Thank you, Ricky's Dad.

Thank you for your great advice for our one day cruise stop in Cabo on our way to the Panama Canal. We had a wonderful day chasing whales. We would love to return to Cabo to spend more time there.

We have been to Cabo and went whale watching with a marine biologist group that studies the Humpbacks. They were so educational and told us a lot about them. They were also kind enough to take us around the Arco to the Pacific side where they showed us Grey Whales too. It was a fantastic day, we saw so much. It would be worth your while to go back Los Cabos is fun.

Thanks M Mom and O Mom, the Los Cabos area is really a beautiful and interesting playground to chill out 9 months of the year. Temperatures right now are in the low 80's and the whales are out in force - usually November through March. My understanding is that 7 different species of whale visit Cabo during the winter, but I have yet to see my first Orca there since they are quite rare in this area.

We will be driving down to Cabo (two day drive) in about 10 days for a month or so. Ricky is anxious to go because his favoritist Havadolly, CoCo, is waiting for him there. We live about 10 miles down the beach from Cabo San Lucas where there are few tourists and a quiet, easy going lifestyle. We are able to watch the whales and their antics - breaching, spy hopping, fluke slapping, etc. - from our veranda. The "little" calves, 6 to 8 feet long, remind me of Havapuppies, - full of energy, getting into mischief, friendly, and their Mommies trying to teach then how to survive in a potentially dangerous environment. Just as interesting is the sea turtle nesting migration from July to October. Females come up on our beach, the Costa Brava, to lay their eggs, buried in the sand and hasta pronto, about 6 weeks later, hundreds of little turtles, about two inches long, make their way back to the ocean, where only 5% survive their first week of life. There is always something interesting and fun going on.

Here are a couple of factoids about the world famous El Arco. The needle rock adjacent to El Arco is called "Neptune's Finger." If you, look closely, El Arco looks for all the world like a humpback dragon drinking from the ocean. Last, the beach on the Cabo side of El Arco is called Honeymoon Beach. The connecting beach on the Pacific side is called Divorce Beach!

Sorry our paths didn't cross while you were there. We and Ricky could have treated you to a real Mexican fiesta with botanas, bebides, tapas, y entremeses. If anyone is in the area, let us know, we may be in residence there.

Oh Popi, don't tempt me. We have been going to Los Cabos every year for years we just go for a week long get-a-way and we missed it last year because of Hershey coming into our lives. I am needing a Cabo fix for sure.

O Mom, we have lots of Canuck friends who live down here with us part time, mostly Vancouver and Edmonton. They all know Ricky and he insists on sitting on their laps, and sometimes they babysit him while we are "oot and aboot." Let us know when you come down.

Thanks Popi, such a kind offer, we live just outside of Calgary, so not far from your Edmonton friends. They are definitely missing a nasty winter this year, lucky folks.
