Don Luis Bulness Statue in Cabo

On March 29, 2018  there was a dedication ceremony, in honor of Don Luis Bulnes Molleda, one of the Baja Pioneros, along with an unveiling of his statue. Don Luis is considered to be the father of Sportfishing in Cabo San Lucas, among his many other accomplishments.

Jorge Tellez, on behalf of Marina Fundadores (Founders), requested and was granted permission to restore and relocate the monument.

Mid-afternoon, March 29, 2018, the dedication was held as the statue was unveiled on the malecón overlooking the Cabo San Lucas Marina at the Fonatur roundabout, next to Hotel Breathless and in front of Marina Fundadores in Cabo San Lucas.

AUTHOR’S PREFACE:  If when writing the closing chapter of this volume I could have looked ahead, reading in the future that a year and a half must intervene before final revision, such prospective delay would have been almost incomprehensible to me. And yet you who peruse these pages may smilingly understand how their author might turn abruptly from conventional life, seeking anew the fascination of the frontier.

Left: Ritchie’s house was located on the sandhill behind the beach at Cabo San Lucas Bay. The town was later entered around the site, but the vicious hurricane of 1941 forced it relocation a mile inland. Today on the spot stands the beautiful Hacienda Cabo San Lucas. a report catering primarily to fly-in visitors who land their planes on the hotel’s airstrip.
Right:  From Browne’s description of the Continental’s anchorage we can assume is rode on its ground tackle in the centre of this photograph. Guests of the new Hacienda enjoy this view of the bay and the cape beyond from the upstairs veranda. Browne imagined the bay a major sea-traffic stopping place, but it has not yet come to pass.
