Life of sick and poorests in Cabo San Lucas!

Here's one who could'nt care less how high the prices are...


Many had told us:

"I hate Cabo, there's nothing to it, it's just a place to party." or even: "Cabo is just a dump!"...

Others said it was a cool place and that the weather there was super nice!

After 2 weeks, here are our impressions about it, what we liked and disliked about Cabo:

We simply loved the brown sugar colored beach, the turquoise water of the tropics, the sun every day and the absence of wind. It was really nice to find restaurants that serve food we can actually recognize and the nightlife of the town.


On the other hand, we did'nt care too much for the smell of raw sewage so strong it would wake us up at night, nor for "camping" parked like sardines at the RV park and for prices so incredibly high, it's ridiculous! Not necessarily very reassuring either to see a guy being seached, at machine gun point, on a street corner, by 7 or 8 "Federales" all dressed in black with bullet proof vests, face masks and military style helmets...

And besides, Minnie's getting bored at the campground!!


In short, it's time we hit the road...

...So, here we go again!!!


On the way to Los Cerritos via some back roads...


...And some really nice tiny little villages.


Oh, Oh!! It's been a while since that happened...Unfortunately, maps don't show gates (Well, now mine will...). Turn around and backtrack time...


Aahh!! Our first glimpse at the Pacific ocean!


An almost desert beach, just south of Los Cerritos. Not too bad, is'nt it?



7,000 miles!
Now that's what I call an ATV ride!

We set up camp at Los Cerritos. Free dry camping, with a wonderful view of the ocean to the west. And the beach is just a couple minutes walk from the tent.


Looking south from our site.


And, to the east, the mountains.


Yeah...I think we might stay a couple of days here! You probably guessed this is much more our kind of environment...


Hey Minnie! That's quite the playground, we found you!


Unrelated, but true!



No snowmobiles!?!



Yeah ! Aaahhh Vacations!
Yeah ! The sun, the beach, we're so lucky! It's wonderful!
Bof... Time goes by so quick ...
Bof... Incredible! We've been on the road more than 6 months, already!!


''Fresh fish, si Senor! ''

One of the vendors that come by once or twice a week and sell fish, lobster, shrimps, scallops, jewlery, baskets, etc, etc...


Tonight we celebrate our reunion with Don and Mary (who we met in Richfield and again in Marysvale, Utah) and with Andy, Manon and Emma (Yes, yes the same guys who so kindly invited us to share their Christmas dinner).

It's Mary and Don who invited us to rendez-vous with them here. Thanks for letting us discover this beautiful place!


...And the days still fly by so quickly...


The next morning...

Aahh!! There's nothing quite like a little ATV ride (for a change) to enjoy the stunning scenery!


"WOW!" When you run out of words to say how pretty the place is...


"Ouff !!! Minnie, I sure hope you quit growing up pretty soon. If you don't stop getting bigger, we won't be able to see Mommy on the pictures anymore...


"Oh No! Now Minnie is getting into Daddy's bad habit...
Minnie! Get away from that cliff, PLEASE!!"


Our good friends, Don and Mary with Squeek.


What's most enjoyable in travelling with quads is that it gives us access to remote places and lets us discover wonderful spots. Like this beach here. Can't get here with a car...

"I think I'll go for a swim! Are you coming?"


Minnie does'nt care too much for the water... Never mind the waves of the Pacific ocean... She just sits on the seat and wait patiently.

Say! That does'nt leave much room for Mommy, does it? Does Polaris make 3 seaters quads?

"Hey Roberto! Pretty incredible! This guy flew from Mexico City to San José Del Cabo, rented a car and drove 1.5 hrs just to meet us! He wanted to learn more about our trip and see with his own eyes all the gear we have. He's planning on doing something similar in the near future. It was a short (Saturday 4pm to sunday 11am...) but very enjoyable and instructive visit for all of us. Roberto quadded across Baja twice already. He says we should be able to ride the beach from just north of Todo Santos almost to San Carlos. That's close to 250 miles (400kms) of beach!!!

"Good luck, Roberto!"


Los Cerritos is a favorite spot of surfers...

Living the good life in this little Paradise!!

Dû à la très faible disponibilité de bouffe fraîche, et aussi dans le but de pouvoir goûter les mets Mexicains locaux, nous avons décidé, pour la durée de notre séjour à Baja, de manger plus souvent au resto.

Si nous découvrons quelque chose d'extra-ordinaire, nous vous en ferons part.

Due to the very limited availability of fresh food and also to enjoy local Mexican food, we decided to eat at restaurants more often for the duration of our stay in Baja.

If we discover something worth mentionning,we'll let you know.

Aujourd'hui /Today:

Fluorescent chicken with orange potatoes!

Buy some pre-seasonned frozen chicken and cook the small potatoes in the same pan at the same time to save time. Result: Fluorescent chicken and orange potatoes!

Tastes funny at first, but after awhile, it glows on ya!






Les Oscars-The Oscars: le gagnant est... LA CHOSE LA PLUS APPRECIÉE:
