Todos Santos

We took the Topolobampo Ferry to La Paz

This is the last post about our road trip down to Todos Santos in Baja Mexico from Prescott, AZ. We headed out of San Carlos to the Topolobampo ferry and got there 3 hours ahead of time, as the bajaferries.com website suggested. If we knew the ferry was going to leave at 8 pm instead of 5 pm, we might not have rushed to get there! We got our ferry ticket and walked the dogs and gave them water before we got…

I Made Another YouTube Art Video

It’s not that making videos is that hard on my MacBook. I use iMovie and it’s pretty intuitive. But it’s hard to find the time! And I can’t seem to figure out how to get rid of that annoying sound, the hummm, that is in the background of my voice talking. Oh well, it is an exercise in letting go and saying, “things do not have to be perfect.” I just wanted to get it done and share with you…

Donation Painting for the Fur Ball Fundraiser

Last year and now again this year, I’ve painted a piece to donate to the Todos Santos Fur Ball which will be held the end of January in 2012. The Furball is a fundraiser that has been held over the years and is organized by our friend Angelique in Todos Santos. It raises money to spay and neuter the dogs and cats of Todos Santos and Pescadero in Baja Mexico which is really important in these small towns. My painting is…

We are Baja Bound

Detail from Little Blue Beach Shack painting We’re taking a roadtrip and driving to Todos Santos again. It will be the third time we’ve made this drive! We are so looking forward to getting into some sunshine! I’ll be creating paintings and making some art videos while we are there. We’ll stay for a couple months so there should be plenty of time for both. I hope. I was just backing up my computer and sorting through some files as…

"Meet Me at the Guardian Waters" Acrylic Painting

I know that snorkeling with the fish down in Baja inspired my new painting, “Meet Me at the Guardian Waters”. I’ve been learning to snorkel for the past 2 years. We snorkeled in the Sea of Cortez when we camped for a few days down in Baja this year.  Although I’ve only been snorkeling a few times, I love being in the water and seeing underwater sea life. We’ve seen the most beautiful fish. Colorful ones, in lots of different sizes…

Traveling to Todos Santos

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…

News from Todos Santos, Baja Mexico

Hola, we made it to Todos Santos in Baja Mexico on Saturday with no problems. That is one looong 7 day drive from Bend, Oregon! Greg did the driving and he did great! There are some pretty hairy areas with steep twists and turns and narrow roadways, large trucks and fast drivers with lots of passing (Greg included), and some long, boring stretches that go on forever and then there were the windy, windy roads that wrestled with our truck…

We're going travelling

We’re going on a road trip to Baja. It’s going to be a nice getaway especially after the past month we’ve gone through with my Mom passing. Greg and I will be gone for 2 months. I sure am looking forward to it! I have to say we don’t think of this time as a “vacation” though because we both will be working while we’re gone except when we’re driving of course, but we will be having fun and enjoying…
