Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, seemed a lot more crowded when I came here for the week between Christmas and New Year’s 2008.
The yachts in the marina look smaller. The shops and restaurants, less ambitious.
Clearly, the U.S. economy has taken its toll on local tourism, despite some great deals on resort packages and nearly 13 pesos for a dollar. The whales keep coming, though. Despite their huge brains, or maybe because of them, they don’t care what the economy does.
I’m trying not to work too much on vacation, but thought I’d share these shots of humpbacks that I took from a boat while on a snorkeling trip on Sunday.
