GO TO THE BACK OF THE CLASS ALL OF YOU WHO THINK BAJA CALIFORNIA IS THE USA.

LAST TIME I WAS HERE, I WENT TO SEE THE HOTEL CALIFORNIA.

I NOW REALISE WHAT I SHOULD HAVE DONE.

I AM TAKING A ZODIAC RIDE IN SEARCH OF WHALES.

MY RECORD WITH THIS TYPE OF THING IS NOT GOOD..

LEAVING THE SHIP BEHIND

A BIT TOO CLOSE?

WE THE HEAD OF LOOKING FOR WHALES.

I GET THE NORMAL - " OH SENOR - YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN HERE LAST WEEK, THERE WERE SO MANY WHALES ".

WHERE HAVE I HAVE HEARD THAT BEFORE...

TIME TO GO BACK.

THAT'S MY USUAL LUCK FOR THE DAY.

AND FOR A SWAN SONG.....

large_P1070306.jpg

TIME TO GO BACK TO SHORE.

THE DRIVER MUST HAVE BEEN IN A HURRY. THESE ZODIACS ARE NOT THE MOST COMFORTABLE OF BOATS. AND DID YOU KNOW THAT WATER IS MADE OF CONCRETE. THAT'S WHAT IT FEELS LIKE AS YOU CREST A WAVE AND SLAM DOWN AGAIN.

GREAT FUN.

AND THAT'S IT FOR THE CRUISE.

A QUICK SAIL TO SAN FRANCISCO, STRAIGHT ON THE PLANE & HOME.

THAT'S THE PLAN ANYWAY
