In Loreto I met up with Flavien and his friends from back home.
Back home for him is Haida Gwaii, a little piece of paradise where one day I hope to return to as well.
His friends came down for a Kayak-trip. And were so kind to let me join in!
Ryan here spends his summers up on Haida Gwaii and is down in Mexico for the winter where he runs Kayak Adventures
So he set up a plan and took us all under his wing. And together with local guide Jorge,showed us some of the beauty of the Sea of Cortez.It’s a real nice change to see the barren desert from a different perspective than a bike seat.
It’s also lovely to be able to hop in the water after a warm day and just relax on the beach with good company and good food.
There were 14 of us all together and we had a wonderful week full of swimming, hiking,
even horse back riding.
And, of course, a whole lot of kayaking!
The wild life out here is amazing, I had no idea manta rays can jump out of the water so far!
we’ve seen dolphins and whales.
And heading down the other side of the peninsula for a day we saw a lot of grey whales as well.
But, even though I enjoyed it all thoroughly, in my mind I’ve already moved on.
For me this kayak-trip was a cherry on top of 15 years roaming around.
Not saying I’m going to stop, completely.
Just saying things are taking another turn from here…
Brand new adventure!
ps: Many have asked me where I am and what I’m up to,
I am (back) in North Carolina now.
But I’ll be in the Netherlands in three weeks and will stay there for a while.
You’re welcome to come visit!
