Crazy Happy Pretty

I love to go to Mexico, Baja Mexico to be exact. I like to go at a specific time and do specific things. I’m open to mixing it up of course but this is my fall back itinerary.

1. Breakfast

I like to go Sunday mornings and eat at this restaurant. It’s on the beach and breakfast costs maybe 6 dollars each. My sister was visiting this last weekend and we somehow convinced our downstairs neighbor T to go with us. As you can see, breakfast was pretty sweet.

Don’t we look happy?

2. Ride a horse

Horseback riding in Mexico is SOOOO cheap. I mean super cheap. I even checked out how much it would cost to go riding on the beach on the US side of the border. Happy Trails Rentals has a pretty sweet looking deal and you can cantor on the beach, however it costs over 75$. I like to go horseback riding at least once a month and that is too expensive for me. That is why Mexico is so great. There are guys all up and down the beach and they will let you ride 1/2-1hr for 8-20$ !!

 Now the horses are trained to walk quietly down the beach in a line and are not always that spry. I try to ask for a fast one in my broken Spanish. Sometimes it takes a little work.

Giddy-yup!

But I get them to gallop eventually.

I’m sorry, but there are few things as awesome as riding really fast on a beach in Mexico. It’s something you have to try someday, even if you don’t get faster than a trot you are still on a horse, on a beach, in MEXICO!!

3. Check out GardenHaus

Ahhhh Garden Haus! You are so hip and modern and pretty. I love to tour your show rooms and daydream about the day I might have one of you for myself.

Sigh….

Do you ever go down to Baja? What do you like to do?
