I am traveling home after a nice long vacation in Baja Sur, Mexico. For my Leisurely Thursday post, I could not resist including another set of photos for the Weekly Photo Challenge.
I took these photos on my last day in La Ventana. The warm desert air combined with the 72 degree water of the Sea of Cortez creates incredible windy conditions from November through March, making this area south of La Paz thee winter destination for windsurf and kiteboard enthusiasts from all over the world
A variety of birds, including turkey vultures, pelicans and other sea birds glide effortlessly on the warm thermals created by the wind and warm water. Here a turkey vulture enjoys a thermal as the windsock indicates a good north wind.
A few miles away on the Bahia de la Ventana, a rocky outcropping called “the Boof” provides a visual delight at high tide as the waves crash against the rocks and holes eroded over time.
Water briefly defies gravity at over 12 feet high.
What makes you feel weightless?
I am adding this to Jennifer Nicole Wells’ color your world weekly photo challenge blue-green.
