February 26

Boat Tour; Flying High; “Captain, There Be Whales!”

After a lovely complimentary breakfast in the restaurant’s patio, which overlooks Cabo, we again carpooled down to the Marina. Several of us rented a boat to take us out to and around Land’s End and Los Arcos, stopping to see fish and sealions along the way:

Conversation with a vendor:

“Amigo, want to buy Cuban cigars?”

“No, gracias.”

“You doan smoke?”

“No.”

“I can teach you.”

We came back and had some lunch, then regrouped for an afternoon of parasailing, which Jeannine and I did tandem. It was wonderful, enhanced by being able to watch a mother grey whale and her baby surfacing and blowing beneath us.

On our way back in, we were fortunate enough to have them surface this close to our boat:

It was magical.

We returned home and had a well-earned shower. Tomorrow, we are being taken to a glass-blowing factory north of here. then returning for a sunset dinner cruise on a catamaran. We’re looking forward to it.
