Try not to become a person of success,
But rather try to become a person of value.

However, we did not expect to find current at the very entrance of Santa Rosalia as none of our guidebooks warned us of the possibility. Just a few miles short of the marina, the winds died off and we were suddenly having what sounded like a river pushing us south at approximately 2.5 knots. Unfortunately that meant motoring since we couldn't fight the current with lack of wind. We eventually made it but would've planned a different path of entry had we known the possibility existed.

We had wished to visit what this area at large had to offer but it's the wrong time of the year to do so. Most tour guides/companies do not work after May ends due to the heat and the lack of visitors. We'll have to come back in the fall for there are marvelous cave paintings to visit as well as hikes to get to/from there. St. Ignacio is also a nearby oasis where 100,000 date palms grow but they were full that week due to a festival named after their patron saint as well as a date festival. Since we don't particularly enjoy crowds we decided to skip it for now but would love to see this green sanctuary upon our return. Finally there are rivers to swim in but the rainy season hasn't replenished them yet…
