Los Cabos is known as "The end of the earth", as it is the last piece of land in the Baja California Peninsula; this vast and generous territory is shared by Mexico and the United States.

Accessible from the Medano Beach or marina in Cabo San Lucas, the rugged El Arco (The Arch), also known as Land's End, is the remarkable rock formation rising out of the Sea of Cortez that has become the iconic landmark of Los Cabos. It is called Land's End because, as the crow flies, if you followed a line south from here, you would not touch land again until you reached the South Pole.

Sea lions frequent the area (especially along the Los Frailes rock formation), Seals hang out on the rocks, and Land's End remains excellent for couples looking for a romantic spot to see the sunset.

The kite gathering in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, is different from other Kite Parties: There is no schedule. There is no sound system. There is no program, competition, or formal demonstrations. It's nothing but relaxing.

Flying base are Cabo's wide open beaches with smooth winds and clear, sunny skies. The Kites are as exciting as seen at larger events. With the wind right off the water, the kites fly each day as often as their owners please. Traffic on the beach is light with no kids wandering uninvited among the lines. It is more like an adult social with kites.

Now, stretch you imagination to include a luxury, all-inclusive hotel-resort. What could be better than that?

The invention of the wheel and the wheelbarrow changed the world forever. By adding a wheel to a hand operated vehicle, it became possible for one man to do the work of two. Not only could he do the same work, he could move more swiftly and with less effort. The first recorded use of this tool occurred in ancient China.

Since the invention of the wheelbarrow in the 1st century BC, man has found it much easier to move heavy loads. Those used in China made it possible for one, and on occasion two men to transport up to six adults and their baggage relatively effortlessly. Over the course of the next 2,000 years, the design has only undergone a few minor changes to suit the purpose for which the cart was being used.

There are literally millions of wheelbarrows in use all over the world in construction, agriculture, and dozens of other endeavors, all with the sole intent of making man's life just a little bit easier.

If you have ever driven through Texas, then you have probably seen a pumpjack or two - or ten - depending on what part of the state you are in.

Also called oil pump, oil horse, donkey pumper, nodding donkey, pumping unit, horsehead pump, rocking horse, beam pump, dinosaur, sucker rod pump (SRP), grasshopper pump, Big Texan, thirsty bird, or jack pump, they are used to mechanically lift oil out of wells and are plentiful in oil-rich areas across the state of Texas.

Old pump jacks, mangled pieces of pipe and he millions of orphaned oil and gas wells that lie underneath these rusting tombstones, are not just fading away into the background. When they were built, the environment was not part of the equation.

Thousands and thousands of these so called 'orphans' over the years have cost the State of Texas millions to clean up and plug, and these archaic remnants of the Texas oil industry, keep littering the otherwise beautiful rural Texas landscape.

Located at the historic center of the city, San Fernando Cathedral and its surrounding plazas served as the center of daily life in San Antonio throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. The church building as it exists today is part Spanish Colonial that dates from 1739 together with a larger, French Gothic-style nave which was added about 1874. This church is the oldest operating cathedral in the United States.

While its current structure has been greatly expanded and renovated over the years, the walls of the original church form the sanctuary of the cathedral today. Built with austere white stone and twin steeples, the San Fernando De Bexar Cathedral has a commanding presence at first glance. In traditional French Gothic form, the interior of the San Fernando Cathedral is a feast for the eyes. Admire the statues, intricate detail found in the stained glass windows and dramatic columns and archways. The history of the cathedral is collectively told through icons and objects throughout.

The Cathedral of San Fernando isn't just a historical landmark and a sanctuary that provides a place for worship, but has become the ecumenical, cultural, civic and service center of San Antonio, TX.

San Fernando De Béxar Cathedral in San Antonio, Texas, is one of the oldest cathedrals in the United States.

The focus of the cathedral is the large retablos around the tabernacle. It was crafted in Seville, and includes three gold-leaf retablos (altar pieces - a Mexican form of wooden reredos), masterpieces of carving and gilding created to replace the original retablos lost in an 1828 fire. The central retablo in the 18th century style is 24 by 16 feet, gilded in 24-carat gold, and dedicated to "Jesus Christ, Word and Sacrament;" it houses both the tabernacle and statues of the four evangelists Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

The newly-restored San Fernando Cathedral serves as a tribute to the traditional Spanish artwork. The Cathedral is visited by people from all over the world each year. Make sure to stop by for a little while on your trip to San Antonio.

Stained Glass Window San Fernando De Bexar Cathedral in San Antonio, Texas
Here:
St. Anthony (left) and
St. Francis Xavier (right)
San Fernando De Béxar Cathedral is not only beautiful and sacred but also historical.

The site for the Church of San Fernando was selected on July 2, 1731, when Juan Antonio Pérez de Almazán, captain of the Presidio of San Antonio, laid out a central square for the villa of San Fernando de Bexar, as San Antonio was then called. The original San Fernando Church was constructed between 1738 and 1749. The walls of this church now form the San Fernando Cathedral’s sanctuary. The dome of the original church was the point from which all mileage in Texas was measured in the 1700s.

The San Fernando Cathedral is well-maintained, and mass still goes on daily. Inside the church there are many beautiful points of interest, for example, the gold gilded alter, intricate stained glass windows and dramatic columns and archways.
