The Baja Pony Express published this photo today, and I thought it was just too cool not to put in the blog. Here’s the write up as it appeared in BPE1118:
PICTURE OF THE DAY sent in by Bill and Kay BarbourHere is a picture of Cabo when the only hotel on the beach was the Hacienda Hotel, gone now. You can see that the Marina was not yet dug. The picture was among my parents effects and is dated on the back "1966". The large sailing vessel in the harbor is the "Goodwill", wrecked years later on the rocks near Ensenada with the loss of all hands on board, while returning to Newport Beach, CA.
Below the photo was another comment: I Googled 'Yacht Goodwill' and found a great story about this boat at:
