When we arrived in San Diego and went to pick up our rental car, I was a little taken aback to be informed that the car could not be driven into Mexico. Although we had not planned to go to Mexico, it is sad to realize that it is no longer safe to drive a car in that neighboring country. On another trip to San Diego a few years ago, we drove down the Baja peninsula to Ensenada and then on to Santa Rosalita where we enjoyed a lovely lunch. During that trip, I purchased two beautiful Mexican dresses and a lovely sterling silver necklace that I still own. Sad that things have changed so drastically.

Like every place to which we've returned, things have changed. It's lovely to have beautiful memories. Often, our memories are far better than reality.
