It’s been almost a year…
By Lorna Hill FEB 2018
It’s been almost a year since Rodrigo and I made the long journey up from the Southern tip of Baja California, to San Ignacio Lagoon, and I welcome that feeling of “returning home”, to a place we hold special in our hearts. We always really look forward to that time of year when we can get in our trusty, faithful campervan and just hit the road, become vagabonds again and venture North, excited in anticipation of being able to spend several months back with the whales, at our beloved Campo Cortez.
With the full moon, comes the high tides. The camp gets flooded with water and the birds have to wait a while until the tide goes out before they can feast on the food that lies in the sand. However, the first guests to arrive at the camp luck out as they take the opportunity to get out on the kayak. A beautiful way to get over to the mangroves and see the birds, resting in their tranquil home.
Recently, we saw a very small baby whale – so tiny in comparison to it’s mother! It is such a beautiful sight to see as they wont stay tiny for long. The baby needs to feed and grow quickly, preparing itself for the outside world – the world outside the lagoon!
The next coming months will bring new life, birth, spring and the anticipated arrival of many more whales!
Tune in for more action in our next blog!
Cheers for now!
