As we neared shore several Humpback Whales spouted and rolled, but were several hundred yards out. This was the best I could do at getting a whale.... A possible Brown Booby flew past, but was too far to positively ID.
The ship's inhabitants made their way onto the deck as we neared the very tip of the peninsula at Land's End. The fabled arch came into view, and as we passed it I scoped several more Frigatebirds, Turkey Vultures, Brown Pelicans and Brandt's Cormorants. Several parasailing tours were out, and one particular victim caught my lens.
We decided not to leave the ship today, so I spent the afternoon on the balcony looking out at Land's End and photographed Frigatebirds as they drifted my way. Early afternoon clouds made way for some blue skies, which provided a better backdrop for the soaring dragons. Most birds were females, with their white chests and brown heads, but I did see a couple of juveniles with their white chests and white heads. Only one, all-black, adult male was seen among the 2 dozen or so birds that kept me from an afternoon nap. Just before we left Cabo San Lucas a large pirateship came into port and provided a nice portrait.
