Cabo San Lucas bids farewell to Tropical Storm Rick, which caused minimal damage

Tourists and residents in Cabo San Lucas are enjoying sunny skies and breathing a sigh of relief now that Tropical Storm Rick has passed the Baja California peninsula and is diminishing in strength as it approaches Mazatlan. 

The storm did not cause widespread flooding or destruction in the Cabo San Lucas area but large surf generated by the storm was responsible for the death of a 16-year-old boy and for eroding portions of Medano Beach.

The port remains closed but will reopen Thursday, which will mark the beginning of the Bisbee's Black & Blue Marlin Tournament, which will run through Saturday. The event is the world's richest billfish tournament;  anglers will compete for $3 million in prize money.

As a lasting memory, the remnants of Rick left a beautiful sunset on Tuesday night. Outposts would like to thank Tracy Ehrenberg, general manager of Pisces Sportfishing, for her reports and photos before, during and after the storm.

Now if only the marlin will cooperate!
