An Ice Trucker has got to be the coolest job (sorry) but then it got me thinking - Was that his real job, or had he just watched the TV series and let his imagination get the better of him? Making up new identities could be a great way to overcome the table talk tedium. The only risk is that you find yourself sitting next to Eddie Stobbart and he gives you a grilling about axle weights and gear ratios
Our first port of call is Cabo San Lucas. It used to be an isolated Mexican town on the tip of the Baja peninsular until they decided to build a highway linking up with California. Now it is like any other modern resort with a Marina full of fancy boats and new apartment buildings. The good news was we didn't have much time in Cabo, partly because the ship didn't drop anchor until 11.45 but mainly due to the fact that we had to be tendered off the ship and the last tender returned to the ship at 5.15pm. As usual the passengers on the organised tours were taken off first and the rest of us had to queue for tickets. We were told that they would be available from 12.15 and I suggested to Minnie that we should arrive 15 mins earlier so that we would get a good place in the queue. Which is what we did and our ticket numbers were 359 and 360!!. Well it was 1.30 before we were called to board our tender for the 5 minute shuttle ride to the Marina.
It didn't take long to walk the length of the Marina so we found a bar, enjoyed a large Margarita and picked up our emails. We were back on board the ship by 4.
We have now got three days at sea.
