Our day in Cabo San Lucas

Our day started with a ferry ride to shore. It was beautiful. We were met by vendors selling boat trips, snorkeling etc. We ended up with a glass bottom boat tour, time on a beach for snorkeling then a ride back to the dock. Our captain spoke only a little English and Shelby speaks a little Spanish so we made out pretty well. The boat was bright green (so we would remember which one was ours) and as for the glass bottom, it looked like they had cut out the bottom of the boat and replaced it with a couple of old house windows. The captain would pour ocean water on the windows so we could see the fish. The bay was beautiful and the whole boat trip was and adventure to remember.
Back on shore we had a great time looking in all the shops. A couple workers from the zoo were raising money by charging to hold a 6 week old lion cub, and as you can see we couldn't pass that chance up. The day was great. We took a ferry back to ship around 4pm and left Cabo at 5. Many great memories and stories.

What a sweet treat for your birthday... how thoughtful of Shelby. She's grown into such a beautiful young woman. It's been fun seeing pics of your family.
