We are back! I had a wonderful time on the Mayercraft 2 cruise (John Mayer, Guster, O.A.R. and others). We left on Friday afternoon out of L.A., docked in Cabo, Mexico for a the day on Sunday, and returned to L.A. on Tuesday morning.
When we were in Cabo we decided to do a cruise excursion – horseback riding! After a 30-minute drive in a freezing (air conditioned) bus, we were on a farm by the sea. I saddled up and got to ride “Toro“, while Bobby rode “Pepe“.
We rode a desert path out to the beach and proceeded to ride up and down the shore while two adorable mutts nipped at our horses’ heels. I want a puppy. After we rode back to the ranch we milled around with $2 Coronas and limes. We even got to see a camel (Camels in Mexico? I guess!). Her name was “Suba“.
On the customs form that we had to fill out when we returned:
11. Mark an X in the Yes or No box. Are you bringing with you (d) soil or you have visited a farm/ranch/pasture outside the United States?
12. Mark an X in the Yes or No box. Have you or any family members traveling with you been in close proximity of (such as touching or handling) livestock outside the United States?
Sketchy! We said no on both. We didn’t want to be quarantined for riding horses.
What excursions have you done on a cruise? What would be your ideal excursion?
(And don’t worry, food is coming! I just need to dedicate some serious time to getting a major food post organized. For now enjoy the horses.)
