We made sure we were on the local 'Urbano' bus to the Mega Mall by 9:00. Having ridden the local and intercity buses...

Nov 10, 2016 - Sailing to Santa Maria Cove

Thursday, November 10th: Sailing and snorkeling Weather: hot and dry Route: Cabo Azul Resort --> Mega Mall via local 'Urbano' bus --> Cabo San Lucas via Intercity bus --> Cabo San Lucas Marina Our private sailing/snorkeling tour was reserved for 13:00. We lingered over a late breakfast of yogurt, fruit, granola and toast (I finished off the fish leftovers) before walking to the corner to catch the local Urbano bus -- a repurposed school bus -- to take us to the Mega Mall. Even though we were familiar with this ride we were perplexed at the...

Nov 9, 2016 - A Lazy Day

Wednesday, November 9th: Another day in Paradise Weather: sunny 89F Route: to the pool Today was designated as a day of rest for the member couple. The three guests were happy to spend another relaxing day enjoying this luxurious resort. The members had an obligatory breakfast marketing meeting but were free by 10:00, in time to catch the last half of the stretching class. The three of us had already finished our aerobics of choice by then. Since we had all eaten a late, large breakfast, lunch was a late-afternoon grazing meal of tortilla...

Nov 8, 2016 - Something for everyone

Tuesday, November 8th: Chillin' at Cabo Azul Weather: sunny and 89F with 29% humidity Route: room--> beach --> pool --> room --> supermarket --> room --> beach --> room Today the Diamond Resorts members elected to take advantage of a long all-day members-only bus tour to La Paz, including catamaran sailing and a shopping stop in Todos Santos on the way home. The only caveat was they must also attend a marketing breakfast tomorrow. Rather than plan excursions of our own, I and the two other guests chose to enjoy the many offerings of the...

Monday, November 7th: National Marine Park At Cabo Pulmo Weather: sunny 86-ish with a light breeze Route: Cabo San Lucas Tours shuttle pickup outside Cabo Azul lobby --> northeast to Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park (final 10 km over a bumpy dirt road) --> small motorboat to 4 locations in the park Amazingly, I was awake 15 minutes before the 6:00 alarm.

Nov 6, 2016 - Cabo Azul

Sunday, November 6th: The gang's all here Weather: high 80s and sunny with a light breeze Route: to the beach and to the supermarket Sis and her husband are members of the Diamond Resorts Timeshare. They used their points to reserve a two-bedroom suite that sleeps 6. The member couple claimed the master bedroom with the jacuzzi tub and private bathroom. The young couple (wife arriving today) took the remaining bedroom. Since I was the 5th wheel, I opted for the fold-out couch in the main kitchen, living and dining area of the suite. We...

Nov 5, 2016 - Friends

Saturday, November 5th: Pittsburgh to San Jose del Cabo Weather: Crisp 58F to a humid 85F Route: PIT --> DFW --> SJD Friends are gifts, gifts which with a little nurturing become heirlooms. Best friends are valuable treasures, better than precious gems or riches. Best friends know about your bad habits, irritable moods, religious/political beliefs and are your friends all the same. Spending time with friends is joyous and relaxing. There are no thoughts of how long a visit should last before it is polite to make up an excuse to flee....

Mar 11, 2016 - Guerrero Negro, Baja, Mexico

The next day we went out whale petting again. Both days the weather was great and the lagoon calm. Again the whales cooperated and we spent many hours watching and petting baby whales. After the whale watching we had a social on the patio at the RV park/restaurant with natchos and tons of sides.

Mar 10, 2016 - Guerrero Negro, Baja, Mexico

The first pictures posted are of the salt mine tour. This actually happened after we went out in the boats whale petting. It is supposted to be called whale watching, but everybody on the trip got to pet a whale. The salt mine is one of the largest in the world. It is here because the water in the lagoon is higher in salt than the ocean. Also because of the wind and heat here that makes for fast evaporation. It is a huge operation and employs about 800 people.

Mar 9, 2016 - Guerrero Negro, Baja, Mexico

This leg was supposed to take 5 hours. But we came upon an overturned tanker truck. The road at this point is only 19 wide (entire paved roadway, no shoulders). You can't go off the pavement without having an accident. We were stopped for about 1.5 hours or so. So we got the opportunity to get out and take pictures of the beautiful desert.

Dec 3, 2015 - Dunes from Dec. 3 to 24

Bon and I spent considerable time at Esquina, Cafe Todos Santos, and several other local establishments in and about town as well as 2 Sunday trips to Baja Beans for our favorite carrot cake. We both have come to the conclusion thst we're done camping here in the future - 15 years is long enough and with privacy a much bigger issue we're not in the mood to bare ourselves before the world anymore. Not that we're shy but more that the public has changed here ( higher end and less tolerant). On the bright side, of the 42 plants I've put in...
