Sailboat, sail away into the amber sky.

IMG_0461For our last day in Cabo, we pre-booked a sunset cruise with Cabo Sails.   Since there were 8 of us, we decided on the 44´Espiritu Santi sailboat.  It was spacious and very comfortable.  As we departed from the harbor, the deckhand prepared cocktails for everyone.  I must say that he made an excellent Paloma (click the link for a recipe).   In addition to serving plentiful cocktails while we enjoyed the setting sun, they also served a delicious Mexican combination platter that was ample enough to qualify as a light dinner.

We sailed in the Sea of Cortes along the Medano Beach where we had relaxed earlier during our stay.  Then we proceeded out toward the gorgeous Land’s End rock passing Lover’s Beach, Pelican Rock and a few sea lions along the way.  The weather was amazingly beautiful and the seas were calm (thank goodness as I am prone to seasickness!).  The captain let each of us try our hand at sailing the vessel under his watchful eye.  That was a blast!

I cannot think of a better way to end an epic visit to Cabo than with a sunset cruise with Cabo Sails.  As the sun set over Cabo San Lucas, we all vowed to return some day.

As a girl from Louisiana, I have always had a bit of an adventuresome spirit. And Louisiana has always provided me with countless opportunities to experience its rich cultural heritage. As wonderful as Louisiana is, I still have this overwhelming need to experience the world beyond my state boundaries. This wanderlust has taken me from the marshes of Louisiana to the temples in Kyoto, Japan to the magnificent cathedrals in Spain to a dinner party at the home of a merchant marine in Venice. In each of these places, I have been fortunate enough to meet new friends who have shared their culture with me. What began for me as the exploration of places nearby, has evolved into an adventure to places far away. It has been my lifelong dream to share my passion for authentic travel experiences with others.
