I have been spending a good bit of time on Google earth looking for forgotten places.


I watched the videos on the Mexican, Gulf of California Islands and found them very interesting. The island below was a contested possession of Mexico



Posted below are two videos about Clipperton Island and it's history from the 17th century.
In the first video it is as if they had only 6 pictures and kept showing them over and over. Consequently it is not worth watching. However the audio is very interesting and worth listening to.


The second one is Jacques Cousteau,..need I elaborate?

The Yachtsmen and sailors of California consider Mexico their 'cruising grounds' and are seasonally very active up and down the western coast and up into the Baja. Their letters home are found in a magazine with a wonderful web presence called Latitude38.
You might enjoy eavesdropping; I did for years.
