Adios Cabo, hola San Jose del Cabo y Bahias Frailes y Bahias de los Muertos

On Friday, Nov. 22, we finally motored out of Cabo after two weeks.  Our transmission is purring like a kitten, yea!!!!


4 hours later, after motoring all the way because of no wind, we pulled into a beautiful and QUIET marina.  No party boats blaring techno music ( I know that makes us sound old) and no fisherman gasing up at 5:00 in the morning.


Sadly, as we docked and settled in, Bill started feeling really crumby.  I succumbed a couple of days later…Montezuma’s Revenge!!! The quiet marina was a blessing.  We did feel well enough to venture into the town of San Jose Del Cabo on Sunday, to watch the Grey Cup (Canada’s Super Bowl).  I saw on the map a sports bar, so we went there hoping that maybe one TV would be dedicated to the Grey Cup.  Well…as we entered, EVERYONE, was dressed in green…Saskatchewan Rough Rider fans!!  The bar also was owned by Canadians, they are everywhere, those ‘crazy canucks’ as Bill calls them.IMG_3063 IMG_3066

We lasted through the first half and some rain and them cabbed it back to the boat.  We were good, other than that, for a few half day jaunts as we tried to recover and wait for good sailing weather.  San Jose Del Cabo is a charming town with a real focus on art and artists and the marina is part of a whole planned community, which is really lovely.

Feeling better, we pulled out of San Jose del Cabo on Wednesday, Nov. 27 to great weather and winds until we rounded the cape and then it was as an uphill bash until we reached Bahias Frailes, a sheltered bay.  This is were we celebrated Thanksgiving*, swimming, touring in our dinghy and enjoying the perfect day. (*leftover Salmon for dinner).

A side note….

  3. tea and coffee
  4. the new bbq
  5. farmacias and anti diaherra pills
  6. being able to fart without worry  (having just survived Motezuma’s revenge)
  7. warm water and air when the rough water comes overboard and sprays us
  8. wind
  9. no wind
  10. dry bed
  11. remembering to close the hatch to keep the bed dry
  12. a full tank of gas

  1. Sounds likw you’re sailing in our footsteps. We also had Thanksgiving dinner in Frailes. We loved Frailes and Muertos. Did you go upstairs in the restaurant in Muertos to see the model train displays?

    Glad to hear you’re finally making way. Laurine & I cooked Thanksgiving dinner on-board the S/V Tartanic at Cortez. Turkey, stuffing, corn pudding, mashed potatoes, gravy and cranberry. It was a quiet day at the Marina. Had a blast at the Commodores ball over at the Coronado Cays YC. Will be back out for the YC Christmas party Dec 15 and the boat parade light show. Sounds like you both are having a great adventure indeed .I enjoyed Kim’s posts. Extremely envious BTW.
