|Dinner on the beach|
They served steak and lobster.
I'd never been to Mexico before and was a little nervous at first because of all the things you hear on the news about what is going on down there, but Cabo is way down on the Baja peninsula and it is very safe.
|On Saturday morning we went horseback riding along the beach.|
It was so romantic!
The next day, Joe had meetings so I went into town with some of the other wives. Tourism is the main business there, so shopping was practically a duty! LOL It was fun meeting new friends and checking out the Marina. Later we went back to the hotel and laid by the pool and drank many more of those pomegranate margaritas.
There was a catered dinner on the beach that evening. Very elegant! We laughed a lot and enjoyed a wonderful dinner
It was partly cloudy on Friday, but still warm. We spotted whales jumping off the coast! How cool is that???
Joe didn't have to work, so we went back to town with friends and picked up souvenirs for the kids, toured the tequila museum (Joe's favorite thing! Ha!) and had lunch. There were strolling musicians at the restaurant and they played for us! It was just like in the movies. I loved it!
We were worn out by the time we got back to our hotel, so we had drinks and snackage pool side as we watched the sun go down over the ocean. It was so beautiful.
Saturday morning after a leisurely breakfast we went down to the beach and rode horses along the seashore. We talked about renting jet skis, but that water was cold and there were jelly fish warnings so we (you guessed it) went back to the pool where we happily drank margaritas and swam enjoyed more sunshine then we've had at home in months!
That night we went out with friends to this seafood joint on Squid Row (that was really the name of the street! LOL!) They served this ridiculous amount of crab, lobster, shrimp, octopus and fish (the octopus was to die for! OMG Joe got about 2 bites and I ate the rest. It's o.k. though, because I gave him all the crab!)
We had so much fun together. Sunday came too soon. We sat by the pool til the very last minute.
You hear a lot of things about Mexico, but from my experience win Cabo, I can say this: They were the nicest, kindest, most polite and thoughtful people. The hotel was immaculate (and how they did that with sand from the desert in front and the beach in back I'll never know!) I only wish we could have stayed longer! I sure as heck hope we get to go back someday.
Now, it's Tuesday and I've unpacked and washed all the clothes and cleaned the house. Joe had to go back to work in Canada, so he has been on a plane all day again today! Tomorrow we're expecting a foot of snow. sigh. At least I have my memories of Mexico to keep me warm....
and that big ol' bottle of tequila we bought! LOL Hasta la vista!
