A Magical Night in Cabo San Lucas

How does that saying by Robert Browning goes?

"Grow old with me! The best is yet to be."


Magical Night in Cabo San Lucas
Once upon a time - for that's how all stories should begin - in the middle of a magical night under the glistening moonlight while the ocean waves lapped the sand nearby...

Love gives me a fairy tale.

But I'm getting ahead of myself.

Last Friday I struggled to get myself out of bed to make the 8AM flight. I had been feeling under the weather all week. The thought of spending hours at the airport was not very appealing but a Valentine's weekend getaway to Cabo San Lucas makes it all worth while.

Having spent 8 hours total at airports, Chris & I arrived at Los Cabos half an hour before the sun set.

The drive from the airport to the resort was quite long to say the least.
But the view was not so bad. Wouldn't you agree?

We arrived at Playa Grande Resort just as the moon illuminates its light.
It was a relieved to have finally climbed out of a moving vehicle & stretched my legs.

Chris checked us in & we made our way to the suite.
My jaw dropped the moment I walked through the door.
Chris surprised me, yet again.

The staff did a fine job hand folded these swans & red pebbel rocks arrangement.
"Happy" was an understatement.
I was swooning with joy & excitement.

Then I find another surprise waiting for me.
This gorgeous view from our balcony.

Having ooo'd & ahhh'ed I made a quick change of clothing & we dashed out the door to explore the marina.

Everything was lit up prettily and I was mesmerized.
But my tummy was growling angrily.
We popped in and out of restaurants along the marina for appetizers & drinks.
First stop, Solomon's Landing.

The place was bustling with couples on their date.
It was filled with Valentine's decor & live band music.

We grabbed a seat by the bar & ordered our margaritas.

Best Margarita in town

Salted rim for me.
None for Chris.

These margaritas were the best of all the places we had that night.
Fresh.
Full of flavor.
With plenty of tequila.
Just the way I like it.

For snacks we went for ceviche tacos.

These ceviche tacos were deliciously fresh.
And the crunchy taco shell added wonderfully nice texture.

Next up, Baja Cantina.

No Valentine's decoration here.
Just lit up lanterns hanging in the trees & different t-shirts from around the world hang on the ceiling.
And TVs showing college basketball games.

Along with our margaritas, we ordered a plate of Jalapenos cheese balls to snack on.

These fried balls were not too bad.
They oozed cheesy goodness all over.
But I wouldn't order them again.

Having our fair share of margaritas we explored the marina & its surrounding some more.

And around the corner from the marina is Medano Beach.

The night was absolutely stunning.

And snuggled down at this restaurant for a beer or two.

Everything was just peaceful & perfect.
We grabbed our beers and plopped down in the sand on the beach for some alone time.

And that's when Chris proposed to me.
Under the glowing moon with twinkling lights and ocean waves lapping three feet away.
It was a fairy tale comes true.

Afterward we grabbed another margarita at The Office couple restaurants down.
