I’ve determined that I am terrible at posting my cell phone and Instagram pics every month or two. It’s been about a year since my last update! But since I got a brand new phone and had to move all my photos anyway I thought it would be a good time to start this off every Friday.
Have you noticed I was quiet here the last few weeks? Well, that’s because I was vacationing in Cabo San Lucas! It was an amazing trip and while I have over 1,000 pictures from my DSLR, today I’ll share the story in cell phone pics.
Technically I’m going back 3 weeks but I don’t think anyone will care.
The journey started on President’s Day when I went into the city (San Francisco) to do some client work and kicked things off with an office selfie to demonstrate just how pale I had become in winter:
The next day I was off to the airport and flying to Cabo San Jose! Not before breakfast at the airport with this “side of fruit” which was more like a fruit shooter:
Here’s where I stayed while in Cabo San Lucas:
It was a cute place, very open and friendly – I met some great people! This was the view from the lounge on the second floor:
That blue door there is mine!
One of the things I loved is that I knew I was in Mexico, not in a hotel or resort that looks like every other hotel around the world. Here you could hear the nightlife, step outdoors and grab a taco or smoothie and we were super close to the marina and the mall.
This is the mall:
Insane, right? The view from the second story is even more impressive:
After picking up a towel and beach bag, I made my way to the beach. It was bright. So bright this was the “amazing” shot I took:
Yeah. It’s hard to see the display on a cell phone when it’s 85 degrees out. So after tanning for a bit I went to a great beach front restaurant where I could drink in the shade:
Oh and eat some amazing crispy tacos:
During my trip I read a few books including this one I found at the Inn:
Yes, I read about serial killers on vacation. Doesn’t everyone? Here’s the marina. Gorgeous, no?
At the very, very, very end of the Marina and shopping is the boat launch where fisherman gut their fish. It’s so much fun to watch:
Not really because of the gutting but because of the subsequent feeding leftovers. To pelicans:
You can see them lurking around, waiting for a free lunch.
For humans the Marina had awesome seafood, including this “hawaiian roll” which was ah-mazing
Also these bougainvillea were growing everywhere and looked so beautiful! Since all of mine have died I am going to re-try planting some this spring:
On the last full day I was up from sunrise to sunset and it was a beautiful day:
On my last day in Cabo I went out to breakfast:
and by this time I was pretty tan/burned:
and 9 days after landing I was heading back to San Francisco!
Next week I’ll have more pictures of the return, including the dogs completely swarming me for attention.
