Another trip out to the islands

I will be returning to the USA for Christmas, but only for a week, and then I'll leave the Sea of Cortez again. This visit I really noticed how cold it is when the northerlies blow. It is nothing to the cold of the north, and I am going to have to try and figure out how to get used to it up there again, but the warmth of the mainland is not present here.
La Paz stays the nice little town that I like, unlike most of the other cities in Mexico. Most of the cities in the world, in fact, make me weary and keep me wishing for the peace of the ocean.
Last winter the winds were not as strong, I feel, and the cold was not as biting, but this time I am weakened by my time in Puerto Vallarta in September. I have become accustomed to the warm, to the crazy hot of the tropical sun. So these winds get into my bones.
I took the above shot at Punta Evaristo, and I really like it. I like the place, I like the water there, the fish, and the desert. But I'll be heading towards the greener hillsides of the mainland soon.
Christmas first, then next year, I'll get moving again.
