Snow to Cabo

We have four dark, wet months. Got to get away, even if only for a couple of weeks. Tomorrow we are off to Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico, again for the third winter.

It's a beautiful place. But complex, being in Mexico. So you either spend a lot of money or figure things out on your own. I have been studying Spanish for a year now, so I have lots of words, verbs, and phrases swirling around my head. Some combination of them might come out in a coherent fashion. Last year our Spanish was so minimal it was almost funny.

The blue photo [has been removed] is the arch at the end of Baja California, which is less than a mile from our resort. Orange photo is Playa Grande, our resort, with its warm colors highlighted by the sunrise on the beach which is on the Pacific Ocean. Being on the Pacific side between the rocks is beautiful. But the water of the Pacific Ocean is not safe for swimming. The Sea of Cortez is safe. But from Playa Grande, even though the harbor is within a few blocks, the nearest swimming beach is a 4-mile drive or $5 boat ride across the harbor. This year I am going to explore the rumor that Lovers Beach, near the arch, can be reached by some elementary rock climbing.

Re: "This year I am going to explore the rumor that Lovers Beach, near the arch, can be reached by some elementary rock climbing."

Yes. It can. The clilmb is short - less than 100 vertical feet, but it is elementary rock climbing. We have done it a few times. One year a guy was going to work by that route every day.

For two years after Hurrican Odile it could not be done because the sand was washed away, so you couldn't get to starting point. But as of December, 2016, it is possible again.
