middle of the desert outside Loreto. All the better with live, rocking music. Their breakfasts are also hearty, delicious. What do you think? Best burger in town… or others you like?

First impressions on a Loreto winter day

Submitted by Al Graichen. Whew, day one of 60 or so in Loreto. It’s good to be back, but I’m still getting used to the changes we’ve made to the Holiday Season. The day started great; about 68 in early morning rising to almost 80 at the peak and dropping to 70 by 8:00 for…

Return to Loreto

Submitted by Jane Lurie. We have finally made it back to Loreto after a 6 month absence. We drove down with our Honda CRV packed like a stuff bag, with two folding chairs, a roll of screening material, a rug and a roll of tulle on the roof….not quite the Clampetts (AKA the Jacksons) but…
