Ensanada Mexico

Ensanada Mexico was an interesting experience. Kevin did not want to get off the boat because he had always envisioned Ensanada to be very similar to Tijuana which is the boarder city to San Diego, so it is just a mess. I really have no desire to go to Tijuana and because we had heard Ensanada was similar, we were just going to chill on the boat. Sitting at breakfast we got the wild idea to just walk into town and check it out and if it was lame, then we would go back to the boat and so we did. Surprisingly, when we got off the boat and got on a bus to downtown and then another bus to the Bufadora (blowhole) we were really surprised how much we enjoyed ourselves. The Bufadora was really beautiful and was on the ocean so it was cooler and really a good time. The vendors in the market were not pushy although I got "Common pretty lady--come see my stuff" from every vendor on the row. It gets really old but they were not too bad. The kids liked looking around and we had literally the best fish tacos I have ever had. Literally a woman pressing the tortillas right in front of us and frying the fresh fish right there. They were AMAZING and I wish I could have brought some home!

The bufadora blowing-- totally cool and gets everyone wet!

Blowing again. There are only I think 5 Bufadoras in the world. 3 in Hawaii, 1 in Ensanada and one more somewhere else-- we have now seen 2-- one in Maui and one in Ensanada.

Climbing the really steep rocks-- yikes!!

The blowhole blowing-- cool!!

Surprisingly, we really had a great time in Ensanada!!


  1. VERY FUN...
    I have been waiting for an update all week..

    I hope to see one of those Bufadoras one day..
    Have a great week..
    Love ya and miss ya...

  2. Wow! What a fun day! It looks like you had a blast! Great pictures!

  3. That looks like SO much fun! All the shops and the culture...not to mention the FRESH fish tacos, about as fresh as they come! YUMM!~ You're making me hungry!! ;o)

    And little Mia always has on the cutest little outfits...sporting another beautiful little sundress here!! She's just plain ADORABLE!

    I did a little 'shopping' for Khloe again today. (Good sales... couldn't help myself!!) Anyhow, I picked up several really adorable dresses and sundresses for her to wear when she is home with us next summer...I can't wait! And to answer your question, we are PRAYING that all of our paperwork processes fast enough so that she can be home with us in time for Christmas...but it will definitely take God's hand at work. We are trusting in His perfect timing, though!! <><

    Blessings and Hugs,
