Last  Friday we camped at Playa Santispac on Bahía Concepción on the Sea of Cortez. We headed toward Todos Santos on Saturday morning. On this leg of our trip we traveled very long, straight stretches of roadway through a whole lot of nothing but desert for hours on end.

Although we did get to see some goats when we stopped for road construction work on the highway. You can barely make out the goat amongst the bushes below.

We pulled over and ate a picnic lunch before we got to Ciudad Insurgentes near the Pacific coast.

Finally we went through La Paz and it felt like we were almost there! The last 50 min. or so of roadway is a 4 lane highway, two lanes in either direction, that was built last year. It made for a quick ride into Todos Santos.

Below is a photo of the gate Greg built last year for our place. The bouginvilla has really grown!

Over the weekend, I unpacked my art supplies and got my art table set up.

My trusty studio companion, Belle, lounged around after the long ride, soaking up the atmosphere. Good dog.

In my next blog post I’ll show you some photos of how much the plants have grown in our yard and what I’m painting in the studio this week. Bye for now.
