Oh man, so kidding on that one! Though I’d say half of our flight was full of college spring breakers ready to party and drink the nights away…ah, to be 18 again! Luckily, my gal pals and I took a trip to Cancun our senior year so I’d already gotten ‘that’ Mexico out of my system.
But now I’m back with the fam in tow. We’re just finishing up day two here in Cabo del Sol, which included me sitting by the pool the ENTIRE day. One book down, four to go. The resort is very nice, right on the beach of course, and is pretty empty. I figured we’d have a few spring breakers, but I haven’t spotted any yet. The pool is maybe 30% full at its peak and the beach has the occasionally passerby. Not bad for ultimate relaxation. We walked down the beach this afternoon to watch the surfers; there are some big waves out there.
I plan to spend the next few days poolside until I get really bored then I’m sure we’ll try out a few activities. Liz wants to ride horses on the beach and I want to try some zip lining. I think we’re also going to go deep sea fishing too. Ahhh…Mexico!
Photo: View from our balcony. Could be worse….I guess the resort at the very end is La Palmilla, which is where all the celebs stay. I’ll have my eyes peeled…..
It’s been a busy few days getting ready to leave for Cabo. In lieu of my departure (Sunday at 10:30am – but whose counting really?) I am leaving you with this recipe for homemade tortilla chips, which I hope to be eating poolside with margaritas, of course!
Homemade Tortilla Chips
Ingredients: Corn tortillas Vegetable oil Salt Chili Powder Garlic Salt Pepper Pretty much any other spices you like Parchment paper or foil
Directions: Pre-heat over to 375 degrees. Using a pastry brush, lightly coat each side of a corn tortilla with oil. Stack and cut into 8 pieces. Place chips on a cookie sheet lined with foil or parchment paper (whatever you’ve got handy). Season chips with chosen spices. Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven, turn ’em all over then bake for an additional 7 minutes. Remove from oven and serve!
