Overview, Punta Baja
Punta Baja is a broody piece of ragged rock, sand and sage, that juts out like a spear into the cold Pacific. In one day, you may experience 3 seasons. Clear, warm mornings, can turn into windy and foggy afternoons, and back again, perhaps followed by a light rain overnight. The homes and the boats that indiscriminately dot the point, decay quickly. The small contingent of outcasts that call the point home, are constantly shoring up their homes, as the weather does it’s best to reclaim the point to itself.
Every morning on this point, a few dozen local fishermen launch their boats from the protected beach and look to bring in a haul that will sustain themselves and their families. This is the Punta Baja.
