The town
Loreto was our favorite town. It was a pretty, quiet little town, and we had a "personal" tour guide. Russ and Jean have spent time in Loreto, so Russ invited us to join them in a tour.

After tendering in, we wandered to the main street, where there was music and dancers. The music was more reminiscent of native American music than typical Mexican music we hear. And I loved the dancers' skirts.

We did a little shopping and took a look at the mission, which was the first mission built on Baja.

And we saw some dogs…

After shopping, Russ scouted out places to eat and found Sofia's. The menu was very simple because Sofia did all the cooking herself. We ate well and enjoyed the experience.
The rest of the day
We headed back to the ship, where we rested and headed to dinner. Still full from lunch, I had one of the best dining room meals – very tasty chilled strawberry soup and salad.

John D. Smitherman, billed as "Three Tenors in One" put on an excellent show. He sang opera in Italian, Andrew Lloyd Weber Broadway songs, pop music, and most impressively, "Ol' Man River."

The towel animal for the night was a butterfly.
