Our ship voyage on the Lindblad/National Geographic Venture took us around the southern part of Baja California, including the Gulf of California (also called the Sea of Cortez) and the Pacific side of the peninsula. The fun is now over, and we are waiting at the airport for a flight to San Francisco followed by a flight to Michigan and home. Here are a couple of photos from our very successful whale watching excursion yesterday. I have many more photos and will document more of our trip later.
UPDATE: Our flight from Mexico to San Francisco was abruptly canceled by Alaska Air. (I’ll never willingly fly them again.) They flew us to LA instead, and we had to go through some stressful times to get on a flight back to Michigan from LA instead of San Francisco. Fortunately, a very helpful and competent Delta agent straightened out our ticket situation without our having to pay for a new ticket. As of now we are waiting in the LA airport, hoping that another disaster does not occur!

hour and a half, and saw many whales!

to get to the airport— around 2 hours. We are just starting a very long day!
