Photographer's Note

Sunset at Los Arcos is big business, there was a ‘pirate’ ship, and several smaller boats, one towing a parasailer and there were pelicans everywhere, including this fellow diving for a last meal before he lost the light. I'll post a inferior version of the boat on which we were sailing in the WS

It is almost impossible to avoid time-share presentations. On both trips we managed to escape the onslaught at the airport only to be captured while picking up a car on our prior visit or while checking into the hotel on this visit. The bribes to attend the presentation run from $250 US to a free dinner cruise. On the prior visit, three hours of time paid for our car rental. We sold out cheaply this time trading an hour of time for a Jazz Cruise.

We were disappointed in our expectation of live music. However, at least for me, the fact that the boat actually sailed, more than made up for the lack of live music. My spouse, the jazz fan and eternal ship's captain, was less charmed. At first he was pleased, pointing out with enthusiasm, “That’s the same mast we had on Wild Thing.” Soon he was grumbling, “He doesn’t have the mast rotated far enough,” and later, “He’s got the sails pulled in hard on a broad reach.”
