We awoke to a little rocking as we cruised along the southern Pacific coast toward Magdalena Bay. Along the way, we enjoyed presentations by our naturalists: Shannon Malone spoke on ecological management in Baja California, and Jeff Campbell talked about the unique ecology of the gray whale. After lunch, we explored a wonderful part of Magdalena Island. This exotic terrain has a sandbar that is about a quarter-mile wide covered in ever-shifting sand dunes. On the Pacific side of the sandbar is a beautiful beach covered in sand dollars. Afterward, we were treated to the lovely tunes played by musical group Los Cayotes. What a beautiful and relaxing day we had.
