BAJA AUTHOR GRAHAM MACKINTOSH
SPEAKS AT SAN FELIPE BOOKSTORE
Jan. 23, 2005, Catalina Meders, Title Company Bookstore, San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico:
San Felipe is very nice this morning. The weather for the last three days has been just about perfect. Right now, the thermometer on the balcony is registering 71 degrees in the shade! But it feels much hotter than that in the sun.
The sea water surface temperature at San Felipe is a cool 60 degrees and nobody is going in swimming as yet. The humidity is about 46 percent. There are a few clouds in the sky and a slight breeze...very very San Felipe. Everyone at San Felipe is getting ready for Carnival which is very early this year. I heard that there is no official "theme" this year so it's bound to be a really eclectic display. I did find out what El Dorado is doing and it's really neat.
Yesterday we were thrilled to have Graham Mackintosh speak at the book store. This year is the Twentieth Anniversary of his legendary WALK around the perimeter of Baja California (about three thousand miles!). It took him two years to complete the trip, and he had many fascinating adventures along the way, including coming perilously close to dying of dehydration a couple of times. As always, Graham was very funny and he captivated his audience. Also, he is beginning another journey this coming summer, which will mean another great book. Thank You for sharing your life with us Graham!
Today and yesterday San Felipe bay has been cobalt blue and calm. Let's hope spring is coming sooner than usual. There has been a lot of rain so the San Felipe desert will be just glorious when it starts to bloom. Get out your cameras and your water colors everyone. Until next time, vaya con Dios, from the San Felipe bookstore by the bay.
