Vacation to Cabo San Lucas

For the first time ever I got to go on a vacation with my sister. We thought about visiting several places like Florida, New York, or Canada and we decided on Cabo San Lucas Mexico.

I’d never been there before. Only been to Mexico City for an install once at Televisa Studios. My sister however has been to Cabo and other places in Mexico before and she speaks fairly fluent Spanish too.

We met up in Los Angeles where we flew out to Cabo on a late morning flight.

While working in Memphis Tennessee last month I got a chance to visit and walk around famous Beale Street, home of the American Blues music.

After walking around the street for a while, checking out both sides of the street and all the shops and restaurants along the couple of short blocks, my co-worker and I decided to grab some lunch and so we headed into B.B. King’s Blues Club.

Beale Street, Memphis TN

January 2018

Put on my blue suede shoes
And I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the pouring rain
W.C. Handy, won’t you look down over me
Yeah, I got a first class ticket
But I’m as blue as a boy can be
Then I’m walking in Memphis
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis
But do I really feel the way I feel?
– Marc Cohn
(Read on to see my favorite Beale Street photos)
