This was the best dinner I have ever had.
My clients Texan Uncle pushed himself back from the table and looked at us with a broad smile and eyes glistening. “Who would have ever thought it would be here in the middle of nowhere?” We all nodded in agreement under the palapa, surrounded by lush green tropical vegetation. The dirt road we took to get there probably felt like we were in Nowhereville but I knew better. We were in a paradisiacal oasis that Rand McNally calls Pescadero BCS not far from Cabo San Lucas.
Six days prior my client had closed on a beautiful property in the family friendly neighborhood of Magisterial in San Jose part of the general Cabo milieu. We waited his rooftop deck watching dusk settle on the Sea of Cortez for “Uncle Pete” to pull up. He had been driving the Baja Peninsula towards Cabo for four days from Dallas towing all of the valuable life necessities deemed too important to live without. The standards. A motorcycle, a washing machine, a commercial meat smoker along with various pieces of life’s accumulations and knick-knacks. I was fairly certain I saw a Super Bowl 27 Troy Aikman MVP Bobblehead doll.
No sooner than Pete walked through the front door was he preaching about how he passed the most amazing coastlines and beaches that required an immediate re-visit. His honest testimony was so convincing that my client booked me for a tour of Cerritos and Pescadero to find an ocean access lot to build on in the future. We scheduled for the next week and I suggested an appropriate place on the foyer for the porcelain George W. Bush bust before exiting.
We decided to take two cars and met at FreeSouls in Cerritos after the scenic 45 minute drive on the new toll road from San Jose. Pete had his first Clamato Preparado and swore to drink nothing else from that day forward… until we hopped over to Hacienda Cerritos and sampled their basil margarita. He was convinced the basil came from “Gods garden.”
Attending to business we explored the Coast, landing on the beach in San Pedrito after passing what seemed like endless fields of kale, peppers, and mangoes. Each lot looked like a worthy candidate for a lifetime of stress-free enjoyment. At one point Uncle Pete moaned that it was a shame people wait for retirement until they are too old to truly enjoy it.
Satisfyingly exhausted from the days adventure they followed me off of the highway and down a dirt road to a restaurant that we had to ask to confirm they were open. The chef greeted us with a wooden box proudly displaying the days catch. One hour later Pete made his proclamation…
There are so many once in a lifetime moments that occur every day when living in Los Cabos that it can sometimes take a newbie to remind us how lucky we truly are to no longer only imagine we live here.
