Whale Watching From a Hotel Balcony in Cabo San Lucas

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico is just a short three hour flight from San Francisco. In the middle of a unusually raining winter, the flight seems even shorter.

I just returned from four days of laying in the sun, swimming in pools and sipping margaritas. We [Ciji and I] stayed at a really nice resort along the Pacific Ocean called Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach. Our room had a balcony with a virtually unobstructed view of the ocean, and while kicking back with a few ice cold Sols we saw a whale breach the surface of the water not too far off shore.

Lucky I had my Flip close by and was able to catch the Planet Earth moment as it happened. Cool, right!?

Mavericks Surf Contest is a Go!

Earlier this afternoon, the people (and surfers I would guess) behind Mavericks Surf Contest announced that the show would begin on Saturday, February 13th @ 8:00 am PT.

The contest was also announced via the official Mavericks Twitter account, @Mavericks_Surf

We may be there to take some photos of the event, but also might choose to watch from the bleachers at AT&T Park.
