Our time in Cabo
22 March 2012 | Cabo San Lucas
We have been in Cabo for a week now and we are loving it here! First off, it's the desert, warm and dry. Secondly, the marina is perfectly located in the middle of everything tourist. We are surrounded by many different restaurants and if we feel like getting away from the tourist stuff, we have a very short walk into town. Thirdly, the beach is less than a mile walk away and right now, it's packed with college springbreakers.
We've enjoyed being tourist this past week by eating at the restaurants here, and a few in town. We have smoked cubian cigars, gone to one night club, and have hit the beach. Every evening, we watch the parade of fishing boats coming back into the marina after being out all day. They are followed by many pelicans and sea lions, all looking for a hand out. And trust me, the pelicans and sea lions do not have to hunt here, the fisherman throw scraps overboard all the time.
As for work on the boat: new battery installed with associated cables, new alternator installed, Tom did some rewiring, 5th slug on main fixed, small sewing job on the bimini canvas fixed, sewed small tear on lifesling bag, prepped stern anchor with rode, took off and remounted 3 cleats,and lubed propeller shaft.
All we have left to do is an oil change and reprovision for the pacific crossing; fondly known as The Cocanut Milk Run. We are now paying attention to the weather and have an idea of when we will be leaving. Nope, we aren't saying anymore than that, because Mother Nature and Neptune are listening.
