We went to Todos Santos on Friday. We left around 8:30. It turns out that was a little early. We got to town around 10 and the town was just waking up and shops were beginning to open. It was a beautiful drive the town was lovely, lots of green, some what of an oasis. We parked in front of the old church went in there first. We walked the town going into shops and galleries. It was nice to walk and not get dragged into the shops. We took our time and alot of stuff we liked but did not buy anything. We tried a few galleries that were off the main drag but they were no open. When lunch came, we looked into a few places, includeing Cafe Santa Fe, which was a little expensive for lunch, and we settled in at Tequila Sunrise. Beautiful little place accross from the Hotel California. The owner Manuel treated us like we were the most imortant people there, eveything is organic, the food was great. And at the end, we wrote our names on the wall, look for MGOBLUE, Bob, Sue, Lori, Kevin on the eastern wall where the yellow and gold come together.
On the trip back to CSL, I wanted to stop at the beach, km 65, but no one else did. But we did try to stop ar Arts and Beers, but everything looked closed up and did not see anyone around. I am not sure if they open up later or what. All the gates were closed. So we went on
After lunch back at the resort, the others went to the pool. I went to town to buy a CSL Policia t-shirt from the Fire Dept. stand. The fire Dept's down there are not publicly funded so they rely on fundraisers. I bought one last time, but that one is on its last legs. But the booth was closed. So I went to Solmar and climbed the rocks to Divorce Beach. I have been saying on this forum that it is difficult climb over from when I did it last time. So I climbed up the first pile of roack and was standing there and another gentleman followed me up. We were standing there and he asked me if the sand we were seeing was the beach. I did not think so, remembering how hard it was last time. Se there is a little slide of 3-4 feet to start to get down, and when I finilly got to the small strip of sand, I walked down to the water and sure enough, it was the beach over those rocks. I timed the waves and walked in between the rocks and onto the beach. 10-15 minutes tops. I think last time the tide was higher and i could not get around those rocks. I remember trying. I had to climb up over them and there is not an easy way down onto the beach from them. Getting back was just as easy, just timing the waves (and the waves were huge Friday and Saturday).
That night were ate at Cabo Wabo. Someone on this forum heard they had good steak and one of our friends heard that they had good food. The steak was very good, and the other threee had a couple of different shrimp dishes which they liked as well.
We left on Saturday. We had a case of water left over. We decided to leave it with friends of ours staying another week at the time shares at the Sheraton. While my friend was running it up to them, some in a van stopped and ask how the car was treating us. Thinking it was some stranger, I said fine, thought it was a little weird. It turned out it was Dominic. We got out of our cars and started talking. I told him about our little mishap at the airport and he refunded my $20. I learned he has an army buddy he keeps in touch with in the suburb next to ours. He also suffered a heart attack in January, but he looks great now. So he took all our luggage in his van, he had one other pick up on the way to the airport, and he paid our toll on the way to the airport. What a great guy,very nice, go talk to him if you get the chance.
So that is it. Thank you all for your help. Without TA, i would not have found Dominic, Traun, Todos Santo and many other things.
What I probably do next time is to do the tequila tasting at Panchos (I said that last time), get a ride in the Americ'a Cup boat, and eat at different restuarants such as the Original Park. I would aslo do a hikeing trip into the mountians with a group I found in Todos Santos, see the forests and streams and waterfalls up there. And if I get my certification, maybe scuba dive off the east coast.
Thanks again everyone, see you in 2 years I hope.
