Tuesday, January 29—Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Up early and loaded with strong coffee, we went to a lounge in the front of the ship to watch the sun rise over the Baja Peninsula; what another beautiful day God had provided! As the morning wore on, we reversed direction towards the back of the ship and food finding a table on the open deck. While eating a lite breakfast, whales were observed blowing and breaching in the Cortez Sea. We sailed along the western shore of the Baja Peninsula until the terminus of the Peninsula came into view. As we entered the Gulf of California, a cell signal from Mexico pinged our phones.

The Norwegian Gem anchored in the bay and the first tenders transported  passengers to shore for excursions. Kay and I waited until after lunch to “tender” to shore where we walked around the much too commercialized area, stopping near a small “7-11” type shop for cheap beer (Ultra at $1.50 a can versus $9 + 20% gratuity on the Gem). After a long walk we caught the tender back to the ship for hot tub and sun time.

Always a sucker for a lighthouse photo

Dinner was at one of the complimentary restaurants, and just okay. A stand up comedian, Johnny Cardinale, performed the show tonight; Kay liked him, but I thought he was not too funny.
