What a weekend and a great turnout for the Baja 250. Wornout and I went to three different places to take photos; the last stretch was just too dusty, so we didn’t stay long. The best photos of the three spots we went to was Km 43, although Wornout got a great video of MacCachren coming down the to the start/finish line. All I got was dust. I mean I have to have my camera cleaned; see if I’ll ever get the sand out of my hair and scrub my bag which holds my Canon and I didn’t even have that out of the car. Aside from the dust, it was pretty exciting. I’ve post a bunch of photos on my Faceless Book (San Felipe Baja Kat) if you want to take a look.
There was the cutest donkey in contingency this year, pulling a cart. I’m surprised the cars didn’t scare them although they go pretty slow down the Malecon. Mostly all the restaurants and taco shops were full and people were lined up from La Morena to Rositas watching. They had a ramp like they do in the Ensenada races where the racers were interviewed on the Malecon.
Most of the Oxxo’s were full as well as Calimax, so the town made a few bucks. Speaking of which, Rita Casey was there selling T-shirts to benefit Coco’s loss of his truck. The shirts were $25 but you could donate what you wanted or had and I dropped $50 pesos in the can. If you’d like to donate, the website is on the poster.
I meant to put this poster up for Author Rico Austin in my last posting, but I spaced it out. This is on the back of his latest book.
This Saturday is the Las Amigas Luau being held at La Palapa on the sea side of El Dorado Ranch. The cost is $15.00 and I believe it begins at 1:00.
There were a lot of local peeps as well as visitors at Contingency and the actual race, of course. Here’s a few photos of spectators:
Not much news and I have to jump in the shower and get to my appointment, so I’ll close for now. Have a great Monday!
