We woke to a beautiful sunny day. Yeah, we got to wear shorts! It has been so cool that we have only worn long pants for most of the trip, so this was a big deal! Fortunately, we thought to bring our jackets along for the boat ride, as it was quite cool.
Paracas is a lovely little seaside town, with the standard handicraft stands and restaurants. Our favourite activity while waiting for the boat was watching the birds. The pelicans were enormous, and the seagull type birds were the most interesting divebombers, tucking in their wings and going straight down into the water like bullets.
