pictures from a cruise – part three – Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta

Greetings!

Lots of pictures to share.  This series may have several installments over the next 2 weeks.

So, where to begin?  Let’s proceed by ports of call.

This is a scene from Cabo San Lucas at the “bottom” of the Baja California peninsula.  These rocks are somewhat similar to what we see in pictures of Phuket in southern Thailand several thousands of miles away.

Before continuing, we include a link to a map of the region. This map also shows 2 other ports of call from this cruise which will appear in the next essay(s).

Truly remarkable views of sea, sky and rocks.

Rocks at water’s edge.  A zen moment.  Peaceful reflections, or a time of no thinking.

Below is an example of the rocky, jagged edge of the land as it meets the sea.

How reptilian a view!  Reptiles with mammals.  This must be Earth.  Lucy has an iguana resting on the back of her neck and Gecko lizards clinging to her shirt.

We’ll post more pics from this cruise later in the week.
