With the “gentle” prodding of my wife, I will continue the tale of our lovely vacation to Cabo San Lucas. It was about a month ago…so sorry.The first full day we of course wanted to hit the beach.
The day was gorgeous, clear and warm. The ocean, of course, had undercurrents of death, so we couldn’t get in the water. Which was disappointing, because I was looking forward to being beaten to a pulp by the gargantuan waves. Or learn to surf. Or both. Probably less surfing and more bruising.
The path we hiked often to get to our room.
Anxious to explore the culture, we head downtown via cab. Oh, and to get food so we’re not spending bajillions of hard earned dollars on food at the resort. Cab fare wasn’t horrible. About $12 to get downtown. We roam around the hundreds of identical shops full of pottery, trinkets, silver jewelry, trinkets, blankets, trinkets, and….get this….Team Ponchos! Literally, ponchos with NFL, MLB, NBA, FOC, OIH, HOSDDSFSDG and more! I, of course, being a HUGE Denver Broncos fan (God help us), had to have it. So now I do. For like $30. It will actually be good for cold games I actually attend. We also bought some other small stuff, but mostly wandered. We paused by the marina for some daiquiris at Margaritaville, which were huge and excellent. While there, we were serenaded by a roaming mariachi band and tiny children peddling whistles. We didn’t need any whistles.
We grabbed another cab to the local Wal Mart (yes there is one). Interesting fact: Wal Mart in Spanish is “Wal Mart”. We bought wine and beer and other essentials. Some milk and cereal so we don’t have to eat burritos for breakfast.
That night we are sitting in the room, checking out the four channels, when I discover the parental controls button. Because I’m a curious man, I turned it on. Not that we needed some dirty programming, but I couldn’t figure out how to turn it back off. I even called down to the front desk. They said to just turn it off and turn it back on (isn’t that what you do for all electronic problems?) No dice. Hopefully we didn’t miss anything awesome on Telemundo.
Well, that’s if for the first day. More to follow when I am again chained to the desk by my lovely wife.
