I finally figured out how to work the comments on my layout. Don't ask me how I did it. I don't know how it happened, but I was up late Friday night trying to figure it out. Go figure. It was an accident...
I know I owe you all more cruise news, but first, a little on our week last week. We finished our first full week of school and that went well. Her teacher seems really nice and I think this is going to be a really good year.
Last night, we met Micah and Gage at the Wilson County fair. It was superb weather, but being the last night, it was packed! But Gage was in a good mood and we were glad to get to see them.
Wednesday, August 6, Day 4 - Cozumel Mexico
We got up pretty early this day too and actually went and ate breakfast in the dining room. We meandered off the boat about 10am when the crowd had thinned out. The water in Cozumel is amazing. but the "mall area is alot like Thailand in that they want to follow you around and show you their wares and that really makes me uncomfortable. Jenna got a braid in her hair. We saw several kids with half or whole hair braided and luckily Jenna didn't want that! After we wandered around looking for the Harley shop (there's not one), we took a cab down the strip to eat. I had see this restaraunt in Grand Cayman and took a picture of it for my friend Stacey. Stacey...this is especially for you. :)
Finally, it was time for our excursion which was really more for Jenna. She got to swim with the dolphins and absolutely loved it! It was worth every penny we spent, but man, was it hot for those of us just observing!!!
Rather than eating in the room or the dining room, we had breakfast up on the lido deck. This day we just had a day at the beach. It was called Bannister Cove Beach. We had lunch there and just basically played around. It was beautiful here too, but the beach was very rough right at shore due to all the shell pieces. Further out, the sand was so soft, it felt like mud.
Friday, August 8, Day 6 - Isla Roatan, Honduras
We just did a beach day here too. I think I have already talked about how beautiful it was. In the midst of the poorest of the poor, there was this beautiful resort called Tabyana Bay. This is where we snorkeled and just had a really good time. Because I did spend so much time in the water, I didn't get a picture of it, but here are a few of the area in general.
We went back to the boat to have lunch this time because lunch on Belize was expensive. Our second formal night was this night...we were a bit red, but we got some good pictures nevertheless.
And then we had to try and stay up for the midnight buffet which was amazing as always. We did NOT stay up long enough to actually EAT any of it though. For those of you who have either never been on a cruise or never went to the midnight buffet, the entire display is made of food. It is really unbelievable what people can make out of fruit, cheese and the like!
OK, that's enough for now. The last two days were spent on the ship, so there's not really much to say...but there are a few more pictures I want to share...
Until next time.....
