South of the Border

Edwin and I have never done the resort vacation before. Our vacations are typically not vacations – they’re trips where we’re trying to see and experience as much as possible. So it was a totally new and foreign (no pun intended!) concept for us to spend three nights at the Sheraton Hacienda Del Mar resort in Los Cabos for a wedding weekend.

Now, there is plenty to do in Los Cabos, but a lot of it happens to involve being on a boat or in choppy waters. This is a problem for me since every day I age, I get more easily seasick. I’ve tried taking Dramamine, but it only served to knock me out. Because of my fear of getting sick, Edwin and I spent nearly all of our free time relaxing poolside at our resort. It was much how I would expect a vacation on a cruise boat would be – everything you could possible need in a self-contained area, which made me feel a little restless. I’m not sure if I got a lot of relaxing done (I woke up every morning and checked the clock before going back to sleep. It read 7:56am all three mornings I did this), but I definitely got some sun and did some leisure reading!

I did manage to sneak slightly off the property to snap a few photos…



Not once did we see people swimming in the ocean just outside the resort. Taking a look at the huge waves and how close they crashed to shore, we knew why it wasn’t the ideal place for a leisurely swim.

There are vendors who spend the whole day on the beach trying to get your attention to sell some of their wares. It’s clearly hard work with the baja sun beating down on them.


But the real reason we were in Cabo was to attend Lisa & Tony’s wedding! You may remember my post about their engagement shoot. I’ll be posting about their wedding soon, but for now, here’s a sneak peak at the weekend festivities…
