Okay, so I'm sorry - work has SUCKED lately and I haven't had any time to think about my blog. BUT, I know you've all been waiting for a post that talks more about our actual locations! :) So here goes! Warning - there are 30 some odd pictures in this post - don't get overwhelmed!
On Monday, I woke up and went and got my free massage. :) Then, we ate some, and waited around to get taxied off the boat for our first shore excursion. They can't get the ship right next to land, so they have to load us on a ship and take us there. So while we waited to get off the boat, we took lots of pics!
Then, it was FINALLY time to get off the ship and on to this boat.
And then we went swimming with dolphins! It was so fun. The only problem is that they won't let you take pictures while you're with the dolphins. So Eric snapped these shots from the computer with the photos they take for you.
You get to dance with the dolphin and kiss the dolphin. Our dolphin's name was Ko. This is Ko going in to get a kiss from Eric. When he went in to get a kiss from me, he kept pushing on my face and wouldn't stop. It was pretty funny.
Then you get to swim with Ko.
Ko is a boy and there was another dolphin that was a girl. When showing us how to tell the difference, both the dolphins started peeing. It was HILARIOUS. After all the fun, we got to take a picture with the girl dolphin - I can't remember her name.
After the dolphin excursion, we walked around Cabo. Cabo is an American Mexico. Most everything is in English, as well as Spanish. Sometimes, it's only in English.
This was a cool bike taxi!
See what I mean about the English?
Oh look! Spanish! :)
And back to a totally American store.
We went further into the town to try and see more, and tah dah - a cactus! :)
And a McDonalds... haha.
And here's a love bug look alike!
After we toured the place, we took a water taxi to Lover's Beach and the Arch. In the back of this picture you can see where our cruise ship is.
That would be the arch behind us.
The water taxi took us to look at the Sea Lions. They smell DISGUSTING, but cool to look at!
Then we were taken to the beach, and stayed there for about 45 minutes.
Can you guess what Eric is doing in this picture? Seriously... take a guess.
Isn't this pirate boat the coolest??
Instead of waiting the hour for our water taxi guy to came back, another taxi said he would take us! So we got back to the port and stood in line to get back on the cruise ship. This is Eric getting off the taxi onto the cruise ship.
And that was the end of our day in Cabo. Back on the boat, we ate lots, played games, swam, hung in the jacuzzi, etc. I think this was the night we saw the hypnotist. It might have been the next night - but either way, we saw Terry Stokes. The first show was HILARIOUS, that we went back to the second show that night. Eric tried to get me to volunteer, so Terry made him get up instead. It was hilarious- but Eric says he just played along - that he was very relaxed but don't think the hypnosis really worked for him cuz he had seen the first show and knew what was going to happen. But that's okay because it was still SO funny. In the first and second shows, Terry made two different women make out with their husbands so passionately whenever he said the word romance. One of the ladies was in her 70s - and Terry left the suggestion with her after the show as over, that whenever the husband said romance for the next three times, she would make out with him. I wonder if it really worked for him. haha
Next post - Mazatlan!
