    Thanks Juan we all had a great time as always. You take great care of us when we are down and we appreciate it. You have a couple of new "fans" from our trip if you know what I mean.. "Juan is so nice" and "Juan is so patient". "Why can't you have patience like Juan does"."Juan has cooler tattoos than you do"...Whatever Juan.

    You know I'm a huge eater so a big thanks for the suggestion to eat at the new "Eucalyptis" at the old mill hotel. The food was amazing. We had fried octopus with mushrooms and garlic, and portabello mushrooms stuffed with lobster for appetizers. For dinner we had very fresh Bonito sashimi (it is incredible when bled, iced, and eaten fresh). The sashimi was served with cilantro, onion, jalapenos, and limes, and soy and wasabi on the side. Lastly, we had whole rockfish- some deep fried, and some baked stuffed with onion and cilantro and wrapped in bacon. We also brought our own wine in and had a bunch of the sangria (which they mix with sparkling water, lemonade, and Gin- very good.) The ladies loved the food, drink, and atmosphere.

    Next morning it started with coffee and baileys and kaluha coffee on the patio at molino viejo. We watched a few of the boats come in. We kept drinking and eating from noon on and ended up back at eucalyptis for a few drinks. We then headed to Jardines and had more of our catch, lingcod and reds, cooked up. They made them "mojo de ano"?- which is butter and garlic, and Veracruz- which has tomatos and olives, and breaded- which was very light and crispy. We ended with several more tequilla and frescas and called it a night. Fat Matt was disappointed there was no live music and overweight old hispanic ladies to rub up against on the dance floor. The dude is a pig- seriously..He is my hero,

    Drove home today and got to the border in a little over four hours. There were several spots of road being repaired. 2 hour wait at the TJ border- even though the line wasn't that bad.

    As a side note there were several people down duck hunting, as I guess it was the first week of duck season. We talked to a few of the hunters who said it was early limits for them. If that is your thing, it's a great time to get down there and not too many others around.

    Oh yeah, one more thing. Coming into mexico we got inspected upon entry, since I have a truck I almost always do. I had firewood in the back of my truck (as I have done several times over 25 years). Well firewood is a no-no. I was turned around at the border and sent back to the US because of the firewood. They took my passport and escorted me back to the U.S. border line. They gave me my passport back and told me to get rid of the wood on the US side. The douche gabacho in line as I tried to merge was so focused on not letting me get in line in front of him, that he ran into the back of the car in front of him. Typical Asshat.

    We then get to the border and tell the CBP agent we got turned around because of firewood. He sends us to the Agricultural secondary. Since we had good looking girls with huge cans in the car- about (4) friendly CBP agents came to inspect my "vehicle". They pull out the sammiches, and meat and cracker trays out of my cooler. They then tell me they should fine me $300 for trying to bring mexican pork products back into the US. Huh? The meat was sealed, labeled RALPHS, and purchased in the U.S. I also got sent back before entering Mexico. Just as I was feeling like a bad ass criminal, Fat Matt offered to line them up and suck them all off like a circus seal. They let us go with a "warning". Sorry Matt but you saved me $300 and the taste will go away eventually.

    Always an adventure!!!!

    Raw meat products are also illegal to bring into Mexico. You're lucky they didn't confiscate it.

    I noticed in one of the pictures a 2 1/2 pound box of San Pedro Bait Company fresh frozen squid. Wondering if someone knows where you can buy them. Seems everyone in San Diego have 1 pound trays but cannot seen to find the 2 1/2 pound boxes. A captain at Castro's Camp told me Ensenada but could not give me directions. I have no problem picking them up in Mexico since I'm down there often fishing. Thanks for your help.

    No raw meat was brought into or out of the country. A Ralphs meat, cheese and cracker tray with salami pepperoni etc...I'm hoping the stuff was cooked or today I'm going to be blowing out an O-ring and I'll have some serious ring sting.

    Sounds like a great time. Yeah, it's a shame that some of our border agents can be real ass holes at times. Upon entry at our border, I've been threatened to have to return to Mexico because my truck had dirt on it. The guy said that the Mexican dirt may harbor nematodes. They go too far at times and treat travelers as if we were criminals.

    If squid is around the fish market in ensenada has it, try to bring some frozen, and check at fish market on way down. By the little light house - tourist info, as you come into town, on the right

    javiers eucalyptus is the place for dinner,the chef is on fire and his food is delish.

    I got some from Turners, If you ask they'll get however much you want. Stater brothers markets we'll bring it in within a couple day's buy the case ,or however much you want, most meat markets, not hard to get if its around. Always nice to have, the stuff from the stores or fish markets sometimes gets turned into dinner so bring a lot.
