Enjoying Christmas Week in Sunny San Carlos 

     We arrived in Mexico on December 23 this year, rather late for us. The small resort town of San Carlos, in the state of Sonora, is a peaceful, beautiful place to spend our first week in Mexico. The weather is perfect! It is Christmas day and the sky is blue, the temperature is 75 degrees F and the breeze is light. It is my kind of winter day!
     We are spending the week at Totonaka RV Park, our favorite because it is within walking distance of restaurants, the beach, the bank, and the grocery store. Yesterday we took Bella, our miniature dachshund, for a walk on the pretty beach across the street from the RV Park. Bella chased seagulls while we picked up pretty green rocks and seashells. A good first day at the beach!
Sparkling Sea of Cortez at San Carlos
     We needed to shop for milk and produce, but we were tired from the drive the day before so we caught the bus in front of the RV Park and rode it to the grocery store. We realized when we hopped off the bus that it wasn't very far to the store. After purchasing a few necessities, we decided we could walk home--it was just far enough --we reached our 10,000 steps for the day!
      San Francisco Beach (Playa San Francisco) is directly across the beach from Totonaka RV Park. Viewed from this beach, the Sea of Cortez sparkles with the sun bouncing off of the gentle swells, giving the appearance of diamonds on the surface. The island just offshore is a cactus garden with Saguaro cacti visible from the beach. I am always amazed that I can be standing on the beach in San Carlos, surrounded by Saguaro cacti growing on the red rock mountains around me, a reminder that, in this area, the sea meets the desert.  The beautiful cactus garden at the Totonaka RV Park entrance is representative of the majesty of the Saguaros in San Carlos, Sonora.
