Google made this little collage below for me, it is a little preview of the fun morning that we had together in Cabo San Lucas. Such a fun day with these sweethearts.
Rewind a few hours, you find us getting ready in our room.
How do I love thee…
It was our first time going into another country together. I was SO nervous. I didn’t want to get separated from them, it was my #1 concern about the whole trip. Somehow that anxiety had transferred onto my poor Mirah who was VERY nervous about “loosing” us.
Even with all of the nervous feelings, and dragging of feet we made it to the main theater to wait to get off the ship.
As we pulled into port, we could see the lovely beaches, and feel the warm air, we were all loosing our nerves and juts began to be so excited.
There was some confusion due to a last minute time change of our excursion, but in the end we were able to get onto the first boat to Tender to port. The port day was pretty short, we had to be back by 6:15, and there was going to be a wait due to the whole tendering back and forth situation. It was after 10:30 when we got on the little tender boat. So we only really had 5 hours to do everything we wanted to do. We had planned a whole big day…but we really only got to some of them.
Here we are.
Me with my little seat mate.
We were the first passengers off of the ship.
The port was full of people selling tours, and trying to get tourists onto their boats.
We were able to book a little tour that took us to the end of the peninsula.
It was a glass bottom boat!
It was called the Sunset Dreamer
The kids were really stoked…to be back on a boat! Mirah was a little nervous.
We took on a few more people, dropped some girls off to a booze cruise…
We drove around the bay a little bit was was fun. This kid loved it.
After waiting to get more passengers, we were finally headed out of the main bay. We saw our ship.
It was overcast, and then bright, and then over cast, and then bright again. It was tricky to plan for, especially for the kids.
Our little boat slowed down, and our captain informed us that we were approaching an area where there were lots of tropical fish.
He had a little bag of tortilla bits that he instructed us to throw over board to lure the fishy’s to our boat:
We obediently did so.
The beautiful fish began to approach. I was actually really surprised about how many fish came. They were lovely.
The gulls arrived…and were eating our food for the fish!
Cuties in a boat.
We passed Lovers Beach on the bay side of the peninsula
Then we came to Neptune’s Thumb.
One of the best shots of the day.
A little peak to the Pacific Ocean
Now the Arche of Cabo
Well then it was time to check out some seals.
Then we headed out to end of the peninsula.
According to our captain, this was a famous pirates cave.
The other side of Lovers Beach is called Divorce Beach. The waves are bigger and much more violent.
The other side of the key hole.
And the arch.
Lots of crazy faces in the rocks.
This kid was being crazy, and trying to lick my face.
It was time to head back, and the wind began to pick up.
We passed the ship again, and you can see our room. Go 5 levels up from the life boats, then all the way to the front.
Snuggling to keep warm.
