OK so I didn't go there by bike but still..... it was a trip so here is my report...in Five parts..
Cabo trip Report I
Well IÔÇÖm back from Cabo San Lucas and Jeanne and I had a blast. I took a ton of photos and have only just started to get them organized, but I did put some the more the interesting ones in a web gallery on my site.
Saw and did a lot really interesting sights and got a taste some great local food, so much so its hard to decide where to start my reportÔÇª.
First off let me say that as with every trip no matter how well prepared you are there is always so much more to do than you can possibly fit into a single week that Jeanne and I are already talking about a return trip. Turns out too we couldnÔÇÖt have picked a better week, just the week prior there had been a major fishing tournament that attracts a huge crowd, which by the time we arrived had most left so we didnÔÇÖt have to deal with really large crowds of tourists. Thing were pretty quiet witch gave us more space on the beach and we got some great deals on items we bought.
This was the first time we had stayed at the time-share we bought and it couldnÔÇÖt have been a better location, right on the beach, with a balcony from which we could see the beach and Lands Ends, which is the furthest point south on the Peninsula, and view behind us looking at the city and mountains beyond.

Each morning we were treated to some gorgeous sunrisesÔÇª
And each morning a Bald eagle would join us as we enjoyed the view and some great Mexican coffee as he preached on an adjoining building roof top
Some days just enjoyed the beach, lounging in recliners enjoying a few beers and as always when I got enjoy a good Cuban cigar. We quickly discovered that what they refer to as ÔÇ£appetizersÔÇØ were so generous that they often severed as an entire meal. We also discovered that ÔÇ£happy hourÔÇØ two for one beers last pretty much all day! Now thatÔÇÖs my kind of happy hour! Note the size of the appetizer plate in this shot.

As usual there were a ton of venders everywhere, along the beach, in town, to and from town and in the little villages we visited. We have gotten used to this in our travels and have learned that as long as you donÔÇÖt engage them in conversation and just keep going with a simple ÔÇ£noÔÇØ youÔÇÖll do fine. I still amazes me how much some can carry, like this guy on the beach, not sure how he can see where heÔÇÖs going.
Other days we wondered down to the main section of town and the Marina, a mere 5 minutes away. As such we never bothered to rent a car, really no need too and the one trip we took into the mountains we did as part of a small 8 person tour with a very good driver and guide. As such we probably learned more than had done it on our own, plus her knew some interesting little towns and spoke very good English. Next time we go we now know where to head to so can do a trip on own on and take time to stay longer.
Besides lots of eagles, there were a ton of brown pelicans, hereÔÇÖs one doing something I have never seen one do before, I knew they could open they beaks wide, but this is almost unreal!
While this one seems to be ÔÇ£tuning upÔÇØ in preparation to belt out a tune!
One evening the time share put on a ÔÇ£Mexican PartyÔÇØ with a marimba band and local dance Troup that did some traditional Mexican dances and a Mayan Dance of the Dead (as it falls on the same day as our Halloween)
And it ended with some fireworks in the background as they performed the final dance.
