OUR BAJA HONEYMOON:
In late-November we spent our honeymoon in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico at the
Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach resort.
The Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach resort was simply stunning! With a quiet
serenity & 5-star accomodations in every aspect of this mountain-hugging resort, we were in total relaxation for the week.
There were parakeets, flamingos, huge cockroaches, & geckos on the walls too. To get around the resort we rode in modified
golf carts which was pretty exciting. The pool was great with endless drinks, pool volleyball, Mexican bingo, ping pong, & all
at the 90 degree pool. We spent several late nights in the pool just relaxing.
Since we both love Mexican food we were right at home in Baja eating lobster
tacos, fresh whole lobster (4 nites in a row!), chicken burritos, seafood marisco's, & other local specialties. On Thanksgiving
we visited the Old Trailer Park and had Turkey & Lobster! Other favorite spots were Pancho's (most authentic) & the Crazy
Lobster ($10 lobster dinner!). After searching for marisco's the whole trip, Lee was finally rewarded at Mazatlan with a nice
large goblet filled with shrimp, octopus, clams, & scallops in a spicy lime sauce. A unique limonada was a combination of lime
juice & Sprite and was very thirst-quenching. Kathe was 12-weeks pregnant so she didn't drink but Lee didn't miss the chance to
have a couple tasty shots of tequila at Cabo Wabo.
The Pacific side ocean was very rough with 10-15 foot waves crushing the
beach and made for amazing sunsets as well. The protected Cabo marina however was calm & clear. We took a water-taxi from the
marina to Lover's Beach, a private beach with spectacular views of the southern-most point of Baja. The rock formations were
beautiful & fun to climb too!
And here are some pics of the two newlyweds ... since it IS a honeymoon!
When we finally returned to the Cabo airport to leave ... our plane was broken
and we were extremely lucky to get on the last flight out into San Diego (instead of LAX where our car & Dillon was) or face
not being able to get home for three more days!
