What I assume is a gypsum deposit on the beach.

About sryoder

Steve & Lulu... retired. Had enough of the cold wet dreary fall/winter/spring in the Pacific Northwest. Bought a boat, fixed it up, sold our home and sailed to Mexico in November, 2010. Been here ever since except for occasional forays to the States (summer only, thank you) to visit the kids, parents and siblings. If you're looking for a sailing blog, this is the wrong place. This is a traveling, hunkering in, eating blog. Sailing is just how we get from place to place when we can't walk.

    Serious amt of gypsum being mined. my guess is that is spilled gypsum not a deposit. We need a lot more information about gypsum.

      Pretty sure the chunk on the beach was deposited naturally. It was one of many and some of them were firmly planted underneath boulders and others looked like they were embedded in the rocks.

    Great pictures. The scenery is so restful. Too bad that we have to have those terrible border towns that give Mexico such a bad rap. Love, Mom

  3. Love the vulture shot. They are cool birds.
