|Beach Port of Loreto|
A short distance away is the La Mision Hotel where I grabbed some photos of their scenic grounds. They have a bar and restaurant with a great looking menu. I'm told they cater to the eco-tourists that flock to this area. I think it would be a great place for a wedding party.

We followed the crowd from the ship to an avenue with shops and restaurants where we succumbed to a souvenir wooden bowl. I believe it was Avenida Miguel Hidalgo. A quick stop at the church to say thanks for our blessings.
After a bunch of walking I decided to cab it back to the port.The cost of the ride $5! Between my horrible Spanish and the cabbies pretty good English I learn that a lot of American retirees are buying property here because the dollar goes a lot further. We will keep that in our memory banks. Back at the port we snapped a few final pictures. Avril is an avid bird watcher and wanders away from me in search of birds. She spotted a blue footed booby and exclaims such. She startles an elderly Chinese man as she points at the bird and says booby! He appears mortified and tries to put distance away from her. Crazy women and booby! We laughed about this the rest of the day. We headed back to ship and just before sunset we went up top for photo ops. The last tender boat is returning with the crew from shore. The wind has picked up the swell and the boat rises to the occasion.
