Winter in Baja Day 44: Easy Living at San Dionisio

Rancho San Dionisio //

It’s our third full day in the same place and feels so good to wake with no intention of moving.  We wait for the sun to come out and warm the air before stepping outside for a morning yoga session on the lawn.  During yoga a gentle breeze causes the leaves of the giant Ceiba tree beside us to come raining down.  I wonder, in confusion, what month it is.  The Ceiba tree sheds it’s leaves and blooms within a short window of time, an almost simultaneous act of fall and spring…in January.

After Mark finishes preparing our breakfast of chilaquiles we join the community area where we eat breakfast and chat with Isabel about her current stress and our past stress of having challenging dogs.  While we chat I love on Manches, the subject of our discussion.  An incredibly sweet one year old pup with too keen of a hunting instinct.  I snuggled her in my lap last year when she was just a few months old and I welcome all 60 pounds of her in my lap again this morning.  

After our breakfast conversations wind down, we each enjoy hours of time to ourselves in our own little corners of camp.  Our parking spot along the back corner of the property allowing us to be as social or as introverted as we desire and today we relish the time alone.

It’s an ordinary evening spent inside our camper with dinner and a show.  After the amount of life we’ve lived over the past 44 days, anything ordinary is quite welcome.  We’ll be on the move again, wandering in to the unknown, soon enough.
