When someone says, “I think today was the best day of my life,” you tend to think the trip is off to a good start. Today we spent our first day by immersing ourselves in the vibrant beauty of Mexico. We explored via kayaks, paddleboards, motorboats, by ship, and on foot. I gave a talk about travel photography, and then guests were able to put tips into practice while hiking across the island to the Pacific Ocean.
National Geographic Sea Bird
Today was the last day of the Baja California season for National Geographic Sea Bird . We had a very nice day of whale-watching. The weather was pleasant, and grey whales were getting ready for their long migration north. Some of today’s highlights were the birds we found as we headed towards Canal de Rehusa, where we encountered California grey whales. Among the birds, we observed a majestic juvenile bald eagle, apparently in its third year of age. We spotted an immature peregrine falcon just behind a myriad of pelicans, gulls, and cormorants. We can certainly see a lot when we stop to look!
