April 1, 2021: Not April Fools (likely just a fool generally) 237 miles I dig Campeche. One day I think I'd like to spend more time there. But for now we got up relatively early (by @NotaYinzer standards) and had a nice breakfast before loading up and hitting the road. Loving the full face helmet/sunglasses tan. We weren't in a rush, so avoided the cuota highways which also got us closer to the Gulf shore. Notice the hills in the distance. This was by no means a flat, boring ride. Stopped a few times just to look around. Get a little sand on the boots. Lot more pics of me with a partner traveler. This is the real economic driver through this area. Oil industry. The shoreline towns all had great views. Having a pillion with a camera has some advantages. Did I mention we weren't in a rush? Stopped for refreshments at the Bahia Tortuga. Lot better amenities than at the town of Bahia Tortuga in Baja California. Water is a lot different color too. No complaints on my part. Was feeling the "No bad days" vibe. But it might have been the sweat. We turned inland shortly afterwards. Still some water crossings as we went further south. The mountains around Palenque drew closer as we rode. Lot more agriculture and mixed land use too. Ended the day similar to how we started, with a good meal. With VEGGIES no less! It ended up being another hot one, but more tolerable as there was quite a bit of cloud cover. We did manage to beat the rain to Palenque, and we actually had to move tables at our 2nd floor veranda seat at the restaurant as the skies opened up during supper. Impressive if rather unseasonable rain storm (first of several for us as it turned out).
