Cozumel International Cruise Port:: Tuesday, December 22, 2009

Yea for hot sunny weather! We woke up to beautiful weather. After breakfast at the buffet, we went back up to the room and got ready for the beach. We were sitting on the beach, under a palapa before 9am. We built sandcastles, played in the water, saw fish, went in the hot tubs overlooking the ocean, found shells, ate pizza and nachos from the snack bar, and had a blast. After a full morning at the beach, we stopped at the pool on the way back to our room. The waterfall was fun and even Cade could touch in that part of the pool. The pool wound around one of the snack bars and made a river like path. It was a lot of fun. After we ate lunch from the snack bar, we went up to the room for Cade’s nap. Abby and I went shopping while Derek stayed with Cade.

Abby and I walked a few blocks south to the Cozumel International Cruise Port. On the way in, a man asked me for my ship card and I told him I didn’t have one and that we just wanted to go shopping. He let us right in. We found T-shirts, ornaments, maracas, and another sun for the kitchen. Abby had a good time choosing the maracas and her own T-shirt.Cade woke up happy and we were ready for another round at the beach.

Abby had her usual late afternoon snack and we went back to the room to get cleaned up for dinner at the buffet. We were always the people waiting at the door when it opened. 6:30 is a late dinner time for us (especially the kids) and that is when they opened for dinner. After dinner we saw the sun setting and the kids had some strawberry daquiris while we waited for the fire and drum show.The show was pretty amazing but after awhile we had to move to the back row. The smell of gasoline was overpowering. The performers were amazing and all of us really enjoyed the show.

This was my favorite day of the whole vacation. It was great from start to finish!
