Coco served us coffee, and had himself a beer. We headed back the same rocky road as the day before, but turned left just shy of Hwy 1. This lead us over a dry lake bed, which was very cool (and dusty) to ride over. Our destination was Mulege, a small town on the Sea of Cortez. Hwy 1 took us once again through different kind of scenery, from flat, to rock with cactus, to bare canyons until we dropped down and reached the Sea of Cortez. The temps were sizzling hot, but thanks to my modular helmet, Heat-Out" underwear and mesh jacket/riding pants, I was able to stay cool. It turned out being a very good investment.
In the early evening hours, we arrived in Mulege and stayed in a small hotel in the town center called " Las Casitas".
We walked about 30 min (we were told it is only a 15 min walk) to a restaurant called "El Patron" which is right on the ocean. Half way, we stopped for a beer.
I opted for fried fish with a garlig sauce which was ok. Then a long walk back in the dark.
We're told that Hurricane Norbert will hit Cabo and moves northwest. The original plan was to be in Cabo Saturday and Lori would fly down for a rendezvous over the weekend. But, the way things are looking now, that won't happen. Hurricane Norbert has passed Cabo and is heading north. However, it has been raining here in Mulege all day. Oh, did I mention, there was a power outage for couple of hours this morning?
Life is good...so far.
Mood: upbeat, awake and alert (I could ride further)
Weather: Hot and humid with rain
