Cruisin' Family Style

Here we are "peeling out" at top speed on our rented golf carts in Costa Maya. They were really fun for the trip into town along cobblestone road then gigantic cart eating potholed road. We did a little shopping then spent most of the day under the shady palms sipping our cool non-alc. drinks at Tequilla Beach. White sand, turquoise water, sea breezes...ah...

Mike and Tyfani look happy after their dives in Belize. They left the 3 little boys for the first time ever and thanks to the super grandma care by Tyf's mom all was well at home. The last time they dove together was in Hawaii six years ago!

Don't worry, Mark and I had plenty of deck time while "the marrieds" played.Our ports were all wonderful: Roatan Honduras, Belize, Costa Maya Mexico, and Great Stirrup Cay. Turquoise water, beautiful vegetation, soft white sand,pretty low key

We called these the "spring break playpens". Beginning at 10 am daily these 2 hot tubs were monopolized by the spring break college kids who managed to consume non stop alcohol without ever leaving the playpen until dinner time. It was quite amazing.

After the great dives on Roatan - Alyssa is modeling her pirate tan lines on her chest. X marks the spot (she may want to kill me for posting this but in the words of our favorite cruise commedian: "I don't care who you are, that's funny!"). Sort of a tattoo in reverse? Demonstration of what happens if you apply sunscreen early and don't reapply? Or maybe, she did it on purpose - sunscreen 15 in an X then sunscreen 30 the rest? Be sure to click on the image to get a close up.
