Around the Cape

 

We made a longer stop this time through Le Triunfo,

Fabiola Avile

meeting Fabiola Avile who is an artisan and entrepreneur promoting friends’ art and some food items like Liquer de Damiana and Sea Salts with or without seasonings like Pimientas or Chiles along with the coolest wooden salt grinders sort of like a mortar & pestle with grooves on the end of the pestle.

We visited the caffe which is a fantastic bakery & restaurant.

Caffe El Triunfo

The sourdough breads had fantastic texture (& became the basis of today’s lunch) and their sticky buns and white chocolate cookies looked very yum but we skipped those.  The courtyard was very inviting for a casual lunch….maybe sometime Everette and I can stop in for a date.

Unique art decorated the walls and ceilings.  You know we’ve been traveling awhile when we discuss how nice the bano is……but it would be considered dumpy in North American standards.  Jackpot……they had toilet paper, and it was soft and 3 ply!!!

Le Triunfo is a very quaint town in the hills, with beautiful cobblestone streets, painstaking stone/tile handiwork, artists galleries, and fancy false ‘store’ fronts to empty lots.  Anders insisted I see the mision (church) that his dad took him thru last week when we stopped here….its becoming common for him to request a stop at misions he sees in almost every town.

Our destination today was Todos Santos which we arrived in around noon.  We ate curb side the sourdough from Cafe Le Triunfo then wandered through the flea market.  Mostly clothes, both used and new.  Nothing we were looking for, although we need to find new outfits for Maret as the sun and water seems to have made her sprout!

We headed south to Le Pescadero but thought if the wind picks up any more than what we had already found it would be another sleepless night.  This Pacific coast is not good for swimming but is great for surfing so our water enjoyment would be limited.  We were told that the rocks are very slippery, barnacles plentiful, and rip tides strong.  We watched whales from a distance then moved on.

We drove through Cabo San Lucas & on to San Jose del Cabo and were heading onward to Los Frailes.  We had conflicting instructions on which route was best for us to get to Los Frailes, and dark had fallen.  So we opt for what’s familiar….Agua Caliente.  We can find that in the dark.
