We spent all of Monday in the surf. It began with a glass-bottom boat ride to the cape ("cabo" means cape--that makes sense) which is the end of the southern tip of the Baha Peninsula which is also the point where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez (sometimes called the Gulf of California). On the tour we saw some pelicans, sea lions and flying sting rays. (I've seen dolphin leap out of the water, but I did not know that sting rays take to the air as well.)
We also took east and west photographs of the landmark arch at the cape. After the boat tour, we did some snorkeling and beach hiking along the cliffs. (Yes, that is a yellow submarine in the background of photo #1. Double-click to enlarge.)
By the end of the day we had supper at a great Japanese restaurant here at RIU, and ended the night with a stroll along the beach. If you double-click the photo of Julie and me, you'll see that she is watching out for big waves from the corner of her eye. There seems to a rhythm of big waves followed by unexpected enormous waves, and one never knows when the huge waves will rush up the beach and knock you down. I had been wave running earlier in the afternoon, but the waves were not as big as that 18' curl I caught at sunset. That is by far the biggest wave I have ever seen up close in my life. My brother-in-law Tony had to out run this slightly smaller wave a few moments later.
I highly recommend this place!
