Loreto fishing expedition - Mid July



We are sorry, we cannot serve you till 6am. but on the airplane... Brad & Justin kick off the morning with Bloody Marys....


Living in Brad's world is something I will never understand


Dale and me at the airport restaurant


a Motley crew at the bar at the Hotel Oasis


3 shots from the back porch of the bar:






Dale, having a serious conversation, does not know Brad is joking in the background


looks yummy, si? Dinner at LaMission


This was my shrimp dish, and it was even more tasty than beautiful....


Justin, "El Mariachi" having some water, unfortunately, unable to pace himself at drinking. The folks at La Mission were probably not thrilled to clean up after this guy's act....


5:30am headed out to the Sea of Cortez


Our "skipper" Antonio said "Orale Carlitos, tu amigo, es un Mariachi?"
"Por que Antonio?"
"Mira, aye-aye-aye-aye"
poor Justin. Antonio told us, "tonight, either buy him some dramamine, or some mariachi lessons, I do not like his singing...."
(point! I did the same very next day)


Brad puts boat into scale


Look! I caught,,,, well, it is the bait...


Justin and Brad at WORLD FAMOUS McLulu's Tacos


this is what Chips and Salsa SHOULD look like


Tacos and tostadas


Dale, relaxing before dinner


Dan caught a few yellowfin tuna, and had the heads bbq'd tastes amazing, but...


Hotel LaMission, not where we stayed, this is the bathroom in the restaurant, the cleanest and tidiest bathroom in Loreto.


Justin caught a fish


YellowFin Tuna!


Brad? Cabrillo, or Sea Bass they come up from very deep, and the pressure change turns them inside out


Mike, Dennis and Dale by the boat at Playa Blanca off Coronado Island


Brad still on the boat


clowning around


Yellowfin and sea bass


kids wheel them from the beach to the processing plant


Justin in front of his yellowfin


me in front of the teeny tiny red snapper I caught. (we got skunked!)


brad and fish


processing plant


lunch plate at the hotel


this is a darn lot of yellow tuna sashimi


with soy & wasabi and a margarita? yum!


Went for Dinner at Papagayo's, a new restaurant run by a retired Houston Realtor named Lee
Justin stares adoringly at Brad


I have a rita


Brad has a Rita


Lee told us he made the best Key Lime Pie ever, he may be right


in Raul's truck on the way back


This is the roll-a-way bed I was on


it is very sturdy, that is steel!


for some reason, whenever I see the police...


Brad, trying on fishing hats


in the airport, nearly home
