Cabo San Lucas is a gorgeous place!! The families of my brother, sister, a family friend and I flew to Cabo San Lucas together for a quick getaway after my niece graduated from high school. In all, there were ten of us. We enjoyed five whole days of rest and relaxation on and around the beaches of the Baja Peninsula. All-in-all, it was an uneventful trip, but one filled with a lot of much needed down time. I think we found our way to the pool each day we were there.
The waves that crashed into the beach in front of our resort hotel were the most violent and aggressive waves I have ever seen. But, they were absolutely breathtaking. At times, I would estimate the waves were 20 feet high. The beach of our hotel overlooked this rock formation.
It wasn’t until we were able to venture closer to it during our deep sea fishing trip (which ended up being a fishing trip barely offshore because a few people were terribly sea sick), that we could actually see the formation known as “the arch.” It was gorgeous as the waters of the Pacific Ocean forcefully crashed through the window. I had a longer lens with me, but it was in the hull of the boat and I was on the bow. So, I only got this wide image of the waves and El Arco,

We also passed by Lovers’ Beach. (Fact: Divorce Beach flanks the other side of this peninsula.)
On a shopping day, we stopped in to visit Sammy Hagar at Cabo Wabo. Suspiciously, a guy who looked just like Sammy Hagar showed up and took pictures with people—though he never admitted to being THE Sammy Hagar. Ironically, Sammy’s yacht was docked in the marina this same day.
We also had a chance to meet up with two other hometown families and had a few drinks and even a shot of Cabo Wabo, which I might add, is very smooth. I drank a clear one which I was told was “Silver.” But, now I see that the tequila only comes in Anejo, Blanco and Reposado. So, I have no clue which one it was. I can add that it was almost as smooth as water.
We also ate at a beach restaurant called The Office, and I discovered the most incredible tortilla soup on the world.
I love this image I captured as the sun rose across the marina. It’s not often that I’m up this early, but when I am, I always try to witness the sun rise.
The trip was a great one! I am very grateful to experience these trips with people I love. The world has so much to offer. It really saddens me that I won’t experience each and every square inch before my time here is done.
