Day Three – Ensenada
You may not know this……..but Ensenada remained in Spanish control until 1822 (a full year after Mexico had won her independence. In 1887 (65 years later), the Mexican peninsula was divided into two separate federal districts. The first capital of the newly formed “Northern” Baja District was Ensenada, and remained as such until 1931, and subsequently later the district became a sovereign state of Mexico in 1952.
So, I continue to ask everyone in our group what they intend to do today in Ensenada? Their answer seems to at least be the same……..There is so much to do, that they haven’t yet made up their mind. (I guess it’s a good thing we are a late departure today huh?)
There are as I said, a plethora of things to do, see, and experience here. For the adventurous at heart there is the Jeep Tour, or the Horseback ride Tour which meander through much of the Mexican backcountry.
For those who wish to opt for a less rigorous experience, you might wish to visit La Bufodora (a natural Blow Hole) that shoots water spray 60 to 100 feet into the air. There is also a Scenic Coastal Tour, a Winery Tour, and there is a tour which offers a Taste of Ensenada, (which involves a good deal of eating, and sampling the many varied tastes of the region) No that’s more like it! Or you can take a shuttled ride downtown to the suggested (cruise ship certified) shopping sites to take in some serious “shop till you drop” bargains. Oh yeah, I almost forgot….for our golfers, they too get to have it their way on a host of well manicured Mexican courses. So don’t worry about them, as they have truly found their nirvana!
With a much longer port stay today, there is ample time to be able to “do your thing” and still be able to soak up the Mexican lifestyles, as well as drink in the social scene offered in this wonderful port city, as we do not depart until 10 o’clock tonight. So with today calling for so much to see and do, along with a lot more time in which to “get ur done”, I shall “SEA” you tomorrow, once we are again underway and riding the waves.-CruisewithMike.
