Feb 16, 2009 - Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Having a great time in sunny Mexico! It took a long time to get here but it was worth it. We left Las Vegas and drove as far as San Diego where we had to stop at a AAA office to arrange for car insurance for Mexico. Since it was late in the day we decided to stay there overnight and cross the border in the morning. We were up early and crossed the border without having to stop. There was a border guard with a gun but we didn't even have to slow down! No one was interested in us or in looking at our passports. I didn't expect that. We drove...

Feb 13, 2009 - Cabo - Day three

Another gorgeous day in Cabo. We did a little shopping at a new mall, but didn't get down to down town Cabo. Too hard to park down there, and not too safe to leave vehicles. At least that's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it. We went on a sunset dinner cruise last night, and had a really great time. When I thought "dinner cruise" I was thinking far less informal than it turned out to be. I broke out a nice pair of chinos, a new shirt and so on. Silly me! The cruise turned out to be part whale watching, part sight seeing, part drinking, part...

Feb 11, 2009 - Cabo - Day two

I can’t believe myself! I was up and at ‘em at 7:30 this morning – and I liked it! We were met by four taxis, and taken for a trip to see a glass factory. Five or six artisans making glasses, vases, pitchers and touristy art glass. It’s always a pleasure to watch somebody who is a good craftsman. It looks so easy, but you have to know that there are years of experience in the moves. They obviously have many tourists stopping to see them work, for they have all the moves down pat. After the glass factory, we reboarded the taxis and went for...

Feb 10, 2009 - Cabo San Lucas

Short day today as we only drove about a hundred miles. Left La Paz at seven, and reached Cabo at about 10:30. We had about 30 km of four lane highway today. Nearly forgot how easy it is to drive freeways. All the highways in B.C. Sur are slowly, but surely being up graded. Bits and pieces here and there, but enough to see what it'll be in a few years. I suppose it will increase tourism, and that's got to be good for the economy, though I suspect it'll turn some of it into less desirable destinations. We did have a bad incident today. One...

Nov 1, 2008 - Tip of the Baja

We’re back and sitting at the bottom of the Baja in a little resort called Cabo San Lucas. Cindy and I were last here in the late 1980s and OMG has it changed. No longer is it the sleepy little up and coming resort to be with mucho opportunities for time share, etc. The harbor is now full of slips, boats and continuous activity. The beaches are now lined with hotels, condos, etc. Wow! We arrived late yesterday morning after a long overnight passage from Mag Bay. Since last we posted we have traveled 400 nautical miles (at a speed of 5 knots...

May 9, 2008 - Cruise - Cabo San Lucas and Two Sea Days

We arrived in Cabo San Lucas at 8 am on May 7. This was the one port where we had to tender ashore. A tender is necessary when a port either does not have a suitable dock or is full. The ship is anchored in the bay and uses the lifeboats to load up the people and take them ashore. The temperature while in Cabo San Lucas was 82 Degrees with about 20% humidity and the water temperaturwas also 82 degrees. Unfortunately, there were some delays so we had to wait for quite some time. The people that had scheduled shore excursions got off first...

May 1, 2008 - disembark, drive to Cabo San Lucas

Although every day we have been in the Sea of Cortez it has been bright and sunny with lows in the 60º’s and highs in the 90º’s, the wind has been much harder to predict. We’ve had little opportunity to really sail. Most of the time the wind is blowing the opposite direction of where we’ren trying to go. We had a good spell yesterday and about ten minutes after the sails were up and properly placed, the wind dwindled to nothing. But lately the wind turned mean. It generated choppy waves that made some of us sea sick. Since all of us are...

Feb 15, 2008 - Cabo San Lucas

Our ride to Cabo San Lucas had some beautiful scenery - from the views of Los Barriles complete with blue waves and surfers, to the passages for Mex 1 carved from the rock, to the mountains with their continually fascinating formations. They all made the ride to Cabo enjoyable. There is no question that Cabo is a big town. Between highways, landscaping and power lines, one could not doubt its eminence. Many told us they did not like the bustle of Cabo with its cruise ship crowds, numbers of tourists and citified nature. However, we are city...

Feb 13, 2008 - Today we rode through Cabo San Lucas

Cabo San Lucas was quite busy and full of tourists. Because we did not arrive on a crusie ship or tour group, it can be difficult to find a base to park the bikes and hit the beach. So we continued on to San Jose de Cabo and then to Los Barriles for a little more R&R.

Feb 1, 2008 - Cabo San Lucas

2/1/08 Greetings from Cabo San Lucas, Temps here today were in the low 80's with the evening temps in the high 60's. Our stop before Cabo was in a small village called Los Barriles. Most of the group was parked away from the beach with full hook-ups. We and Frank were parked virtually on the beach with no hook-ups--and it was wonderful. We had beautiful sunrises each morning coming directly into the back window. Not only that, this beach is alive with wind surfers and kite surfers, which made great watching. Also, the manta rays would jump...

The Best of Baja

Jan 24, 2008 - Cabo San Lucas

Thursday January 24...10:30pm On the road this monring at about 8am. Did the 45 minute drive to Cabo San Lucas and found the Vagabundo's RV park just on the other side of town. It's located right by the main road, so the traffic is a bit noisy, and it's kind of expensive...$25.50 per night, taxes included. But, it gives us the opportunity to recharge batteries, do laundry, have decent showers, and generally get things cleaned up from 9 days of camping without services. And, Walmart is right across the street so it's easy to get stocked up...
