A week later, our friend Miguel reported damages to our place in San Jose
So we loaded up two SUVs with lumber, tools, food for ourselves and friends ...
…and made the 1600 mi trek through Baja
Lots of plywood to secure windows
Lumber for every framing possibility. Donated extras to the Cabo humane society
The desert had turned into a lush prairie of grass, with fat burros and foxes and snakes
Jacqui in front, Pete behind, with walkie talkies for communication
Highway 1 had been washed out in many places.
Somewhere on the Sea of Cortez
Fresh ceviche for brunch in Ensenada
In the heart of the desert is Catavina, a magical place
We always bring a bag of dog food for friends we make along the way
Lots of exterior damage to our complex at the Vista Encanto
The majority of cars had window damage. The tarps I brought down came in handy
Flying roof tiles had done a lot of the damage
Many of the beach resorts were trashed. No windows left.
Pete channeling his carpentry days as a youth
Even created a workable sliding patio door
Thousands of electrical repair trucks using this arroyo as base. Note the first cruise ship.
Thousands of Federal Police came to provide security. They will be there for months.
Hard to see the cacti. Nothing but green grass.
