Memorial Day Weekend in El Rosario 5-27-05 to 5-29-05

Mision Nuestra Señora del Rosario de Viñadaco

Founded on July 20, 1774 as the first Dominican mission in (Baja) California.
In 1802 the spring went dry, so the mission moved down the valley
to its second site close to the river, known today as 'Rosario Abajo'.

To La Bocana Beach

Using the high and dry road, it is about 5 1/2 miles
from Highway One to the beach.
The 'river road' is shorter, but may require 4WD.

The beach, looking south...
A large lagoon is just off the photo, to the left.
It offers calmer and warmer water recreation.

'Baja Angel' pours a cold Pacifico at La Bocana.
