CABO!!

Whale sighting, dolphins, seals and terns greeted us in the early morning as we arrived in Cabo Thursday? am after a long 24 hours of motoring.
We're at the Cabo Marina smack dab in the middle of big sportfisher boats, tourists, water taxis, glass bottom boats and music until 430am at Squid Roe and Cabo Wabo.  The Baja Ha Ha fleet is starting to disperse, as crew fly home, other boats anchor out and plans for "after Cabo" emerge.
As expected, the final celebrations are underway with the Awards Ceremony tonight.  We heard that everyone wins. 
Yesterday was a great beach party at the main Medano Beach, which included wristbands for entrance, a delicious buffet, cold beers and margaritas all around white tablecloths and chairs, and umbrellas.  Very civilized and an extreme difference from the temporary outhouse set up for all of us 2 days ago at Santa Maria.  Rob and I escaped for a bit to try out the swings at the neighboring open bar with friends.
Dan's wife, Betsy, is here from the Bay Area to soak up a little Mexican sun and visit.  We'll have a few days of exploring together before Bert heads off to home. 
Today we will be looking at Mexican phones today, going to the ATM and exploring the downtown area, with some target restaurants in mind for lunch.  After serving up many lunches and dinners en route, our  trusty refrigerator is being defrosted now.  I have proclaimed that the "galley is closed".

Dan and Rob go for a swim 15 miles from shore
