Arrived in Cabo San Lucas (Ginger)

Our trip from Santa Maria was uneventful. We were able to sail for about 24 hours but motored the last 5 hours to get into Cabo before dark. We arrived in Cabo San Lucas at about 2:30 Saturday afternoon and though we were tired we headed straight to the fuel dock. We heard about a tropical depression that was potentially headed our way and wanted to be ready to leave this exposed anchorage if necessary. We made our way to the anchorage in front through the jet skis and parasail boats, dropped the hook, enjoyed a quick dinner and were in bed by 7:15PM. As anticipated Cabo is a busy, rolly unprotected anchorage. We got 2 new cruise ship neighbors in the anchorage this morning and many of the ha ha boats are leaving for more comfortable anchorages. The tropical depression fizzled so we'll stay here and clear into Mexico Monday morning and then head north to Los Frailes. We're looking forward to snorkeling on the Cabo Pulmo coral reef. Eventually we'll end up in La Paz where we'll do laundry, provision and, of course, complete some boat projects.
Happy birthday Grandma! Wish we were there to say that in person!
