We're now in what was billed as the newest, bestest and greatest marina in the area.....they don't think much of Baja HaHa'ers...at least Cabo San Lucas, reputedly THE most expensive marina in Mexico gave us all a significant discount. Here, the wifi barely works. They've stopped the planned resort construction since the recession has really killed the economy down here so the pool, spa etc are yet to be built. The wifi didn't work in Cabo San Lucas marina either. I guess I'm just destined to spend the next few days in the cantina....
They have a "swim with the dolphins" here, but I just can't bring myself to support that. For now, our big wildlife is an osprey that is marking his territory by landing on each mast head and chewing up the mastfly (wind indicator) We still have ours, but not for long. We have a sling shot, but I'm afraid we might have a pretty big bill after our many attempts to get near the sucker! We taxied into town for groceries and laundry since the wifi was down and I'll have to catch up on client work tomorrow. (Any clients reading this..thanks for your patience!!) This area was developing wall to wall resorts before the recession and its sad to see that they are mostly empty. This is their slow time of year and they anticipate a better holiday and winter season than last year. Lets hope! I'd like to get into the old town area for some tourist adventuring. I remember how quaint a place that was when we were down here in 2003, with shady cantinas and real art. Hope to get some pics for you!
There are about a dozen HaHa boats here and heading up to La Paz as we are, so I guess we'll keep bumping into them from time to time. Nice to see friendly faces in the cantina. When we came in yesterday, the beach and public park at the entrance to the marina was filled with families enjoying their Sunday, but for the HaHa'ers its a ghost town around here now!
