Night view from our boat in the marina
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
It’s been a few days since we’ve posted to the blog, so I decided to update everyone before we take off for La Paz tomorrow morning. We may not have any coverage for a few days.
Cabo has been fun, a bit too “touristy” for us and way too hot for me! And I’m happy to say that we “got away clean” with no hangovers! I think it just evaporates out of our pores with the many gallons of sweat! We have met some very nice people here, a lot of them fellow Baja HaHa vets like us, resting up from the trip down, making needed repairs and re-provisioning for wherever they go next. There are lots of people going to La Paz like us, and many others taking off for Mazatlan or Banderas Bay/Puerto Vallarta. Some even across the Pacific to different islands!
It has not been all play since we’ve been here. Dennis has done lots of work on the boat and I’ll let him tell you all about that. I spent a couple afternoons doing laundry, as there were many others needing to do the same and only one small washer and two dryers at this part of the marina. I think I did about 6 loads, waiting in line and getting to know lots of other cruisers in the process. Today we walked to a small organic grocery store, and then a regular grocery store to buy food to last until we get to La Paz. The stores have much less in them than ours! I hope the locals have more choices than we had today!
One of the high points of our stay here was walking up the hill to Joe’s Garden Pizza And Sushi Restaurant. We stayed in a “compound” grouping of extended family homes on the same property last spring, and rented a studio apartment thru Air B&B from the owners brother and sister-in-law. Martin, Lara and their son Zion were not there-Lara takes Zion to Ashland Oregon for school every fall, and Martin was visiting them there. But we met Maria, the grandmother. She seemed very happy we knew her son, and walked us into the restaurant and told them to take good care of us and we’re treated like royalty! Another great memory, and still my favorite place to eat in Cabo. They really make you feel like part of the family and the food is great.
Tomorrow morning we will be taking off for more adventures. We are going to take a few days to get to La Paz, anchoring in some very scenic places in the afternoons and spending the night. I’m looking forward to swimming in the turquoise, 80 degree water of The Sea Of Cortez, BBQ and wine and beautiful moonlight. Dennis will tell you about our anchorages.
We are missing family and friends and send our love to you all. We’ll write more from La Paz.
