While Sunset Cove is currently in the editing and rejection process waiting to find a suitor, it is time I announce my second official project in the works.
This project does not yet have a name, but it will be a non-fictional account of my trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico last spring. I did post to my blog in anticipation for the trip and a general reflection of the trip last year, but this will be a detailed account of the goings on in a foreign country on spring break.
I met a few great people on the trip, as well as experienced new horizons with old friends. It was a trip I will never forget, full of events and experiences best fitted to tell in a book or movie as opposed to a blog post.
The open ocean was overwhelming, with land masses protruding in the distance and water so clear that depth was undetectable by sight. For the first time in my life, I discovered what it meant to view ocean as far as the eye could see. We swam with dolphins and lounged in the sand, drank tequila all day, and always made it back to the hotel in the star-littered hours of the early morning with gallons of water to stay hydrated.
The food wasn’t authentic, but was delicious nonetheless. Everything was cheap, especially the alcohol. We walked everywhere, from the hotel to the beach to restaurants to clubs and back to the hotel to sleep and do it all over again the next day.
The women were scantily-clad, the men were wild, and it was pure, unadulterated bliss for us kids as we basked in the farewell to our innocence.
If the featured image for this blog post looks familiar, that’s because it is on the cover of the paperback version of my book of poetry. Check it out here.
