Camping in Cabo: A Photo Essay

This year for Passover we're spending our holiday with my good friend Rabbi Benny and his wife Sonya Hershcovich - the Chabad Shluchim to Los Cabos, Mexico on the tip of Baja California. (You can give 'em a tip and help their amazing work here - tell them I sent you!)

Our gracious hosts suggested camping on at the tip of the peninsula - where the Sea of Cortes and the Pacific Ocean meet.

Though I'm dreadfully behind on sharing photos - pictures of New Orleans, Israel and even Mendel's Bris(!) idle away on my hard-drive, the photos of our boat ride to Land's End and the Cabo Arch at the tip of the peninsula, and of our early morning walk after spending the night camping on the shore, are too good to pass up.

That night we camped on the beach - and had a Passover style Kumzitz. The waves on Lovers Beach, named for the calm waters of the Sea of Cortes, lulled us to sleep.

In the morning Chana and I went for a walk with the children on the two beaches.

Buenos Días Mexico!

The path to the Pacific
The others side of the peninsula is the Pacific side. The tumultuous waters and strong rip current  make swimming very dangerous. The Pacific-side beach, then, is aptly named Divorce Beach.

Mendel is a real camper!
