Still basking in the beneficial effects of a long birthday weekend at Baja, staying at Casita Barranca and soaking in the warmth of the Mexican sun and the local people.
The beach at Playa La Mission has to be the finest in Baja and Casita Barranca sits prettily just above the sand right in the middle of a long and lovely strand you will have virtually to yourselves. The house is a perfect get-away spot - comfortable, bright, well appointed and fully equipped. And the patio is prime seating for those exquisite Baja sunsets!
Walk the sands, swim in clear water, hitch a ride on an ultralight, or simply watch the world amble and the dolphins gamble from your patio perch - you will find contentment washing over you within minutes of arrival like a cooling ocean zephyr!
Can't say enough about the courtesy of Amelia, from whom we rented Casita Barranca. She was super-responsive to our inquiries and even e-mailed mid-weekend to make sure we had all we needed. And we did - a beautiful beach house, a beautiful view, a beautiful beach which all adds up to one beautiful birthday weekend!
It had been quite a few years since we had been down to this part of the world but, for those who know the area, you can be assured all is well with the La Mision Loncheria exactly the same as ever - same family, same fabulous Huevos Rancheros; La Fonda back in Dimitri's hands - oh those flour tortilla chips and so glad the waiters are cheeky again!
Great place, great house, great weekend. Go stay at Casita Barranca - you will not be disappointed .... except when you have to leave!
Five big stars!
Oh, and pardon the pun in the title but, then again, it was Richard Feynman's house at one time!
