Vacay Part #2 ... Day 2

Let me tell ya, it’s amazing how hard it is to turn off vacation mode!

We had a MARVELOUS time!
Ok now moving right along... it's now the next day (Day 2)
I wake up to water flowing I open the door to this...

And just so you know that it's a real picture,
I made my Momma pose for you... See!?

We hit the road to Cabo San Lucas (Marina)

Jumped on the Catamaran and hit the water for a mini tour.

Beautiful Cabo rocks and I'm not sure if you can make out the Sea Lions lounging on the left side of this picture but they were so cute!

The Famous Arch... UGH! Look at the water! So pretty.

We Whale watched (it looked like this) ...BUT!

I wasn't fast with my camera, so my pictures look like this.

We parked and put on our snorkel gear

Now tell me why I had No Love from the crew?...
everyone else had matching fins...

I had one black and one yellow (so NOT fashionable). Boo
We seen lots of cool fish and coral,

OH! and I think I seen Dori while we were snorkeling, either Dori or a distant relative.
Same difference really.

Here's my sister looking all cute!
Oh and we made friends with those girls
on the top right of the picture they were from Miami & NYC.

My sister is paranoid so she sat right at the edge of the boat to make sure this cute little guy didn't end up taking a swim in the ocean.

This is our Captain "Elvis" feeding the seagulls that followed our boat back to the Marina

I wasn't going to post any pictures of us because we all looked like a hot mess after snorkeling but ahh who gives a sh!t right!? Here's one of Bon Don & her Momma

When we got off the Catamaran we had to get past security!
These little guys were everywhere!
This a my favorite picture because it looks like a post card.

We walked around the Marina, (again) because it's my sister's most favorite place in Cabo.

We hit the mall that was on the Marina...

These art pieces from Sergio Bustamante were all over Cabo

These Cat People sculptures kinda creeped me out

And now I bring you to the Haagen Dazs story...
My sister LOVES ice cream.
She would eat it all day if she could.
I know you're saying, "Well Duh Bon Don who doesn't like ice cream?"
Oh my friends you have no idea how much she LOVES this stuff!
So she keeps insisting we go there because
"Mom really needs ice cream right now"
I say no.
She says "You have to have Dulce de Leche, you just have to!"
I say FINE!
We get there and have ice cream, she is very content now.
She starts saying how she loves this place but doesn't go unless she is taking someone around Cabo, then we proceed to walk out the door and then out of nowhere the manager rushes to the door and says "Thank you senorita Runaway Train, see you tomorrow!"
They know her!! and quite well apparently.
We get out to the car and it's parked right out front never taken away by valet (and we had been there all day) the valet guy knows her name and says "No charge senorita Runaway Train, see you tomorrow!"
You think she's a regular?

We hit the shops for souvenirs, and fight... I mean bargain with the locals

When working up a thirst while shopping, you must hydrate here...

and here! Yummy.

After being properly hydrated we started back to the Marina in search of Fish Tacos, then I seen my little poopsie "Blue" ... or at least I wanted it to be her, but it wasn't.
See the resemblance? No?
Oh well it wasn't my poopsie... it turned out to be a Xolo
read HERE all about them, they are very interesting.

So we made it back to Captain fish and grubbed!

and hydrated...

Mmmm Coconut Shrimp...

and "ta-da" Fish Tacos

Oh and of course our views...

What a lovely day!

OM gosh, that looks wonderful!

Desert Rat said...

He SO didn't say my name he did say Thank you, see you tomorrow but I'm positive you guys paid him or I look like someone else!
The valet guy well yeah, he knows me and all the family.
That really made me laugh I had so much fun with you guys I will miss you this weekend alone here bored with nobody to take sightseeing.
both dogs look like evil dogs from hell.

Ron said...

Wow, love the pics! I have to ask: Who's pick did you use of that whale jumping? Let me guess, Desert Rat? LOL

Next time I go on vacation, I'm calling you to plan it for me! Awesome!

Reading your blog from the northern coast of Malaysia.

BDC said...

Nice....But where are all the hot chicks and Dudes at? there must have been some there....

brenda rowe said...

What a fabulous vacay! I am so jealous...P

Perhaps when all my construction is done, I shall make my way to the Enchanted Land of SNAAH and do a meet and greet?

Lana said...

Just looking at your pictures makes me never want to leave. Oh. Right. I never went there. I think most of your pics look postcard quality, not just the one!

LipSmacker said...

Um JEALOUS!!! Looks like you're having a blast! I want fish tacos now, YUM! Glad to see you had a fun get away, hope you can "recover" soon and get back to drinking regular old american cocktails! ;)

Bon Don said...

MM: It was :)

DR: Oh no, don't try and clean it up now... too late!

Ron: Thanks, my little 8.1 mega pixel camera is nothing compared to your swooped up gadgets! Hope you're feeling better

BDC: No hotness, just hot messes and short dark Cabo natives.

Ms. Rowe: You must come to SNAAH!! We would have a blast!

Lana: I so have to take you on the next vacay, you'd crack me up the whole time!

Lipsmacker: American Cocktails are def. on my list! When you come down to see Mickey we have to have one or seven...whatever!
