This is a picture of some of the roads in Mexico. We are following one of the couples we met.
Well, we finally made it to Stone Island. and we will be here for 4 months. It is a true paradise but it was a real journey to get here. I left off on my last blog we were in Queen Valley, AZ. We had a great time there, but we got anxious to get on our way to Mexico. We went to some fun places in Arizona, like Tortilla Flats, and Goldfield Ghost Town. The desert is beautiful and we both really enjoyed it. We met Barry and Sonja in Phoenix, which is a huge city and we were glad to leave......and to be on our way to our destination. We picked up Barry and Sonja and then met three other couples at a place in Amado, AZ which is south of Tucson. We all spent the night and left early in the morning to the border. There was no problem at the border and then we drive 21 km to the check point. There you need your papers, and lots of cash......or credit card. We were there about an hour and waiting for the other couples it was a wait. But all was fine and we headed south. Our
Just one of the many stops along the way. Either for fuel or lunch or both.
first night we stayed in San Carlos in a rustic RV park, but it had clean bathrooms and showers. The second night we we stopped in Los Mochis and that was a different story. We stayed at Copper Canyon RV Park, better name "chicken ranch RV park" There was literally chickens running around and the sites looked like grave sites. Anyway, we were concerned as there was a hurricane heading for Mazatlan and we were suppose to drive there the day it was going to hit. We continued to check the weather, and it was down sized to a tropical storm and the contact we had said if we were coming to come that day and don't wait because of the road into the Island. So we packed up everything and headed out. We arrived at the turn off to the Island around 3pm and headed in. The rain had already started, so the road was filled with water. But from what we were told, if we would have waited another day the road would have been worse. We got here and set up in the rain and the people living here took Barry and Sonja to the ferry to
Lunch along the way. No one was especially happy, just tired....
go back to their place. We made dinner and went to bed. Gerry got up early the next day to get some pictures, and he has been taking pictures ever since. This is our home and we love it here. The humidity is very high, but we deal with it. Temps around 80 degrees or more during the day and cools off a little at night. Here are some pictures. Hope you enjoy.
