I had forgotten that Cabos San Lucas was a tender port. I don’t actually remember much from the cruise Noah and I took in April. I suspect that I didn’t get off the ship at all. Certainly I wasn’t in the mood for a tender operation. When Carmen and I came through on the Star Princess, I vaguely remember going from the ship’s tender down the dock and onto the whale watching zodiac that had been organized ahead of time.
This time I just took the tender in and set out from the port. I figured that if I walked a reasonable distance from the ship I would be able to find a cafe for coffee and wifi. If I strolled far enough, there wouldn’t be a lot of other cruise ship passengers competing for time and space. Down the long avenue and up a couple of side street and I found a lovely little place called the Giggling Bean. They had extremely strong coffee, they had wifi. They had a four footed vacuum cleaner who wandered his fat self around to check out all the new customers. He decided I was good for a scratch but totally inadequate in the food offering department. Personally, I didn’t think he really needed anything else to eat. I spent a pleasant couple of hours getting this, that and the other thing updated followed by a meander back to the ship.
It was both warm (32*C) and extremely humid accompanied by bright sunshine. Photogray glasses were good, sunblock was even better. It was honestly nice to get back into the ship’s A/C.
Dinner was a progressive affair; we sampled the food in the Tapas Bar, then went on to the sports bar. As it turns out, it is the Sports Bar which is open all night in case one gets the munchies pretty much eliminating the need for after-hours room service unless you just can’t stand the thought of wings, hot dogs, soup or dip in the middle of the night.
Oh, and cheesecake. That would make an excellent 0300 snack.
