San Felipe was a bit less "developed" in 1951.
[Our red truck and the Neals' woodie make it easy to locate their campsite.]

[Once again the red/black Dodge truck stands out.]
[In this photo it's the woodie you see.]
This photo is labeled "Andys Cave house - Bought Shrimp, Dec. 1951.

I was 4½ that Christmas and so I have some vague memories of this trip.
*A paved road to San Felipe had just been completed which is undoubtedly why we went there this year. I think Mother and Dad may have visited that part of Baja California before World War II but this marked the last time we went to Mexico.
