I think it's ironic that I wanted so much to get to the beach this year and had given up hope after two failed attempts............and now it appears, that I'll be heading to San Carlos and the Sea of Cortez for the month of April. Life works in mysterious ways, to put it mildly.
So, about four or five months ago I saw a small article on the World Heritage designation of that area and the magnificent wildlife and plant life. I didn't save the article, darn. BUT I have read as much as I could find on the net, which isn't much, and I'm blown away at what I have read.
Who knew? Probably all of you and not me, ha. The multiple species of whale that spend time in that area and the size of the sea - over 800 miles long and over 100 miles wide is all mind boggling.
There are two books by Steinbeck that I went to the library (bibiliotecha) to see if they had - Sea of Cortez, A Literary Journal and The Log from the Sea of Cortez. Well they didn't have them so I went on Amazon and one of the books used is over $800US! Yikes - guess I won't be reading those books. Actually I didn't find very many books dedicated to the area, surprisingly.
So, another adventure will begin.........I'll report back and if you have explored that area, let me know all about it. First hand accounts are always THE BEST.
