November 20, 2014

As we ran down along the coast a change came over the spirit of the scene. We left fogs behind and entered the sunny climate and balmy air of the Mexican coast. Bright skies and blue sea came on, the days waxed longer and the nights shorter. We passed Cape San Lucas [yesterday], scarcely half a mile from the forbidding shore, and [today] crossed the Gulf of California. We had an unusually cool passage—the captain says the coolest he has ever made on this route.
