we had three full days at sea but we managed to keep ourselves busy. we worked out a bit, laid out by the pool, hot tubbed, did some line dancing, cha cha and michael jackson's thriller, john performed some karaoke, hit the comedy club several times, played volleyball, saw tons of dolphins and whales, read some books, watched tons of movies, enjoyed all the food and of course caught up on some sleep.
cabo day 1
the first day off the ship was in cabo san lucas and we hit the shops and ate some local food and of course got tricked into being serenaded for 2 bucks. we are such suckers!! after that we found a local deal for 4 wheelers and headed out. we had a blast and john and i each almost flipped ourselves over the handler bars, but only once. it was so fun to ride around the beach and go over the sand dunes. while we were riding we got to see more whales it was pretty amazing. don't we look awesome with our gear on. after we were done i was so caked in sand that my eyelashes were white and my tears had dirt in them. i also ruined my shirt but it was well worth it.
cabo day 2
the second day in cabo we thought we would take it easy and let our bodies recover from the 4 wheeling. we took a water taxi around and saw lovers beach, the arch and my favorite part was seeing the seal chilling on the rocks.
while we were in cabo so was this amazing yacht. we heard so many theories as to who it belong to. one was that it was an advertisement for the makers of the yacht, they like to park it down there for all the multi-billionaires that hang out in cabo. another one was that it was owned by the guy from john deer. but my favorite and the one i choose to believe is that it belongs to bill gates and he lends it out to his executives. the thing was incredible, it had its own helicopter.
before the cruise i had heard a lot about the zip lining they have in puerto vallarta and i was determined to go. john was a trooper, he is a bit afraid of heights but he went and he had a blast. it was so cool to leave the city and go up into the mountains and see the beautiful jungle. now in full disclosure the pictures of the people zip lining are obviously not of us because we were too cheap to pay the $45 to get our own and they wouldn't let you bring your own camera but they were part of our group. i put the picture of the guy hanging upside down because i went down one line hanging upside down. after we got all the way down the zip lines we got to ride mules up to the top. after all of that excitement they had an awesome restaurant with the best rice and beans i've had.
