Souvenirs at Cabo

I've never bargained over prices before - it was a whole new ballgame! I did not hassel over this gorgeous fan but they were the best price in Cabo compared to Puerta Vallarta.

I did, however, bargain for these beautiful Mexican opal earrings and if you know me at all, you know that I love earrings.  These are beyond my ability to make but perhaps in the future, I may learn how to do insets and how to work with metals.
Notice how they have the colors of the ocean - my camera cannot do them justice! These are not for sale - they are mine, all mine.

This area is where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean.

Closer view of the cave on the tip
This gigantic floating hotel was our home base for seven days. I walked from one end of the ship to the other at least a dozen times and Sandy and I noticed that you could never see the end of the hall - it went on and on just like in one of Dr. Who's episodes where he seemed to be climbing stairs and more stairs like when a computer goes into a macro repeating stint over and over with the same function.

I LOVE the fan! I'm wearing that colour purple today,but our weather today is not conducive to fan fluttering.

More gorgeous photos and I like your blue earrings. So is purple your favorite color? Did you make all those earrings on Esty? Nice ship!
