Last Day Two Days

Saturday was another sea day.

 Sid did some of his laundry hung his pants on the deck and others in the shower.

 The sunset was so beautiful.  Earlier in the day they had a Mexican Sail-Away at poolside which we indulged in and then finished up at the buffet.  I only gained 4 pounds and I have lost 3 1/2 pounds since we have been home. 

At the Grand Atrium we listened to the Big Band, they played the music of Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, and others. Had our usual water drink.  Finished off listening to  Ariel until midnight. 


 Sid trying to get through the security without taking out his laptop.  No go.

Couldn't pass up this picture of a huge iguana in the airport.

Then home and Tina was waiting for us at the Reagan Airport.

What a delightful week.  It seems like a dream now.  Loved every minute of it, being with my sweetie and knowing that my children had to sacrifice to give us this cruise.  I truly love each and everyone of them and their spouses.  I can never thank them enough.

Costa Maya, Mexico and Cozumel, Mexico

The weather was so bad that we didn't even stop at Costa Maya.  That was disappointing to me.  I was looking forward to visiting a Mayan village.  Oh well.
We had a restful, fun day on the ship.  Exploring more and eating ice cream and food, food, food.

The weather was great for Cozumel.  Really it was hot, drank lots of water that day.

 I loved this street in Cozumel, Mexico. We were walking so we could catch the boat to take us to Playa del Carmen where we were meeting our tour guides from Alma LDS tours. 

 Looking over at our cruise ship.

These guys were just getting ready to jump when we got to Tulum.

 This is David our tour guide.  His father and family own and run Alma LDS Tours.  They are really good. He is standing by the Tree of Life.

 Explaining the tree of life.  Pretty close to the tree of life that Liz, the Mayan guide, told us about.
 The white tree is always found with the tree of life.  It is poison and the brown tree is its antidote

 Caste system of the Book of Mormon.

 Can you see the baby(Christ) holding on to the umbilical cord, (eternal life)

 Laying on of hands (red fingers)

 Steps out of the grave.

 Swimmers below Tulum.

 Both our tour Guides.

 Had a basket lunch at Subway.  Sooo Good.

 Boat back to Cozumel.

Sorry this was so long but I had a hard time deleting pictures.
Another great day.
