2013 Baja Sunrise Sunset


Amanecer(dawn), 1 Enero 2013.  Colonia Puerto Escondio, al sur de Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico.

The beautiful red reflection in the tide pools was a new discovery at sunrise for me.  This view, from my patio, changes daily.  The red and pink highlights look edited, but that’s the real scene at approx 06:30.  It MUST be a sign of …???


As usual, got to bed before midnight on N.Y.E..  “Geez you’re boring, Doc!”.  Unfortunately, New Year’s Eve restaurant dining or public entertainment venues mimic that of Valentine’s:  triple the price, weaken food offering under the “special menu” moniker, squeezed tables,  poor service and painful hangover have not fit my ideal evening since I passed the age of 30.

Humbug, balderdash, poppycock.  “Just how is it that you’re still single???”.

Missed the 12 grape gobble thing tradition, too.  Blasphemously substituted 12 ounces of petite sirah at 9PM.  We will see if that provides the right luck for 2013.  Sure felt good to me.

My moderation last night provided a refreshed feeling this morning to greet the scenery, some terrific coffee and music.  Temperature was also a few degrees higher than the last few sunrises.  Did not need my new knit “warmer”(see 31 Dec post).

Got in a quick workout, nice hike + photos in the sun and a blueberry protein shake this morning.


Atardecer(dusk). And now that the sun is set after a fairly lazy day, a cold Pacifico is calling me.  Hope yours is grand.

Like my friend Jose says, “Feliz Año Nuevo WITHOUT the ‘~‘ is just Happy New Asshole.”.  Salud, Amor y Paz.
