beach taco shop

i have to share these photos… this was so fuN! we left the perfect ‘resort life’ and headed out in search of a surf spot on the pacific side… it was up toward todos santos. k, so we rented a suburban and we weren’t really sure where we were going — so we found this beach … and drove about a mile off the main road on a really bad dirt road. tons of people were camped out and stuff. totally die hard surfer folk. so there was this little trailer converted into a surf shop, you can rent surf boards.

totally rad…
but i have to say… the highpoint of the day was the little AUTHENTIC taco shop… since of course, food is the center of my life! the guy that is the manager of the surf shop said that there was this hut that opened up around 2pm and has cold drinks, tacos, quesadillas. it looked a little sketch… you know, like bad enough that you KNOW it’s going to taste SO good!
they had beef, fish and shrimp…. (i hate seafood) and they were only 10pesos (about a buck each)…
i wonder how many we all ate… a lot!

    Glad you had a great vacation I’m sure you will be wishing you were back on the beach by the end of CHA.
    I can’t wait to see your booth and the prototypes. I just wish Advantus were as quick on production as you are on design:(

    Great pictures…they remind me of this wonderful artist from California…John Ramos. Check out his website. Maybe they will offer you some inspiration as you are scrapping your vacation. http://www.johnramos.com/TropicalMexico.htm
    P.S. I think we need a little sneak peak of your new product!

    I’m gonna need a map to that surf shack. I’m always looking for a new adventure in Cabo! We usually go in October and stay on the Pacific side. You’re making me miss the shrimp coctail and guacamole, not to mention the pool and ocean! Try out Margaritavilla while you’re there…good food, next to the marina!
    See ya at CHA…
