We're Back...

Greg and I took some much needed time away. We visited Baja and spent a week at each of the "cabos"- Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Over a year ago I purchased two timeshares on ebay(sounds crazy, but I researched them before bidding). One of them, the Hacienda del Mar, is located closer to Cabo San Lucas and the other, the Grand Mayan, has several locations sprinkled throughout Mexico. The newest Grand Mayan, located just outside San Jose, was completed a year ago. We stayed at the Hacienda del Mar for the first week and enjoyed the lovely grounds, architecture and pools.

The beach was beautiful, too.
Before moving on to our next stop, we visited Todos Santos up Highway 1 on the Pacific side. Todos Santos is called a "Magical town" in the tour books. There are many galleries..we purchased two prints by Jill Logan and spent some time chatting with her 

...before stopping by the Hotel California for a pleasant lunch on the patio. 

 As we transitioned from one hotel to the other, tropical storm Julio hit Los Cabos. We encountered flooded streets and experienced high wind and rain for a day.

Our second week was spent at the Grand Mayan, just outside San Jose del Cabo. It is much smaller the GM in Cancun but the staff and accommodations were perfect.

I did manage to do some knitting on this trip. The second Zombie Sock is well on the way and should be finished later this week. Another project that I knit on can't be mentioned yet as it will be a gift for someone special.

When we arrived home a package containing yarn was on top of the stack. I volunteered to to test knit a hat pattern for Cathy (a friend from sock camp). Currently it is called The Hat With No Name. It starts at the top with a circular cast on that is new to me...another challenge. Should be fun! More about this in days to come...
