We did have some excitement on our honeymoon. Our first flight left at 6am the morning after the wedding, so we asked for a 3:30am wake up call. Well, they didn't call! I woke up and looked at the clock at 3:42, and sat bolt upright in bed - we had to catch our shuttle at 4:00 sharp! We were out of that room in 10 minutes - talk about adrenaline rush.
For our honeymoon, Kyle and I went to Cabo San Lucas, on the very tip of the Baja peninsula in Mexico. We loved the green palms, rugged, scruffy mountains, and the orange, pink and red flowering bushes that we saw growing everywhere!
Our hotel was amazing! We tried out both pools, but mostly stuck with this smaller one on the "quiet side" of the hotel. Our gorgeous suite had two balconies overlooking the ocean.
We also spent a lot of time on the beach, walking and watching the waves and the whales. Cabo is right on a major migration route, so we saw lots of whales every day, usually pretty close in to shore. I had some good whale watching in Alaska, but we were just as close here, if not closer, just standing on the beach! I'm still not sure what kind of whales they were. We asked our waiter if they were blue whales, and he said "Si, si, whales!". We left it at that.
The hotel had five restaurants, which we tried in turn. This one was our favorite. I won't torture you all by describing the food, suffice it to say that it was beautifully presented and absolutely scrumptious!
We found this little creation in our bathroom one day - too cute!
Happy honeymooners! I had an absolutely fabulous time with my man. I am so blessed to have such a sweet husband! - GJ
