William at Lands End Los Cabos
Notice that the life vest doesn't close. I guess my manly chest and shoulders are too large.
February 2 – Los Cabos – I copied and pasted some very good maps of Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo as well as the southern Baja Penninsula by going to www.loscabosguide.com
and copied and pasted the maps into Word Files. You could do this or when you get to Cabo grab one or two of those free
Los Cabos magazines which are around everywhere and tear the maps out of them. They are some good maps for finding your way around.
Today I got up early and after my usual drinking my tea, having a banana and some cereal and thinking things over walked down to the Marina and did some t-shirt shopping. To me a souvenir cannot just be cool but must be useful. I got about 4 t-shirts so I will need to slow down a bit so I won’t end up packing a ton of stuff. I went to the Marina and talked to a guy standing at a boat ramp there and booked a boat to the arch at Lands’ End for $20. They don’t even quote things in Pesos. Perhaps they stockpile dollars and exchange them when the rates are good. In any
case I took a small boat out to El Arco. I was the only one on the boat so I had a private tour. It surprises me how slow things are down here now. I had expected everything to be packed because this it “high season”. I’m sure it gets busy when a cruise ship comes in or during Spring Break.
I remember when I was in the Air Force and stationed in Athens. When one of the US aircraft carriers came in all us Air Force guys stayed home. About 5000 guys hit the place all at once. They came in and raised hell and took the place apart. ( I mean…. what could the Greeks do…put them in jail…I tend to agree with Samuel Johnson that the only difference between being in jail and on a ship is a jail won’t sink).You could find out the location of any ship in the Mediterranean from the bar girls at “Bobby’s Bar” in Glyfada. They let us know when the Navy was coming in (or perhaps I should say they warned us) and we stayed home while they were in port.
But back to the present….after the boat
Across from Divorce Beach where the dangerous undertow will pull a person out into the ocean. I guess go to Lovers beach for the Honeymoon and Divorce Beach later.
tour to El Arco, Lovers Beach and Divorce Beach I returned to the Marina and booked a “Whale Tour” for tomorrow. It is at 9 AM and will run me $50. There is supposed to be 5 of us and it will be a small boat so we can get up close to the whales. Sounds good.
After booking the Whale tour I walked over to Captain Tony’s restaurant and bar to eat. They surprised me with their low prices. I had expected the prices to be high because they are on the marina. But a Pizza and Pepsi cost me only M$130 (USD just under $10). As I ate my great tasting pizza and afterwards I enjoyed the people watching on the marina as well as the fresh cool breeze. One of the nice things about Los Cabos is they don’t bring you your bill for you meal. They leave you alone while you enjoy your meal at a leisurely pace and afterwards while you relax a bit. When you are ready to go you approach the location to pay the bill and pay it.
After enjoying my Pizza at Captain Tony’s I eased back to the
Suprisingly affordable for being on the Marina.
Cabo Inn and took a nap. No sense in wearing yourself out.
