Good God I feel lucky. This past weekend was the longest, slowest, most relaxing weekend I’ve had in a long time. From horseback rides on the beach and fabulous home-cooked meals in a beautiful kitchen with an ocean view to drinking gallons of Tecate while talking about the merits of cereal around a campfire and eating fresh coconuts on the beach while chatting up the locals, the time spent in La Fonda, a beach town south of Rosarito in Baja, California, Mex., was damn-near magical.
We even adopted a dog for the weekend. The furry guy ran up to our rented beach house (which just happened to be a house built by the famous physicist Richard Feynman) and kept us company until the day we packed up. We ended up naming him Oso (Spanish for bear) and each fell madly in love with him.
I feel sorry for those who are still too scared to come down to Baja, although, a part of me loved having an entire beach to ourselves this weekend.
