Cabo San Lucas

I have been home for a week, and I still haven't quite bounced back. It would seem that I have the Mexican Swine flu or something, or as Peter likes to call it: a cold with a very annoying cough.   I thought I would post a few pics of the week that apparently did me in. I didn't get any pics of the ATV adventure that we did as a "team building activity." It was actually really fun to zip around on the beach, and someone (who will remain nameless) ended up rolling his bike, dislocated his shoulder, and had a lovely tour of the local hospital. It turns out he didn't need surgery, but his ego took a severe beating. There was also some amazing whale watching (which I have never seen before), some beach time, a bad round of golf on a beautiful course, too many margaritas, and a stage performance by yours truly that included a bad impression of Olivia Newton John. (see aforementioned margaritas)  

A view of the grounds at Fiesta Americana.

An all too familiar pose. 

Taking a break from the sun.

My partner in crime, Erika.  I don't know how I would survive these meetings without her.

We went out on a sunset cruise and got a glimpse of the signature landmark, El Arco, a natural stone arch at the southernmost tip of the Baja California peninsula. The arch marks the meeting of the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez.

My friend Gail and I enjoying the cruise.

My friend Helen, who is always good for a laugh!

Then it was time for some golf at Cabo del Sol.  Beautiful course.  It's a shame I hacked my way through it.  

Having a good time driving the cart.

Taking it in.

Okay, so maybe I nailed it once or twice. 

Trace and Erika on the green.

To close the trip, a full day was spent under the palapa on the beach.  Gracias Alejandro!

Until next time.....

What? No VW pictures!

I know! Very disappointing. They came at me so fast, like the heat was just around the corner or something. I couldn't capture them on film, but you should have seen them all! A massive posse of VW bugs. Awesome.
