October 25, 2023 – Cabo San Lucas – Beautiful – Clear Skies – mid 80s.

Up early again for breakfast.  Besides another terrific breakfast, I had a postcard view of  Los Arcos from my seat.

After wading through a sea of misinformation, we found out that we did not need any tender tickets today.  After breakfast, we got into a huge line for the tenders.  The line, however, moved very fast and soon we were on a ship’s tender heading for Cabo tender port.  There are two other ships here today, the Navigator OTS and the Ruby Princess. 

The port looked pretty good considering the Hurricane Close Encounter.  There were lots of small boats but many of the large yachts had not yet returned.  We walked around the Marina, saw both the Cabo Marlin

and the "new" (I don't remember seeing it before) Cabo sign.  The town is now official.

We found the Beauty Spa that we have been to several times in the past.  This time, the place did not seem as shabby as I remembered it – the rooms were clean and there was no smell.  The two therapists, Jennie and Erika (aliases not doubt) were both very good.  We told them we would be back in a week or so and we would come back.  The spa had a $30 massage special going – we did tip each of them $10. 

We went next door to a Tequila Tasting Store where I tried new, gold, and chocolate tequila.  They were all really good.  Didn’t buy anything because I didn’t want to haul heavy bottles home.

The heat and lack of shade (the sun was pretty much overhead) forced us to head back to the ship for lunch.  On the way we bought some water for about $2 - the closer you got to the tender pier, the more expensive the water.  

On the ride back, I was able to get a picture of the sea lions lounging on the pier.

Back on board, we found a rare table in the shade on the back deck.  There was enough of a breeze to keep the temperature comfortable. 

We passed on the production show “Amade”.  We’ve seen this Mozart themed show before and honestly I did know what was going on during the show.

We spend the rest of the evening in the quiet of the open deck, where we watched the scenic sail away.

The ship will now make its way to San Diego, our next port of call.
