We are anchored in Puerto Ballandra on Isla Carmen, about eight miles off the town of Loreto. This is a large island, and the hiking inland is wonderful. There is more vegetation than we have seen in other places in Baja, signs that there is a little more rain. On a long hike we encountered a fair number of plants in bloom, including the Passion Flower in the photo. We've seen brightly colored birds - cardinals and orioles, plus large white winged doves. A great place to stretch your legs and drink
in the exotic.
