SATURDAY, APRIL 30TH
THE WRAP PARTY

5:00 a.m.
I couldn't sleep.
I figured I would get ready to disembark.
Shower first, cup of joe second.

5:45 a.m.
Went up for coffee, and Mike hit me with some waffles.
They hit the spot perfectly.
I excused myself to finish packing.

6:30 a.m.
I'm ready to get off.

6:45 a.m.
We settle our tabs in the galley.

7:00 a.m.
The engines slow as we approach Cabo harbor.

8:30 a.m.
A bunch of us hop aboard a water taxi and hit the beach.
We scatter.
A couple of us end up at Capt. Tony's on the Pier.
We hang out, drink coffee, watch the TV, catch up on the news.
Warlord calls home.

11:00 a.m.
Bored, we head for the airport early.
Good thing, boy, it's crowded with spring breakers heading home.

After negotiating the security checkpoints, Warlord and I find a place for a bite to eat.
Lucky us, our waitress is the prettiest girl in the building.

4:00 p.m.
It's good to be home.
Again.

STRIKING THE SET!

7:00 a.m.
Going back to work, I'm stiff walking up the hill to my office, but I'm happy and healthy overall.
No complaints at all. I'm enjoying the high that comes after a good trip.
It doesn't last forever, so enjoy it while you can.

On the freeway.

At the landing.
Say "hi" to the fellas.

The boat arrives.
We unload our gear and observe the unloading of our precious cargo.

10:20 a.m.
Breakfast at the Fig Tree Cafe.
MMMMMMMMMM-good.

11:30 a.m.
Pick up fish at Fisherman's Processing.
Honey & I drove home, making stops along the way to deliver fresh fish to family and friends.

6:00 p.m.
Home again.
Tonight, the best sashimi we've ever had.

9:00 p.m.
Good night now!
And Good bye now!

Finally, I can get back to work! Thank you very much Joe, that was incredibly entertaining - nearly as entertaining as Steph Curry's performance last night. The gag on the Captain was truly impressive - "you have Extra-Large huevos!"

Nice write up Loreto! I could have stayed home and almost had the same experience.

For those who've never fished with Joe, he's a great guy with whom to share a rail. I look forward to fishing with him in the future.

Thanks Warlord,
I couldn't have done it without you.
As far as sidekicks go... you're no Kid...
but I'd use you in a pinch
Many would disagree with your statement.
Let's just hope we can both make it to the rail again some day.

I like that name for you.

Muchos thank-youz for another great report. Keep up the good work!

One with a good ice maker I hope

Being in the tropics is bunk chicken with out ice for those who drink.

Thanks again

Absolutely FABULOUS Joe. And I agree with a previous post. You should put all of your reports into a book. As well as whatever other embellishments you can come up with. You are a VERY talented writer, and story teller.
On another note, I would have LOVED to see Brian back peddling when you got hold of him. That was FUNNY !!!!!! Not very often you get a skipper to bite, but you let him swallow the entire rig! Again, Thank you so much for such an entertaining report. Hope to see you again soon....

So enjoyed it Joe!
It's been a real kick reading about your adventures from your 'handing over your man card' outing to your recent 16 oz. gift partaking/get even scheme. (Actually know a guy that won't go on one particular boat a/c the ice machine broke down.....once!)
Thanks:cheers:
