Julia Turnbull. AGE: 58. BACKGROUND: The retired Calgary lawyer spent many years vacationing near the sunny Sea of Cortez. She eventually found an article about a new resort underway on the Baja Peninsula called Esperanza. While dining at one of its restaurants, Turnbull fell for the scenery, including waves from the Sea of Cortez crashing along the rocks off the private beach. She purchased fractional ownership in a villa at the resort in 2002 and has taken regular trips ever since.
Winter is a world away from one of the many dining areas in the resort.
