  1.  I lost my Volkswagen car control – key on the Beach between Costa Brava and Callejon Don Pepes on Sunday May 23. If you found it please contact me: maria@bajasawesome.com or 6121376676 
  2. A chance in a million you might have found the seat of my outrigger canoe that blew off my car roof somewhere between Los Brisas and downtown Los Barriles sometime in early March.  It is made of closed cell foam, black in color and looks like a form fitting seat with a low back.. – skypilot97031@gmail.com


  1.   Note from a happy Canadian: Unfortunately in life (especially in todays climate) more people have time to moan and complain rather than post compliments and positive experiences. So please allow me to post my experience with returning from 5 months basking away in our little piece of paradise while our friends and family’s around the world had to endure months of restrictions, isolation even worse the loss of lose of loved ones. I took my first test the day before returning at the local lab in LB, it was nothing more painful than taking a tad to much Wasabi at La Castia, picked up the results that afternoon. Downloaded all the apps required for Mexico, US and Canada and filled them out accordingly…not a brain buster. The next day I checked into SJD with my apps and paper work, it was a seamless operation, the staff where helpful and friendly. Arrived in Seattle cleared immigration and customs with the same friendliness Took the shuttle to my pre booked hotel. Next morning I it took it back to the airport to take my pre booked NAAT test , which I took myself and had the results texted within 30 mins. Caught my flight to Bellingham where I hailed a cab to the Pacific crossing where I walked to the crossing to be greeted by a very helpful customs agent, he gave me two test kits and said instead of take the first test the next morning I could do it right there with the help of trained staff once I cleared customs. The customs staff cleared me through and even helped with my baggage. I went to the tent and took my first CND test, 10 mins later I was across and heading home. Each day off quarantine I checked in via an app, on day 8 I registered for my last test and got in the queue, I was 438 in line at 8:30 am, at 8:35 I was sitting in front of the screen being coached though the last test by a very patient and helpful nurse, popped my test kit into the supplied bag and left it for pick up on the doorstep as required, 3 days later received my test results back via email. This little bit of inconvenience is a very small price to pay for the time I was allowed to spend in paradise. This is a big thank you to the community of LB and all those on all sides of all the borders that made this possible. – rjdakabulldog@gmail.com
  2. Thanks to everyone who helped hook me up with the epic LB to Todos Santos ATV ride.  We took the north route and had QuadGirl trailer our machines to San Antonio. Then used the Gaia GPS app and the awesome maps from our BPE friends.   We had a tire blow out, so carry an extra.  Edgar from QG picked us up and we trailered home.  That dude is awesome!  The ride was about 3 hours, lunch was about 2 hours eating the best shrimp tacos ever (far west side of town at the corner, painting of jalapeño cartoon on the wall). Ride home was under 2 hours I’m Edgar’s awesome truck. Another superb option is to stay at the hotel San Crystobal and check out the Lobos boat launch in the morning, then ride back to LB.  Peace, amigos.  Enjoy it all!  Harry. – harry@dincpie.com
