We arrived in Cabo San Lucas around noon. It took a while to get baggage and make our way to the shuttle past all the hucksters. Competition for tourista dollars makes for a lot of land sharks. We were polite but not interested in a timeshare.
After getting to the resort, we got something to eat and then walked to the nearest store to buy a few items for tomorrow. We plan on doing some cooking for breakfast and then eating out at local restaurants for a few meals.
This is a stunning place with the Pacific waves incredibly strong. So many sailing yachts of all kinds were out near sunset. And it was interesting to watch the boogie board competition going on. I have taken quite a few photos with my big camera but am sharing a few taken with the iPhone for ease of posting.
Tomorrow we plan to go on an excursion into town. And there may be zip lining, horse back riding, historic tours planned as well. We will take each day and see what unfolds.
It seems alcohol casts its shadow every where. The screams, curse words, and door slamming coming from the room next door were cut short when I called security. I'm not willing to listen to people screaming all kinds of trash at each other. Now it's quiet.
I have to say that the staff have been wonderful. They remember who we are and seem to truly want us to enjoy being here. I want this to be a place we can come back to again. I am definitely intrigued with the sail boats at the nearby marina. Any where with water makes me happy.
Before we left home, I learned that a fellow I know died suddenly. He was a bad alcoholic who would take in drinking buddies. Evidently, he took in a guy for a few days and got into a fight with him. The police were called and the fellow who beat up Larry was arrested for assault. Larry was found dead the next morning.
And his dog, who is a sweet Labrador mix named JuJu, was taken to the animal shelter. When I heard about that, I drove to the shelter to rescue her. Fortunately, she has been adopted by a friend who has a yellow Labrador. He met me at the shelter and was able to take JuJu home that afternoon. It was a great relief to know that she has a good home. So at least some part of the sad tale has a happy ending.
It's time for us to take an evening walk. More from Cabo later.
