A Cabo sunrise looks even more special if you watch it from Medano Beach
with a view of the Land’s End rocks towering out of the water just to
the right of the rising sun.
This past week, we went on a short trip to Cabo San Lucas at the southern tip of Baja California Peninsula
in Mexico. On the first morning, I got to see (and film) the sun rise
out of the Sea of Cortez – slowly lighting up, and thus revealing,
Land’s End. Because it was our first morning in Cabo San Lucas, I felt
extremely lucky that I managed to set the camera up in a way that
actually showed the sun in frame once it came up – even though I
couldn’t be sure exactly where it would rise in the dark.
Conveniently, we stayed at the lovely Pueblo Bonito Los Cabos Beach Resort
right on Medano Beach, which allowed us amazing views of Land’s End
every day. The only thing missing from our previous trip to Cabo, when
we stayed in San José del Cabo.
Cabo sunrise was the beginning of Scott’s birthday, and proved to be a
sign of a perfect day to come. I will share more of that day and the
entire Los Cabos trip next week.
A little insider information:
Scott was on a fishing boat heading out into the Pacific during the Cabo
sunrise. This means that he is on one of the boats you see entering
frame from the right and going around the tip of Land’s End before
disappearing behind the rocks and heading out into the open sea.
of the unique things about Cabo San Lucas is that it straddles Baja
California, with the Sea of Cortez on the east side and the Pacific
Ocean on the west side. So not only did we get to watch the sun rise out
of the water in the morning of Scott’s birthday, we also got to see the
sun set in the Pacific from another beach that same day – without ever
leaving the area! Amazing, right? Well, I’ll show you that sunset next
week… and whales in the Pacific and Lovers Beach and The Arch and,
