Catch 22 Beach
We met up with our friends Ches and Allison in the Totonaka RV park on Thursday evening and decided to spend Friday together exploring a special beach. This is where the movie "Catch 22" was made some time in the 1970s, and I spent an afternoon there with my ex-husband when we drove down to San Carlos about 30 years ago. At that time there was a little bit of the set left and a man with a string of horses walking on the beach--and nothing else except the sand and the rocky islands. It's quite a bit more developed now--but still an absolutely beautiful spot. We walked the whole length of the beach and then sat in the sand under the palms and enjoyed a picnic. In the afternoon the wind came up and we watched a few guys kite-boarding. It was a lovely way to spend our last day in Mexico.
This morning we're packing up and getting ready to drive north through the desert to Nogales and cross the border.
