Oh the beautiful sparkling blue beach and the waves. It is like the celestial kingdom here. The ocean is the most beautiful blues and greens when the sand is off white coral. Our hotel looks right out onto the water. I can do without the loud music until 1 am each night but the big canopy beds with billowing curtains and the big sand cushions are cool. Mark is so much fun. The first night we slept out on our little patio on our couch cushions.
Sunrise from our hotel balcony. We saw 84 fishing boat go out for deep sea fishing this morning.
Sunset cruise with Senior Advisory Group. Mark was in the 30 top sales people in the nation, so they sent us on this trip to Cabo for 4 days.
I got carried away shopping the missed the departure of the Cabo Mar boat for the sunset cruise. The hotel activities lady got me on a wave runner and i met up with the group. This Mexican guy said we needed to go faster and said I'd have to wrap my arms around him. I said I didn't mind that at all. They said I made a splashy James Bond entrance and teased me all night. The sunset was spectacular.
Thursday we rode wave runners out to the sea lions and the point of land that marks the mixture of the pacific and the sea of Cortez. Friday we took sea kayaks out to see the sea lions up close. Mark and I were trying to navigate a big rock and we tipped over. I don't have the arm strength to pull myself back into the canoe and a nice guy on a wave runner took me to shore. Mark tried to kill himself playing in the surf where it pounds the beach and swimming isn't allowed. We found a street vendor who had smoked marlin tacos in the back of his truck. Then he went to scuba and I took a map to see where the locals hang out and went shopping for silver jewelry. Two gay guys talked me into shaved ice. I had an awesome massage for 25$ at a little shop off the marina.

Oh beautiful fall colors. Every day the maple tree out front gets a little more orange. And, while the tree is changing colors, I did too. I owned a red Nissan 350Z a few years ago. This time I got a blue one. While the blue looks great against the orange tree, the real dopamine rush comes from driving it on the freeway with the top down.
Happy birthday Charley! Nothing better than watching a 1 year-old smushing a cupcake.
