Back in town; one more week of vacation

I hope everyone in the U.S. is having a safe Memorial Day. My wife and I were out of town last week and got back on Friday. A couple people on my 2007 vacation suggestions page mentioned Mexico, and that’s where we decided to go. We found a resort in Los Cabos on the Baja peninsula and just relaxed down there for a week by the beach. The weather was perfect for reading summer books. Here’s the view (my wife took this picture):

Los Cabos

When I look at my personal Google Reader trends page I can see where I’ve been reading fewer feed items during May, and then no feeds at all last week, followed by a couple catch-up days:

I’m still on vacation this week. The first work-related thing I’ll do is talk with webmasters for SMX Seattle 2007 next week. I’ve never been to Seattle/Kirkland/Redmond/Bellevue before, so I may try to go up a little early and see the Google office up there. I’d love to see where the Google webmaster console magic happens. πŸ™‚

  1. Nice! I’ve never been to Mexico. If I were to go… It would be a “Food Vacation” where I would eat everything in sight for a week. (There are very few good Mexican restaurants in Hawaii.) Mexican Food is one of the very few things I miss about living on the mainland.

    So… Do you call home to talk to the cats? I watched a friends cats for about two weeks one time and they called me about every other day talk to the cats. πŸ™‚

  2. Sounds like a great vacation. I sailed down there from Ensenada once before I became a slave to the computer. Great place…

    I’m jealous πŸ™

  4. Me too. Nice photo Matt. Enjoy the rest of your vacation.

  5. Looks like there’s some nice groundswell action happening in the water in the background of the picture. Hope you took your surfboard along with you. I love Los Cabos breaks Monumento and Costa Azul (aka Zippers), some powerful surfing there. aaah, Matt hope you’re not just spending your time reading those books that piled up from Amazon. Get out and enjoy the surf and sand !!

  6. You should definitely come over to the Kirkland office – lunch is good (as always) this week πŸ™‚

  7. Nice photo i did n’t go to out of india but when ever i will go there i will find this place. enjoy your rest vacation.

  8. That is an impressive image, I would love to just jump in for a dip in that sea.

  9. I am so jealous, that picture looks stunning, and so peacful at the same time!
    Did you manage to make good inroads to your Amazon pile? πŸ˜›

  10. Wow, good choice Mr. Cutts.
    Can’t wait to have you back.


  11. What a beautiful view… :-), its been raining solid for the last week in the UK.

    Anyway glad your back, been looking at my Google Tabs hourly awaiting your next post…. :-)….

    My personalised home page feels empty unless I see regular updates from the Matt Cutts blog….

  12. Hi Matt, i love your picture on your site πŸ˜€

  13. Well, I’ve been starring at the pile of books from Amazon for the last week in your last post – get them all read, did you even get them open?

  14. Amazing view…have you finished your Amazon pile?

  15. You still should have picked Niagara Falls, Matt. The view from one of the hotel rooms of the Falls in May is something to see…especially at night. πŸ™‚

  16. Matt did you visit the Matt Cutts/ Google Shrine while you were on vacation?

  17. Steve, visiting the Kirkland office sounds good to me. πŸ™‚

    Dyce, Tom, and Jayanta, I’ve made a pretty good dent in the Amazon pile, but I didn’t finish all of them.

    M.W.A., maybe I’ll catch that next year. πŸ™‚

  18. Hey Matt,

    Welcome to Kirkland! Hopefully this nice weather (70 -80 degrees) will last while your up here. πŸ™‚

    Have you heard about the Wing Dome? Hands down the best chicken wings in town. And, if you have the number 7 spicy.. you get you picture on the wall!

    Feel free to give me a ring or shoot an email my way. It would be fun to meet up with you!

    – Scott

  19. Did you make sure to ask for no salt on the Margaritas? πŸ˜€ Welcome back

  35. Buenos Dias SeΓ±or Matt,

    I am glad you enjoyed your vacations here in Mexico. If you a chance to come back again, I’d like to recommend you south Mexico, the riviera Maya is awesome, you will really enjoy all the beautiful places and of course Cancun sand!. Remember that ChichΓ©n ItzΓ‘ is nominated for the new seven wonders of the world.

    Hasta la Vista πŸ™‚

  36. I was in Cabo for my honeymoon last year, did you get a chance to swim with the dolphins, so worth every penny, I recommend to anyone visiting Cabo.

  37. Which part of Mexico that’s so beautiful ?
    Regards matt

  39. The sea looks very quiet. It is always more choppy in our little town of Apollo Bay.

  40. I was in Florida for a fly/drive, nice place.
