Cabo San Lucas
We had to take a short boat ride off the ship. We were bombarded with people offering to take us where we wanted to go. But they would say $20 and then say, no, they could not take us to the beach we actually wanted to go to. It really was quite frustrating. While we were sorting things out, we noticed they had a booth where you could have your picture taken with real lion cubs. Portia, my Lion King lover, really wanted to pet the lion cub. It was really cute. But we paid more than Eric wanted, but Eric loves to "negotiate". Me, not so much.
Finally, we found someone to take us to the beach. We rode on the Manuelita over to the beach where we laid out in the sun and let the kids swim in the waves. The rocks are quite stunning and I took the opportunity while they were trying to sun-dry their swimsuits to take some pictures of my girls by the rocks. Bianca ended up losing one of her earrings in the ocean and Eric stayed back with her to find a new pair, some "tortugas" earrings.
Our boat driver then took us over to the rocks to see where the sea lions were sleeping in the sun and then around the rocks.
We had two days in Cabo San Lucas. I opted to stay on the boat with Portia on the second day, while everyone else went back into town. They ate tacos at Cabo Wabo. Here are Bianca, Ethan, and Aidan.
I just read some more and rested. Portia and I had a really fun mommy-daughter lunch together. I can't end another day on the ship without showing you another awesome towel creation. This time an elephant.
