Photographer's Note

Paleta (ice cream) carts selling "nieves" ("snows," or shaved ices) are everywhere in Mexico. This is at Playa Tecolote, a mile-long, world-class stretch of sandy beach on the Bay of La Paz. It's about 20 miles out from the town of La Paz. Being on the bay, protected from the Sea of Cortez, the waves are mild and the swimming is pretty carefree. And when you get thirsty or hot or tired, you can step out of the water and get a raspa ("snow cone")!
