And So We Got To See Cabo
So when the negotiations were settled we loaded into a van for 8. We had plenty of room.
Highway 1 is the only highway in the Baja Peninsula. It would take us all the way to California, so it's hard to get lost around these parts.
We saw many resorts along the coast of the Pacific Ocean and many more in the process of getting built.
We were headed to San Jose del Cabo - the main city, where gov't offices are located as well as the airport.
As the road curves, there was a little overlook. We stopped so he could show us the resorts/hotels lining the shores of the Sea of Cortez.
We asked to see the city center of San Jose del Cabo. He dropped us infront of this church, which I learned from the sign is a Mission. Imagine that! Another collection to my mission churches photos.
There is very little information about the mission from the sign outside; however, it said that 2 of the Jesuit missions of California were dedicated to San Jose and this was one of them.
It was a quiet afternoon and there were two people inside plus us. Outside I saw an old lady selling some little knick knacks. We bought some.
And this plaza area is pedestrianized, so we planned to use our alloted time to explore it by foot and take all the shots we could take. We were not keen on sampling any food here - too touristy for our taste :)
Gazebo so very pretty.
I did not investigate closer to see what's on sale here.
Busts around the fountain area.
And more colors. The clock tower is the city hall.
Where are the tourists?
We went inside the city hall.
Upon entry, I saw a courtyard inside the building, alfresco.
Locals conducting their business in the city hall.
And then we thought we'd walk some more and that's when I shot these:
There wasn't much to do around here other than shopping and eating, and we already had our fill of photography, so we asked to be brought back to Cabo San Lucas in the hope of exploring more of the marina area.
On the drive back, my husband asked to be taken to a local hangout, where the driver himself gets his meals when he's working. So we were taken to a roadside little place called Blue Marlin where the food was excellent and the 'chef' was hospitable and very friendly.
The chef and his assistant goofing around infront of my camera.
A little snack to tide us over - but what flavors!
The tour is not over just yet. To be continued.
