January 26 Cabo San Lucas We're ready to cook and dance. Our group of twelve boarded a bus for a short drive to a restaurant overlooking the sea. The plan is to learn how to make various salsas and then dance the salsa. Each table had the fixings, a lime squeezer, a cutting board and mortar and pestle. At the door we are offered juice, water and Margaritas. Well, the sun is over the yardarm somewhere so Maggie's it is. We were seated at a table where each couple had everything needed to make salsa. But first we made really great margaritas. The second batch were strawberry so I passed my glass to a tablemate who graded it A. ML was in charge of chopping and I did the grinding. Needless to say her chopping was ... read more

. When I first asked my husband where he wanted to go one our honey moon his response was "anywhere but a cruise" the truth is neither of us had been on a cruise and we were both hesitant to be on a giant boat in the middle of the ocean. All we could think was "Titanic" As the wedding planning continued we knew we wanted something fun and a wedding that people would remember.We are not your average couple. We don't like rules and we hate "tradition" for no reason. We discussed the cruise ship idea over and over and had family members telling us how wrong we were about cruising. We sank into the idea of a cruise ship wedding combined with a week long vacation.We decided to get married on a carnival cruise ... read more

On my last morning I decided to stroll the beach of Lands End, mostly to check out its West end. It is referred to as Lands End due to the fact that if you head directly South from it, you won't touch land again until you reach Antarctica.... read more

Lots of Water in those Waves

I chose to stay at the Solmar, which I thought was a fairly good value. Things were well appointed without being a hugely upscale experience financially. I would stay there again. I think their water is actually fairly well treated, but I still used bottle water the entire time I was there just in case and that worked out just fine. As part of the package I had, I was given free "American Breakfast" every day at one of their snack bars. Turned out to be a really nice breakfast every day with ham, scrambled eggs, some rice, some tortillas, and a very fresh fruit salad. They took some time with food presentation as well, and once I noticed that, figured out the food would be pretty good and was right about that. Solmar and Grand ... read more
Dangerous Waters

I note this as sportfishing "lite" since the boat I chartered wasn't really set up to fish for Marlin. We were however set up to fish for Roosterfish and Dorado (i.e. Mahi-Mahi or Dolphinfish), although on this day we would be lead to believe that there were no Dorado in the immediate waters of Cabo San Lucas. I really just wanted to dabble in sportfishing, and I certainly didn't want to wake up at 5am and then be on the water for 8 hours, although I did like the idea of a shared boat. But, shared boats are 8 hour trips, so I opted to charter a 17' "Panga" with Mr. Peter. We departed the marina at 1pm and would be out for three hours or so. A "Panga"can accommodate three people on board, but there ... read more
East end of Lands End

I had a couple of hours before my sportfishing charter was to depart the marina, so decided to do the hike above Lands End to see what kind of views it offered. The hike up was worth it. I did however hike in my Keen sandals, and they were not quite the right footwear for the job but managed to get the hike in without any disasters. There are parts of the hike that are steep with rock and cactus, so falling down could prove painful. In think the round trip took me about 80 minutes. I did take my time on the way up and the way back. The path up is steep at the end, which means pretty tricky coming back down.... read more

I did little research before arriving into Cabo San Lucas, but was looking for Eagle Diverswhen I got there. I ended up doing all my snorkeling with them and found their guide knowledgeable, safety conscious, fun, and picked up garbage from the sea floor if he found any. I visited three separate snorkeling areas on this day : Santa Maria bay, Chileno Bay, and a marked area about halfway between the Marina and El Arco. Santa Maria is a generally not too deep bay with little coral to be concerned of swimming into, although some does exist. It appears getting into the Santa Maria waters from the beach right there would be really easy. Chileno Bay is more known for its Brain Coral and I found them mostly be green in color. The last spot was ... read more

It was a fun day of snorkeling, so I decided to get on one of those "Booze Cruise" kind of things they have, and was shooting for a ride on Sun Rider . Sadly, Sun Rider was booked, so I was instead able to find a spot on the Ecocat , this enormous ( guessing it was 70') catamaran that offers a very similar service. Was a nice night for it, cool folks on board. Music on board, drinks were a flowin'.... read more
El Arco (aka The Arch)

This was my first day in Cabo, so the attached photos are just from the things I found interesting that day on my walk mostly around the Marina. Oh, I had never seen this before either : A Sea Lion riding the swim platform on a fishing boat while being fed and petted by a guy on the stern. ... read more
