Storefronts-of-Loreto-8 I was reviewing our photos of Loreto recently and came across a variety of shots that made me scratch my head.

I’m sure we had a perfectly good reason at the time to take them, but now I can’t recall. Here was a series of storefront photos, just random, nothing special, capturing a time and place in a little fishing town called Loreto.

As I studied the various shops, cafes, restaurants and other businesses, I laughed to myself. It was actually a slightly amusing way to relax with my coffee for a few minutes and recall strolling the streets of Loreto under the hot Baja sun.

I wasn’t sure what to do with these photos, so I decided, for better or worse, to post them here. Perhaps you too are interested in taking in the colors, architecture, character, people, streets and sights of Loreto…

A Sherwin-Williams store in Loreto!

This is a good corner store. Very clean. I’ve purchased several ‘Coke Lights’ here over the years, usually waiting for paperwork from the immigration office down the street.
