December 2022 - Cabo Area, Back to Work, Xmas and NYE in Calgary

In this month I touched the shores of Cabo San Lucas and area passing Todos Santos on the way, flew back to for work in Kamloops, spent the Holidays with my mom and friends. Bonus flight cancelation by Westjet allowed me the opportunity drive the snowy Rocky Mountains back to Calgary.

Beginning of the month my time in La Paz had come to an end and before I flew back to Canada for work Clau, Lalo and I went to Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo for a few nights.

Loaded and ready
Bye Bye La Paz

Ever watch a pigeon eat...very spaztic

Out at the local mezcaleria in La Paz
Cool guys at El Parnazo

Quick few stops on the way to Cabo San Lucas (200 km day C3,R7,T2,V7/8).  Todos Santos first.

Finally got a shot of the La Paz Whale Tail

Some how this is the
highway out of town

Nice divided FREE highway

Still some cheaper land, areas

In to Todos Santos

Yeah really, Hotel California is here
Unfortunately the town was 
over hyped

Trying to be Europe, but not quite...
Hotel Cali Tourists

And this guy's a guitar player?
Take a seat guys while I change

Colourful streets

Back on the road for a minute with all my gear on again; then a lunch stop at Cerritos Beach. I didn't think that through very well.

Reminds me when a bed flew out of my truck

Less fun sandy roads

Can't get this far with the moto.


Only resto on the beach

Not horrible
Nice to have some mountain areas

Yeah, whales

Nice road

Made it to Cabo

Great beach bar , sweet music with Eduardo's University buddy, Daniel.

San Jose del Cabo

Pricey tacos with a killer show at Lupita.

Me, Clau, Lalo, Daniel
my smile bigger seeing
normal prices, haha

A day on the water to the Arc.

Definitely full and expensive marina
Ready to get on the High Sea

What a location

Charter boats

Tour boats

Party boats

That's it, that's Cabo San Lucas

Where everyone wants to go
Swam to shore to do a cartwheel
Lalo, Clau, Alvaro
Smart seals
Fancy spot at El Sur

An unexpected Nashville Song Writers show for free (Dark Water Band, David Ryan Harris, Patrick Davis, others and Tim Nichols "Live Like We Were Dying" bought by Tim McGraw).  But the drinks were $15usd each so...not so free and I was dumb enough to tip on top of our tips... Total 30% tipsy.

Didn't once get to use the pool, bye

Blue Demon left With Henry K, worth a bottle!

Damn comfortable flight,
for once between Mex and Can.

Happy to be back

Happy Noon Years Eve and New Years Eve too.  One for the seniors and one for the middle of the roaders.

Mom so excited to see Elvis!

First in the King's younger years in black leathers at Grey Eagle Casino.  Check it out, I'm still not sure if its his voice or not?

Then in his later Vegas years in a white jump suit. A really good show and good way to pass lunch time on New Years Eve Day...Oh and of course bingo!

So fun

Old hat for mom.  Another win!

Went to a little gathering in Deer Run near Fish Creek Park.  At 12am we braved the cold to set off some fireworks at the park thanks to Christina's BF.  And thanks to Vero for having a great meal and gathering!
